Hello, I want to share my birth experience hoping that it is going to suport others like me.
I started to feel some light cramping by friday( my due date) and I tought that I may help things along if I will walk as much as I can so I went to the mall and walked for 5 hours wich gave me some real contractions but not too close( 15 min 10 min. apart). Saturday I didn't give up and went for a walk around the block and I walked outside where was harder for about 1 hour wich gave me stronger contractions and more regular but still very beareable. I tought that I just got myself tired and was kind of depressed but by 5:30 pm I was having regular and strong contractions,I had to start concentrating on my breathing and around 5:30 am I was waking up dh to take me to hospital. We got in triage by 7:30 am and they said that I was a strechy 3 cm and got admited by 11 am when I was 4cm. At 11 I was kind of dissapointed being just 4 cm and got mentally prepared for a long labor( first labor 29 hours). I went for a walk with my dh and best friend(support person) and had a tea and they had lunch, when we got back up stairs we took the stairs and I was having strong contractions, long and painfull and when I got upstairs I asked my nurse Louise if I can have a shower as my water was not broken yet and she took us in our birthing room where I actually took a warm bath and the contractions felt way longer but the water was helping a lot. I asked my dh to call the nurse to check me after 1 1/2 hours of being in the water and she said I was a 7-8cm and they started to warm the baby's bed and called the dr. I went back in the bath as the contractions where unbearable and my water was still intact. until my dr. came I had 3 more contractions( I was feeling like I wanted to smash my had in the walls to knock myself out
) They helped me on the bed and the dr. broke my water at 9cm and I was 10 cm instantly and started pushing( no epidural ,no laughing gas, no meds at all). My dh was holding one leg and my friend the other leg and I was pushing as much as I could and in 20 minutes out came a head full of black hair and screamed as I was pushing her body out. Naomi was born Sunday at 2:17 pm weight 6lb 15oz, 20 inches long and she is the best baby
. My dh adores her and her brother is so good with her I am the most happyest mom ever. Next baby story when next one will arrive
. Thanx for reading our stary and God bless all the moms and expenctant moms
