Emily Elizabeth Montgomery

We are happy to announce the arrival of our sweet baby girl Emily Elizabeth! born on April 16th 2014 at 1:23 am. She was two days over my due date. Its a crazy story that felt like it was straight out of a movie. I was not emotionally ready for how crazy all the natural  stuff really is. I want to share my story here though. I was dilated to a five  ninety percent effaced the week before her due date, thinking it would be any day that week. I was SO ready for her to be here and not be preggo anymore. Those last few weeks just hurt and sleep is long gone at that point. I woke up on Tuesday April 15th with her feeling super low. That should have been a red flag to me, it was uncomfortable to the point where I felt like I couldn't pee. I should have gone in to the Dr then that day. I figured  I would wait since my next appointment was the next day first thing in the morning, whats one more day nothing is happening. Wrong. I was barely having any cramps and thinking since I was already two days over it wouldn't be a big deal. I was wrong. My brother was in town for work and stopped by later that night and we were chatting it up when I decided by about 11:30 I should go to bed, I took half a Tylenol PM thinking I will try to get in my last good nights sleep, hoping my OB at that point would just induce me the next morning. An hour later 12:45 AM I woke up jumping out of bed  from a horrible sharp pain ( Contraction) and then immediate had to bend over I couldn't stand straight up. Feeling like I had to go to the bathroom, the contraction were about every two min at that point for about 15 minutes., I knew it was time to go it felt like nothing I had felt before. Glad I had my bag packed at that point. Threw that in the car and Gerret called our friend Sean who lives down the street. Thank you Sean! Total life saver you may have witnessed much more if we had waited for you. At this point its now One am and Gerret is racing down Eldorado going about ninety miles an hour. Thank goodness it was the middle of the night and there was no traffic. Once we hit the Dallas toll Road he hit one hundred miles an hour. At that point I was banging on the door and saying how I didn't want to do this and I feel like I might throw up or die. One of the two. I barely had a minute between contractions at that point. The second he turned into the Baylor Frisco parking lot my water broke and I had to push I had no control over my body it was just happening. I remember yelling I have to push and Gerret yelled right back don't do it yet, don't do it yet. The look on his face was shear terror. I will never forget it;) He pulled right into Valet grabbed a wheel chair and hauled butt up to maternity on the second floor. The second the door opened there were two nurse and a Dr standing right there. That was luck! He wheeled me in the first room on the right and the Dr says. " when I see a girl yelling with her butt hanging off the wheel chair I know its baby time"   She ended up delivering Emily eight minutes later. I Have never stripped naked faster before in my life and literally not cared at all. I jumped on that bed  and just kept pushing. There was no time for an epidural, no time for even an IV;( they were asking a million medical question while all this was going on. I think there were five nurses in the room running around getting things ready. It was the craziest feeling of my life, and the scariest, but coolest thing ever. She came hard and fast, and there wasn't any time to think or process what was going on, I just wanted help. It also became so primal. Its amazing how the body just kicks in and knows what to do.  I am glad it happened so fast I couldn't do it if it lasted for hours on end. Then again I would have had time to get an epidural;) I have been asked a ton if it was horrible and just the worst pain even. To be honest the worst part is the contraction that hurts more then the baby its self coming out, you feel so much relief as they come out. It was insane. I laid there in shock for several hours trying to process how fast that went down. We got to the hospital at 1:15 am and 1:23 she was born. the whole thing was just over 35 min. The craziest 35 min of my life! I am so thankful all went well and there weren't any complications for her or myself. I am also so thankful for Dr Allen who ended up delivering Emily since my OB couldn't make it in time. She was a angle in  my moments of being super scared, cracking jokes like this happens to her everyday. We are so happy Emily is here and part of our family, she is the sweetest thing ever. She already has us all wrapped around her finger especially daddy!
