Okay, now that I am home and actually have time to sit down. Bailey Mae was born Oct 22nd at 5:37pm!
Sunday morning around 5 am I got up and went to the bathroom only to notice that I had lost every single piece of my mucus plug. I kept losing mucus and started having a few contractions, but nothing worth keeping track of. I done some things around the house and went and picked up my oldest, from her dad's, around 3, then went to my mom and dad's to spend some time with my grandmother. The contractions started getting stronger and more painful, but were very speratic, nothing timeable. Started to get rather hungry, so we ordered some pizza. I told mom that I'd wait on pizza, pick Mack up (who was up the street at my sister's house) and go home. I would hate to go into the hospital and be sent back home just to be back up there at 11 for my c-section, so I was just going to wait on my water to break. Since there was none of that happening, it was pointless for me to hang around, I was ready to get in bed. Pizza got there about an hour later, and I followed the pizza and my mom in the kitchen. I grabbed a bite of cheesy bread and took a bite, and as soon as I did, my water broke. By the time Timmy got there to pick me up from mom's to take me to the hospital, which was only an hour, it looked like I took a shower I was so wet. Got to L&D, admitted me and got me in a room and decided to let me labor on my own without any pitocin. By that time, I was still 1cm. Around 2am, I was checked again and there was no change, so I was given some pitocin and moved to labor on my side. They moved me on my side to get the baby facing the right way. Oh my goodness, that was the most intense pain I have ever felt before. Around 9am, I was given an epidural. I was making slow and stead progress, about 1cm per hour or so. Around 4 I was checked and I was a good 6 1/2 cm, but they noticed that the babies heart rate was steady above 170 and getting higher. The OB came in and told me that I would be going in for a c-section. Again, she was born at 5:37pm on Oct 22nd, and weighed 7lbs, 6oz and was 20 inches long. I couldn't be happier.
