Odette's Birth story!

I will start at the very beginning, the entire experience was so perfect!

Tuesday I was scheduled to work until 8 that night but we had gotten fairly busy and I didn't end up getting off until a little after ten. By that time it was snowing pretty hard and I remembered thinking "at least I have 2 more weeks, I'd hate to have a new baby in this much snow" Then I got home and my daughter, my husband and I had some late night cocoa and built a snowman-we get snow maybe once if we are lucky so we had to take advantage of it. Then I told my husband I was quite exhausted so I went to bed. At about 6:30 I woke up and thought I had peed the bed, my whole side was soaked. I woke up my husband and told him I thought my water broke but I was really clueless since my daughter I never actually went into labor. I called my mom and told her I thought that's what happened and she told us to drop her off so we could get checked at the hospital. We got to the hospital at about 7:30 (and had to drive in the snow) and I really thought they were going to tell me I just peed my pants. They hooked us up to all the machines and it turns out I was having regular contractions. They called my doctor and he wasn't working that day so they had another doctor from that clinic heading over to do the c-section. I remember it all going so fast. I'm not sure exactly what happened next but they decided they were going to do the c-section sooner rather than later so they had the doc that worked at that hospital come meet me and it turned out he was the doctor who delivered my last daughter! They took me to the o.r. and had me prepped and she was born at 10:17 and we were back in our room by 11. Recovery has been fairly easy, I'm still sore, but I am so happy it makes everything seem alot easier. She is the best baby to, she gets up every 3-4 hours to feed and goes right back to sleep, she only cries when she is cold in the middle of a diaper change:D

I'm glad everything worked out well for you and you have your sweet baby! I think it's funny and ironic that we both thought we would be the last ones to have our baby's and they decided to come the same day and early. Smile
