My pregnancy 39 week

Yes, This is is!!!

It was Wednesday morning when I felt menstrual-like-cramp when I was laying on the bed.
I wasn't sure that was a real one or Braxton Hicks contraction.
Because it wasn't painful.

I took my dog for a walk in the morning, and after, we, family-5 of us went watching movie "Avengers" which I liked a lot.
During the movie, the contractions started stronger and more frequent.

During the second walk with my dog, I some times had to stop because the pains were so strong that I couldn't keep walking. Then I started thinking that this might be the real contraction because the strength of the pain.

Around 8, my contractions were so strong and came regularly 3-5 minutes apart.
I waited for a few hours but I just couldn't bear the pain, so I called the hospital and they told me to wait another half an hour to see if the contraction changes.

Since the contraction got more frequent and severe, we left home for Sharp Mary Birch Women and child Hospital.

I only dilated 2 cm.....
I was disappointed because I though I dilated more since I've had contractions for a while and pain was unbearable for me.....
They ordered to walk around for two hours to help dilation.
We walked for an hour, every 3 to 5 steps, I needed to stop and wait the excruciating pain to go away.
We went back to the hospital and told them I couldn't walk anymore then, we were led to a delivery room.

I was suffering with terrible back labor......
My back rather than stomach was killing me every contraction.
I just couldn't take it anymore when I only dilated 4 cm.....I know I was weak....
I was for a natural birth without any medication, but the back pain was more than I could bear..
So I got an epidural and soon, I was in heaven!!!!

I still felt contraction by tiny pressure in my stomach but I was so happy that I finally could rest.
My husband and I slept through almost entire night; I only woke up when nurses came to check my vital and temperature.

In the morning, it had been for about 6 hours since we got to the room, we found out that I only dilated to 5 cm.... just 1 cm progress within 4 hours........

The progress was so slow that I needed to be induced.
After few hours, I finally dilated to 8 cm, it was around 10 am on Wed, May 10.

And I only pushed for about 20 mins.....

Here he is!!!

He is a 6.8lb-boy!!

Here is my after birth tummy...

The uterus is still shrinking to get back to the normal size.

Some times I feel weird to have smaller
