Jaxon Reed's arrival........

Aug 31, 2012 - 2 comments

Wednesday afternoon at 1:30 I had my membranes stripped in the doctors office - didn't hurt at all. Was 3 cm and 50% effaced. Had mild cramping afterwards. Made dinner and decided to go to the gym and take BodyPump at 7pm. Got home at 8:30pm and had mild contractions. Were 7 mins apart but not bad really. Went to bed at 10:30. Up at midnight and 2:30am to go potty. Nothing much was happening or so I thought. While trying to fall asleep I had a good contraction. I decided to keep track of them because I had to close my eyes during it. Had 4 contractions @ 10 mins apart that each lasted 90 seconds. Decided to call doc at about 3:50. He said to come in and get checked out. As soon as I stood up contractions picked up to 3-4 minutes. No turning back now. Hit the road about 4:30 for a good 1/2 hour drive to hospital. The closer we got to the hospital I kept telling my husband he needed to go faster! We ran 3 lights and even passes a cop but he didn't seem to care! Got to the hospital at 5:10, they checked me and I was already 8cm! NO time for any drugs! I wanted try to go without and now I had no choice. Au Natural is how we ended up! I was on the monster for 25 minutes and it was time to push! 3 contractions and 9 pushes and he was here! 5:56AM, 20.5 in, 8#4oz beautiful, happy and quiet baby (so far) :)
