Well, my hopes were fulfilled!!! I went to the hospital at 4:30am on Thursday the 29th with contractions that were 5 minutes apart. They checked me at around 6:30 and I was still at 2 cm dilation. At 7:10 or so I started having really bad contractions and it was hard to breathe, so I asked if I could have some pain medication (Which is what I was planning on doing from the beginning). She said that the contractions would just get worse, etc, basically no pain meds... By 7:30 I the doctor was called and rushed in and I started pushing...I didn't have time for pain meds... And by 7:50am my little angel joined this world. :-) Alexis Marie was 5lbs 11oz and 191/4 inches long. She is br___t feeding VERY well and I love her so much. Hope all are doing well, I'm going to go try and get some sleep now before she wakes up again. Good Luck to all that are still waiting. The wait is VERY worth it!!! Take care all.

wow great job. I want to go this time around with out pain please do painful was it ACTUALLY when the baby was coming down the birth ca___l, crowned and you pushed her out?

cattac, actually the pain of the contractions was much worse than the pain of the pushing, crowning etc. But it did sting when she was crowning. But the pushing stage is the quickest of the entire labor so it's not that bad.

Well, Alexis is 4 days old now and my milk came in last night. So she's sleeping a lot better and I'm more enthusiastic about b___st feeding because it's a relief when she feeds because it gets rid of some of the milk and makes my b___sts less sore. Well, gonna go sleep a little while she's sleeping so I'll talk to you all later.
