1 hour labor! No kidding!

What an eventful evening. My water broke at 3:30 am with no prior painful contractions (2 weeks before due date). I took a shower, called my father to come watch our toddler, & hubby was about to take his shower. Contractions started kicking in so I wouldn't let hubby take a shower! Contractions on the drive to the hospital were very INTENSE! But we stopped to get gas. When we arrived at the hospital I gave birth 4 minutes later exactly one hour after my water broke 4:30 am. Yes, baby boy arrived 4 minutes upon arrival! The doctor didn't have time to put on his gloves. What a story we'll have to share with our son about his dramatic arrival. If I would have known I was that close to delivery I wouldn't have taken the shower.

Congrats mama

What a quick delivery!

Dd came an hour after my water broke too. But I was already in the hospital.

Re: 1 hour labor! No kidding!

If this would have been me, I would have delivered in the car. The hospital I am delivering at is an hour and fifteen minutes away. I would rather deliver at home than the side of the road. Here is to hoping if I go quickly, I can do so in the comfort of my own home. Congratulations on your new arrival.
