Baby Story

So, yes I had my baby. Adeline May Wigg was born Aug. 27 at 9:31pm. That day I went shopping becuase we had just gotten possession of our new house in Kitchener. My dad took the kids to McDonalds because this was something I really needed to get done. I was overdue and was moving into a new house so anything that I could get done before baby was best. I brought thr groceries in, my dad came back with the kids and while I was standing in the doorway, my water broke. My water had never broken before labour before so I was alittle nervous. I guess because Kayla came so quickly after my water broke I was afraid I would launch into labour or something. ANyways, I calmed down and called Preston and told him to start driving home. He works in Mississauga and has an hour drive. Luckly, my dad was here so he drove me to the hospital. Of course, since we were at the new house, I did not have a change of clothes or even a towel so I just got to walk in soaking wet while he parked the car and brought the kids in. My mom met us at the hospital too with my hospital bag and he and my dad switched the kids so she could take them home. They checked me and I was only 3 or 4 cm and my contractions were about 8 min apart and not strong at all. So, I was not in labour. They got me a room though and when Preston got there we just kinda hung out for a few hours. Labour still hadn't started at 6pm (4 hours after my water broke) and we started talking about inducing, which I really hated the idea of so we said lets wait an hour. Luckily, in an hour, labour started. I laboured for about 1.5 hours, spent part of it in the shower this time, and when I got to 7 or 8 cm she was still very posterior(way up there) so I thought this could suck, or require a lot of pushing. Luckly, it didn't and 15 minutes later she squirmed her way down and I was ready to push. The first push, I felt her crown. Yes, I actually felt the 'ring of fire' this time. The second push her head was out. Third push and she was here. The said I'm a good pusher. REally, I don't know how you can't be when you don't have any drugs and you have al that pain. You just want to get rid of it. It probably helps that she has a nice small head and was 7lbs 2 oz. I got 3 stitches and she was awake ALL NIGHT LONG. Now, she is 2 weeks old and stubborn as heck when it i time to go to bed at night. I'll have to put pics up later:)
