The last 24 hours have been pretty amazing.
Yesterday I received a text from from sister that they were heading to the hospital at 6:41am and that her water broke. An hour later I received another text letting us know that she they arrived at 7:50 and after 2 pushes and 10 minutes the baby was born!
MARLA RAE was 7 lbs 8oz, 20 inches long, she has small feet with Brown/blondish hair. Due to how fast the delivery was baby Marla received a lot of bruises to her sweet little face! She is doing well and they are all ready on their way home!
After a very exciting morning, my phone rang at 4:00pm. When I saw the name on the phone I knew what conversation was about to happen! A dear friend of mine also had her water break (a few weeks early) and they were on the way to the hospital.
I went up to the hospital around 7pm to see how she was feeling. Still at 3 cm, contractions were mild but increasing in frequency. I sat there with her until 11ish. They gave her some drug that would get her in labor mode and a sleeping pill.
This morning lots of texting back and forth. Now at 7cm and they gave her an epidermal.
It had been an hour from our last contact, so I decided that during my lunch hour I would swing by the Hospital and see how she was doing. I got to her room and a nurse was walking out. Not know what was going on I was about to bust through the door. And then I heard it! A scream like I have never heard before followed by everyone encouraging her to keep going! “YOU CAN DO IT”
I instantly froze. After one last yelp the baby cries began. I stood there not knowing what to do except cry! I couldn’t stop crying! Standing there by myself in the hallway crying. So I called my mom. I could not believe how emotional I was. I have two nieces and one nephew but have not had the opportunity to be at the hospital when they were born.
I stood there for half an hour. Not until the last-minute did I think of going to the waiting room where all the family would be! Nope, I just stood there crying, all by myself on the phone with my mom!
