2 weeks and 2 days early :smileyhappy:


Washed the carpets thursday night.. was bending over working hard to extract the water..  Went to the bathroom after and saw that I lost a little bit of mucous plug.. a few seconds later a trickle of pinkish colored water.  this was 6:15

I sent a text to DH and said come home now.  8 oclock I went to the bathroom again, and my wter brooke- I was leakign a ton.  went to the hospital.  got there and was at 4 cm.

contractions were not bad at all..   at 11:30 p they started getting worse, I was at 7.. I got the worst epidural EVERY-  jerk didn't have a clue what he was doing I swear.   However once it was in-  I was good to go-  that was about 12:30....  at 2:10 I started pushing,. and after 6 contractions and maybe 30 pushes out came Jackson at 8 lbs 4 ounces 22 inches long! 


It was AMAZING I watched the whole thing in a mirror and it barely hurt.  I'm in love with the little guy and I would not change a thing about the experience!

Congratulations and welcome baby Jackson!  Love the name.  Sorry your epi went it rough, but at least it worked and everybody is healthy and happy.

Congratulations!!! That's wonderful that everything went so well. And only Theresa would be washing carpets 2 w before her due date - I wish I could've been so active throughout. I'll bet it's all that exercise you made time for!
