Alexandria Marie arrived on September 27th at 2:32pm. She weighed
7lbs 12oz and was 21 1/2 inches long. I think she looks a lot like
Jarrod, LoL. All 3 of us are doing great. I was in labor for about
10 1/2 hours. My contractions started at 4am and were 5 minutes
apart right from the get go. Then, w/in an hour, they went to 3
minutes apart. We got me to the hospital at 7am (Jarrod had to go
check in with work and get permission to come with me to the
hospital) and they checked me at about 8am and I was only 2 cm
dialated....I was SOOOOO pissed because I was in so much pain and
didn't even dialate!! I was already 2cm dialated a week prior!
Anyways, at 10am they checked me again and I was at 6cm so they
decided to give me Staydol to help with the pain...yeah, that stuff
does absolutely nothing except make you feel drunk. Somewhere around
12 they decided that I could get my Epidural ( I was going to go
natural but because the pain came on so fast and furious I opted for
the Epi) and then they checked me about 2 minutes after I got the
epidural and I was already at 10cm fully efaced. They had me wait
till about 2pm to start pushing because they wanted her to come down
more on her own and then at 2 I started pushing....2:32pm she made
her appearance into the world with her Daddy by my side!
