Yes, my friends…Junior is indeed a GIRL!!! I started having contractions and by 3AM I was already 3 cm dilated. I called Hubby and he and his youngest sister rushed over to the hospital. By 5AM, I was 5 cm dilated. My night nurse gave me some morphine to help with the pain. The contractions and backaches were unbearable. My SIL was laughing because apparently I kept saying, “I love morphine”!
I was wheeled over to Labour and Delivery (Again! That’s twice in two days!) and the OB-GYN said that I was going to have this baby TODAY! Today is Remembrance Day (Veteran’s Day in the States) and definitely a day I will always remember!
I was in labour from pretty much 2AM and then by 2PM I was 8 cm dilated. Soon after, I was fully dilated, but my water had not broken yet. The doctor had to break it for me. I did end up getting an epidural. I cannot imagine not getting one. I considered going all natural, but am glad that I decided to get it in the end. I’m the biggest wuss!
