I know its a little late but I wanted to share my story. It started Friday September 21, as a terrible ache in my lower back. never thought it was labor. So, I suffered through the day. I could not sleep at all that night.
Finally, I decided to go to the hospital. I get dropped off there. I realize I have nobody here to help me. I get into my birthing suite and the doctor checks me out, I am at four cms but the baby is not in the right position.
So I am forced to sit in this whirlpool like tub for twenty minutes. As I am sitting in my tub, my aunt shows up. She says "Your mom doesnt know if she can make it." Then another aunt shows up, (I am still in the tub at this point) and says she go get my mom. Shortly after all this the break my water and give me an epidural. Then around five pm I am fully dilated and ready go In the meantime , the baby doesn't want to come out. Every time I had to push we had to stop because the baby was getting stressed. Finally, at a little before nine, my mom finally shows up, and as soon as she grabbed my hand, my little baby girl took her first breath. Turned out she was so stressed because her cord was wrapped around her arm. After all that at nine pm right on the nose on September 22 Alonnah Marie joined me weighing 7lbs and .08 ounces
