    Ray and I

    My first U/S pics!!! I think I finally beleive it all!!!

    8 weeks and 4 days!!!










    Ray and I a month before Rylee was born


    To Rylee Elizabeth. Your Birth Story

    Born July 11, 2008 at 12:15 pm
    Weighed 6 lbs 14 oz and 20 inches long

    Thursday, July 10th I had a weekly doctor's appt. I was checked and told that I was 3 cm dilated and 70% effaced. Doc said that she thought I would be going into labor very soon...Little did she know that just 6 hours later I would start to have my first real contractions.

    At around 8:30 pm I began to notice that my BH contractions were changing a bit. I also noticed that they were happening more often. I wasn't timing them, just noticing the difference and time they started. By 10:00 pm I was getting a little anxious. The contractions were consistently 5 minutes apart, but not really strong. I went to the rest room and noticed I had some bloody show. This got me really awake and I decided I'd stay up for a bit longer to see what would happen. I told Ray to go to sleep because if this wasn't the real thing, I didn't want him exhausted for work the next day.

    Well, around 11:30 and timing my contractions, they were around 4 minutes apart. I decided to call my doctor and see what he thought. He told me to come in and get checked out. I would be monitored for about an hour and then decide if I should be admitted. I wake Ray up and we head to the hospital. I checked in at 12:30 am and at 1:30 am I was admitted to Labor and Delivery. I was assigned an AWSOME nurse and we made it until 4:00 am with no meds. At this point I knew I wasn't going to have my baby until morning and I was getting exhausted. I reluctantly asked for an epidural to help me sleep and prepare for the arrival of my little girl.

    At 8:30 am on July 11th I was checked and found I was fully dilated and 100% effaced. I would start pushing at 9:00 am. I was SO excited!!! I knew the end was close and that I had the control now. I began to push and put all my power behind each one. The doc came in every now and then to check on me. They broke my water to help speed things up and that's when they first noticed that Rylee was 'sunny side up'. The doctor tried to manually rotate her. I then tried to push on my right side. Then I would turn and push on my left side. My contractions were slowing down so I agreed to a dose of pitocin to help me along. At this point I still had no idea I could not deliver this child on my own.

    It was after 2.5 hours of pushing that I find that Rylee had rotated herself again and that she was not able to get her head passed my pelvis. My doctor said that I had two options. 1) Continue pushing for another half hour and see if any progress is made or 2) Opt for a c-section and get this child out. I began to cry immediately. I had never thought a c-section would be necessary for me. Ray and I discussed behind closed doors and he knew I was scared to do a c-section. I wanted to keep trying. When we told this to the doc, she said she had said that to try to make me feel better, but more pushing just wasn't an option. Rylee's heart rate had increased and she felt that my child may be in danger if we didn't get her out right now. Ray and I finally consented to the c-section...what choice did we have?

    At 12:00 pm I got wheeled into the OR shaking with fear. I suppose it was a typical c-section. I was opened up and my baby was born at 12:15 pm. She was whisked away immediately and checked out. Her Apgar scores were 1 and 9. Ray got to be with her through all her tests and cleanings. I didn't get the chance to see my little girl until about 20 minutes after she was born. I kept staring at the door waiting to get a glimpse of my child, but I was left with nothing for quite a while. I got to touch her cheek as Ray showed her to me for 2 seconds, and then they were taken away again. I was left all alone on that table with tears of happiness streaming from my eyes. I some how fell asleep while I was being put together and sewn up. I woke up as I was being taken out of the OR. I was still shaking, but this time with anticipation of seeing my child. She was still in the isolate when I got into my recovery room, so I still had not gotten a good look at my little girl. FINALLY after 5 minutes they brought my little bug to me. She was beautiful and perfect in every way.

    I found out afterward that I was pushing so hard that I tore my uterus. They said I was an excellent pusher, I but my pelvis was just too narrow for her head. With this knowledge, I know I will never have the option of a VBAC. I am coming to terms with this, but I think it will still be hard should Ray and I decide to expand our family beyond the perfect number of 3.
