Labor & birth story!!!

So on jan 7 I had an appt. at 9 I was 4days over due I was trying everything to go into labor every home remedy it was and nothing was seeming to work at I didn't feel any contractions or any pain or anything I went to see my doc he was shocked that I was over due but Prior to that I was only 1cm dilated when I saw him the week before.....
Anywhoo he checked my cervix and what do u know I was almost 6cm dilated. He said head across the street to labor & delivery bc ur in labor I said no way ur lying he said no seriously u are I said wow I was so excited I called my husband he couldn't believe it he left work & came to the hospital
So I get over to labor & delivery get checked in and settled in my room it was almost 11 o'clock The doctor came in to check my cervix again I was 7 1/2 cm by then they hooked me up to the iv & all that good stuff all natural birth no epidural so they started monitoring my contractions so around 145pm the doc came back to check me I was 10cm & ready to push I didn't feel my contractions at all seeing that I have a high pain tolerance I guess so....

At 2:07pm I had my baby girl Ava Elizabeth wt 6lbs 15oz 19in long omg im in love all over again...
   Sorry for the long story :)
