Well, I went in on Tuesday night at midnight to have the cytotek put in. The first quarter tablet went in at 1:30 a.m. and the second at 5:00 a.m. My cervix was high and closed when I got there and by 5 it was a 2. They took me down to a labor and delivery room and my dr. came in to check me and I was a 5 and completely effaced. He went ahead and broke my water and I was begging for the epidural by that point. My contractions were coming right on top of each other and were sooo painful.
The anestisiologist came in and administered the epidural and I still had a lot of pain in my rear end. They upped the dose and I started to have relief. In less than 20 minutes I was feeling pressure in my rear that would not stop. The nurse checked me and I was completely dialated, effaced and the baby was at a +2 station.
The dr. came in and I pushed two times and when the baby was almost all the way out, the dr. had me reach down and pull him out and put him on my chest. It was the most incredible experience in my life and out of all three of my births.
Joshua was born at 36 weeks, 3 days and weighed in at 8 pounds and 1 ounce. He was 20 inches long and was born on Nov. 2 at 10:38 a.m. He is beautiful and loves to nurse. My milk came in today so he is a lot happier now.
They estimated his weight by sonogram last Thursday and said he was 7 pounds 9 ounces. I know they are not always right, but they were pretty much right on with his weight.
I am feeling great and only hurt when he nurses. I did have a small episiotomy but I am in no pain from it. It was a great birth to end my pregnancies with.
Okay - I think I must have missed your birth story before, because I never realized you pulled Joshua out yourself! That must have been amazing!! That really is a nice memory to end your pregnancies with, huh?
