The night of his birth was the night I did not sleep. We had put the oldest to bed a couple of hours earlier and we decided about 10pm to go to sleep. I had just laid down and my water broke. I jumped up and the hubby said "Did your water break?" I told him I needed to check to be sure. So we called his parents and then dropped the oldest with them. We did not call anyone else we just planned on waiting until the morning to let everyone else know.
We arrived at the hospital and my nurse was a little disappointed because she figured she would be off her shift by the time the baby delivered. Well I assured her that she would get to see my baby before she left. I reminded her of that as she wheeled me to my room after he was born.
I have been blessed with two easy deliveries with my boys and my body for some reason does not feel contractions until it is time to push. I had to wait for the doctor to arrive with both boys.
Today I am thankful for my youngest son and for the wonderful process of childbirth that I had.
