Labor Story (:

Oct 08, 2014 - 0 comments

On Tuesday morning September 23 I woke up with cramps but when on with my day didn't think nothing of it. Since the next morning I was going to get induced . I was running errands all day trying to get the last cleaning on my son's room. I had the cramps all day and around 5 pm they become constant 10-15 . I took a shower and layed down tried to get some rest but I couldn't. At 7 my contractions  were 4-7 minutes apart . But I didn't want to go to the hospital because I felt they were going to send me home and I would have to go back in the morning. But my family finally convinced me to go. I got to the hospital around 9pm,  got checked and was only 1cm dialed but got admitted because I got a fever. A little while afterwards my water broke on the bed. At 11 I got some pain medicine worked for 30 mintues and was 3cm dilated.A little while later got an epidural but so upset didn't work. The Anaesthesiologist numbed be 3 different spots because he couldn't find the right stop. Well my son heart rate kept dropping after the epidural and they were planning to do a emergency c-section.  I got on oxygen and his heart rate got better. I was in so much pain contractions are no joke ladies! I started feeling sick throwing up until I gave birth. Around 6am I was 9cm dilated almost at a 10 so they had me do practice pushes but I gave up after 2-3. A little later I had the urge to push and yes I was at a 10cm and ready. It just took a couple big pushes and my beautiful baby boy came out.
