Parker Joseph :)

Hi ladies! Sorry this took so long to get to you But heres my story Smile

Parker Joseph Bean was born 10-21-2011 at 3:55pm 20 inches long and weighed 9 lbs on the dot Smile

So tuesday night we started with the vaginal med and nothing really happened just went to sleep. wed morn we started the pit it was ok nothing to complaine about but still no change in my cervix. so that night they did 2 rounds of vaginal meds and thursday morning I was 90% and 1cm ugh so we took a break and started the vaginal meds that night and pit friday morning.... mean while my doc came down with larnegitist so she was unable to come to take care of me Sad so now its just the on call docs and no one really wanted to take the time to tell me what was going on and whats the next steps were. finally dr lee (someone i have seen when my dr was on call) came in and broke my water. that didnt hurt but the next 3 contraxctions I swore off sex vibrators and all forms of anything that might get me prego again lol. they were soooo intense they gave me iv pain meds till the epi guy could come upstairs but he couldnt get good placement with it so I had to have 3 done and a spinal..... not fun but way worth it when it did start working. dr lee came bak in to check me and I was still only 1 cm so he fiddled around for a min and broke the spot on my cervix where I had old scar tissue and before he got his hand out I was 100% and 8cm lol really I thought! So I started to push and continued for 2 hours it was so so so hard I was so tired and in so much pain, dr lee came back and checked out how I was pushing and told me that Parker was not going into the birth canal and that his heart rate was too high and so was mine. They also relised that I had an infection in my amnio fluid Sad then the words that I didnt want to hear came out YOU HAVE TO HAVE A C-SECTION!!! but because were both getting sick and there was no way I could push anymore I was ok with it. an hour later Parker was out I was in recovery and Joe was crying like a baby... Parker came out with dark brown hair lots of it and calm he has been a great baby and we couldnt have asked for anything better Smile Ill get pic up in the next couple of days Smile
