I was just wandering if there was any interesting labor stories? I just always love listening to peoples labor stories...maybe b/c I have a pretty good one with my last baby. I was at work on a Sunday December 7, 2008 and wasn't due until the 14th. I was going to be induced that Tuesday because I had a wreck the week before and spent the whole day in the emergency room getting checked out. I went into labor b/c of the trauma but it stopped and they sent me home. They were going to induce me b/c I was just worried about the baby even though they said she was fine. Well anyway...I went to work that Sunday (7th) and walked all up and down my work for 12 hours with no contractions...feeling fine. I got home around 7:00pm and started having very light contractions that were 4 minutes apart...so light I didn't even know if they were contraction cuz I was able to talk on the phone with no trouble they were very light. Well at 10:00pm I had a very strong one so I woke up my husband telling him we needed to go. I thought that they would be 4 minutes apart just like the light ones were....boy was I wrong. They were one right after the other...with only like 7 seconds of releif between each one. Our hospital is 45 minutes away from where we live. I had to tell my husband that if he got to a stop sign or stop light to slow down and see if anything is coming but if nothing was coming he better not stop!!! I had the urge to push when we were still in my driveway and I had to go the whole way there with the urge to push. She was right there and ready to come out...but luckily my water hadn't broke....which I still don't know how it didn't cuz she was right there!!! At one point in time I told my Husband that he had to pull over because I HAD TO PUSH!!! He told me no and that he would get me there. We stepped into the emergency room at 10:25pm (which was very fast from our house) and they took me back to my room...my husband stayed to fill out paper work. When I got to my room I changed into the gown (door wide open...I didn't care) and then my water broke ( that was right after I got to my room. I still say someone had to be watching over me cuz my water didn't break until I stepped into my room. She was right there.). They checked me and said I was going to have a baby very soon...I said how soon? and she said as soon as the doctor gets here...which she was only 2 doors down delivering another baby and she was allready on her way. She walked in the room and I pushed once (my husband wasn't in there yet)....my husband walked in right before I pushed the second time and on that second push she was out!!!! That was at 10:45pm. Yep only 20 minutes in the hospital and only 45 minutes from my first contraction!!! VERY FAST!!!! The doctor was able to stop deliverying the baby a couple rooms down, come deliver my baby and then went back and finish delivering the other baby that was how fast it was. It was very scary...I really thought my husband was going to have to deliver her!!!
