My son was born July 13th. His due date was July 26th.  On July 12th I went to a morning movie for some girl time with some friends. That afternoon was spent lounging around the pool with friends. Around 5pm I started to feel crummy so I went home and took a nap. I woke up about 8pm with faint cramps like I had to go to the bathroom. When I got to the bathroom I noticed I was leaking and thought maybe I just couldn't hold it lol. I decided to take a shower and my water fully broke. I called my hubby from work and we went to the hospital. I was only dilated to 1. By midnight I had made no progress so they started pitocin. I didn't fully dilate and give birth until 4:53pm on July 13th. I was so exhausted and aggravated because I wanted food and water lol. As much as I wanted it do just be over with then, I wish I could re-live it over again.

On June 30 I went in for my 36 week appointment! Just for a check up. Something was very wrong. Baby girl had lost a whole pound in just a week so my Dr decided that day to do a c- section . I went to the hospital for prep at 12 pm that day . was so terrified she wouldn't make it. So at 5 they took me back did the epidural and took my baby . I flat lined twice and lost 9 pints of blood. Was in recovery for 3 hours. I couldn't hold my baby untill midnight ! Baby girl weighed in at 4lb 4oz 19 inchs long. Thank god no medical problems exc she had a hard time keeping her weight bc she couldn't stay worm. She stayed at the hospital for 4 days after I was released. Now she is healthy 6lb 11 oz 2 months old. She wasn't due till July 29th

On July 6th I lost my mucous plug at work around 8:30 am. Didn't think much of it since a lot of women don't have their baby til weeks after they lose their plug but anyway,  around 6:50pm the same day I was laying on my bed talking to my 7 year old and WHOOSH my water broke!! I sat up really quick and said OH S*** , my son started freaking out thinking the baby was about to come out lol
I get to the hopital and I'm only 1 cm and not having any contractions at all. Hours went by and I wasn't dilating past 3cm so they put me on pitocin. 3 hours later contractions came out of nowhere and man they were so strong!!! Couldn't get epidural until I reached 5cm so about 2 hours of back to back painful contractions and I finally reached 5cm .
By this time it was 3am the next morning and it was slowly dilating.  At 6am I was 9.5 cm so the doctor had me go ahead and start pushing because she had a scheduled c sections at 7:30am she didn't want to be late for. Two terrible hours of pushing and throwing up... but my little girl arrived at 7:48am on July 7th. I will never forget any moment of those two days <3

My labor and delivery story.

I was beyond over being pregnant and just wanted to have my baby girl in mine and her daddy's arms. So the day before my due date witch was July 23,2015 I told my fiance let's get her on out. So we went walking didn't last very long because it started to rain. So we went home around 6p.m made dinner I started having little cramps. So by like 8 I told him let's do some more walking. So I went up and down stairs and walked around our apartment. Then went back in showered. My fiance feel asleep around 11 to 12 ish I stayed up watching a movie, the whole time I was having more cramps. So I just told myself maybe if I go to sleep they will go away. Well nope by one they seemed to come back to back so I got on my phone and started to time them. I noticed they where only 1 minute apart. So I woke my fiance up and told him I believe it's time. So we left around 2 got to labor and delivery around 3:15 I got checked and was adjust 3cm dilated. So I had to walk around for an hour by 5 I was 4cm. So they started my paper work got my room by 6:50 by then I was almost 5 by 7:00 I got my epidural. My contractions where so close together I guess my daughter couldn't handle them. So her heart rate kept dropping. By the time I hit 9cm they told me to start pushing but stunting went wrong I had about 7 nurses just rush into my room telling me to hurry up and flip to one side because my daughters heart rate dropped bad and wouldn't come back up that didn't work so I had to turn to my other side still didn't work so they put me on all 4. By then my daughter had flipped breech and her foot was coming out. So they rushed me in for an emergency c-section. By 12:50 I had a beautiful healthy baby girl. Every ounce of pain I would do it all over again :)
