No pain medication. 27-hour labor. Doula and midwife assisted labor in a birthing center.

Buckle up everyone, here's my birthing story! It's a big one, so we've divided it into three parts.

Labor began at 9:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept 10 and lasted through the night and into the morning. I was unable to sleep, but managing fairly well. We called our doula over around noon and soon it was time to drive to the alternative birthing center at a nearby hospital. When the midwife checked me out I was 5cm dilated. Yeah for the rookie mom! We were worried I'd be at a 1 or 2.

I continued to labor in the birthing center - mainly in the shower and down on all fours with the birthing ball - till 4 p.m. When my midwife rechecked me I was at a 7! Life was good. I had hope! I labored for 2 more hours... very intense, very painful and thank God for Mike who literally held my back together with every contraction to help offset the pressure. I was rechecked at 6 p.m. and was making progress.

We labored for another half hour and then filled the birthing tub... Pregnant? Check out my baby registry checklist:
