UPDATE: Arie's Birth Story<br><br><br>
Woke up at 11:50pm to do one of the several usual rounds to the potty,<br>
Peed and looked at my undies and there was a tiny wet spot, and I thought, hmmm I wonder if this is my water breaking? I wonder if I can go to my prenatal aquacise class today? I can ask Kellie, midwife, to check if its water tomorrow?<br>
Went back to bed, then woke up and thought I need to wash my hair. Took a shower, then went to pee and had a bloody show, yaaah baby could be here soon, maybe in the morning????<br>
Needed to clean the bathrooms, we planned for a water birth...Cleaned all three bathrooms then my husband woke, it was 1am or so..told him I think I am in labor, though I wasn't in pain yet so I wasn't sure if it was pre labor... he jumped up nervous and excited and preceded to help me do the final chores, and continuously asked me should we call the midwife... I said not yet I think it will be a while, as I was cleaning the tub, I was feeling the pains....I rested on the bed, side lying, then as the contractions were stronger, lets call the midwife, I couldn't speak during the contractions. 2:15 am<br>
Then I was running to the toilet, was the most comfortable place to be, took a shower, was having to focus!<br>
Back on the toilet again!<br>
Got off was kneeling on the floor and I looked at my belly-how strong it was!<br>
I forgot how intense labor is!<br>
Was back on the toilet, my hubby said I was talking in Spanish in pain!<br>
Was feeling pressure, and put my fingers inside and felt Arie's head very low right there!<br>
Told my husband Arie's coming soon!<br>
He nervously asked, should we call the midwife again-no she s on the way! Don't want her to get nervous....<br>
She arrives! 3:12am<br>
I told her, he s coming.<br>
She said should we put water in the tub?<br><br>
She checked FHT and I put my hand on him and my perineum and there he was-all of Arie came out in 1 push! From head to toe! 3:18am<br>
Arie was crying and breathing perfect! He is beautiful!<br>
Arie suckled and the placenta was born!<br>
I could barely believe that he came so quick!<br>
I was expecting a longer pregnancy and labor!<br>
Guess you never know what to expect in birth!<br>
