Talia's Birth Story

Mild cramps started on Saturday and continued through Sunday, could not sleep at all Sunday night pains were 10 minutes apart and lasting between 40 and 60 seconds. Was waiting for pains to get closer before heading to the hospital. Cramps got intense, got to the hospital at 7 Monday morning, got checked by midwife at 9:00 Monday morning and I was only 1cm dilated, mucus plug was already out and had to wait, was told to walk around. Around 15:00 got checked again and I was 2cm dilated. More waiting with pains intensifying, started screaming around 19:00 as pains were too unbearable was even lying on the room floor tiles as I just wanted that cold feel. At 19:30 I couldn't handle it, I started pushing but thought I was still far, my body was involuntarily pushing and being my 1st time I had no idea I thought this was just part of the process and I still had hours to go, at 20:30 I got checked and the babies head was already coming out, got into delivery room and after 2 pushes her head was out, I thought that was it and I felt her body come out like slime then a gush of water, then her cry, I started crying as the moment was just too surreal! She was beautiful and mine. I would do that all over again, pain and all.
