My sweet little girl was born at 6:51am on Sunday morning weighing 6 lbs 14.2 ounces. Her labour was very short. Early Sunday morning I had a nice long shower before going to bed for the night. I laid in bed around 2:45 am and had my first contraction shortly after that. I wasn't exactly sure if it was the real thing or not so I just tried to get some sleep. After feeling a few more contractions I decided I had better start to time them. So at 3:00 I started timing them and was shocked to find out they were coming every 2-3 minutes and lasting 45-75 seconds. So after half an hour of timing the contractions I woke up my DH and I called the hospital. The hospital tried to tell me that because it was my first baby I should still stay at home for a few more hours, but I told them I was coming in. We got to the hospital at around 4:45 and by that time I was already 6cm dialated. At 6:30 am I was ready to push, and she was born at 6:51am. I didn't have any tearing or need stiches either. We came home form the hospital on Tuesday and had her first drs visit today. She's already gained back all her birth wieght.
