♥ Happy 15th Courtney

Happy 15th Birthday to my beautiful Courtney Lyn Westbrook!!  I love you!! ♥ Cake

Courtney you are my little Pooh bear!! ♥

At 13 weeks of pregnancy I was put on bed rest and at 19 weeks she had dropped down…we were so scared she was going to come way too early.  When I was 21 weeks along  I started to have contractions, so they put me on Breathaline to stop the contractions.   At 28 weeks, I had developed  ‘preeclampsia’ and  was now going in for non-stress tests weekly.   At 33 weeks, I was dilated to a 2, thinning, and having contractions.  Courtney’s due date was February 3rd, 1996.

On February 4th my contractions were 7 minutes apart until 12:30am on February 5th.  That is when we left for the hospital.  Once I got to the hospital I was dilated to an 8 and 100% effaced.  They had to call the doctor before they could brake my water.  Once they broke my water Courtney was born 20 minutes later at 2:38am.  As with Alec’s labor, I could not have any pain meds, which again, I felt everything.  This is when I realized that natural contractions vs. induced contractions are so much easier, less intense and a lot less painful.  Another labor of LOVE for eternity!!  ♥
