Sunday

1am - I had just went to bed & never actually fell asleep because about 15 min later I was having the most painful cx. I was crying they hurt so bad. Got up to walk around & see if they got better - got worse. Were 5 min apart. . Cx started to ease up & get further apart

3:30 - go to bed thinking false alarm. Managed to drift in & out but cx would wake me up - still not bad though

6:00 - finally get out of bed since still having cx but 7-10 min apart. Called dr just to see what she says. She thinks it's early labor but go to L&D & get checked anyway. Didn't even bring hosp bag because we were sure it was false alarm

7:30 - get to L&D. Cx 1.5-2min apart/3cm/90% effaced. Going to admit me. Having a baby today

10:30 - dr checks me. Still 3cm & only 50% effaced (nurse was off) but cx still 2 min apart. She breaks my water to get things moving. Not really in any pain still

DH & I walked around but I had to get in bed every hr or so for 30 min due to the antibiotics for +GBS. They checked me somewhere around 12-1. Still 3CM but 100% effaced. At this time, I opted for some Nubaine in the IV since I had to be in bed anyway. I was mildly uncomfortable but wanted to get some rest since I didn't get any sleep that night.

4:00 - This is where it gets good! Cx more painful now but 7-10 min apart now & only 30 sec long!!!! NOOOOOOO..Still 3CM too so they gave me pitocin. HOLY CRAP!!!! Within MINUTES I was in super cx mode. 2 min apart, VERY strong & long.

4:15 - I was 8 CM!!!! Everything started happening so fast. They started running around getting all the stuff they needed to deliver a baby. Meanwhile I'm having MAJOR cx. They gave me some Nubaine to relax me in between cx but didn't want to give me too much because I would be pushing soon. DH & my mom were there & DH was GREAT!! They had a hot compress for my lower back & showed DH how to apply pressure during the cx which helped a lot. My nurse had me sit up in the bed, indian style which felt really good - better than lying down. I REALLY wanted an epi by now but it was too late & the thought of getting one now when in so much pain made me want to throw up!

4:45 - Started pushing. Pushing was actually a relief at first. I didn't curse at DH or anyone else or scream like a banshee but went through the typical emotions - especially " I can't do this, it hurts too much, etc". So, baby getting ready to crown & dr says to me"This isn't going to be a small baby"..No sh*t & not really what I wanted to hear as I'm getting ready to push the noggin out but with 2-3 more pushes he was out!

She did have to cut me a little & I had a few small tears but I felt GREAT right after & he came out SCREAMIN like crazy. At that point, I felt like I was drunk..It happened SO FAST!!!

8.4 oz, 20 (and change) length. He had low blood sugar which they sd was normal for a baby large for gestational age. So I had to give him a little formula. By 11 that night his blood sugar was fine but he was very congested & wouldn't nurse because he couldn't breathe through his nose. They sd the congestion was due to him swallowing amniotic fluid because I went from 5cm - to delivering in about an hr so baby moved really fast too. He was PERFECT!

Great story....lol one part reminds me of Caleb's birth...he was 8lbs 8 oz & I vaugley remember the doc coming in the room right before he was born & saying "this isn't going to be any 6lb baby-he's BIG.." I remember thinking between bursts of pain.(the put me on the dreaded Pitocin as well so -I hear you on the painful ctx)..that was probably the worst thing I could've heard while pushing out my baby...lol...Congratulations & He is adorable!

That pitocin is nasty stuff *shudders at the memory*. Fortunately you didn't have to have it for very long. Sounds like you did a great job. He's adorable.
