Birth announcement

Fabrice Noel was born 20.12.2012 at 3.32 am, 21 inch (53cm), 7lb78oz (3.530g)

I had my weekly appointment at the doctor on December 17th (his due date) and nothing changed, same results like the week before. i asked my doc if i get a transition to the hospital so i can think whether i want to induce labor or not. i know that is not really the right way to handle it but i just couldn't stay in a hospital over christmas.

i checked in at the hospital on december 18th and got a contraction cocktail. it was castor oil and brought nothing. i did not even had the normal symptoms like diarrhea or puking. Even the small contractions i had since days got less. i spent the whole day in the hospital just having ctg and nothing to do. thanks to my lovely husband he stayed with me the whole time.
at night when he left i cried my eyes out because i had to stay in the hospital right at the night where my beloved grandpa passed away 10 years ago!
the next day i got a quarter of a pill that should induce labor. again nothing happened. same day routine like the day before. in the evening i met a doctor and she said (the staff was great there btw) and she said that they are so busy with babies right now they need to give the meds in dosages that not every baby will come at the same time. (when i was tracking my ctg the first day all the ladies there wanted to induce labor. it was like it was normal) there.
so i had to spend another night at the hospital with nothing happening and knowing that the dosage was too low to do a thing. i went to bed and started reading...at 9.25pm i felt that something was different...my water broke!!! alone! baby decided to come. so i went to the toilet to check if it wasn't urine but it wouldn't stop so i must have been my water. i went to the nursery office and said they should call my hubby (who just left a bit over an hour - hospital is half an hour away from home) but the nurse said that it's still enough time and i first should check the contractions at the delivery rooms. i said okay i will do. i laid on that bed there and the worst contractions started. i messaged hubby to come here again.
hubby arrived a bit after 11pm. i had really hard contractions but wasn't allowed yet to go to a delivery room (probably all occupied), so we waited near the delivery rooms and i tried to live with the contractions. but at 1.30am i wasn't able to face the pain any longer and rang on the bell for the delivery section to let me in. they saw me and saw it was the right time!
from there anything for me is in trance. i got some painkiller infusion, something that made me sleepy as my contractions where so close to another. hubby was there to but just watched from distance. i remember sleeping between contractions and that was awesome. it was painful but i didn't get my epidural as asked because the midwife said i can do it all nature (she by then must have known it would take to long to get the anesthetic docs here to set me an epidural and sure that takes a time to work!)
finally at 3.32 am my wonderful son was born. it was hard but worth it. never thougt that there is a pain that is as hard as you feel you die but then when it's over it is forgotten! well i had to be cut because the heartbeat of the little one was bad and he was too big to get him out! so they had to help me. now i only have this weird pain from the cut. i even felt it more painful to get the stitches down there.
so the birth only was a bit more than 5hours /delivery room time was 3.30h.
i was allowed to leave the hospital on saturday 22th.

i still don't have pictures uploaded because i simply don't have time for it. not because of the little one because he is such an awesome baby but because of family being here for christmas!

Since I know that most of us are waiting for a baby

I found an interesting article about the last few weeks of pregnancy.  http://www.mothering.com/community/a/the-last-days-of-pregnancy-a-place-of-in-between


Personally, I'm physically ready to give birth, as I know it will relieve the physical discomfort that I have.  Emotionally, though, this little guy can stay where he is until it is time to induce.  I'm not worried/scared about labor but more that I won't have the love, attention, and patience to give to another child (this is #3).  I know the love will come, but the other stuff I'm not so sure of.

Thankful

Heya December Mama's, what are you thankful for today?

I am thankful for my healthy rambunctious 2 year old, my husband (even if he is already napping on the couch at 10:30 :P), and I will be especially thankful if little goober baby would stay put until at least tomorrow. I have been having braxton hicks for a week now, and when I went to the grocery this AM (for a newspaper and sudafed) it felt like he was headbutting my cervix with every step I took, and now I keep having stronger BH's to the point that if I try to stand up and walk around during one it is uncomfortable enough to slow down my movements. Oh yeah, and I'm hosting thanksgiving dinner today :P Stay put little man!

Sitting here crying like mad

I mentioned that my fear of birth increased. And as i was typing down my update it started again. I sit in the living room and cry my lungs out. It's at least still 28 days that whenever I am alone (almost always alone) I think about birth, pain, complications and such. Well anything turned into an insomnia as I am alone at night too (hubby upstairs in bed, me downstairs couch because of pain). I will be psychic death after those at least 28 days (let it come earlier not later please) - I have zero distractions right now as I am alone all the time. Yuk what have I done. Why did I became prego. Shit. Sorry girls I am such a chicken.
