Let me tell you, “fast” pregnancy- means fast deliver, at least once you get into active labor, for me. We, Hubby and I, spent 39 hours waiting for the inducing medications to get me into labor…after the 36th hour had past with barely a contraction, I was mentally over it. Done. Let’s go home.
We decided to wait and see what happened over night, so one more dose at 10:30pm of the medication they were giving me to induce labor (not Pitocin! happy day!). Before this final dose we were able to go outside and walk around a bit in the birthing garden. Hubby and I saw a shooting star, and I knew right then and there this was going to work, Sneaky baby will be coming tonight. And Happy day i was right!
I finally started having contractions and by 2am I was in full labor, 2:10 my water broke, 2:20 I was at 6cm and asking for an epidural (didn’t think I would ever ask for one, I hate the thought of needles in spines) there was no time for that anyway, 2:30 I was at 10cm and ready. Sneaky B was born 7 minutes later. Beautiful!
I remember saying to Hubby, my mid-wife and the nursers five minutes afterwards “Oh my god do I feel better now” and then looking at Hubby and our little Sneaky B “I am NEVER doing that again”
It’s been two weeks now, we can’t imagine life without our little Sneaky B. Kiddo is a fantastic big sister, of course she has her moments, but she is awesome. It’s been a crazy “short” pregnancy and we would not change a thing, we are thrilled to be a family of four.
