In labor for Less than 24 hours
Drive to birth center when contractions were 7 min apart. Walked the trails a while.
Lots of contractions and pushing but the water sac was in the way. After midwife poked the water sac, labor progressed smoothly and baby boy was born. Greeted by dad, big sister, and great grandparents.
In labor for nearly 24 hours. Water broke, drive to hospital, got antibiotics and went out to dinner.
Returned to hospital. Contractions and active labor as usual. No interventions- had to refuse epidural a few times as my nurse was very pushy.
Phx born at 1 am happy and healthy.
