Here's my short version labor story lol
2:30 am Saturday May 2nd my water broke in bed.I was having contractions that were somewhat painful but nothing regular. Tried to sleep some more, finally got up around 8 am. We hung out with our oldest for a bit before my mom and step dad came to get him, not long after they left hubby and I made a trip to the grocery store, trying to get labor to pick up and because I wanted some popsicles and some other things lol.
Not long after leaving the grocery store our midwife's apprentice showed up and checked me, I think she said I was between 3-4 at that point. Contractions had finally become more regular, I think they varied from 5-7 or 8 minutes apart, they were painful but nothing that bad really. It didn't hurt terribly until transition, haha that SUCKED but I survived, yay!
Near the end my body started pushing for me, it was strange, I felt like it was trying to make me throw up but it wasn't lol, just trying to get the bubs out! I started pushing at 10:38pm I believe they said, and he was out at 10:40! No tears AT ALL. Sweet! She said it looked like I hadn't even just had a baby
Edward was 9lbs 2oz, 21 and1/2 in long
My husband was an amazing coach during labor, I don't know how I would have done it without him. He is such a great husband and father. I'm so proud of him!
I know I left some details out so if you have any questions just ask!
Congrats Meg!! I can't wait to see pics!!
