Sunday September 11th, 2005

8:30pm - I got up and was walking to the bathroom when my skirt was all wet, so we decided that maybe my water had broke. I had a nervous break down and realized that this was finally real. I called labour and delivery and they said that if I wasnít feeling the baby move to come in.

9:15pm - We got to the Hospital, and they hooked me up to monitors, baby started moving and I was having very little contractions, not even ones I could feel. So the doctor checked to see if my water had broke, well they couldnít tell if it had or not, but they said that I did have a lot of fluid. I still have no idea what they meant by that. I was still leaking something all night long.

Monday September 12th, 2005

12:30am - They decided that because I was overdue, they would keep me and see how I was in the morning. Well I finally was able to get some sleep.

5:30am - I was starting to some bleeding, and contractions. They were able 6-8 minutes apart. They gave me something to make me sleep and for the pain.

9:00am - Doctor comes in, and does an exam. Iím not dilated or anything so he says because they donít know if it was my water or not they are going to start me on a IV drip and see if they can get labour going. I really didnít want to be induced but at that point I was already 5 days overdue.

11:00am - Starts the IV, was starting to have a lot more contractions just on my own, but the IV made them come really fast and hard.

12:00pm - I was only a finger tip dilated but was enough for the doctor to break my water so I got an epidural, which wasnít as bad as I thought it was.

2:00pm - I was 1 cm dilated and the doctor finally showed up to break my water.

4:00pm - I was just 2 cm dilated, and was in no pain got to love epidurals

6:00pm- I was 3 cm dilated and my cervix was almost thinned out

11:00pm - Things went bad, we figured I was going to be there all night, so my mom was waiting for the doctor to see how far I was and was going to head home. Well that didnít happen, I was still 3cmís and my cervix was all swollen. There was no way the baby was coming out on its own. Then the number one thing I feared came up c-section. The doctor decided my pelvis was too small and I had a huge baby, well that was news to me, my OB had never said a word to me about it being big.

Tuesday September 13th, 2005

12:00am- I was being wheeled into the OR, my mom came in with me cause I was totally freaking out, the hospital made a deal with my BF that as soon as I saw the baby they would bring out the baby and he would get to be with the baby till I came out.

12:14am - All I heard was the most beautiful cry in the world. They told me it was a boy, I had really wanted a girl but that didnít matter anymore. Because my BF was waiting to see his son they didnít do his weight right away. All the doctors and nurses wanted to know how much he weighed because he was huge. He was 9 Lbs, 5 Oz and 20Ē long.

Jayden Tyler Brett
Born: September 13th, 2005
Weight: 9 Lbs 5 Oz 20Ē Long

* I finally got out of the hospital today, its been hard the last coupe days but Iím hoping that things are going to get better, the c-section has been really hard and Iíve been have a lot of pain. Breastfeeding has been horrible, I still donít have my milk in and Jayden was losing weight fast so I decided to put him on formula too.

CONGRATULATIONS!

I had a c-section with my daughter and my milk was slow to come in too. The nurses told me that it comes in slower with a c-section than natural birth. Also if you received morphine during the surgery, that slows things down as well. My daughter lost a ton of weight and we had to supplement with formula for a couple days, but then my milk came in with a vengance and she porked up really quickly.

Congratulations again and wishing you all the best with your "little" boy!
