CyberShower Party Post for Junior

My labor/delivery story:
July 11, 2005 I woke with contractions at about 3 a.m. This was my first so I was unsure of what I was feeling, but I called the nurse to be sure. She had me time my contractions and told me to go back to bed and get some rest. Naturally, my husband woke when I was talking to the nurse and wanted to go to the hospital immediately, but I reasured him that it wasn't time. At 3 p.m. my husband decided I needed to go to the hospital, but after the nurse hooked me up my contractions were still to far apart to worry. The doctor checked me and they sent me home. Prior to my departure they said that if I experienced any bleeding to come back immediately. I made it to the elevator and I felt a huge gush of something so I rushed to the bathroom and instead of my water breaking I was gushing blood. So back I went and they checked me again. My contractions became very close together and my water broke. Not long afterwards I was asking for an epidural and another 14.5 hours later I had a beautiful baby girl.

The Most Fabulous Nest:
Coming soon: pictures of my baby's gorgeous sanctuary.

The Best, Worst, or Funniest Advice for Expectant Mothers:
The best advice I can offer ANY expectant mother is NEVER LET YOUR BABY SLEEP WITH YOU!!!! Always carry a change of clothes for those unexpected blow outs. If you do not understand what I mean by blow out then your day is coming! lol Several times I have had to buy clothes for my daughter to wear home or leave with her naked.

Everyone is invite to attend the CyberShower at Mamanista to celebrate Juior's arrival.
