Baby arrived!

Jonah was 4 days overdue! Went to hospital for a non stress test and blood work for hbp. I was 4 cm dilated and they admitted us. Broke my water at 6:30. Active painful labor started around 10 pm. All natural. No epidural/pain meds. Lots of deep breathing and the support of my amazing husband. 1:00 am Dr. Came in .... I was pushing instinctively, baby was coming quick, his shoulder was stuck behind my pubic bone, head was delivered and his heart rate was dropping. Dr. Used vacuum and episiotomy, I gave one more big push and had my big boy out! 9lbs. 4 oz. 22 in. Born at 1:12 am healthy boy and healthy mama. Very sore, but so happy! Good luck and God bless!

Thank you ladies! The wait was worth it and so was the pain! No pain, no gain! There's nothing more precious than holding your new baby and seeing that sweet face you've waited so long to meet, esp especially overdue! Any one in need of support or questions about a non medicated delivery please message me and I'd be happy to give you some tips that helped me! Xoxox

I just had my daughter on the 3rd and I tried so hard to do a natural birth, but after my water broke, my contractions were too close together and so painful they made me cry so hard. I am happy for you and amazed that you did it 100% natural. Congrats on that alone mama! And congrats on your little boy. :)
