Well, I finally get to tell my story. I was due on May 17th....was supposed to get induced on the 22nd at 5:30 in the morning. However, Ellie wanted out a few hours sooner. My water broke at 1am Monday the 22nd. I live over an hour away from the hospital so needless to say it was a long ride in for me! I had been having little cramps and pressure all day on Sunday but nothing that hurt so I didn't go in. Guess I should have. After my water broke....I started having the little contractions about every 4 minutes. But they definitely weren't painful at all. Got to the hospital at 2am.....a little after.....and I was already dilated to 7cm. My doctor came in right away...and the moved me to labor/delivery room. Not long after I started pushing....had the really bad urge to do #2.....but apparently thats just the pushing contraction part of it. Oh joy! But anyway....4:58a.m.....Ellie Lyndell came into the world. She is absolutely perfect! She weighed 8lbs 2oz and was 20 inches long. And for those people who have had the estimated weight of their baby from their ultrasound...thats not always right. The week before she was born...they had her estimated weight at 8lbs 9oz so they figured she'd be in the 9lb range when she came. But shes just the perfect size. My little pumpkin. We could not be more proud! Best of luck to everyone else. Oh...and on an end note....when I got to the hospital I was too far along for any pain the whole thing was natural. And let me tell you....I'd do it again in a heartbeat. It was not bad at all.....of course this is my first pregnancy so I don't know any different. But from this was wonderful. So don't be afraid. Easy baby dust labor to all!!
