Around 5:30 I started having what I thought were BH just tight not uncomfortable at all. My daycare girl got picked up and we started getting ready to go to my ILs for DD late birthday dinner.<br>
Around 6:30 on our way there I had a contraction that I had to breathe through. Still thinking prodomal labor I ignored it.<br><br><br>
We sat down to dinner and I had 2 strong ones SIL had been watching the clock and told me they were 5 minutes apart.<br>
DD had still not had her cake or opened her presents. By this time I knew I needed to go home and at least get checked.<br><br>
I paged my MWs and we decided to leave the kids there so they could do cake and presents. DD was very insistent that she didn't want to miss the birth. I told her Daddy would come back to get them.<br>
DH was going to take me home and go pick them up once my Mom was at home with me.<br>
It was just before 7 that we got home and I started to realise that it was really labor.<br><br>
The contractions were getting increasingly strong so I got in a hot shower.<br>
The MWs arrived and checked me and the contractions.<br>
I was 4 cm 100% effaced with good strong contractions.<br><br>
I got into the tub and labored in there. DH went to get the kids but came back missing DD. He said she wanted to sleep over at Nanas and said I could have the baby another night.<br><br>
DD has never spent the night away from me and I never wanted her to spend the night at my ILs for any reason.<br><br>
By this point my contractions were 2 minutes apart and I wasn't in the right mind to say she needed to be home.<br><br>
DS was so amazing. He was bringing me drinks in the tub, telling everyone to be quiet when mama was "making a noise" and telling me I was doing good<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br><br>
I started feeling pushy at the end of a few contractions. About 3 contractions or so later at 9:55 Colton was born into my hands and I lifted him onto my chest.<br><br>
I came away without even a scratch.<br><br>
It was an absolutly perfect birth <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
The only thing that I am upset about is poor DD. She cried all the way home and was not herself at all.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">

That is so so sad about your DD, my DD is the same age as yours and I know how it would truely break her heart if she was expecting something and didn't get it! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/greensad.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">
