Two weeks earlier at one of my very last OB appointments, my doctor and I discussed an induction. She scheduled my induction or Friday March 21st.. which was also my due date. I was told to be at LnD at 6 am. So that was the plan. In those last two weeks I prepared for the arrival of our new addition and also prepared myself mentally to have a new baby and to become a mother again.
The day came, and it was 5:15 am Markus and I were getting dressed ready to go to the hospital... And the phone rings. Its LnD and they are telling me that they cant induce me that day and that it would either have to be Saturday or Monday. I was so irritated but Markus was even more upset because he took his vacation at work for her birth and we cant afford for him to take more time off right now. Anyways, I hadnt gotten to sleep that much that Night. I kept waking up thinking I had severe hip Pain or that I needed to poop lol. When I finally got completely awake I realized what my Pain was and It was contractions and they were 3 minutes apart. I timed them for a few hours and then decided I would call.
I always thought I was suppose to call LnD if I thought I was in labor, so thats what I did. When I called they acted like it was strange that I was calling them. They told me to call my doctor and ask what she wanted me to do. I call my doctor and was told to go into LnD. I got ready and was about to go and the phone rings. Its my doctors Office telling me to come to Clinic instead of LnD, but they wanted me to come to clinic 2 1/2 hours from the time they called. At this time I was about tired of the phone ringing and I was in Pain!
So... I go into the Clinic and they hook me to a contraction monitor that was probably older then I am.they didnt pick up my contractions barely at all.. and I felt like people thought I was making it up. My doctor decided to see if I was dilated or not, and this would determin if I was going to the hospital or not. I was infact dilated to a 5! To the hospital I went!
When I got there I got the epidural right away and their candy needs machine picked up the contractions like crazy! I wasnt even in the hospital an hour and the nurse checked me again to see if I dilated anymore. She checked and then said "I'm calling your doctor, we're having a baby", I said "how dilated am I" and she said "to a 10!" I didnt even have time to grasp what was happening, it was happening too fast!
My doctor showed up and we began pushing. The pressure was insane! It took about an hour to push her out and then she was here! Alyvia Heaven Black, 9.13 lbs, 20 1/3 inches Long, and lots of black Hait! They had to monitor her sugar since she was a big girl, but all was okay! Shes a Sweetheart, loves milk, latches well, and barely cries!
Aubree as soon as she seen Alyvia she kissed her and snuggled her, it was so sweet. Aubree does have her jealous times though.
This birth was much better then my first, and I didnt have to get stiches so thats great! Im just sore and I hate this blood! No more kids for me for like 3 years though!
Markus is just so happy, and loves his girls. Hes really been great! I feel so complete!
