Noah is here!! Labor story (long)
posted 9th Nov
I finally had my beautiful baby boy! Woke up this morning around 6:30 feeling pretty crampy, went to the bathroom and noticed a ton of mucus. Went along the morning having irregular, but painless contractions.
Around 10 in the morning, they started to get more painful, but still not regular so I walked around the house for about 20 to 30 minutes and when I sat down felt a small gush. When I went to the bathroom to check I had noticed blood, so finally decided to tell SO I think im finally in labor and lets go (after he had been bugging me all morning to go anyway).
Got to the hospital around 11 I'd say and had my cervix checked to find out I was 5CM yay and they were keeping me. The contractions were still irregular and not to painful though. Once they got me to a room, they set up my IV drip for antibiotics (I was GBS positive.)
The contractions really started to get painful by like 1 and I was begging for my Epi, but they were still irregular. Got the epi around 2:30 and was dilated to 7. They started a bit of Pitocin to get them more regular, and checked me around 2:45 after I got the epi and Pit going, had my water broken and I was already 9cm and bawling my eyes out because of all the pressure. Around 2:55 I told them I had to push, they didnt seem to believe me so I yelled at them lol
Anyways, once they checked me I was already pushing, and Noah was born at 3:02 p.m. on November 8th 2012!!!
He is a whopping 8 pounds 7 1/2 ounces and 19 inches long, got right onto the boob about 20 minutes after he came out and hasnt been off much since.
I will post pics as soon as I get home to my computer, good luck to the rest of you November mommas and wishing you all to have an easy, quick labor like me!!
I have 6 kids & 3 angel babies & live in Washington
