I was at work Tues morning ( I am an RN at a Birthing Center) and my water broke all over, about 8:15 am, in the hallway, no less!. So I became a patient. Labor did not start on its own, so I accepted pitocin at 4:00 pm. Surges started at 4:17pm, and he was born at 9:07 pm. It was a wonderful labor, had a wonderful nurse/friend/doula and my husband was great. He was born after 13 minutes of side lying pushing, came out pink and nurses awesome. My other two kids were overdue, so this was way unexpected!! But he is great, has never left my room, and is beautiful and sweet and soft. He weighs 5lb 12.5 oz and 17.5 inches long.
Update: Doing wonderful. Weight is up to 5lb 7 oz (was 5 lb 4 oz when we left the BC), nursing every 1.5-2.5 hours, no jaundice. Looks beautiful and sweet!!! Good luck to everyone!
