posted 30th Jun '12
So Thursday I felt fine except for randomely feeling like I was newly pregnant again. Went to BF house to spend time together and in the middle of playing a video game, I started getting crampy contractions that were three min apart. After an hour, and them spreading out to four minutes but being more intsense, went to L&D and found out I had dilated from 2cm to 3 and they wanted me to walk.... ohhh boy was I not happy about walking.
Oh but anyhow, my BF truck was acting up and smoking on the inside..so his dad offered for us to use his truck. Then we couldn't find the keys. On the way to my house to pick up my bag, BF started having heart palipations...oh boy..
We get to the hospital and go to the elevator we have been using for the past two months because of new construction they were doing, and when we got off, suddenly there was a wall where the door used to be to L&D. So instead of going back down the elevator and to the other one, BF decides he knows where to go and where we are. We ended up completely lost, him pushing me in a wheel chair while I'm having three min apart contractions. I was NOT happy. Then we found an elevator, and it wouldn't work. We were scared we were trapped, but the doors ended up finally opening.
So we finally get there and they check me and I'm 3 cm, and she wants me to walk for an HOUR. After a half hour I told her to check me and if I hadn't made progress I would continue walking. I had dilated 1/2 cm and she admitted me. That night I only got about 2 hours of sleep, and at 5-6 in the morning they started me on pitocin which wasn't too bad. But when they broke my water at 10 all hell broke loose. The contractions started coming at 1 1/2 min apart and I couldn't breathe/cry/or anything. They gave me a drug that made me incredibly loopy to the point where I couldn't hold open my eyes and had to wait a half hour to get the Epi because the guy was doing a C-section. Honestly, I have no idea how people do natural births, that epidural was AMAZING. Within twenty min of having it, I pushed a total of three times within 5 min and my baby boy was born 7lbs 3 oz at 11:42am. Hes absolutely perfect, doesn't cry unless hes in pain or hungry and sleeps constantly (I have to wake him up to feed). So glad he came at 39 weeks instead of way earlier like we predicted.
