At 11:30pm baby boy Oliver decided to come into the world.

I was having contractions at home starting at 7:30 - and did not believe it was the real thing. After ignoring them for an hour I called the midwife who said to go get checked out if I wanted to. I was **** worried it wasn't the real thing, but came in anyways. We got to the hospital at 9pm - I was 6-7 cm dialated - definitly the real thing.
Was monitored for a while - worst part was darn hep lock - after 5 times finally it went in. My veins kept rolling on them. I was scrfeaming louder in pain from that than anytime during childbirth. I was even in tears and the one girl gave up after 3 attempts and let another nurse try. It was horrid!
Labored in tub for a while, back to bed on all fours , on side, on other side...pushed a short time and my chunky monkey was out

All natural, 9lbs!!!, 21 inches, 4 hours total labor - arrived 5 days after due date

: Mother (4/11/06) to Josephine and (4/23/09) to Oliver and baby (due June 1st)

Babies: Angel (6/29/02), Tiberius (3/8/11), Lillianna (12/27/11)

I totally feel you on the hep lock. Mine took forever too and was horrid. I blew the first one out (vein burst) so they had to go to the other hand. I wouldn't let them take it out until I was leaving the hospital (just in case they thought of something they wanted to give me intravenously. ). I must have seemed so weird, but once it was in, I was very protective of it.

Congrats mama! Welcome baby Oliver!!! :

XOXO

:Congratulations!!! :

Welcome, Oliver!

So sorry about the incident with the heplock. I'm so sensitive in general, couldn't imagine that during labor.

Congratulations, Melissa! I understand about getting chunky monkeys out - mine was 9'11 and I had a hard time with the hep lock, too! That's hard to endure in the thick of labor. I wish I'd been at a 6 or 7 when I got in - I must be a bit wimpy. I wanted an epidural at 5 but stuck it out and delivered all natural too. I can't wait to see pictures of your little guy! :

WELCOME, OLIVER!

Happy wife and also mommy to my two boys, 12-12-07 (c-sec) and 04-05-09 (vbac!) and another due in December.
