At 6:00am, I phoned my labor coach, and she drove my husband and I to the hospital. By the time I was in the birthing room, my labour was 3 minutes apart, and I was 6 cm dilated. About 4 hours later, I was fully dilated, but I had trouble giving birth, so later on that evening, I was some epidural to ease the pain.
At 9:20pm, my son Kyle was born. He had trouble breathing at first, so they put a oxygen mask on him, but he was a healthy 8 pound baby.
A day before my daughter Sarah was born, I went to swimming. The following evening, I felt Braxton Hicks in my stomach. It felt like a painless labor, but I 4 in the morning, I started to feel pain. I phoned my labour coach at 6:00 in the morning, and she came, but my labor pains weren’t getting any closer together. My labor pains were further apart, so I thought that it wasn’t necessary for me to go to the hospital during that time.
After my labour coach left, I went back to bed, and fell asleep for a couple of hours. I don’t recall my water breaking yet. I bled a bit, and I phoned up my doctor. I knew it was close to my due date. I was able to go downtown, and take care of a few things. I did some shopping at the grocery store. At 12:00am, my labor pains came back, and my water broke a bit. I went back to sleep, and I got up sat in the living room with my husband. I sat on the sofa, and breathed along with my labour pains. I took prenatal classes twice, so I knew what to do.
At 1:00am, I phoned my labour coach, and said that it was really time. She came and took my husband and I to the hospital. I was 3 cm dilated when I came to the hospital. I took a shower for 40 minutes, and then I felt giddy, so I had to get out, and go back to bed. I was given some epidural, and it eased the pain.
At 11:20am, my daughter, Sarah Elizabeth was born. I took her, and I kissed for the first time.
