Lynn (Clarkton) is in labor! *UPDATE Post #6* *PICTURE Post #18*

Lynn sent me this text about 40 minutes ago:
I'm at the hospital in labor. Doc just checked me...was a 4 and stretchy to 5 cm. 100% effaced and I let doc break my water to hopefully bring her head down and get these contractions going better. They were stronger earlier and have seemed to taper off a bit.

Good luck Lynn and (((ELV's)))!!

Thanks ladies! and Thank You Ashley for updating for me! Smile

We are doing great and so far she has been a good little nurser. It went pretty quickly once I got to the hospital. Here's a brief summary until I get around to typing up the whole story:

I got a wonderful nurse who totally worked around my desire to go natural and helped me stay up and moving. She ended up catching b/c baby came so fast no doctors made it in the room before delivery. We were at the hospital about 2 hrs before she was born. Dr K. broke my water at 4 cm and she was born an hour later. Smile I was so very relieved it went quickly. I just wasn't mentally as on board with going natural this time and laboring at home this morning I kept thinking how nice it must be to just get an epidural. Wink Of course, I knew that wasn't what I really wanted so I didn't go there and thank goodness it went fast once it got intense! Gotta love the sweet relief of delivery no matter how you get there! Smile

I'm glad you got the birth you wanted! I'm hoping for the same--so fast I don't have time to cave to an epidural. I'm already 4, so I think I have a shot! So happy for you!

You rocked your birth lady! Smile
Just dealt some unlucky cards with a really long labour. I know I wouldn't have handled that well.
