hi my name is marina and im 18

on dec 2 i had my little girl. she wasnt due until dec26.

on dec 2 i had a doc appt to get the group b strep test and i waited in the waiting room for about 2 hours. when i went in to see the doc she asked if id had any bleeding or contractions like they always do and i said no beccause i hadnt. so she did the test and asked if i had any concerns. i told her that i was only nervous that my fiance would nt be here for the birth. so she decided to check me and she was confused and asked if i was sure that i wasnt having contractions. it turns out i was 8 cm dialated. she sent me to the hospital down the street and i called my dad. once i got to the hospital about 5 mins later thye checked me again and told me i was at 9 cm,. this was at 4:22 pm. they told me i was having contractions every 2-3 mins. at around 7 pm they broke my water and at 7:21 pm on dec 2 my liliana was born. 18.5 inches and 6lbs 6oz. shes absolutely perfect.

i kno this isnt common. my cousin/godsister was down the hall had been there dec1 7ish pm and had her son dec 2 at 10:35 pm

so did anyone elses labor go the way mine did?
