Natural Hospital Birth

I was 38 weeks and 5 days pregnant when I went into labor. Just one day prior, My daughter’s father and I went to my mother’s house to go to the state fair. I was so over being pregnant, I decided to walk the baby out. I went into labor early that morning around 2 AM. Thankfully, I slept through most of my labor and the next morning we took the two hour drive back to Atlanta. I stayed home until 7 PM then labored naturally at the hospital before giving birth.
