Friday and Saturday morning the 16th and 17th.. id wake up with really weird pains that would shoot down my legs... they wouldnt bother me that much so i'd lay back down and go to sleep...i got contractions through out the day periodically but nothing constant or too painful..
Sunday the 18th. i woke up around 6am. with some pains in my legs and lower back like before. didnt hurt too bad so i layed back down and fell asleep..
around 11am. i woke.. got some food..and started having really really bad pains in my legs and in my lower back.. it hurt SOO BAD. but no contractions!~ just pain in the legs and back! id crouch over in pain and cry.. after the pain lasting for about an hour or so.. i told BF to get in the shower WE WERE LEAVING , and if she wasnt ready to come out i was going to make them pull her out haha.
My mom and I and BF got in the car and headed towards L&D. Got there around 12 30- 1 ish cant really remember too much pain! Checked me.. and I Was 8 CM!! and 90% effaced.. so they sent me to a delivery room got an EPI and Spinal.. within 15 mins I was in NO PAIN at ALL. the EPI completely numbed me from the waist down to the point where i couldnt even move my legs!. within an Hour and half of the EPI i was fully dialated. SEeing as i was numb.. they wanted to turn down the EPI some so i could feel something so we could start pushing..well about 4 hours later.. no feeling.. turned off the EPI.. around 6 i started getting a little pain in my leg.. thats about it so i was like im ready to push i dont care. seeing as i couldnt feel anything i had no idea when to push unless i put my hand on my stomach.. or they told me to !~.
after pushing for an hour and half or so.. 724pm Madison made her appearance!~
I feel really blessed about having the labor that i did. I know the next one pry wont be that easy!!
