Birth Story( a little bit late)

Dec 31, 2012 - 5 comments

Well I started out at my dr appt 12/3/12 and I had been on bedrest because of my blood pressures. My bp was slowly going back up and my ankles started to swell again and he sent me to have my labs redone at the OB. My labs and Hannah's ultrasound didn't come back to good so he started cervidil. About 430 am 12/4/12 the pitocin was started. About 945-10 am her heart rate would drop with contractions. So the nurse stopped the pitocin, put some oxygen on me and turned me on my left side. Then my contractions I was having quit. So they were talking about csection. About 1030 am the nurse decided to check me again, i was a 1+. A few minutes later my water breaks on its own and the contractions started. They hit hard fast and hard. They hurt so bad the nurse decided to put an internal monitor on Hannah 1115 am, because I kept moving and knocking the external monitor off. As she was checking me again to out the monitor on I was dilated to a 4. So about 1135 I decided that I could take any more of the pain due to I was having back labor. She checked me again and I was dilated to a 7. She called the dr to give me the epidural he finally made it about 1220 pm. I think I had 5
Contractions between the time he got there and time he got the epidural in. After getting the epidural in and got some relief. The nurses decided to check me again about 1235p and I was fully dilated and ready to push. At 1246pm Hannah was born.

Wow you had to go thru a long night! I am glad you finally got an epidural.  How is she doing I know you had said earlier that she was having some breathing difficulties, how is she doing now? How long how much did she weigh? How are you doing? I hope all is well!!

I have fairy bad back pain, & cramping, but he is totally worth all the discomfort! I cannot wait to meet him in about 7 weeks!

Sorry, I'm just seeing this now.  I'm SO happy for you!  I'm glad you were able to have her vaginally and avoid the c-section.  With my daughter by the time I asked for the epidural it was too late - I was already 9-10 cm.  She was born about 20 minutes later, so it wasn't too bad.

Hold her and hug her and lover her up!  Time is really going to start flying now for you!!
