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
