Welcome Elijah Gray!

I had a fabulous first pregnancy and delivery (unmedicated hospital delivery, including backlabor) and hoped for the same for my second instead of risking the "unknown" of a different labor. But am I glad it was different! I labored at home with contractions 6-8 min apart, but started getting the urge to poop- so decided to head in. My water broke on the first, so I knew I had to go, this time I was still doubting how far I was, but that urge also made me a bit nervous. I walked up to L&D, told them I thought I was in labor. Started having some contractions on top of each other as they were checking me in, and when they did a vaginal exam, I could tell by the nurses eyes that I was going to be delivering soon! They rushed me to a room and I soon as I got in bed I had the urge to push. One push, my bag literally popped and sprayed at least 2 nurses (whoops, sorry!). 30 minutes after walking in the hospital's front doors, I delivered my healthy 8.12 ounce boy without the doctor present. I felt great and enjoyed the time with my precious boy!

I've saying the same thing: "I want my second birth to be like my first." Thanks for sharing that it doesn't have to be and it will still be wonderful. Congrats!
