I woke up at 1 am with pressure waves I couldn't sleep through. I found if I put on a CD I could "sleep" as long as the CDs were playing. So I rested the rest of the night listening to CDs.
At 8 I got the big boys off to school and friends. Then I relaxed for a few hours. Finally around 10:30 I was ready to go to the hospital. When we got there I was 5 cm.
My doula, DH and I walked the halls and hung out in the room. I was chatting and happy, it was so much fun. Around 4 pm, I got more introverted and stayed relaxed between pressure waves. At 5 pm, I was still 5cm with a bulging bag of water, so I asked my OB to break my water.
I chanted my peace cue and my doula and DH did the relax cue. I was feeling intense pressure, but no pain. I started to push around 6:45 and Bryson was born at 6:59.
