Birth Stories: Christmas Joy
I went on about my week and it was Christmas Day and I was with my parents in the morning my mom kept telling me I was going to have my boy on Christmas and I kept telling her no.
We went to my husband's side of the family at his cousin's house and we were there all night from about 4 till 11pm. I started feeling what i thought were braxton hicks contractions. Everyone kept asking me all night are you all right, I kept telling them yeah I'm fine. Then around 10pm I started getting really uncomfortable and I started walking around. Me and my husband went home about 11:30pm he went to sleep and said just in case you go into labor tonight I'm going to sleep right now. I told him to shut up and go to sleep I wasn't going into labor.
It was 1:20am and I was jolted awake and looked down at the bed there was a small wet spot I smacked my husband and said I think I just peed myself. I knew it was pee though I knew my water broke, I got up went to the bathroom made it in the bathroom doorway and my water broke all over the floor. I started screaming at my husband that my water broke but he couldn't hear me because he went back to sleep. I finally got up and went back into the bedroom screamed at the top of my lungs, "You stupid bastard I was screaming at you because my water broke!!" He jumped up like I shot him, we stayed at the house for about an hour and then we left for the hospital. We got checked in and upstairs by about 2:30am and they checked me again said I was fully effaced and at 2cm I asked for the IV pain meds they gave it to me. About an hour and a half later I got another shot of the IV pain meds they checked me again, and the nurse said let me go get the doctor your ready.
I only pushed for about a half hour and then my little son was born 3 weeks early at 5:43 in the morning only 4 hours after my water broke. And my poor husband sat up with me all night and morning. He only slept about 4 hours that day.
