July 31st I Woke up feeling like I always Felt , Sick of being pregnant, I commented on a few board threads and Then went to sleep, taking advantage cause DH and the Boys went to church.
Around 2pm they Got home... I Noticed that I had not felt baby move to much durning the day so I drank some cold juice, nothing, Then walked , drank cold water , nothing,... by then an hour had went by, So I called my MW and she said come in.
We dropped the boys off at my moms and As we were pulling in the garage I felt a slight move. Wheew, We got checked in about 4pm.
They hooked me up for a hour and said baby was looking ok but no wonderful , so I had a u/s to check fluids and her size, that was good , last test they wanted to do is to se eif they Could get her to Breath on the u/s THAT TOOK 30 min.. Omg that tech shook my belly so much , it was crazy .
After the U/S i got hooked up again they wanted to give me another hour. with in the hour baby Heart rate Droped and that was it.
Nurse came in and Said lets take a walk to your room your being induced :eek:.. It was 10pm then. i was in AHHHHHHH
They said they were going to start cervidil then Pitocin @ 8am in the morning.
but between the Cervidil arriving and getting it inserted, I started contractions on my own.
4pm I was feeling very uncomfortable I was Checked and I was 4cm.. WHATTTTTT!!
So out came the Cervidil. She waited to see what would happen , My contractions Picked up and No Pitocin was Needed. 8am I was Checked and I was 7cm... That was Awesome to me.
Still no pain meds.. i was waiting for my mom and dh to get there cause b4 she broke my water, once they got there it was 9:30am and I was 8cm.
The contractions Got worse and Worse and OMG did I say Worse, baby hear rate would not stable and i was switched from side to side , I felt like a Pancake . 11am still 8cm.
i could not understand why I was in so much pain and still 8cm.
I was then give oxygen cause baby was not having these contractions... 11;15 I could not take it any more. I BEGGED for a Epi yep I got a Epi @ 8cm...LOL
11:30am Epi was in place and more nurses was called in cause baby heart rate was all over the place. They had me in funky positions. @ 11:55 I was 9cm and she wanted me to start pushing she, said baby was not taking this any longer and she needed to come out NOW.
I never pushed so Hard in my Life.
12:01pm Candace Made Her arrival, With a Cord around her Neck and her Body. ( MW said that was the longest Cord she had ever seen):eek:
She was purple and Also had a BM , DR from All childrens was Called to check her Lungs to make she didn't swallow any. Candace was Given a Clean Bill of health.@ 12:10pm
She is doing VERY VERY good in Bfing and Love to be held, yes I sucked it up and typed this while holding her. 9 hope not to many typo's
BTW, My MW said that if I would not have gotten the Epi to get me to Dialate me more and calm me down they Had already discussed a C section and that was the next step.
I planned not to get a Epi But hey things don't go as planned all they time. I'm glad I did over the C section
they boys love her, My 2yr old he is coming around.
