I’ve written this post about 10 times and my computer at home eats the post 🙁
Maddy made her grand entrance on 10-10-11 at 7:13pm and we couldn’t be more in love with her 🙂 7lbs 12.5oz 19″ long
My day started with a 8:50am dr. appointment, after finding out that I didn’t dilate anymore still at 4 but 100% effaced and she was low the Dr. ask if I wanted to wait it out or get the show on the road. I was tired, swollen, and in pain. So they tried to schedule me for the next morning but the hospital had conflicting schedules and it was looking like Thurs or Fri until the nurse said the could get me in at 11 that day!!!
So I went home and ran around like a crazy lady getting all the last minute things done, we got to the hospital without a minute to spare! I really wished they would’ve broke my water first but they started pitocin instead. It did nothing except basically stop the contractions, finally at 4:30 they broke my water. The painful contractions started within 15 seconds, they had me get up to use the bathroom and the rest of my water came out like the great flood, and I managed to somehow pull my IV out so water and blood were pouring out of me, it was comical.
The nurse had a very worried look on her face after we lost 15 minutes trying to get my IV back in, the epi needed to be started and soon. She didn’t have time to check me before it started but by the time it was in I was complete and ready to push. I couldn’t feel the contractions or my legs, but everytime I pushed I felt everything. I pushed for an hour and she was finally out!!!
She’s perfect, she cries when hungry, then she’s alert and looks around for a while before going back to bed. Night and day difference between her and my son 🙂
