Birth Story

Better late than never

Natalie Rose was born July 18, 2012 @ 11:41pm - 7lbs, 7oz; 18 1/2 inches. (due date was July 19, 2012)

The day of the 18th was a busy day. Did some shopping in the morning and took my son to get his 1 year old pictures taken. I felt fine the whole day (the following day was my due date). After getting my sons pictures done, my DH and I dropped him off at grandmas to go out to dinner. During dinner, I started to feel contractions. They were about 12 mins apart and not painful at all. I thought it was going to be a long night of these contractions and Natalie would probable come tomorrow. I was SO wrong!!! After we got home, around 10pm, the contractions started coming on stronger and faster. I took a shower and knew that it was time to go to the hospital. By the time we got into the car, my contractions were 3-4 mins apart. We got to the hospital at 11pm...I got into the labor room and requested an epi. I was 6cm. All of a sudden contractions were right on top of each other. There was no time for the epi. (there was also no time to check me in; no IV-nothing). Baby Natalie was coming - ready or not! So, w/o paid meds (mind you, Im a big baby with pain), Miss Natalie was born at 11:41pm. Only 41 mins from the time we got to the hospital!!!

This happened so fast! The doctor was in shock! After she was born, I was finally given my IV and officially admitted into the hospital.

Natalie is 3 months old now and she is perfect!!

(Natalie and her big brother are only 11 1/2 months apart)

Sorry it took so long to is my first day back at work and I finally have time to use the computer lol

Sounds like Natalie was determined to be early, wow, what a speedy delivery!

So glad you checked back in and hope adjusting to work and managing 2 little ones is going OK.

Be sure to catch up with all the other mommies over on Baby's First Year Community.
