So I was in my 34th week of pregnancy, June 7th2010. I went to clinic for regular check ups. Sat there waiting almost all afternoon on the doctor who was out doing a delivery. Finally at 5 pm I was able to see her, and for the first time since being pregnant doctor was to perform a physical examination. Lo and behold, to my surprise, dr told me "grab your bags and head to the hospital young lady". I was totally shocked, is this how easy it is to have a baby?? I was feeling no pain whatsoever.
Anyways I waked home (5 mins away) and told hubby who was preparing to work shift 6 pm to 6 am. He was even more surprised because we were expecting baby on June 18 and after. He still had to head off to work until he find another doctor to replace him and come back home to be with me, an he did so about 10 pm. Now slowly I was getting contractions bearable now and then, was nothing to worry about. Meanwhile mom was preparing to travel up by 3 am, I wanted her to be with me.
By 11pm contractions were unbearable and getting closer to each other, hubby wanted me to relax because he said baby won't come so soon, I'm in labour and if I go hospital I'll still have to wait until its the time, so might as well wait at home. I disregard the fact that he's a doctor himself and could care less what he said, I wanted to go to the hospital. We finally went at 12am man I was in total pain, something g I've never experienced in my life!
