Well I started out at my dr appt 12/3/12 and I had been on bedrest because of my blood pressures. My bp was slowly going back up and my ankles started to swell again and he sent me to have my labs redone at the OB. My labs and Hannah's ultrasound didn't come back to good so he started cervidil. About 430 am 12/4/12 the pitocin was started. About 945-10 am her heart rate would drop with contractions. So the nurse stopped the pitocin, put some oxygen on me and turned me on my left side. Then my contractions I was having quit. So they were talking about csection. About 1030 am the nurse decided to check me again, i was a 1+. A few minutes later my water breaks on its own and the contractions started. They hit hard fast and hard. They hurt so bad the nurse decided to put an internal monitor on Hannah 1115 am, because I kept moving and knocking the external monitor off. As she was checking me again to out the monitor on I was dilated to a 4. So about 1135 I decided that I could take any more of the pain due to I was having back labor. She checked me again and I was dilated to a 7. She called the dr to give me the epidural he finally made it about 1220 pm. I think I had 5
Contractions between the time he got there and time he got the epidural in. After getting the epidural in and got some relief. The nurses decided to check me again about 1235p and I was fully dilated and ready to push. At 1246pm Hannah was born.
