What’s Your Birth Story, Mom?

Sydney Pauley

My husband deployed when I was 5 months pregnant. There was a lot of fear that he was going to miss the birth of our daughter. She was due January 7th, 2011 which was the day that he was supposed to be released for leave. As the days got marked off the calendar, I still was not thinning, yet somehow I knew she wasn’t gonna wait. Just days before Christmas my husband was given an amazing opportunity, change his leave date and come home. He got off the plane on Christmas Eve, Santa brought me my present early! After Christmas the doctor said I was finally starting to thin but we were already talking about induction. My induction date was set. 3 days later, I woke up, I looked at my husband and said “I wanna walk. I want to go in to labor by tonight and have this baby by tomorrow morning!” and that’s exactly what I did! We went to the mall and walked. I began to get pains but I didn’t think anything of it. I guess I didn’t believe that that was really gonna happen. 7 hours later, after spending most of that time playing Wii, I finally get convinced to go to the hospital where I found out I had indeed been in labor for the last 7 hours! I thought I’d be in more pain then I was, so I guess I was in disbelief. I took the epidural when I was 5cm because I was told it would help me progress. Looking back on it, I wish I hadn’t or at least had waited longer. The epidural wasn’t as bad as I expected though, being scared of needles I think I was more scared of that then anything else but my husband was there for me every step of the way! It was an easy delivery, 4 pushes is all she took. It was nothing like I had imagined from the movies. It was calm and quiet, I didn’t scream, I didn’t moan, I didn’t even sweat. Cadence Rae Pauley was ready to enter the world, and she did at 7:11 a.m. on December 31st, 2010! What a Happy New Years Eve it was! Lol She was 7lbs 13oz, 20 and 1/2 inches of pure perfection!!! I couldn’t take my eyes off her, me and my husband both cried as the nurse handed me this beautiful little girl that we made! It was the perfect way to end the year!

My husband and I started dating in the 7th grade. We decided to just be best friends and then started dating again our senior year. We were only 19 when we got married. We both wanted to expand our family and it only took us three months to conceive. My birthday is December 7th and and Zach’s is December 21st. Exactly a week in between our birthdays, December 14th, I went into labor. I got an epidural in the beginning, but I was in labor for 16 hours. So it had wore off when it was time to push. Our son, Camdon Ryan, was born December 15th at 12:29 a.m., weighing 8 pounds 10.6 ounces and was 21 1/2 inches long. It was the best day of our lives. I love being a mommy to a boy. The bond is so amazing!

Riley Alan Bollinger was Born on Oct 6, 2010 at 9:33pm and he weighed
7lbs 9.7oz and was 20 inches long. Labor started around 2am that
previous morning at a McDonalds 24 hour drive in where I ordered
chicken nuggets and french fries with sweet tea. Once we got home I
started to feel sharp pain that took my breath away I of course
thought it was practice contractions but I was so wrong after about 4
hours of the pain and not being able to sleep I got up and woke my
best friend Chris up and told him it was time we grabbed my bag and
called the doctor. When we got to the hospital my pain was
overbearing. I called everyone who needed to be there including my
dady who was 3 hours away. Morning came and went and I stayed at 1cm
and 50% effaced. My daddy got to the hospital at about 4pm as the
doctors were planning to break my water at 6pm if it didnt break on
its own. So I did some walking around and laboring in the water and
kept begging for relief but everyone knew my plan was to have a drug
free labor and birth. At about 8:30pm the doctor came in to check on
me and I was no more dilated or effaced than before. So they got their
gear together and broke my water after what seemed like forever I felt
like I was pooping my doctor was already leaving from her shift and my
bff stopped her and told her it was time. And sure enough at 9:33pm my
little bundle was born.

The IntelliGender Gender Prediction Test ~ So…How Does It Work?

Curious about baby’s gender? The IntelliGender Gender Prediction Test is a fun pre-birth experience for moms who can’t wait to know! Use as early as 10 weeks of pregnancy in the comfort of your own home.
We are asked often how our test works. Well, we have an answer for you!

IntelliGender’s Gender Prediction Test is a simple urine analysis similar to the pregnancy test you took a few weeks ago. It uses first morning urine and a proprietary mix of chemicals which reacts with a combination of hormones to indicate the gender of your baby. It is an easy test to perform and provides quick results in-home so the news can be shared right away.
Our test is NOT a Ph test, nor a Drano test. Normal Ph for urine will vary from 4.5 to 8. In laboratory testing, the Ph of every sample is measured and both girl results and boy results span the Ph range of 4.5 to 8 with no relevance to gender.
It is critical to follow the instructions step by step when testing. First morning urine is critical. Failing to do so could lead to an inconclusive or inaccurate result. Remember to swirl, not shake. Refrain from sexual activity for at least 48 hours prior to testing. Preliminary tests indicate that there may be a link between false boy results and recent sexual intimacy.
IntelliGender does not recommend making any financial, emotional or family planning decisions based on the test results. This includes painting the nursery.
Take a peek at our independent studies as well, mom. They are quite interesting and very informative. Have a look!
