My Birth Story.

I asked my momma to write out my birth story this year for my birthday. With my Grannie dying from Alzheimer's, I just wanted to know how I came into this world. I plan on having her write out my siblings stories at some point too. (My Grannie was my dad's momma, but the point is you just never know.) Anyway, I thought y'all might like to hear it too.

Note: This story takes place before women really started to debate whether they should have birth in a hospital or at home. She actually asked what a birth story was. Just goes to show a sign of the times I suppose.  


*************************************

   It was 27 years ago that a little girl came into my life. It all started on Sunday afternoon, I was having little tingles in my stomach, and just thinking there was the baby kicking in my stomach. But little did I know that I was having contractions. As the day went on I was noticing that the tingles were getting sharper. I said nothing to no one because felt that I didn’t want to get anyone excited just in case it was a false alarm. As the night went on the tingles grew stronger and stronger.
            Then at six o’clock Monday morning the pain was so strong that I awoke her daddy, letting him know I was ready to go to the hospital. After awaking him, he called the doctor to let him know that we were on our way to the hospital. Upon our arrival at the hospital, checking in, nurses taking me to my room, and all questions coming at me from different directions. I told the nurses the pains were 3-5 minutes apart. Then, the nurses took my vitals and then the doctor came into see if I had started dilating yet. After the doctor had checked, he told the nurse he would be back in an hour to check me again.
      It had seemed like hours upon hours before the doctor had arrived. The contractions were getting stronger and closer each minute. When the doctor did arrive he told the nurse, “that they were going to break my water to hurry things along.” After they had broke my water the contractions were at least 1-2 minutes apart.
          Being a new mother for the first time I was scared and asking her daddy to take me home so the pains would go away and he just laughed and “told me everything would be alright.” The doctor came in and told me it was time to go to the delivery room. As I was going to the delivery room I saw my mom and his mom in the hallway and they both told me it was going to be okay and that they would see my soon. Not too long after a few pushes and the doctor telling me he was going to use the forceps to help the baby out of the birth canal. I sat up and pushed one more “dang” time and a beautiful baby girl came into my life those we now know as Samantha Kay.
          She weighed in at 7’2 and 19’’ long. She had beautiful blue eyes and very little blonde hair. After the nurses had finished cleaning her up and then wrapping her in a blanket, they laid her in my arms for the first time for me to see her. Tears of joy rolled down my cheeks for I had began my first step of motherhood. Then they wheeled us back to our room and all the family came and “awed” over her for the first time.
       Three days later…we took our daughter home to start our adventure as new parents. We will always be very proud of her and all of her accomplishments in life.

Love yours truly, Momma

Love you too Momma. 

Now in a tribute to my daddy, excuse me while I rock out to a familiar song.



You can rock out too if you want!

Happy Saturday and Happy Birthday to ME!
