On Tuesday Oct. 10th 2006 at 10:00am I lost my mucous plug, I was positive it was it, and from that minute I had contractions, every 20-22 minutes.. all day, At about 10:00 pm I went to L&D to get checked out because the contractions were every 12-15 mins and were getting worse... I was 2 cm and about 75% effaced... So they sent me home to get some sleep... I didnt sleep a wink .. and at about 3:00am (Oct 11th), I decided to hop in a hot bath... it helped a little bit, just relaxing really... When I got out i lost the rest of my plug and started bleeding.. like.. quite a bit... so I waited around, tried to relax... the contractions were pretty strong at this point... I had to concentrate, breath through them and relax... Finally at about 5:00am I woke DH up and told him "I really don't htink U should go to work today.. I think Im having this baby today" (He works 20 miles up into the bush... no cell phone service or anything) So, he called into work and informed his boss of the situation.. Then at about 6:30am, my mum got up to see how I was... I told her everything that had gone on ... That I hadn't slept all night, my bath at 3:00, and the rest of my plug and the bloody show.. The contractions were getting pretty intense by this time (6:30ish) and about 8 minutes apart... Finally at about 9:30am we went back, This time I was 5-6cm... I was like :| What? Are you sure? lol... (I had had no pain meds or anything) so.. they admitted me, got me in a gown etc.. and had me walk around, shower, what ever i wanted pretty much... at about 1pm I was 8-9cm ... Then at about 2:45ish pm my body started to automatically push.. I couldnt stop it... then at about 3:10 my Dr. finally got there and got me pushing... (Oh, I forgot to mention from about 1:00pm to this point I was screaming blue murder, I really thought I was guna die (no pain meds at all) My mum said I said "God-######-it-jesus-christ" as if it was one word.. about 20 times... Words you would NEVER hear come out of my mouth Conciously anyway) I pushed till about 3:15pm and then they did the episiotomy.. (DH almost passed out) I pushed more and then they wanted to use forceps to help the baby.. and I said "WHAT ARE YOU DOING??? YOUR GUNA PUT THOSE INSIDE ME? PLEASE NO.. ITS GUNA HURT.. PLEASE NO" so the dr said .. Okay Syleena, we'll give you one more try.. I Pushed my ABSOLUTE hardest (dh said i looked like i was guna blow up.. i was dark purple) and in 1 push at 3:32pm on Oct 11th (My dad's birthday) Daemon came out.. Weighing 7 lbs 12 oz's and 22 inches long.. He fell into the docs hands and started crying immediatley... I remember the Doctor saying "SLow Down Syleena!!! Stop pushing" they put him on me and i was just holding this slimy lil guy, and i jus started BAWWWWLING... He is everything + more than I could ever ask for... + I didnt have to get the forceps up me lol.. no IV's no drugs... completely natural birth I am very proud of myself..
