Sorry ladies it has taken me so long to write but it has been a little crazy around here lol

So on wensday night I noticed that I was leaking again and having contraction's but nothing big. I called my OB to see what he wanted me to do and he wanted me to go in and get checked. So I went in on wensday night and they hooked me up to the NST for a few hours and monitored everything. I was having contraction's every 5-7 mins so they kept me because of the distance.

Thursday Morning my OB came in to check on me and noticed that my contraction's had started coming every 4-5 mins so he did a cervical check and sure enough I was 2 cm and he decided that my water needed to be completely broke because Ryan's heart rate was all over the place. So at 7:45 am he broke my water, and about 5 mins later my contraction's stopped completely!!!!!!!! So they had me up and walking and that didn't work, at 12 they checked my cervix again and I was only a 3 so they started me on the pit drip at 1 pm, I took almost a full bag of it before my contraction's started.

Then at 2:30 my contraction's started back up, they started at 3-4 mins apart and from there went to 1-2 mins within a half hour! When they checked me at 2:45 I was only 5-6 so I had to keep going, I asked them for an Epidural but guess what!!!!! by the time I could have it I went from 6 to 9 cm so I had to go all natural and I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO happy I did!!!!!

At 3:45 pm they checked me and I was a solid 9 cm BUT there was still a bit of a sac of water in front of the baby's head that was stopping him from coming, so the OB broke the rest and I went to a 10 right away, so I started pushing right away, I started pushing at 3:50 and Ryan was born at 4:00 on the dot lol. I had NO stitches at all and felt amazing when he finaly got here. The only problem is that I could not breast feed him right away because he is full of mucus and they wanted him to clear all of that first before starting him on breast feeding, so for the first 2 days he has been on a bottle and today we started trying to breast feed but now it is not really working because he does not want to latch on because it is more work that way for him. So I am still working with him, I am not going to give up unless I have to.

He was 6 lbs 3 oz, 19 1/2 inch long and he is right tiny! I will post a few pic's in a little while as he is just getting up now for a feed and it takes a while to feed him.

Thank you to Mistyx6 for my siggy!

Congrats! I'm excited to hear that you are happy about doing it naturally! I'm confused as to why the docs wouldn't let you BF because of mucus, but a bottle was okay? Or are the bottles just because he wouldn't latch after having to wait so long or what? I hope he gets the hang of BFing for you!
