Birth story of Myah Addison
February 2, 2010
5lbs 14 oz
Friday, January 29 - Doc appt he stips my memebranes and says to call him monday if nothing happens over the weekend. Baby has its hand on its head.
Monday, Feb 1 - Well nothing happened over the weekend that was productive. So he takes all morn to decide that he does not want to induce me for the reason of that hand. They then talk a c sec and I got so scared. I was crying and I talked and pleaded with baby to move.
Tueday, Feb 2 - Wake up as norm just fine no contractions. get doing things around the house and near 8 am a start to get a few contractions so I sit down and time them for a bit. They are 3-4 mins lasting just over a min around 9 am I start to get the shakes (I was not cold). I call dh tell him he needs to come home and I start making calls to find someone to watch the other 4 kids. My sister takes them for a while but she had to work so I let dh deal with that since I was a bit busy. We get to L&D at 1030 am and they get me on the monitor and the contraction are lasting longer than I had thought. they aslo check me and I am at 4 cm. so they have me walk for a while and check again around 2pm and I was at 5 cm. so they admit me then and tell me my doc will be in around 430pm to break my water..... I panic a lil cuz I know how fast things move after it is broken.
Doc arrives at 345pm ( 45 mins early).... he checks and I have gone backward i am now only 3cm. doc looks for a hand and finds none. so he sees if he can get baby to stay down and he is able to hold baby down on my cervix and so he breaks my water. Turned out to be a good thing. I had polyhydramnios (too much fluid). Apparently you are to have around a quart of fluid; I had close to if not over a gallon. So he broke my water at 402 pm and I got supper around 5 and like normal I could not eat it. They also hooked me to the monitors for a while to make sure the head stayed down and the cord did not fall down. So I ask for my supper to be place in the fridge for later.. Dh tries to eat the meal they gave him as well between my contractions cuz they had picked up. So this is around 530pm and I get taken off the monitor. I can't remember what happen between 530pm and 630pm. Nurse comes in and checks at 630 and then we debate whether I was going to walk or ride to the bigger room (it was full when I was admited) I walked tothe bigger room (which in hindsight was not such a good idea to me). So at 7pm we get to the bigger room and I labor in there for 15 mins while hanging on dh wanting to cry. Then my doc comes in and says "You're gb+. we need to get the anti's on board". So the nurse was quick and worked with me and got the iv in between contractions. They waited and had me breathe thru 2 contractions on the bed while the anti's flow in. Once they were in doc checks again and I am at 8cm and 100%. He says that we need to get set up that cervix will melt away and no sooner than he siad that and I was grunting. While waiting for a contraction; doc looks at dh and asks if he wants to catch baby. Dh had a look of surprise and decided not to. I was complete at 722pm. Dh got to annouce to the room what baby is. Myah was born into the world at 727pm. They laid her on my chest and suddenly I did not have a name for her. DH cut the cord. Myah started making odd noises breathing so I had them take her to the warmer to check her out and she was fine. I got the first hour to bond with her before they gave her the meds (vit k and eye goop) she nursed well in that hour and acted like she had been for months.
She was sent home on a bili blanket and has now come off that and is gianing wieght like she should.
