Water Broke

My water broke at about 1:00 am. Not many contractions yet. I can't sleep because of the constant trickle. We should have a baby soon!

My last appointment with U/S showed the placenta way out of the way, so we are good to go! I can't wait to meet this baby girl!

So I finally have a second to update. Things have been CRAZY around here. Having 3 little ones is every bit as nutso crazy as I thought it would be, probably more so than I thought.

Elizabeth was born at 12:40 pm on Aug. 8. After my water broke, I wasn't feeling ANY contractions until about 3:00 am. They were very inconsistent and not very strong. We left for the hospital because I was leaking and running out of pads, and it is a 45 min. drive. We arrived at around 5:00, got checked in and into the labor/delivery room about 6:15. I was listening to my hypnobabies and feeling really relaxed. Things were going well, but still very inconsistent. Finally at around 9:30 I decided on an epidural. Then the contractions were very inconsistent and weak. We decided some pitocin would help. The nurse turned the pitocin off after about an hour because the contractions were coming very quickly and very strong. I could feel them, which was a good thing, because I knew I needed to push. We called the nurse in and she checked me and indeed it was time to push. She called the Dr. and by the time they were all suited up, the Dr. told me to start pushing. DH was there to deliver the baby and she let him do everything. She didn't hardly do anything! I pushed for less than 3 minutes and she was born!
All in all, it was a great delivery. She latched on easily and nurses great. She is a little cutie pie. I will post some pics when I get another minute. Right now I need to get DD out of her high chair.

Thanks for all of the well wishes!
