Lucky #7 arrived Friday July 14th 2017. I was sent to be monitored for high blood pressure and it kept climbing and didn't want to come down. Got to 210/118 at the highest but hovered the entire time around 180/100.... 39 weeks to the day so they decided baby needed to come. I refused pit. I was already 5 cm and during monitoring the nurse stated I was having some contractions 8 min apart, though I couldn't feel them. So the Dr agreed to break water and reassess in 4 hours... 3.5 hours after breaking it baby was born!! Very nice fast labor and I didn't even feel the contractions until transition. Ended up completely natural but basically pain free. I didn't even feel the uterus tightening at all until I was 9cm and almost ready to deliver, so all in all the labor was good. I mean the last 45 min I did feel them of course and they were pretty strong but my body has this weird thing where I will take 2 minute naps between the contractions during transition so i never even remember that part. My blood pressure plummeted to normal range within 30 minutes of delivery of placenta. But I am floored, much more exhausted than I have ever been after giving birth. The labor was so easy its for certain not that. I think the couple weeks of high blood pressure just exhausted me so much I may need a few more days than normal to feel myself. The baby is doing great! NINE POUNDS and TWNETY ONE INCHES. So here's the plan.... This voting lasts until midnight Wednesday night the 19th. Click the link below and guess --- BOY OR GIRL!
