Things couldn't have gone smoother!

So Thursday night we went in to the hospital and I got checked in at 8:00. Once I got all settled (in a kick-***** room w/jacuzzi) they put in the cervidil, probably around 9:30 or so. I had mild contractions all night, but I didn't hardly feel them at all. I also decided to take an Ambien so I could rest. Around 5:30 a.m. the nurse came in and took out the cervidil, and I got up and brushed my teeth and that kind of thing. Then she started the pit at 6:30, on a really low setting, just to get things going, and then around 7:30 my doctor came by to break my water. OMG lemme tell you - it just gushed out all over the place. When I was at my u/s last week, the tech told me there was a lot of fluid. Well holy crap - I couldn't hardly do a thing without it gushing. So after that, the contractions picked way up. I breathed through them for a while, but at about 9:30 or so, I couldn't handle them anymore. At this point I was dialated to around 4 cm. The epidural was awesome! I don't think I could have handled it without it. I dozed in and out at this point - I was so relaxed!!!!! This is probably why I progressed from a 4 to a 9 in about 3 hours! I had to get in a couple different positions because there was a little cervix left on one side. At about 2:30 I was a 10!!!! I pushed while the nurse did perineal massage. The epi was great because I could still feel the pressure, but not a lot of pain. Things went a bit fuzzy at this point - I threw up a couple of times, and the pressure I started to feel was killing me. But at least I could feel to push. FINALLY, after a small episiotomy, and an hour and 20 minutes of pushing, Emily Marie was born! It was such an amazing feeling - I couldn't have asked for a better birth experience!

She nurses amazingly well - and is SOOOOO well behaved - she hardly ever cries - only if she needs a diaper change or wants to eat.
