It's amazing how the labor pains were spread five minutes apart like that. Lucky her. I swear with my last one the pains were two seconds apart. I don't really discuss the birth of my oldes one much but let's just say by the time my drunken ex husband decided to take me to the hospital, the baby's head was pretty much out.

I was an odd Mom for a first-timer: I had NO labor pains at all--not even Braxton-Hicks twitches, then my water broke ten ways to Sunday (As I like to put it, "zero to sopping in two seconds!") as I lay in bed half-asleep. I came into the hospital on my own two feet, laid down on the LDR bed I was assigned to, and THEN the first pain hit! Then my labor pains didn't progress--but when they put me on Pitocin they just went into that five-minutes-apart thing, until the last 20 minutes. And then Zane practically squirted out like a melon seed. You could have clocked him on radar and given him a speeding ticket, I swear! I don't think I even needed the epidural I got, as quikly as everything went.

Elapsed time from soggy bed surprise to motherhood? A little over 9 hours, with 20 minutes of hard pushing. Must have been these wide hips... ;-)
