Well, giving birth is nothing like I would have expected.
I had a very stressful day.
We had a big rain storm during the day, and the roof in the pantry decided it wanted to start leaking.
By the time me and my boyfriend found this out, a lot of out food (pasta, rice, etc.) was damaged.
I was an emotional wreak.
My boyfriend kicked me out of the house so he could clean it up.
I went to my parents and cried at my moms, while thinking “man these braxton hicks contractions are getting bad”
By the time I went back home, three hours later, by boyfriend made me call labor and delivery and they told me to come in.
When I was in the process of packing my bag, my water broke. Looks like the baby is coming!
We went to the hospital at 11:00 p.m and i started the paper work and got all hooked up to I’vs.
The pain was getting so intense, I felt like my pelvic bone was breaking.
I got some pain medication and tired to sleep, when we realized that the baby was passing his first poop already.
I finally was dilated to a five, and I got the epidural.
Then his heart rate was dropping with every contraction, so they had to do an emergence c-section.
At this point I was having labor shakes, and I had to be held down during the c-section.
It felt so weird. I was being pulled and tugged, and I had my boyfriend tell me everything that was happening.
When I heard his first cry at 10:20 a.m I started crying. My boyfriend told me that the baby had hair, and he was the most perfect thing he had ever seen.
I fell in love with my new family instantly.
My baby is now 2 weeks old, and let me tell you it has not been easy.
We are all trying to get into the swing of things, but one thing is for sure- we love each other to the moon and back!
