It started with me taking castor oil at 4pm on Wednesday the 5th. Lance had clinic camp Thursday Friday and I was nervous she would come when he was away. That's why I took the oil. Well 8pm the castor oil hit! I was living in the bathroom and was having cramps by 10:30-11 we went to bed and I had Lance give me a blessing I felt like an idiot for taking the oil cause I was miserable and the cramps/ contractions were painful. We went to bed and I woke up at about 1:30am with the runs again and the. Cramps/contractions I wasn't sure if they were poop pains or contractions. But then I wasn't having the runs but still having cramps/contractions and thy kept getting worse so by 3:30am I woke up lance told him what was going on every 3-5minutes the contraction pain was coming. So we called our friend who was going to come watch K but she didn't answer and I knew we couldn't wait so we called our back up and all was good she got there 15 minutes later and then we were off to the hospital I was having contractions along the way and they were very very painful!!! We got to L/D but the door was locked we had to go through the emergency room in the freezing weather may I add!! It's freezing here!! After getting a wheel chair Lance wheeled me into L/D we get checked in and they can't find me in their system (pre reg) I get to my room they want me to leave a urine sample yeah that didn't happen ...then they checked me 6-7 dilated!!!! I was going to die the contractions were so painful I told my mom and lance I would need an epi because The contractions were so close and so painful and then another contraction came and I had to get off the bed laying down wasn't working so I kneeled at the floor of the bed and breathed and a nurse came In so I have all these consent forms they need me to fill out I was feeling like pushing and everyone started telling me no Brittany breath I was shining my name and forms at 4:34 and still needing to push a nurse told me if I kept pushing I would make my cervix swell and then I would need a c-section!!! I was scared because my body was telling me to push so I said a prayer and I pushed hard on my next contraction and felt her descend and I thought she was crowning the nurse finally checked and oh there's the head and told me I heeded to get off the floor and on the bed so I wouldn't have baby on the floor! Lol I was on my hands and knees on the bed and she said I could push if I felt like it so I did and 2 pushes her head was out and then she said I needed to turn over and push baby out so I did and one push later baby was out at 4:48am we got to L/D at 4:20 mind you. My midwife missed it !lol by 4 minutes! Lol the nurse delivered emily!! It happened so fast I couldn't believe she was already here!!! Lance and I both were in sock about it!! Thank you regular chiropractic care!!!:) short delivery and labor!!! It was amazing I have a small tear but not that bad and it's on the inside so my recovery this time has already been night and day difference I feel great and am so excited to go home tomorrow!!!

Mother Nature wanted it to be beautiful for her arrival I guess :) we are so in live with her and so grateful my mom came early and changed her flight cause originally she was suppose to get here today at 11:30am!!
