Birth plan threw out the window

Birth plan threw out the window blog
On Thursday evening 10/4 my contractions started. They weren't unbearable but midwife wanted me to be checked since I tested positive for Strep B. I was 3cm dilated and 80% effaced. Contractions were varying between 3-6 mins apart. After 2.5hrs with no change I decided I would like to go home.

My contractions started to increase around 1am. I called hubby around 3:30am and asked him should I call midwife or just wait until he got off at 7:30 am. I called told midwife I lost plug and intensity of contractions. They told me come in. Hubby came and packed kids up and we went to birth center.

I was put in water birth suite but told I was still only 3cm at 5am. Midwife started my antibiotic and said we will continue to check progress. My mom told me she would come when I was 6cm. I labored on ball and by walking around.

At about 6:55 am I told hubby to call midwife in because I felt urge to push. I texted my mom, "please come." When midwife and nurse entered I told nurse to start filling tub up, suddenly my water broke as I was preparing to sit on bed. Midwife checked me and said sorry Destini you are not makin, g it to the tub your next contraction you will need to push..

Everything happened so quick, six minutes later my son Justin DeSean entered this world 7:15 am on 10/5 weighing 6lbs even 18 1/4 inches long. None of my other support people made the delivery, it was just my husband and I. Kids were in waiting area entertaining themselves.

Didn't happen the way I planned with music playing, candles lit, and surrounded by the grandparents, but I wouldn't have it any other way. My son is here in perfect health and that is all I can ask for.
