now that i have more time i thought that i would share my delivery story.  so last monday night i thought that i was leaking pee, everyone told me that it is uncommon for your water to break b4 labor begins, and also that first babies rarley come early.  so i was pretty much in denial that i was about to begin labor and would be holding my son that day!  within a few hours or water slowly beginning to leak, i started having contractions so i showered, shaved, and tried to go to bed to get some rest for the delivery.  it got really intense really quickly.  dr. told me to call when they were 5min apart, by the time i started timing them they were about 5 min apart.  finally woke BF after a few hours.  i still thought that i was in false labor or something so i wouldn't let him call family, dr., or doula.  finally doula came over at about 8 am, i was in very active labor and quite a bit of pain so we all headed to hospital.  at the hospital contractions were a minute apart, so they brought me right to delivery room, checked me, i was fully dialated and they wanted me to start pushing.  i had wanted a natural birth and had a specific birthplan which i never even got out of my bag before i was on the table.  i ended up having an intrathecal which supposedly lasts 2 hours for pain, it only helped for about 30 min.  i pushed for an hour and 1/2 and was holding ryder less then 3 hours after we got to hospital.  i never even got to use the wonderful birthing tubs in the rooms either!!  start to finish everything was over in 12 hours.

i had tested positive for my strep b test and was unable to receive full antibiotic treatment b4 delivery.  ryder showed + results for an infection, so we are still at hospital so he can received IV antibiotics all week!!  we are finally going home tomorrow, tuesday.  the hospital discharged me but has allowed me to stay in my room to be with ryder since i am breastfeeding and live an hour away.  i am just so tired of being here, i want to bring him home!!  the positve thing is that i have been able to receive alot of help with Breast feeding since he would not latch at all for first few days, now he is doing really well at it, but i have to use a nipple shield everytime, now i'm trying to get rid of that.  even though my L&D did nto go the way i had planned according to birth plan, everything was great the way it ended up. the experience overall was great!
