We celebrated this sweet little lady’s fifth birthday the other day, and I thought what a great time to share her birth story! 💗
We had been blueberry picking that morning, and I was SOOO over being pregnant! My HUGE baby belly, the heat, and sheer exhaustion was getting the best of me, and I was so defeated. Didn’t know how the fuck I could possibly be pregnant another second/minute/hour, let alone day(s) !?!! 😫😥... We got home around 12 that day, and Tony had been up all night from working the night shift, so he decided to take a nap while Truly (she was 18 months at the time) took her nap, before he had to go in that night. Well, Lucy had other plans; and as soon as he closed his eyes, the contractions started.. I ignored them at first, knowing I had been having Braxton Hicks for weeks. I surfed Facebook, trying to distract my mind. They got stronger. Harder to pretend they weren’t indeed happening. I messaged my friend to get her birth ball ready, and wait for me to give her the thumbs up to come, in case this was it!! It was now around 2pm.
Not even five minutes later, I was in the bedroom, waking Tony up, telling him to start filling the pool and that THIS WAS IT!! He didn’t believe me.. 🤣🖕🏼 He also just wanted to sleep, so I don’t blame him! ... So I kept doing my thing, which was at this point to pace, and go back on fb to try to ignore the obvious. Damn, denial is a powerful thing!! 😂
