So this is going to be really long but so much went on that week that I wanted to document everything...

Monday- went to the doctors for regurlar check up and found out I was 2 dialated and 80 effaced was having contraction so my doctor decided to sweep my membrans in hopes that I would go into labor naturally.. After having my membrans swept I felt contraction alittle stronger so I decided to go to my moms house cause I lived 30 mins away from hospital and husband was at work..

That evening the contraction got stronger and was 15 mins apart so we went to the hospital, I was sure I was going to have the baby that day but after a hour of being up there the contraction became irregular and was not changing my cervix so I was sent home..

Tuesday- I had a ultrasound appt, it went as well as it could but ran into some complications, first my uterus still showed aging, baby tummy was big and he was 8 pounds, amniotic fluid was a 6 which normal is a 10.. Overall baby was happy and was doing good growing, so the doctor told me to go home and they will speak with my doctor about a game plan on when to induce..

Wednesday- I got up feeling very emotional, the doctor called and told me about results and confirmed me doc appt for thursday. she mention that they would induce me at 40 weeks so I was excited about that.. after talking to her I felt wet, I went to bathroom to wash down and wondered if it was amniotic.. But after a few hours I got no more leaking but was having some contraction so I went to bed around 12am

Thursday- I woke up at 230 am with a gush a liquid coming out, I jumped up thinking I had peed myself, after washing up I walked around the house and realised i was still leaking and everytime I had a contraction I leaked more so I woke my husband up and told him I think my water broke, He rushed up and looked to be dazed.. We got to the hospital around 330 and they confirmed that I was indeed leaking amniotic fluid..

At 5:00 they put me in my room and we called the family to tell them the news, at 6:00 they gave me pitocin..

At 12 the contractions started getting really strong so I asked for some medication through IV called nubane, It did nothing to the pain but made me feel High and emotional..

At 4 the contractions became unbearable so I reluctently ask for epidural I was only dialed 4 at the time, at 430 the anesthesiologist  came in to put in the epi, let me just say that It was so frustrating trying to keep still through contractions and made the experience hard..

After the epidural was in it did nothing for me not even take a piece of the pain away, I wasnt even numb... It was horrible I went through the entire pregnancy in extreme pain and nothing worked..

at 530 I was fully dialated and let me say that the urge to push was strong and, the doctor showed up at 600 and I started pushing, I felt everything and the classic ring of FIRE lol... I pushed 5 times and he was born at 6:13 pm..

He was so adorable I actually cried, was like I was having a out of body experience.... I did rip and had a second degree tear but all was well..

So thats my birth story I hope I said it all lol, If I ever get pregnant again I wish the epi would work cause It was horrible basically going natural lol, but I would say I feel like I conqured a milestone and to know that I was able to do it and have him here make him even more a blessing and I love hime so much.. thank you all for reading my LONG JOURNAL



Results from Ultra sound

Dec 11, 2010 - 3 comments

Well as some of u know Im in the hospital cause my sugar has been as high as 220 and as low as 60, my blood pressure was a little high when I arrived but is doing good now...

They have given me insulin to control my sugar and a diabetic diet and so far everything is ok, BUT.... When I went in to have a ultrasound this is what they have said...

My placenta is not allowing enough oxygen to baby and the placenta is starting to deteriorate, baby has a fatty tummy, from my lmp my due date would of been jan 18th which will make me 34 weeks, my due date has been debated from either the 18th or the 7th... Today the ultrasound put me at 36 weeks and 4 days..... He is weighing  7 pounds now... I was in the normal range 2 weeks ago and now im 95% higher then most people baby growth and only 5% of babies is bigger then mine....

my fluid levels is almost back to normal, its not to bad....

they are thinking about having me due a csection in a few weeks, but they will keep measuring me and im considered high risk...

This has been an emotional rollercoaster and I maybe sent home today on insulin but they are not sure yet....
I dnt know what to think but im sure doctors know best and baby and I will be in good hands either way, Im still scared of the unknow though..

well thats it, my busy day, oh and not to mention my husband found this the best time to argue with me and stress me out even more lol now we are not talking

Dont know what to do?

Ok so me and my husband sister is very close, shes 25 have a ok job, now living with her father and things seemed to be alright...

Well that was until 3 months ago or so she found out she was pregnant out of wetlock, meaning the man was a one timer and is no more...

the family totally dnt agree with abortions so it wasnt hard talking her out of that, problem is now she wants to give her baby up for adoption and it hurts me that she can even think of that with her past..

my husband and her was in the foster care when they was young and was about to get adopted by people they hated if there father didnt come back and took them out...

Im so disappointed in the fact that she is not in a hopeless situation and between her and her father can truly afford raising this baby... why does the baby have to suffer because u decided u didnt want to use protection and take responsibliity for ur actions...

Me and husband talked, and Now we are in a situation where we may take the baby...

You see we feel like later she will regret the decision and if she do she can easily come get whats hers, but not only that, we feel that we can provide the baby what he/she needs and its better for the baby to have a family that he/she know and still close to momma....

ARE WE MAKING A BAD DECISION?????? MY HEART CANT JUST LET THIS PRECIOUS GIFT FROM GOD GO TO JUST ANYONE...

Ok some of u may know  Im on bedrest, My mom called yesterday and ask if I could watch my sister baby caleb for a little while she go on 2 interview... Of course I said yes cause I love caleb and didnt want him going to a total stranger.... So sister dropped him off this morning and me and caleb had a blast... hes been using all the things I bought for my baby and he loves them all... I recorded some of his smiling moments and I was pride of my 2 dogs cause they have not bothered him nore have they even came around him... Of course anytime I have him on the floor the dogs get put in cage but other then that he is always in my arms.... So anyway, My mom called me and demanded that I kept the dogs in the cage... Im like WHAT!!! How are u going to tell e how to run y household when first Im not getting paid for this second, U was going to leave him with a total stranger and would not tell them how to run there household and 3 im on bedrest and shouldnt be lefting holding nore watching him in the first place....

Iam so pissed off right now that I said i would never watch him again.... I love caleb just as much as they do and would not alow ANYTHING to happen... Hes in my arms the whole time and im having a baby of my on... My dogs ( a yorkie-poo and miniture labadoodle) are very small and good dogs...

I understand the concern but u was going to alow him to get watched with someone that is a smoker and only doing it for money and someone she dnt even know nore have any background info of so wth!!!!
