So Wednesday night I just could not go to sleep, wasn't in any sort of pain was just wide awake. I started to feel cramping at 2am which I had felt plenty of times before so I wasn't thinking much of it. I decide to go lay down and go to bed which took forever. At some point between 2 and 3 I noticed I was having what I thought were braxton hicks contractions brought on by holding my urine which happened plenty of times before so I got up to go to the bathroom and I did that at least 10-15 times when I realized these contractions weren't stopping so there was no use me trying to go to bed because I would just keep getting up to go to the bathroom. So I start to time them and they are irregular going from 9 to 8 to 5 then three back to 8 that kind of thing at 3:55 I am realizing that they hurt and that I will continue to time them for the next hour and then I will call labor and delivery. Well an hour passes and the contractions are still irregular but painful to the point where I cannot talk or walk through the contractions and so we call l&d and they say to come in. On the way to my parents to drop of JT my husband is telling me he thinks this is it and jokingly says by the time we get to l&d that I would be 9cm dilated. I start to think maybe this is it but since I hadn't lost my plug yet I was thinking more a long the lines of 3 or 4 cm dilated since with my first son I lost it around 4 cm dilated. We drop JT off and head to l&d and they get me into a room as soon as we got there. The l&d nurse checks me to see how dilated I was and she is like well you are 9cm dilated and I am in complete shock. The first thing that comes to my head is wait I wanted an epidural so I ask the nurse if it is possible for me to even get one this late and she said it is but the doctor will most likely break my bag of waters which was bulging that I would most likely be ready to push before the anasthesiologist woulg get there and that is exactly what happened. So they tell me I am ready to push and with one big push Micah was born. My labor and delivery is exactly how I wanted my first to go and that delivery is how I wanted this one to go pain free lol. Well I guess I got my natural delivery and I am so thankful to God it only last a whole of 4 hours.
