    Default Birth Story

    I wish there were some excitement to my little man's story but everything went as smooth and "expected" as can be for birthing a baby! lol..

    Everyone is aware of the "Did my water break?" thread so I'll pick up from there.

    I called the Dr's office and based on that conversation at 10:30, decided it would be best if I went in to get checked. I told my boss that I fully expected to be back but that it was at the recommendation of the Dr's office to get things looked at.

    Once at the birthing center, they did a check and it came back positive for ruptured waters. I asked the nurse "So now what?" She said.. "We're going to have a baby today! "



    I called my mom and DH and let them both know it was baby day! By 12:30 they both had arrived and we just waited for things to start progressing on their own. My initial check I was dilated to 2 and thick - an hour later, I was a 4 and 50% effaced. That never changed until they started Pitocin.

    I decided on an epidural this time, just to be safe in the pain department - both the epi and Pit were in full swing by 3:30 pm.
    By 5 pm, I was feeling contractions get stronger.. still dilated to 4 but 90% effaced (which I'm told effacement is more important than dilation). By 5:30, they were painful. By 6pm, they were unbearable so they checked and I was ready to push!

    Bram Alexander Johnson was born at 6:12 pm on 4/10/13 weighing in at 6lbs, 12 ozs and even though officially classified as a preemie, he's absolutely perfect in every way!

    Here's a couple pictures that got captured on my phone.. we have more on the camera which I can post when I get a few more minutes.

    Aweeee! What a cutie! Thanks so much for sharing the story! Glad everything went well.

    I'm just curious as to why they gave you pitocin if things were progressing fine?
