I was 15 when I got pregnant and 16 when my son was born. My boyfriend (soon to be husband) was unable to be present at the delivery because of my family. My son was due Nov. 2,1998, on Nov. 5,98 I felt pressure at 3 am and I just thought I had to pee. Again at 6;30 a.m. I felt a stronger pressure and knew today was the big day! My contractions started at 7:00 a.m. and quickly became 5 mins. apart, I told my mom I was pretty sure today was it and we called the doctor and a few other family members to let them know. The doctor's office said to go ahead and drive to the hospital. My mother and I got ready to go and at around 10:oo am we left the house and arrived at the hospital around 10:30 a.m. I was sent to a triage room to be examed and the nurse said "your about 4 cm , you can stay!" I was so happy that I didn't have to go back home. I passed my mucus plug and went to a LDR and I had the best nurse of all time. I told her that I wanted to go completly natural and she was so surprised that someone of my age wasn't scared and that I wanted to go without medication. A few hours later my water was broken and my dear son was born at 2:34 p.m. at 8lbs.11 oz. and 21 inches long. I quickly forgot the pain and was so glad that I had not had any medication because I was completly alert and could spend an hour with my baby before he was brought to the nursery. I wish all mothers could have the easy, uncomplicated birth I did. Too those of you who didn't god bless you and the courage you have all had to go throught cesareans and days of labor. Currently dh and I are ttc baby #2. I hope my next birth is as easy!
