After a really stressful pregnancy I finally got to meet my little girl!!
I went to the OB on the 29th and they said no induction. The next day i decided today i WAS going to go into labor...lol. so i went to the store and walked around for about 2 hours, than carried all the groceries into the house (up a flight of stairs) it took about 6 trips. I didn't want my hubby to help cause that would mean less trips. My son really was hyper so we danced for a while and finally he went to bed at about 10:30. My hubby asked if he could go over to a friends house and I said that I think that i may need to go to the L&D that night cause i was hurting so bad. So his friend came and picked him up. I spent the night on the computer at one point i got up and i felt a gush. I didn't think anything of it cause that was a common thing this pregnancy. well i eventually went to bed and in the morning my contractions were still about 6 mintues apart and they were a little more painful. My son was being hyper active and just wanting to hang out. I finally got him to go down for a nap and went to the bathroom, I wiped and a huge piece of my plug came out and there was some blood. I knew i was getting close so i decided to go to the L&D. i woke up my husband and told him i was going in and to keep his phone on jsut in case. so i grabbed my son dropped him off with my mom, they decided that they didn't want me driving so my sister took me in. we got there at 11. i told them what was going on and they decided to check to see if my water had broken. i went to the bathroom again and this time there was still plug coming out and this time red blood spots. we did the test and there was a faint positive so they had to admit me ( 11:30) I got to pick out my room since i was the only labor paitent in there.
My sister went to go pick up my husband. at 2 they checked my cervix and i had only dilated 1/2 cm. so they decided to do the pill to try and rippen my cervix and get my contractions more normal and more painful. well at 7 i was 4 cm and i got my IV drugs. about 5 contractions (30 mintues) later i was needing an epidural. It worked like a charm. Everything felt sooo heavy. i was checked and i was 7 cm. i was in the transistion stage. at 10:30 i asked the nurse how was i supposed to tell if i had to push i wasn't feeling a thing. she said it feels like you have to take the worlds biggest dump, i said i feel that now. she checked me 8 cm. at 11:20 i was about 9 1/2 and had to wait. the doc came in and broke my water. she was still kinda high at that point 11:30 i was really needing to push so they checked me still i was at 9 1/2. but she had dropped to about 3 inchs from crowning. the doc rushed in, checked me and gave me the ok to push. everyone was busy getting ready to catch so i decided to hold off on pushing until someone was there to catch. 10 minutes later i was holding a beautiful baby girl.
