The night before my first (Marron) was born, around 930 at night, I was feeling really yucky. So I went and layed down. After an hour I got up and was super uncomfortable. My husband put a bunch of pillows on the couch but that didn't make it better. SO i got up and walked around the house for another hour. My mom got up cause she heard me walking around and asked if I thought that I might be in labor. I called OB Triage and they asked how far my contractions were and I told them about 3-4 minutes and are over a minute long. They said it sounded like active labor and to come on in when I was ready. I live almost an hour from the hospital, so we left right than (which was a good thing!). When I got there they said that it must've been a full moon cause everyone was coming in to have their babies lol! After about 1 1/2 hours, the midwife came and checked me said "oh your 7 1/2 cm. We need to get you to L & D!" About 3 hours later, I had to pee really bad. SO I got up and went pee and OH BOY! I had to go the bathroom! I mean I had to GO! My mom was like DON'T PUSH!!!b Lol! Got back to the bed and the midwife checked and said "no wonder, your 9 1/2 cm". She said on my next contraction to push cause my water was still intact. I did, the water broke, and she checked again and said her head was right there. 14 minutes later, my beautiful (soon to be 4 year old) was born! ^_^ I was crying with joy (and of course I was sore! LOL!) 6 lbs 8 oz and 19 inches, She was absolutely beautiful! It's hard to think that it's been almost 4 years that I had her.

    Thank you! Well lol, my husband and I are huge Japanese anime fans. The name comes from a character on the show Dragon Ball Z. But later I found out that "a marron" is a European water-chesnut. Than just last year, I found out the Marron is an actually name which means "of the sea."
