I just love hearing birthing stories because they are all so different. I will start with mine.
I went into labor on November 27th 2008 (black Friday) I got up at 3 that morning to go shopping with my FMIL I was in labor for almost 50 hours start to finish. I went in to the midwifery the first night but they sent me home because i was hardly dilated we went and walked around the mall for a few hours the next morning. Walked more at my house till i went to the midwifery again that afternoon. They made me waddle up and down the stairs to get it moving, boy was i tired! I got to the point that i could no longer walk so i got in to the birthing tub and sat in there through the night but when i came time to push i had to get out because it was awkward sliding around in the tub LOL surprisingly enough i managed to be joking around till about the very end. I don’t know how long i pushed but i started cracking up when they got her past the shoulders, told me the rest was easy then she got stuck at her belly! I had my daughter at 12:59pm she weighed 8lbs 15oz and was 22inches long. the wonderful ladies at the midwifery mad me and my fiancé (who didn’t leave my side for a second through the whole thing) breakfast (my favorite meal ever) and served it to us in bed. It was the most amazing experience, you know other than it was a lot longer than i hoped for)
