Happy Birthday!

Today is my son's 7th birthday. We didn't have his birthday party just yet but we are going to have it on the weekend. We got him a few games for his PSP and he just loves them. We had a cake today and gave the baby a piece of it, it was too funny! She ate the entire piece. :)

I remember his birth as though it were yesterday. I was having false labor for days. The night before he was born I went in for an assessment. I wasn't dilated at all but my cervix was thinning. The nurse told me to go home and if things changed to return. I went home and had contractions regularly every 10 minutes for over 3 hrs. I was getting a little sick of them at this point so I asked hubby what we thought we should do. Shortly after that I had a big gush of blood. That was it, off to the hospital we went. Again, I was only dilated to 1cm. But they figured it was a long travel and the storm was starting so we stayed the night. In the morning the nurse told me I should go for a walk, do what I had to and then return around noon. The whole time I was walking I was in unbelievable pain. It was all back labor. I couldn't stand it at all. We went to the mall and I had 5 contractions from one end of it to the next. *this mall is pretty small I must add* I didn't want to return too soon so we stayed in the car for a bit. At 12pm, I had enough we went back up to be assessed. The nurse had told me she called my house to see how I was, because she thought I would be returning. Anyway, not 2 minutes after I sat on the bed, my water broke. I was definately staying. Things started to pick up after that. My Dr. came to the hospital to assess me at around 4pm. I was about 6cm. It was still all in my back. At this point I needed something for the pain. I remember getting fentanyl at this time. Whoooo, that was quite the medication. My only complaint is it didn't last very long. Anyway, my Dr. stayed there with me, because if he had left, he would have one hell of a time to get back. After pushing for about 20 minutes and after having the vacuum used on him, he was born. He was OP and that was the reason for all the pain in my back. He was born on the biggest blizzard of the year. I was 9cm dilated and they were going to transfer me to another hospital for a c-section but I was determined that I would have him where I was. Luckily I stayed and ended up having him only 15 minutes after the paramedics arrived to transfer me. His birthplace would have been on the highway. LOL. He was 8lbs 11 1/2 oz and perfect. He was perfect from day 1 and still is :)
