Around noon I started timing my pressure waves, they weren't strong at all, but since I was 5cm with a bulging bag yesterday at my appointment I thought it would be safe to say I was in labour. They were coming 7-10 mins apart; an hour later they were 4-7 mins apart, so I thought it should be time to go to the hospital.
We got everything in the car and got to the hospital around 3pm. They checked me and I was a good 6 cm so they admitted me and I was in my room a little before 4 pm. My sister (doula) and my mom and dad arrived at 4:30 pm. Still my pressure waves weren't anything to even mention. As soon as everyone got there we decided it was time to break my water, that was done at 4:48 pm. Right when she was done, I got up to go to the bathroom and I could feel a pressure wave coming. It was a little more intense, but still not bad. I decided to get on my birthing ball and as soon as I sat down the first strong pressure wave started to come. I had 2 more like that and felt the need to push.
I told my midwife I needed to push so I got up to get on the bed and another pressure wave started to come, I wasn't even fully on the bed when she checked me, I was 8 cm. I could feel her head come down with the midwife's fingers and as soon as she pulled them out I yelled "SHE IS CROWNING" No one believed me, but my body was taking over I had no control over it. So I said, "No really she is coming!!!". I spread my legs and her head was out, I didn't even push, and the rest of her body followed.
From the time my water broke till the time I had her was only 25 minutes with 5 pressure waves. I had a second degree tare from her coming so fast. My midwife didn't even have both gloves on. No one was ready for how fast she came. I did it all natural with out any drugs or IV; it was amazing.
Here is the video of her birth.
