First I must say "I DID IT!!!" I had baby Holden without an Epidural!!!
Well last night (Thursday) around 10:30 I began noticing contractions so I was timing them at 2 mins apart. They were VERY unintense so I wasn't too worried...I figured they would go away. By 12:30 I decided to call the doctor to see what his thoughts were...contrax still 2 mins apart and felt like mild period cramps. Doc told me to just go in to L&D as it's better to be safe than sorry.
SO I arrive and am still doing pretty good...a little more painful but not horrible. By the time they check me I'm at 5cm. This was about 2:30. My contrax continue to get more and more painful/intense and I cave in, asking for pain meds to take the edge off (I'm pretty sure they didn't do a darn thing). The next half hour seemed to last an eternity but very soon I was 8cm and my OB was called to come deliver baby....he didn't make it.
The next thing I know I can literally feel my baby coming out ( I was laying on my side and was trying to keep my legs together). I tell the nurse "He's coming now" and she keeps telling me not to push but I can feel him coming...so we were yelling at eachother about keeping him in. The next thing I know I feel my water break and my baby come out. I gave a little push and started crying because I knew he had been born on to the bed with no doctor and I was really worried about him.
BUT baby is doing great, his APGARs were 8 and 9, we've been feeding well, and hopefully we'll be home tomorrow early evening.
OK now the pictures
OMG Congrats and great job Momma!!
