This birth was different in many ways, and similar in others!
My water broke first (again) at 7:35am on Feb 11th. I didn't even start contracting until 3pm that day (Saturday). Then contractions were a little intense, but they were very far and few in between! It took a long time for me to get into active labor, but once i hit active, it flew! It took one hour and 30 minutes to go from 4-10cm, push the baby out, and deliver the placenta! Elliot Nehemiah was born at 3:03PM on Feb 12th. So my water was actually broken for 31 hours this time (its was 30 hours total, the first time) but labor was WAY shorter! i did have crazy double peaking contractions, but hey! i'll take that for a ~1.5 hour birth! lol
SOOO glad! And i had ZERO back labor! I couldn't believe the difference! I really thought i was in for another long haul birth. Heck,i would have been happy with my labor being split in half, but i spent a lot of time praying about and im soooo thankful it was less than 2 hours!
