okay well on sunday 8-15-10 i posted that me and my BF had sex and i thought my water broke.. and you ladies said to walk around and see if it keeps doing it.. well i figured i'd get up and take the laundry down stairs cause it needed to be done well i went into the bedroom and was like omg i have to pee ran to the bathroom before i pee'd water came out.. then i pee'd and after wiping good and what not i stood up and water kept pouring out of me! i was freaking out i was like "DeeJay i cant stop peeing myself!" lol well i called my mom put a pad on and got ahold of the doctor and he said to eat and relax do whatever i had to do then come in. well my mom had to drop my neice off at someones house so they could watch her well i stepped out in front of the van to let my niece out and my water came out so much it went everywhere! and there was so many people outside they were looking at me like "why is she peeing herself!" lol! well i got to the hospital about 8pm and got checked in and after a few minutes they came in and had to change my bed pad how bad i was leaking and the nurse said to the other one "oh i just cleaned up lake michigan over here." ... and my bf couldnt stop laughing.. they came in and did my IV and got me in my room.. started me on potocin well i started having some contractions but they werent staying (i couldnt feel these at all but they were strong) well then the doctor wanting them to put internal monitors in my :( i hated it and as soon as they put them in i started feeling them contractions.. waiting but then i couldnt stand them anymore so they came in to give me the epi (i was so scared) but compared to them contractions it didnt even hurt!! well after about 4 hours (i didnt get any sleep) i started having a horrible cramp in my upper and lower left butt side.. and omg it was every contractions i thought i was dying! well they gave me a totally of 6 bowls into my epi and nothing helped i was crying and in so much pain.. oh and from 5 cm to 10cm my body was pushing on its own.. well finally after having 3 things in me and that i was a ten :) i started pushing well practice pushing and she put her hand there and told me to push so hard to push her hand out and she said his headwas right there.. well after about 8 pushes his head was there! and my doctor wasnt in the room but the one nurse? grabbed his head and said okay one more strong push then pop there he was.. she set him on my stomach but i was in shock.

he was born 8-16-10 139pm 6 pounds 14 ounces 20 and a half inches long!
he wasnt the 8 pound baby people kept saying he was, i had to stay till wednesday because i bled to much at first.
and right now were at home and im typing w one hand holding him while he sleeps w the other :) he has a very mild cry and doesnt really cry at all.
oh and also were waiting to see if hes going to get any darker (BF is mixed)
