    Love it! I am feeling like such a bum, I STILL haven't written Bekah's birth story - and that was one of the things I was looking forward to!

    I tell you what, your labor sounds A LOT like mine was, up until your water broke. Mine was one of the "regular" ones, I guess - my water didn't break until I was pushing! I suspected that made a big difference in pain. You are SUCH a strong mama! Great job! And how awesome that your DH was so encouraging at the end! Sometimes you just need it!

    I know jennifer, I did not know it was gonna take that long..It was surreal..I think i kept saying how hungry i was and thirsty , and even though everything was good and done at midnight my lovely nurses got me a sandwich & cookies !! hope you get a good nurse staff like I did. I'm a freaking proud mom for sure, can't wait to read Parker's birthstory

    Kelly, I never expected my water to break..I'd always hear of how rare that was but the pain was crazy soon after i couldn't believe it.You should defenatly post bekahs story it's my favorite part of these boards..: ) . My DH rocked if it wasn't for him i would def would have had a c-sec

    I was going to write it on her birthday (Tuesday) but our computer was dead! Figures! Haven't had a good chance since.

    So awesome about your DH! It must be really encouraging for him to know how much he helped you, too. I know they tend to feel helpless, sometimes. :)

    Just checking back in real quick to ask about the posting problem.

    If your first post with your whole birth story was long (more than 3500 characters) you would not have been able to post. You'll know you're over the limit if the orange "Submit" button is there, but it's greyed out.

    If that was the case, you can either shorten the post or split it into two posts. (one would be a reply to your 1st).

    Is that what happened, or were you experiencing other technical issues? I'm forwarding any feedback to the powers-that-be. :)

    Hey Andi,
    the first time it was my dumb laptop 's fault it would just refresh and sll got erased ..bummer!! but the other 3 times i would go up to the limit then the post button would be gray , I would try erasing abit more and it still wouldn't work : ( ! so I decided to post it on my blog instead
