    Default Birth Story

    Jan 9, 2013 (my due date)

    Went walking with my friend from about 4:45 pm to 5:15, started having good contrax about 6:00, got really painful but still not too close together, by 7:00 I knew we needed to get things together and get to hospital. Dropped DD off at same friends house about 8:25 got to hospital a few minutes later. Dr checked me I was at 4 cm 80% effaced and her head was right there. He predicted I would dilate fast. Contrax started getting VERY painful got epidural placed but I was still feeling everything. Water broke on its own...trace of meconium. Dr checked me i was 6 cm 100 % effaced. Anesthesiologist adjusted epidural and I was FINALLY numb dr checked again I was complete.. Started pushing about 11:30 pushed 5-6 times. Completely different from my experience with DD (had to be induced, 24+ hours labor)

    Alivia Christi Sh****s was born at 11:39 pm. 8 lb 6 oz 20.5 inches. Nursed right away. Apgars 8 and 9

    It is now 3.5 weeks later and we are all doing great. Exhausted, but great.

    Oh and all I have at home is an iPad so I can't share pics until I can get to a library which will be awhile
