Heres my birth story
heres my birth story~
Monday I went to the Dr he said I was 3 cm and my cervix was very soft.
I went home and just didnt feel well.
I went to bed and around 1;45 am woke to a contrax... they started up at 4 min apart. I waited till 2 45 then called my Dr he said I could either wait alittle longer or go in and since we live 25 min away we chose to go in. we got there at 4. They checked me and I was 4cm I was told to walk for 1 hour and then get re-checked.. My DH & I walked the halls and I walked through each contrax which were 3 min apart.
I came back by then my DR was there and My midwife which was awesome to have them both! I got checked and I was at 6cm so I asked for the epidural. My contrax were getting harder... The anethesiolgost took over an hour and I realized soemthing was wrong. I was hunched over my midwife while she just kept talking to me .. at that point the epi Dr said he was sorry he couldnt get the epi in because he had inserted it into my blood vessel and had to remove it. I knew at that point I was going to have this baby pain med free. they let me walk to the bathroom when I came back My DR said let me check I think your at 10cm... this was at 8:15 sure enough I was... the DR and Midwife said If I listened to them and pushed exactly like they said I could have the baby in 3 pushes.. I have never experienced pain like that in my life....I did exactly what they said and BAM in 3 pushes a beautiful very pink GIRL came out!!!! 7 lbs 5 oz 19.5 inches long. Hardly any hair!!! I kept screaming its a GIRL!!!!!!

Sounds like you were quite the trooper with the unexpected change in what you were expecting for giving birth.
