Due date: July 24
Actual birthdate: July 21
I had on and off prodomial labour and thought nothing off it. While at walmart on July 19 I had an accident and thought my water broke. It didn't. So July 21 at 4am I thought I had another accident but called L&D again as this time it felt like Caden hit my cervix when it happened. They said come in to double check. As I was getting ready and hub got ready I started to get cramps then contractions. So decided it was probably it. So by the time my dd and we were ready it was about 6am. We got in and got checked in and as I was going up with the nurse and then waiting to be officially checked the contractions started coming on harder and faster. When they checked I was 6cm. I was able to walk to the labour room and then I got some more contractions and then as the nurses were asking questions I got a strong one where it felt like I had to push. They checked me and I was at 8cm. They tried to get me at least the gas for pain as i couldnt get anything else but it was coming on too fast. I was fully dilated at 7:30am and I delivered baby without meds and Caden was born at 7:33am. He wasn't moving at first so the doc cut the umbilical cord to get him on my chest right away and then he was ok. Due to not having many contractions though he was mucusy but almost perfect in everything else. I did get 2nd degree tearing due to how quick it was.
My 2.5yr old was there the entire time (they let kids in Labour rooms as long as someone can watch them) and she did great. Wasnt scared of anything and I was quite loud.
