I had my first child when I was 18. (got pregnant the first time I had sex with his dad) He was due April 29th, 2006; I went into labor Friday April 21st, 2006 at 1am and after 34 hours of labor, on April 22nd 2006 at 10:59am, I had him naturally (with only a little bit of nubane, sp?) I tore but it was totally worth it! Noah Riley is an amazing and smart 4 yr old now.
I got married 3 yrs later to a different man who is absolutely amazing. After waiting to have sex with him I also got pregnant the first time. (crazy right?) She was due January 18th, 2010. I went into labor at 2am on January 17th and had her 49 LONG hours later at 3:11am, January 19 2010.I also did it natural with her with only a little bit of nubane at the end. Turns out I had a second pocket of water that had not broken so my contractions were roughly 6-7 min apart for a good..20 some hours or longer. Once they broke the second pocket and pumped me full of petocin (sp?) I had her. For my son I pushed for 10min, my daughter I pushed for 11min. My husband got to deliver our daughter which was way cool! However the after birth refused to deliver and I had to have more petocin and then pushed for another 30min or so before that was done. Needless to say I WAS WIPED OUT. :p
But both my children are beautiful and totally worth it and we plan to try for another in the fall of 2011 :)
