Everything looks good, baby was moving about. I am officially joining Team Pink, it's a Girl!
November 10, 2008
Went for my 3rd and final U/S tech didn't really share much, she just got the anatomical stuff that they couldn't get during the September appointment and confirmed that the baby is a girl.
November 27, 2008
After a fall on the stairs and a trip to the ER, I got another ultrasound done. Baby is a week behind but perfectly healhty and is already head down.
January 2, 2009
Belly was measuring small at my last OB appointment (Dec 29), was sent for an ultrasound to check on the size. Baby is still measuring on schedule and got a perfect score, she's healthy and still head down.
Wednesday January 21
I got up and there was blood in my mucus, I spent the morning in L&D and at the end of the day was told I had lost my mucus plug and to come in Sunday morning for another exam at the hospital with my OB. All bleeding cleared up by Thursday morning.
Sunday January 25
10:00 AM - I showed up at the hospital and checked in, they promptly sent me to a birthing room and told me to change into the hospital robes then hooked me up to monitors. Baby was sounding great, I was not contracting but my blood pressure which was high for the past 6 weeks sky rocketed 150/105. Two things would be done to get my BP in check, first I was given heart medicine and second my water would be broken so I could have the baby and get my BP in control.
1:00 PM - My doctor was very busy so it took him till this time to break my water, he determined that I was 3cm and 25% effaced. I was then instructed to walk around to try and start labor, during 3 hours of walking I started having alot of contractions close together, I couldn't walk one circle of the hall without having to stop. I was getting tired.
4:00 PM - I laid down for a bit and got something light to eat, I was feeling horrible. All contractions stopped, so I decided it was time to walk some more, I walked for another hour but couldn't do it anymore, and the contractions weren't coming back.
5:00 PM - I was checked again, still 3cm but I was now 75% effaced, I really felt like I wasn't progressing, and I was really tired of walking. My doctor and I determined that I would be given pitocin to speed things up but he had to attend another delivery first.
8:00 PM - My nurse, started setting everything up, filled out paperwork and went over protocols, checking to see if I wanted any drugs, we decided to play it by ear, as things progressed.
9:00 PM - Pitocin was started, and almost instantly it started working I was feeling contractions, every one hurt pretty bad, but they got worse as the hour wore on.
9:45 PM - I was asking for a Demerol, so the nurse checked me I was 5cm and fully effaced, I couldn't have any drugs because I would be delivering soon, so the doctor recommended Nitrixoxide. Didn't like the hazy feeling it left me with for a few moments but it helped me through the pain.
10:00 PM - I felt alot of pressure in my vaginal region, and sure enough I was fully dialated! The doctors and nurses rushed about getting everything ready.
10:15 PM - After two good pushes, my baby girl Natalie entered the world.
Natalie Rose - Shortly after birth
Mom & Baby - Shortly after birth
Dana (DD1) & Natalie (DD2) - One day after birth

Well its all pretty simple actually! Friday was my due date, and i was gettin really anxious so at 11:00 pm DH and i ran to walmart to buy some Castor Oil. I chugged 2oz with oj and went straight to bed, Not knowing what was going to happen. I slept just fine, and about 2:30 am i woke up having to poo (tmi) really bad. I kept on reading how castor oil gave really bad gas pains and cramps but i didnt feel anything like that. So i went back to bed and within about 5 mins i started feeling pretty strong contractions. After about 5-6 of them i went down stairs to get my phone to time them. They seemed really close together. By the time i stepped down stairs i felt a Gush. Not really big... but i knew right away what it was! I was thrilled
So went and put on a pad and went to tell DH to get dressed we were going to the Hospital!!
So got to the Hospital at about 4:00 am and got admitted and my contractions were gettin stronger and about 3-4 mins apart, and i was 3 cm. I also get coupling and tripling contractions meaning i get 1, then before that one goes completely away i get another, or more. They SUCK! I did the same thing with DD.
So by about 5:30 i was in ALOT of pain!! The nurse already knew i wanted an Epi so she called the anesthesiologist and he was on the way.
Right before the anesthesiologist came in i had 8 contractions in a row... with about 5 seconds in between them! It was really intense. The nurse said its pretty rare to get that many without a break. I was recovering from that when the anesthesiologist walked in the room! I was never so relieved!!!
He put it right in and INSTANT relief... i was now in Heaven!
So i kept dilating, and the Dr came in at about 9:15. I started pushing and 15 mins later He was here. I didnt feel any pain while pushing, but really uncomfortable when the head and body came out. He had the cord wrapped around his neck, same as DD. But after that was removed he started crying right away!
I am so happy with the way everything happened, and still cant believe how well the castor oil worked!
