Two Days of Laboring | Lifestyle Photographer

Reader Discretion Advised:

The following paragraphs contain…. Nothing in a lot of detail, don’t worry! I won’t get gross. 🙂

Remember how I just photographed a small wedding ceremony on Friday? Well, Sunday night I started to take a turn for the worst! I was getting a lot of off and on back pain, along with tightening of my abdomen. No bueno! I couldn’t sleep…. The next morning my husband and I went to labor and delivery to get checked. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to admit me because of my contractions not being close enough together nor was I dilated enough. Boo.

So my husband and I head home and work on ways to get this thing rolling! I didn’t sleep at all the night before so I was able to take a little bit of a nap mid day, thankfully.

After napping, my husband and I went on two long walks up the hill of housing near our apartment. This was followed by the world’s spiciest hamburger helper ever. Holy cayenne pepper seasoning!

Well, to sum up everything, by midnight I was admitted to the hospital and come 1:23pm, little man was born! I spent a large majority of that day in the shower! Back labor is the worst. Don’t recommend it, but it was still worth it! I’m so glad I was able to have the natural birth that I wanted. I just wish my camera hasn’t been in repair!


I’ve added our little memoir box at least! 🙂
