March 23, 2014 is when my baby arrived.
It was the longest night if my life but now when I think of it I would do it over and over again to meet my little beauty.
My contractions started Saturday the 22nd at about 4 am and were all over the place until about 9PM. That is when i decided to call the hospital and they told me to come in. I got to the hospital with my mom and cousin and they just told me to go back home because they were only 7 minutes apart.
The second i walked into the house they got stronger and stronger and were down to about every 3 minutes. At 3 am i couldn’t take it anymore so my husband and I headed back to the hospital. At that point I was 6cm dilated and was in labor. I can not explain the pain contractions give. It is as if there is a sharp knife in your stomach just being twisted. Finally at 7am they gave me epidural and i have to say…epidural is sent down from heaven. I felt nothing from that point on. Finally around 1:30pm i started pushing and 2:11pm she was out, healthy, weighing 7lbs 16oz, 20inches long.
There is no way to explain the feeling of bringing a child into this world. The love that is in you and you don’t even know until you bring a child into this world.
