my birth story<3

I will try to shorten it up as much as possible.

on November 3rd I got my cerclage removed.  right than I was 2cm dilated. (I was 35w 4d) I went home and slept. at 3a.m. on november 4th I woke up having contractions. they wouldn't go away like before and they kept getting stronger and closer together. at 5a.m. we headed to the hospital. by than I was 4cm so my dr. decided to admit me to a room. I stayed at a 4 for a while. I was contracting all day without any pain medication. my water had not broken yet, but my doctor asked if I wanted it broken. I said no and asked to go naturally. I went all night contracting and they were intense!! also was dilated to a 7 by 5 pm. no sleep for me. I went to the jacuzzi tub at 4am. (on November 5th) (it really helped me to relax and dilate) still contracting I started bleeding in the tub. I called the nurse in and she got me back into my bed immediately, thinking my water had broke she called my doctor. my doctor came and checked me, my water did not break. I was in pain so I had her break my water. immediately I felt pressure, than my contractions got really bad, i knew hecwas ready! and within less than 10min of pushing I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy<3 26 hours of labor, he was one month early, with a strong cry, weighing in at 4lbs 14oz. absolutely perfect. we were able to go home two days later. on his due date, December 6th, he weighed 7lbs 1 oz. <3
