I beat the induction!

After doing some research and talking to some people, I was pretty sure I was going to go in Wednesday morning and have the midwife break my water. I went to sleep Tuesday night a little crampy but nothing more significant than the days before that. I woke up with painful contractions at 1:30, got to the hospital at 3, and after a very intense but quick labor, Aidan James was born at 5:09 Wednesday morning. He weighs 7 lb, 1 oz. and is 19 1/2 inches long. He's nursing well and so far is a content little guy. I will post pictures when I get a minute.

    Congrats! I'm so jealous of your turbo-birthing uterus! I love the name Aidan too, it'll probably be our next boy's name. :)

    Congratz!
  • cosmicflycosmicfly Posts: 1,814Registered Users
    bumping because I added pictures- I can't seem to get the thread title to change, though.
  • cosmicflycosmicfly Posts: 1,814Registered Users
    yay! congratulations and beautiful name. Can't wait to see the pics. I've heard those quick labors can definitely be super intense.

    Yeah, I actually ended up taking a shot of Nubain and I still thought I was going to die. Both of my turbo labors were super intense, but with Maya, I could feel the contractions throughout my body and with this guy they were localized and that really made them more difficult for me to manage. I also wasn't getting any relief in between for the last hour- makes it kind of tough to regroup.

    Ever since the sports thread wars I have sensed a special connection between [edit] & Wile. Like the connection oil has to water. I almost can't speak of it. Wait....my eyes are misting. ~asq
