Ok well here is my birth story for Wyatt. Wyatt was due on 09/29 which is my birthday BUT since I was a high risk pregnancy due to the fact that I had to take blood thinners they induced me early. I went into the hospital to get cervidil (sp?) on 09/19 and was sent home and told to return at 8 am the next day. So all through the night i had small contractions nothing painful more like period cramps and I went back to the hospital the next morning. There were sooo many babies being born at the time that they didnt have a room for me yet tho so I had to hang out in triage for about 2 hours. Finally I got a room around 10 AM and they started me on pitocin. My mom and I sat around playing card games and watching TV for a while. She kept making me laugh which makes a funny sound on the heart monitor strapped too me which made me laugh even harder and then it would lose my sons heartbeat and the nurse had to come in and find it again. After tis happening far more often then I m sure my nurse liked I layed in bed and we stopped fooling around. All this time I was contracting about every 5mins but they werent so bad. The doctor checked me at around 3 and I was 4 cm dialted. Around 6 was when the contractions started getting bad they checked me again and I was 7 cm dilated. I asked for the epidural and got it. Finally shortly after midnight I was fully dialted and could start pushings. And at 12:47 AM on September 21st my son Wyatt Raymond was born weighing in at 8lbs 9oz and 18 1/2 inches long. Short and chubby lol. Very healthy and LOUD
