Because I am
excellent at keeping up with my blog, I should should let you know that I had my baby! Last year. In June. :-x I gave birth to a healthy baby boy (we’ll call him KD) after 30 hours of labor (that makes him 8 months old now).
I had my dog, Obiwan, assist me through most of my labor. He literally never left my side, unless he had to pee. Dogs do know!
I had my husband too but I didn’t really need him until the end… when you know, I was in the most excruciating pain ever.
Everything went smooth, mostly. They had to break my water because it had already been almost 24 hours and it hadn’t broken yet and I was ready for things to speed up a little bit as I hadn’t slept.
That was the hardest part of labor for me. Lack of sleep. Since I went in to labor in the morning and was still in labor early the next morning, I obviously couldn’t sleep overnight because that’s when my contractions were getting super strong and 3-4 minutes apart. Sleep was not happening! But I survived. Woo! Although I was in a daze for the next few months because I couldn’t get more than 2-3 hours a sleep at a time after that. All worth it though! All. Worth. It!
