The Birth of Valerie Lynn
Thurs 3/6 @ 9:15PM notice first pressure waves 10 mins apart, got to
bed around 11:30PM
Friday 3/7 @ 7:20AM, can’t sleep through it anymore.
At 8:49AM I called the midwife to give heads up.
At 11:38AM I called again with no change.
By 1:13PM we decided this was it.
Donna arrived by 5PM, first vaginal check was 5-6cm.
Around 7:45PM second vaginal check was 8-9.75cm
Waters broke on the toilet before 8PM.
Baby born at 8:12PM.
Thinking back after being asked if I was in pain at anytime, I can honestly say, “No I wasn’t in pain!” This was the most intense activity I have ever done and even though there might have been a TON of pressure in my hips and mild discomfort as my baby crowned, none of it *hurt* and none of it was un-manageable. I can honestly say my daughter’s birth was pain-free!
