I thought I'd start a thread of birth stories. Please still post them below. I'll move them up to here so we don't lose them!
mommy2four's Birth Story
Just wanted to let everyone know that Cheyanne Nikole has arrived. We were scheduled to go in on the 23rd for a version and a possible c-section. On Tues around 4:45 pm I started feeling what I thought was contractions as I hadn't felt them with my other births. At 5:20 when DH got home I called labor and delivery to ask if I could just come in and be checked as we knew the baby was breech, was told yes but I would probably be going home in 20 min or so. So I head off leaving Dh at home with our 3 boys. Get to hospital am monitored for 20 min had 2 major contractions, was checked and was 2 cm and 80% effaced. Well then I was told that I was to be monitored for 1 1/2 hours and checked again by the Physician coming on because since I was only 36.6 weeks they wouldn't do a section unless my body proved that I was indeed in labor. Well at 8:00 the physician comes in and checks me and I am 4 cm and fully effaced. I was told to call DH so he could take the kids to the sitter and get to the hospital. I called him at 8:15. By 8:30 I had my epidural and was headed to the OR. Dh was there with me. Cheyann Nikole made her entrance at 9:49 by c-section, weighing 6lbs6.5ozs and 18 inches long On Tues. Oct 14. We are both doing great. I am having almost no pain at my c-section incision. Have only had to take tylenol so far. I wish everyone else luck and will post updates when I have time. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR ALL THE WELL WISHES.
