Leroy's Birth Story
My contractions didn't get any stronger and they were way far apart. We stayed there for about two hours and they finally let me go home because the contractions had stopped. I went home and went to sleep after a long day. Then my contractions started up again around 4:30 AM. This time they were super-strong—I could barely even walk, they hurt soo much. I kept on falling asleep and waking up. So I called my dad and told him what was going on and he over came and got my first son for me around 8:30 AM, so I could relax.
I said to myself that if the contractions don't stop by lunchtime, I'll call my doctor. Well, they didn't stop and they were still super-strong and between 6 and 10 mins apart. My Dr. sent me off to the hospital again. We were there for about two and a half hours. This time I wasn't going home. My nurse told me that she called my Dr. but he didn't give her a response whether to send me home or keep me there. About 45 mins later, my Dr. walked into my room and told me that he was getting ready to do a C-section on another lady and that I was next after her. I was shocked! My boyfriend and I didn't know what to think, but we quickly responded "OK" with big smiles on our faces.
We waited for about an hour or so, and they took me in to do a C-section. It was Valentine's Day and at 8:43 PM, a 6-lb, 11-oz 19-inch healthy baby boy named Leroy Vincent Williams Jr. was born!
