    Hey everyone! :D
    Thanks for all the well wishes!
    We are now home! In the hospital for less than 36 hrs. My wife is AMAZING! Here's the whole story if anyone is interested.

    I don't know if I mentioned it earlier, but we decided to go with a group of mid-wives here at St Luke's Hospital which is part of Texas Children's Hospital in the Houston Medical Center. They are midwives but they work for the hospital so if anything was to go wrong a doctor is on call, so it feels much safer than going to a birthing center. We also hired a Doula. For those that don't know (i didn't before all this) it's like hiring your best friend who's got tons of birth experience, to hang with you and coach you through the whole thing.
    So anyway, Thursday at around 4pm, Mom started to get light headed. So she left work early and headed home. I got home and she said she is now having contractions, but they are kinda sporadic. 6 mins, 8 mins, 5 mins, 11 mins, etc. We try to go to sleep later but she was up a lot and by morning when I woke up they were still going, but pretty much the same. Some were coming quicker, but still no real pattern. Well at this point I'm getting nervous but i had something to do at work friday morning that had to get done and no one else could do. So I ran to work, did my thing, let everyone know what was going on, and was home before lunch. Still no change and at this point we talked to one of the midwives who said it's just positioning contractions. Sofia was trying to get into the right position. Eventually we got in contact with the Doula and she said pretty much the same thing but she would come over that evening. By now, it's been about 24hrs of contractions. She was definitely in labor and starting to wonder if the whole natural birth thing was a good idea. Doula comes over and tried some massage, got her in a bath, shower, anything to relax her. Oh and Mom was shaking this whole time, too. Couldn't seem to stop. The Doula checked dilation and she was only like 1 or 2 cm, so nothing was going to happen soon. By 8pm she hi-tailed it home to hit the bed and get some rest incase we called during the night but she figured it would be sometime the next day. So i go to bed at midnight and Mom attempts to do the same. Well at 2:45am i wake up and she's standing at the foot of the bed. I'm like wtf? (and this is where it gets a little graphic) She says she is spotting. So i'm like :shock: but i'm so freaking tired and I put my head down and she gets into bed. :lol: A couple minutes later I manage to haul my ass out of the bed, wander into the other room to grab her cell phone and call the Doula. Tell her what's going on and she says she'll be right over. So now i walk back into the bedroom where Mom is laying on the bed. I'm walking by and she says... "OMG! Something's coming out! I'm like WHAT DO YOU MEAN IT'S COMING OUT!?!? I look, expecting to see a head, and it's her whole bag of water! I effing kid you not. It was a gray sphere coming out of my wife's va-jay-jay and then just burst on the bed. :shock: Called the Doula back. Told her what i just told you. She said, "i'll meet you at the hospital" <click>.

    Ok, so now cut to us in the car. It's 3am. I'm flying. We get off the freeway and I'm running red lights. Mom is TRYING not to push. I'm like noooooooo, not in MY CAR! :lol: We get to the hospital, i toss the key at the valet and we head upstairs to the birthing floor. We get up there and ALL the birthing rooms are full. So they push us into the the c-section recovery room about 4am and then shit started to get serious. No paper work, no nothing, just a whole buncha pushing. And an hour 45 later, Sofia popped out, 5:47am. And here's the crazy part. No drugs, no tearing, and no stitches. Holy effing crap. I couldn't believe it.

    So other than losing a lot of blood from being in pre-labor for so long, my wife effing ROCKED that delivery and by this morning she was running around the hospital room cleaning up the room, taking a shower, hanging with the baby and asking when the hell we were getting out. By Sunday at 5pm we were home. :D


    And for reading all that... here's a pic of Wally and his new obsession. :D
    And now I'm going to bed!

    Geez Dennis! I can't believe your wife! Holy crap! What a frickin trooper. My mom had me natural, no drugs, etc. I came out nearly a month late! :lol: After that, with my sister and brother she was like, "NO WAY" hahahaha. Both of them were c-sections.

    Congrats, I'm sure you are glad to have Sofia and your wife home! Let that lady get some sleep!! :D

    Okay, so I was in bed, and for some reason that line came to me, and it was so good that I had to get out of bed, turn on my laptop, and log on to post it. :D

    HAHAHA, Sarah.
    Wow, Dennis, that was an amazing delivery and your wife is a real trooper! She gets major kudos for that whole ordeal. And yes get as much sleep as you can when you can I hear babies don't like parents getting much sleep. :) But seriously, congratulations and Wally looks like he has already accepted Sofia into the family.

    Going natural definitely yields a quicker recovery :D I"ve had 3 labors, the first 2 were w/ epidurals, and the 3rd was natural (that was beyond my control...the little booger came out to fast....in fact, he literally FLEW out, and they almost dropped him LOL!) -- after the 3rd was born, I was ready to get up and party! LOL With the first two, it took a while before I could get up because my legs were still numb from the drugs. Big difference!

    Go momma!
