Well, my intentions to write every little detail about David have totally failed. I wanted to keep everyone up to date but having a newborn in the house along with a 3.5 year old has been a bit challenging. Millions of Moms have done it and I will do it too but right now I’m pretty tired and having trouble finding time to do anything computer related.
The birth: if I don’t mention the story now…..nobody will care anymore so here it is (the short short version):
My water broke at 3:05pm
Ben woke up at 3:06pm and said what is the matter Mommy?
Craig came home at 3:10pm
Ben greeted him at the door saying Mommy’s water broke. He was like WHAT?
We called the Dr. who said make your way into the hospital (1 hour away). I was feeling nothing at that time (3:15pm)
After I hung up – instantly my contractions started and they were 4min apart. I was feeling lots now. I managed to get into the car by 4:00pm
Arrived at Mom’s to drop off Ben and stuff at 4:30pm (contractions 2 minutes apart- agony). Did a driveby.
Got on the highway and felt a need to push – HOLY SHIT! How can I have this baby in the car!
Somehow, someway, Craig got us to the hospital even though I said numerous times to pull over. (thank God he didn’t)
Emergency room guy raced me into the hospital into some triage room because I was wailing, The baby is coming out!
I was on the table not 10 minutes…pushed three times and there popped out David.
Mind you, I am sparing you all the gory details. Those close to me have gotten the phone call with those.
Ultimately, I had my natural birth, it lasted two hours. David was born at 5:10pm. I was happy as a clam and still am!
Happy and TIRED that is ; )
