I woke up at 9am, December 10, 2012 with a wet spot in my panties that leaked through my shorts onto my bed. I knew it wasn't pee, but it wasn't a ton of fluid so I wasn't sure if my water was leaking or not. I called my OB & was told to go to L&D just in case. I got to the hospital around 10:30am & waited for a nurse to check me. I jad to fill out papers first & answer questions, she hooked me up to a blood pressure cuff, heart monitor for baby & all that good stuff. Finally about 11:00am she checked me, I was dilated at a 4 & fully effaced. She swabbed me & come to find my water was leaking. I also had a very high blood pressure. She called my OB & they decided to admit me around 12:30pm. I was taken to my room around 1:00pm & got hooked up to all the monitors again. My OB arrived at the hospital at 2:00pm & started me on pitocin since I wasn't feeling any contractions. OB broke my waters completely at 2:30pm & shortly after my contractions started. They weren't too bad at first, but 2 hours after my waters broke they started getting very intense. 4:30pm came around & I was ready for my epidural. Contractions were about a minute apart & very painful. I got my epidural & it failed! All that was numbed was my left leg. I could still feel every contraction & they were getting worse. My nirse came back in about an hour later, maybe a bit sooner, it just felt like forever. By this time my contractions were 30 seconds apart & off the charts. She called in someone else to give me more juice. It kicked in about 15 minutes later. I was sooo relieved. I was laughing through contractions & making jokes with everyone. So happy, lol. A few minutes later my nurse came back & checked me. I was already at an 8. I was shocked I progressed that fast. She left & came back about 20 minutes later & told me the baby had lots of hair. I was like, umm how do you know that. She told me his head was on it's way out all on it's own. She called my doctor & I began pushing before he even got in the room. My beautiful baby boy was born at 6:26pm. He weighed 7 lbs 4.8 oz & was 19 1/2 inches long. The most perfect thing I have ever layed eyes on. <3
