my child is so obedient. who actually has their baby on the exact due date?
i had a rough night on wednesday, i woke up thursday feeling like it was the day but i didn't want to jinx it so i only mentioned it to mackenzie. i didn't want to be disapointed.
we may have jumped on the trampoline the day before....and walk all over walmart the morning of the 12. definitely worth the discomfort...when we got home we just sat around chatting and i felt so uncomfortable. at that point in pregnancy you hardly feel the need to pee, just strong discomfort so i decided that's what was needed. then it broke! right into the toilet, very good timing i'd say.
i couldn't stop laughing. i screamed out that my water broke and it just wouldn't stop pouring and laughing didn't help it. we gathered everything together, got ahold of matt who met us at the hospital. i will never forget that drive, mom ran both a red light and stop sign. we couldn't stop laughing and i couldn't stop leaking.
we got to the hospital around 3 and after a bit they put me on pitocin. it seemed to fly by to me, i love the magic that the epidural brought into my life but i did NOT like that needle.
i have to brag and say i have the most amazing husband. that man stood right by my side the whole time, comforting my pain, helping me stay calm, looking me straight in the eyes, letting me squeeze all blood from his hands.
i won't go into details, but i will say that this was the most incredible experience i've ever had. i wouldn't trade a single thing for that day. i've never felt more pain, but i'd say i'm pretty lucky. i only contracted for 8 hours, only pushed for about 25 minutes. i've had a pretty good recovery, he's nursing so perfectly, i'm one lucky mama.
i've failed at documenting my belly so much, my exhaustion took over that desire. since tomorrow is the actual due date i decided it was necessary. he's dropped soooo much, i'm not sure how i walk anymore!
my mom is finally here! we are ready and waiting for him to join us. we are jumping on trampolines. we are going on walks. we are doing it all. she is here for 10 days so pllllleasssssseee come out baby boy.
these 40 weeks went so fast, time is just going to fly by with a baby in the house. i will be grateful for the company.
