Speedy Delivery

Baby number two has made her arrival. And it was FAST.

One minute the doctor was in the room saying that I was barely dilated to a 5 and it would probably be 4-6 more hours and the next minute (actually, just under 20 minutes later) I was crying/screaming as my mother in law was putting on rubber gloves to deliver the baby herself because it didn't look like the doctor *or* nurse was going to make it in time. Meanwhile I was totally panicking because A) WHY wasn't my epidural working? and B) WAS MY MOTHER IN LAW REALLY GOING TO DELIVER MY BABY? ***SERIOUSLY?!***

But she's cuter than I expected her to be. Is that horrible? To expect your baby to be ugly? I also expected her to be a pain in the &%^, but she's not so bad so far. Knock on every freaking piece of wood this side of the Atlantic. She's sleeping right next to me as I type, making those cute little newborn sighs. I may hate babies, but I confess, I don't hate her that much at all. :-)

Oh, and by the way, my mother in law didn't have to deliver the baby. The doctor rushed in just in time. Thank goodness.

I had a doctor do the same thing:
Me: It's coming right now.
Dr: I'll be right back--just have to get dressed.
5 min's later I say to nurse:
Me: It's coming RIGHT NOW.
Nurse, with back to me: I know, I know.

Baby comes sliding out just as nurse turns around--and barely catches it. Doctor comes in ten minutes later. "Oh, I missed it?"

Hubby didn't make it to that one. Stepmother held my hand.

I'm assuming that your labors and/or deliveries go fast? That's a GOOD thing. What number is this for you?

Ah. That would explain the sudden increase in traffic. And I guess I better stop swearing in my posts. :-)
