Hey everyone. I just thought I would write and tell you about my experiences this last week. Last Tuesday I went for my first internal. The doctor said I had no early signs of labor. However!!! The next day I got up from the computer and felt like I was going to pass a blood clot or something, and so I started walkign to the bathroom and woosh! My water broke jsut like that. My husband and I went to teh hospital, completely unconvinced that I could be in labor. My due date was April 20. And this happened on March 29th! When we got there it was a sure thing. I didn't have any contractions until about 2:30am. They had to put me on pitosin because I stayed at 3 cm for too long. At 5 am the contractions started getting pretty intense, but I opted not to take any drugs. At around 11 am I started pushing (which is probably one of the hardest things I have ever experienced!) but the baby's head ended up being face up, something they hadn't known when I began pushing. So they had to use a vacuum at the end to get her down. At 12:37pm my beautiful baby girl was born and I feel like a different person. She is perfect and we are smitten with her! Her name is Cate Rowan and she was 6 lbs 1 oz. We have been home with her now for 3 days and things are going very well.

Congratulations! I'm already feeling empathetic with all the "smitten" ladies on here who've had their babies. I can't wait!
