Fast Labor and Delivery

My first child, Dylan Scott, was a difficult 12.5-hour delivery. So, with my second child, I assumed that birthing her would be much of the same. How wrong was I!

I worked from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. that day, but before leaving work I told my co-worker who had recently delivered her fourth child in an ambulance, that I thought I was having contractions and that they had been going on all day. However, the contractions were not very close together, nor were they very strong.

My friend tried to convince me to allow her to drive me to the hospital at that exact moment. But I refused. I wanted to go home and shower before I went into the hospital for another 12-hour delivery.

By 6:45 p.m. I reached labor and delivery and they examined me. The nurse said that I was dilated to 3 1/2 centimeters and that I had the option of being taken into the hospital at that point or I could walk around and be checked again in two hours. I chose to walk around.

So my mother, my mother-in-law and I went to pick my husband up from work. We arrived back at the hospital around 7:45 p.m., and my mothers wanted me to walk the stairs to get my labor moving.

At this point my discomfort level had greatly increased; however, it was not unbearable. And I felt as though I needed to use the restroom; however, all I could do was tinkle a little.

I decided at that point that it was time to return to labor and delivery. Upon arrival at 8 p.m., the nurse said that I was dilated to 7 centimeters. The nurse was walking out of the room, and said that she would be back with the instruments she need to insert the standard IV.

Meanwhile, I was standing next to the bed, and began having a very strong contraction. I called to the nurse attempting to leave the room, and she rushed over to push me back onto the bed. They immediately rushed me down the hall to the delivery room.

My husband had carted off to update the grandmothers and almost missed our daughter being born. My bed barely reached the delivery room when my daughter arrived into this world at 8:13 p.m.

All of the nurses were gasping, and I thought that something was wrong with Brianna Nicole. So I was hitting my husband in the arm, exclaiming, What is wrong with my baby? There was absolutely nothing wrong with Brianna.

The gasping was caused by the scene that the nurses/doctors had just observed. No one in the delivery room had ever seen it happen. Apparently, I had what is called a veiled birth, meaning that my water had never been broken and that my daughter was born in the sac (just like a kitten is born). Apparently, this is very rare, and they say that my daughter will be a very special child. And obviously she is very special to me!

Today, I went to the beach front with my children.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear."
She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!

Very cool story! I just saw a picture on Facebook of a baby still in the sack, so I looked up "Veiled Birth" on Google, and it brought me here. I love birthing stories, and this one was definitely fun to read! I've never heard of a veiled birth before today.

Thank you for any other fantastic article.
Where else could anybody get that kind of information in such a
perfect way of writing? I have a presentation subsequent week, and I'm on the search for such information.

Almost all of the things you mention is astonishingly appropriate and it makes me
ponder the reason why I hadn't looked at this in this light before. This particular article really did switch the light on for me personally as far as this specific issue goes. However at this time there is one point I am not really too cozy with so whilst I attempt to reconcile that with the central idea of your issue, allow me see what all the rest of your subscribers have to say.Well done.
