Marrissa Rosemary's Birth Story
It was August 1rst. I got up and had a normal day. I had to change my panties through mid day because they were wet with...water. It didnt click in my head. I wasnt Due till August 17th. I didnt tell my husband because I didnt think about it.
I did my normal thing and took my dog to the dog park for about 2 hours. Shes a Border Collie so shes an ABSOLUTE NUT if she doesnt get her excercise in daily. After I got home DH wanted to go to the fruit market because I wanted some Mangos. After walking all around the dog park for two hours and then all around the fruit market I was really starting to cramp. DH noticed and started timimg the pains. Well they were 5 minutes apart and he said...."Hunny youre in Labor" So I then told him about the fluid Id leaked. Well he thought it was best to go to the ER. When we got there it was inconclusive if it was my water or not and after checking my cervix the DR said I wasnt Dialated. Mind you hes an Army DR who informed me he just got home from Iraq and hasnt done this in awhile so he may not know what hes doing. I just laughed it off. Well he said I was ok to go home and left the room so I could get dressed. As soon as I pulled my pants up my water broke! I remember DH looking at me, his eyes were so wide and he just quietly said " It looks like youre staying here" And then he goes to find the DR. Well the Dr comes back in and grabs this peice of paper and runs it up my leg and then looks at it...."yep thats your water" Another DR comes in to check my cervix and she tells me Im dialated to a 2. So it looks like im having this baby. From the time my water broke at 10:30 pm Marrissa Rosemary was born at 6:17 am. It didnt take long at all. I was placed on pitosin though and I timed my epidural so I only felt 2 minutes of contractions. It was the most amazing thing ever!!!
