38 weeks and she's here!!!

Here's one of the last belly pictures at 38 weeks...

But now, I'd like to introduce Juliana Marie! Born December 23rd at 7:41am weighing 7lbs 3oz & measuring 19 & 1/2 inches! My water broke at my doctor's office while waiting for my midwife to see me at around 6:00pm on the 22nd. I labored at home until around 4am when I decided to go to the hospital. My contractions we coming 2-3 minutes apart lasting about 60-70 seconds while in the car and it turned out I was 9cm upon arrival! My Hypnobabies program that I used worked so well for me that I can honestly say I don't remember any distinct time that I felt pain.

It all started when I was at work trying to get ahead on some of my work to prepare for my maternity leave. I started to have what I thought were just Braxton Hicks contractions around 4pm. I left work at 4:15pm to head home to pickup Adam to go to our 5:00pm appointment with my midwife. At the time I was 38 weeks 4 days and I really wasn't ant…

A real pain in the butt!

I'm pretty sure little Jules here has flipped around and is sitting head down now. She's also been putting pressure on my sciatic nerve for a couple days and yesterday it was terrible. I had my last shift at Drifter's yesterday and it was terribly busy so I spent 9 hours straight on my feet running around. Around 4 in the afternoon I didn't know if I was going to be able to make it because the pain my my lower back/butt/hip was just aching none stop. If I went from a leaning over position to a straight up and down position I'd get a shooting pain that made me gasp for air. After staying off my feet all night, doing some stretching and getting a good nights rest I do feel better but I get a twinge right in my butt every now and then. At least I know she's probably just getting in position for the big day! It's giving me a kind of wobble to my step so I look like I waddle a little now. I feel like I'm far too small to be waddling around already! …
