Rebeca Marie is here!! Yay!!!

Well ladies my newest baby is here. She came on the first hours of Thursday morning 12:10am and weigh 7lbs5oz and 20 inches long.  She has blond hair, just like her father when he was a baby, and her grandma (my mom) and her grandfather (his dad).

Anyways, it was a very short labor.  I thought I wasn't going to make it to the hospital.  As most of you know, I was 3 cm for like 3 weeks.  and nothing was happening.  I kept getting contractions, but then they would stop.  on Wednesday morning Iwas getting really strong ones that were 10 minutes apart but never got closer together, so I went about my day.  I went to sleep at 9:30pm and then at 10:06pm i got one.  It really hurt, but again I didn't think any of it.  Another one came at 10:18pm, then another at 10:30pm and another at 10:40pm.  that one got me of my bed crying.  I couldn't take the pain, then they started coming every two minutes.  My water never broke and as I'm getting my other girls ready to take them to grandma's house I'm starting to feel the need to push.  Everytime i got one, I would bear down. My dh was really scared.  He kept trying to dress me while I was getting a contraction.

Well, the drive to my mom's house was agonizing.  They kept cooming closer and stronger. We finally made it to the hospital, and I kept telling them I need to push.  They said no, just breathe.  At this point I couldn't breathe.  I got checked and I was 7cm 100%effaced and she was at 0 station with "bulging bag of waters". I kept wanting to push, so i told them to brake my waters and that did the trick, I started pushing and she came out after 3 pushes,  I was surprised that it was a short labor.  I'm just happy is over with.  Now I get to experience the joys of having 2 babies so close in age.  Thanks ladies for all the advice, and all the good wishes.
