Birth Story Time! #1
My water broke at 8:20 am and my contractions started instantly. They were 2 minutes apart and a minute long.
After about 10 minutes of contractions, I called my midwife at the Birthing Center, and she told me to get there asap.
I was planning on a water birth, so they had the tub ready for me. And let me just say, the water helped so much! After 3 hours, I had my midwife check my progress, but I was only at 7cm. So they had me try to pee. I sat there for 4 contractions, and the last one was so big, I finished dilating, and I felt the baby coming.
My midwife checked me again, and asked how I wanted to proceed, so I used a birthing stool. 2 pushes and her head was out. I looked over at my husband, and he had tears streaming down his face, and a giant snot bubble. 1 more push, and I was handed my beautiful baby girl. She was 6lbs 8.5oz and 21in long!
