It all began on Tuesday 11-09-05. I took my doctors advise and went home and "did the nasty" as she called it. At about 10pm I started having contractions about 5 min apart. They were not very painful but I could definately tell that they were not braxton hicks. This continued until the morning. I did not want to go the hospital yet, because I thought they would just send me home again. The next moring I went to work (since it is close to my hospital). I worked until 12 noon. Still having contractions 3-5 min apart. I went to the hospital at about 12:30, they monitered be until 6pm, I was still @ 5cm. They were gonna send me home again but hte baby became "non responsive". Meaning she had stopped moving. But I think that was because I had not ate since that morning. So they admitted me!!!!! They game me my epidural at about 9pm, though the contractions were still not very painful. So I was happy about that, because I would not feel any bad contractions. They began the pitocin and broke my water at 9:30 pm. Me, Dh and my sister had fallen asleep when they came in to check my dialation at about 12:45. The nurse couldn't even check me because the baby's head was nearly about to come out!!!!!!! AND I DIDN'T FEEL A THING. The epidural is a wonderful thing. So my doctor came in and told me it was time to push. After three pushes she was out! She weighs 5 pounds 14 ounces, 18 3/4 inches long, and healthy! Her name is Elissa Grabrielle Robinson. I will post pics as soon as I can. Thanks for the easy labor vibes.

Yeah... I'm starting to think an epi isn't such a bad idea after all! Haha....

Congratulations on your beautiful daughter!
