Wednesday 7/28 I started having contractions around noon. I would have a big one and then a few small ones every two hours or so and so I thought nothing about it, but I was uncomfortable. My mom and I got to leave the hospital for a little while to take a break (Destinee is still in the hospital from her chemo treatment...we had a friend come sit with her while we left). My mom was begging me to go to the doctor because she knew something was happening. I refused...I wasn't ready...everything was planned, I was having the baby Friday and I just refused to believe otherwise. We got back to the hospital and I was having more frequent short contractions but very inconsistent. I took a shower to relieve some of the pain and it helped for a minute but the relief didn't last long. My mom got into my cellphone and called my doctor while I was in the shower and the doc told her that I should come in if it didn't stop or came more consistent. I still didn't want to go but my mom had already called my aunt to come pick me up from Destinee's hospital to take me to my delivering hospital.
10:00pm we arrived at L&D. They put me on the monitors and I was contracting every 3 minutes and I was 5 cm dialated almost completely effaced. They said well you will be having the first baby of July 29th. I was shocked and completely didn't expect it. They admitted me and got me in a room. They checked me when I got settled and I was 7 cm. They called my doc to update her. She was in another town 20-30 miles away so they told her to be on her way. About an hour later the baby's heart rate kept dropping, they said something was happening, they checked me and I was 10 cm the baby was right there. They called the doc and she was still not there yet. They had me roll from side to side to keep the heart rate up until the doc got there. Well I rolled to one side then rolled to the next....we heard what sounded like a cats meow...we all looked at each other like where did that come from then realized....the baby had came out on her own and was laying between my legs under the cover. We lifted the cover and there was my princess sucking on her hands. Not even crying until they picked her up. We were shocked, amazed, beside ourselves, we could nnot believe what had just happened....And I didn't feel it at all.
Nonetheless my little girl is here...on her own time...she was 5lbs 15oz 19.25 in long. Beautiful and perfect in everyway.
We came home yesterday morning but I had to go see Destinee first because I knew how much she was wanting to see her sissy. She was so in love and I was so overjoyed to see them together. Its killing me to have to stay home and away from my Destinee but I know I have to heal. I want us all together. I will be going back to the hospital on Monday with the baby to stay with Destinee for the remainder of her stay there, hopefully only until next weekend.
Im off to post pics...check them out!
