Joshuas Birth Story

Went in for a doctors appointment on Christmas eve 2009 I'd been having painful contractions for a couple days but they were so irregular, I didn't think I was in labor but when I got to the doctors I noticed my contractions were 5min apart, they miraculously started coming faster and harder the doctor checked me and I was 6 cm dialated, they wheeled me over to labor and delivery and checked me again when I got there I was 8 1/2 by that point which was only 20min later, they administered a emergency epideral because of a genetic heart condition that I have, I gave birth about 2 hours later the epideral slowed the birth down which was coming really quick, he was born at 3:11pm after two contractions and no pushing the doctors had to use forceps, he was 8 lbs 5oz and 19inches long a healthy chubby baby. It was the best Christmas ever had pretty much got him a day before Christmas and now I have my Christmas eve baby, he's such a blessing.

Well this was my story I'm back I left the forum last year because I was sad about a miscarriage, I just didn't wanna talk about parenting. I recently started dating a new guys a few months ago and we were being extremely careful and using protection but here I am pregnant again and my son Joshua is now three, I had to create a new profile couldn't remember the password and don't use my email anymore that I had before. So hopefully you guys will welcome me back
