Sep 18, 2009 - 3 comments

Went in at 10am to be induced on thursday 9-17-09 got situated and hooked up to the poticin at 11am, i was having contraction when they hooked me up to monitor, i thought it was braxton hicks i was feeling all this time but she said no those are contractions so i figured wow i should be having this baby within the next 8 hours.  Contractions were every 2-4 min, at 3:15 the broke my water bag and contractions got stronger,at 4pm i was getting an epidural and i was fine:)  I was only 4cm dialated. she checked me at 5pm and i was still 4cm and only 60% effaced at 8pm no change at 10pm i was 6-7cm and 70% effaced.  From 10pm to 3:30 am the next day i was still 6-7cm, by this time my mother and sister went home, my sister had to work at 8am.  My ex-fiance was there with me. 4:30 im crying and upset that i have not changed and i was very uncomfortable with my legs being so numb, i told the nurse to cal my dr and tell her i want a c-section, i was out of it and was having hunger headaches, last time i had something to eat was 9-17-09 at 8:30, felt like i was being starved to death. The nurse told me my dr was on here way to the hospital bcuz she had a total of 4 women having babies. 6:30 im on the call light crying when is she coming i cant take it any more, then the nurse checked me and said well your ar 8cm, i said i dont care 8.9, i want the baby out now. I said my water bag has been broken since 3:15 and i dont want to wait to 3:15 pm to be told i have to have a c-section, she said as long as the baby is not in any distress your dr may make you wait b4 the 24hour mark of having your water bag broke.  Of course i was pissed.  Then ex-fiance gets up from sleeping bcuz he hears me yelling and rubs my head and say just relax and take deep breathes you cant get threw this.  My dr shows up at 7:30 and said if you didnt make any progress we will do a c-section, she checked me and i was 9cm and told the nurse to put me in position to start pushing, she was going cross the hall to deliver a baby and wold be back. so at 7:45 i started pushing with contractions and boy did my bottom hurt, i was like i thought the epidural takes care of this pain. i pushed and pushed and then she says stop, i can see the head, we gota wait for the dr.  how do you just stop pushing, dr came in, i continued to push then i started crying, they had me do 4 sets of pushing and after the 4th i was out of breath and could not push, my mom came and held my hand saying she is almost out, ex-fiance was like you can do it.  So one last push and she was out. No stitches, i was amazed she was only an ounce away from being 8lbs.  Dr put her on my chest and i got to bond and nurse her right away, it was a joyful moment, i was so emotional and i just love her to death.  She is so beautiful, I was crying, ex fiance, my mom and even my dr, she said she was happy for me bucz of how hard i took the m/c in june of 08; I just cant beleive my induction took that da mn long:(  but it was worth it in the long run.  I got go home and find my baby pic, i swear she almost resembles that pic. We are not settled in our room.
