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