So at 4:30am on Saturday (11/14) I was still up and my water broke I had a towel so my bed was safe <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> I went cleaned up and tried to go back to sleep well that did not work I was to excited and nervous! so I just layed there and rested. then It finished breaking at 5ish so I went down woke up Dh (him and Ds like have "sleep downs" where they stay up late and sleep on the couch<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> ) the contractions started soon there after. I then woke my mother up at 6:30ish told her she had me call the ob as contractions were 4 minutes apart. My sister came to stay with Ds and then I woke Ds up to tell him that I was going to go have his brother he gave me a big hug cried a little because he wanted me to stay but then was perfectly fine because my nephews where comeing over when they woke up<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngtongue.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Stick Out Tongue"> we got to the hospital (it was about 7:45am) and I was at 6cm I thew up probaly 4 times I didn't get an eppi (I asked but luckily my ob said you told me not to give you one and you are at 6cm lets wait and see what happens<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> )but I got the neuban so I could rest as I really did not sleep that night that was a godsend I liked that I still had feeling and expeareance the labor and birth but was able to relax I used my hypnobabies it ticked me off until the nuban started <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> Dh was wonderful waayy better than I thought he would do I thought he would get nervous and scared but he was great. My mother was there also (of course) she did reiki and pushed on my back for me. I didn't get the nuban until about 9:00am. I started to push at 10:40ish and he was in my arms at 10:50am<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/img/vbsmilies/smilies/joy.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="joy"> after only 5 pushes I have only a second degree tear <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> He is now nurseing amazing he had a tiny latch issue but the lactation nurse was wonderful and helped me soooo much so now he is a champ he was 8.7 and 20 1/2inches (exactly like his big brother was!) he had facial bruising really bad because of his head position but now it is almost totally gone! Ohh he only lost 6 oz!!!! and my milk totally came in yesterday afternoon!<br>
This labor was crazy intense compared to Ds1's and this labor was longer Ds1 was 45 minutes and way less intense <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/headscratch.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="headscratch"> I was so worried the whole pregnancy that something would go wrong and nothing did he pinked up in less than a minute, no cord around the neck nothing but perfection!!!!!<br>
He is a sleepy baby he is hardly ever awake but as long as he is happy and content I am happy. Ds1 loves to help out so far but he is still just wanting his normal routine and as long as he has that he is happy so then I am happy<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> last night we all did good we are having one big "sleep down" until I can go upstairs easily!<br>
We are all so happy and in love with this boy it seems like he has always been here!!!!
