Ariel’s Birth Story

Ariel’s Birth Story

“Reminiscing today on my fastest labor by far. I vividly remember screaming on the highway not thinking we were going to make it. I went to bed that night 🌙  uncomfortable as usual. I woke up with contractions that were 5 min apart, i went to use the restroom and began to time them. My bags were some what packed and I was 38 weeks and 4 days. I knew it was time to head to the hospital I finally made it upstairs to kiss my kids, “POP”  there goes my water. I remember getting nervous at this point I knew we were running⏳out of time and I had Hailey without a epidural and didn’t want to do that again.

Flying 85 mph down the highway I remember praying to God ( Please don’t let me be that lady to give birth in a car)! Pulling up to labor and delivery I couldn’t even get out of the car I screamed to a pedestrian to help me at this point I was 8 cm dilated and I hadn’t even been admitted yet. Three nurses ran to me with a wheelchair we bypassed triage completely  into the elevator we go up to the 7th floor.  At this point I am scaring everyone in the hospital because I am screaming bloody murder,  some for the pain but mostly  Because I felt like I was losing control and this birth was not going how I had planned.

My memory gets a little fuzzy after this I remember seeing a lot of people moving very quickly fast. Prepping the Room the bed and also myself. I close my eyes and prayed the last thing I remember yelling was dropped the bed!  After that my body did its own thing and he was here. Healthy breathing and crying all I could say was thank you welcome to the world my sweet Owen👶🏽

** I will never forget nurse Dolly 5 min after birth say “well at least now we can get you admitted, what’s your name😳🥴😵** ”
