    BFP: Father's Day, 2007 (June 17)!! What a surprise for DH!!
    EDD: Leap Day, 2/29/2008

    Josie's birth story

    March 5th: We had our 40+ week appt, and decided to schedule an induction for Friday, March 7th. I was dilated to a 4 externally (2 internally), but my cervix was still super posterior, so the doc thought we'd need pitocin to get things opened up a bit more. I was disappointed in this news as I'd hopped they'd just break my water & let me go on my own. But, eventually I got over it as I was pretty tired of being PG at that point.

    That night, DS Ray continues his nighttime fits of not going to sleep. He is screaming almost all night on & off, and I get absolutely no sleep. I cried most of the night just trying to get my head around dealing with a toddler & a newborn all at the same time. I'm starting to think we were crazy for having a second baby!

    March 6th: Happy Birthday To Me!! I actually head into the office for a short while to clean up some last minute files, and then meet DH for a nice lunch. That evening, DS is still sick and is now throwing up all over. That means no daycare for him the next we have a problem with our scheduled induction. After much debate, DH & I decide at about 9:30PM to cancel our induction. The baby is fine, and we just need to take care of DS and get him healthy first. We call the doc & cancel everything. The doc asks us to call the office in the AM to reschedule.

    March 7th: I call the doc office to reschedule my induction. They let me know that I need to schedule an appt for that day because I was 41 weeks - they just want to make sure baby is still doing fine. I suspected that I'd started leaking fluid at about 4am, so I was happy to be going in, but of course we still have the issue of a really sick toddler. My parents can watch him for awhile, but they have a doc appt of their own that they cannot move.

    After 3x back-and-forth with the doc, we get our appt scheduled for 12:45pm. I jump in the shower since my mom had stayed overnight to watch DS. My dad stops by at 9:30am to pick up my mom for her doc appt, when I suddenly have no doubt that I'm leaking fluid - and it is meconium stained. I asked DH to come upstairs & let him know that we'd be going to the hospital. My mom and dad quickly bundle up DS and take him with them to their appt. DH & I start to scramble to head to the hospital...we totally left all of our preparations undone since we'd cancelled our induction!!

    We get to the hospital around 11:30am, they admitted us & checked for amniotic fluid. It came back negative, but the nurse & I both agree that I am definitely leaking & it is meconium stained (which can alter the test results). I'm already dilated to 5 (interior and exterior) and my cervix has FINALLY moved anterior. The doctor breaks what is left of my water (not much at all) at 12:30pm, and they start a pitocin drip at 12:45pm since I'd not been having any strong contractions that day.

    I decided to wait on pain meds to see how I would tolerate labor (I never experienced this with DS). I was holding up great until I moved into transition. I was shocked how quickly I went from "I'm fine" to "OMG...get me some pain meds NOW!" . DH called the nurse ASAP, and we were lucky that the anesthesiologist was right there on his way to another call. If we'd have waited 1 more contraction, I'd have been SOL on pain meds because Josie was comin' like a freight train. The second the epidural was in place, the room flooded with hospital staff b/c of the meconium staining, and they prepped me to push. I'm guessing that I was already at a 9 when I actually got the epi...makes me wonder if I could have gone the distance. Once it took affect, my blood pressure plummeted (which we told them would happen) so they gave me a really high dose of ephedrine to keep me awake and to protect Baby Jo.

    I started pushing around 3pm, and Josie was born at 3:08pm. I pushed her out in about 4 contractions, which was AWESOME. All-in-all, my entire L&D experience was only 2.5 hours! Such a difference from the overnight stay & 11 hour L&D experience I'd had with DS (including 1.5 hours of pushing!). The epi was awesome this time. I could still move my legs/toes, and could feel the pressure to push so that I was being effective. It was fast and beautiful...and our little girl came on her own, which is what I wanted all along.
