THE DAY... what a day!

My husband got in the night before, and by the morning I started having contraction. Being this my third time around I knew we were fine in terms of time. So I got everyone showered and dressed up, and order everyone to the living room for a long overdue family photoshoot. I also hadn’t had chance to do a shoot of my big belly, so obviously it was now or never! Between my regular but spaced out contractions we did the shoot and had a regular breakfast at home. I knew it has still early to go to the birth center, but that day I had a prenatal appointment at 11am. So we decided to make it there on time for the appointment anyway. When we got there we were told that I was only 4 cms and they usually don’t take in patients until they are about 6? I can’t remember! Anyways they advised us to go back home and come back around 4 or 5pm! We looked at each other and I don’t know why we decided to go along with this idea. So we went back home, by this time it was lunch time so David took the boys out to get some lunch. My mother and I stayed home, had some lunch, I laid down a little bit... and before we knew it my contractions were coming every 3 minutes! We called David to hurry back home with the car and the kids. When I got in the car my contractions were coming every 2 minutes! David was driving, my mom and the boys were in the back seat, and I was seating in the front. The birth Center was only 20 minutes away, but the baby was born in the car (in front of the birthing center) at around 2pm! Obviously this was by far the craziest birth experience I’ve had, but we are grateful the baby is safe and sound and soo very, very cute! The next day was my birthday and there is no better present in the world than waking up to this lovely angel, my angel Gabriel.
