I am finally posting this.....a little overdue i know...but i just love telling this story to anyone who will listen!!


I went into the hospital with my contractions about 3 minutes apart on Monday April 3, at 1:30 AM. The contractions really didn't hurt, they were just a little uncomfortable!

At that point i was kind of Freaking out because i wasn't really due for another 3 weeks so my Mom went on a business trip with my dad to Washington DC. Well i had to call her at 1:30 and tell her i was going, of course she was Freaking out, getting all of her stuff ready shower, make-up, and even curling her hair, because She was on her way right then!!

By the time i was checked and admitted it was already like 2:30 i was so exhausted but the contractions were so bothersome that i could not sleep! They gave me some neubane(sp?) to take the edge off, but i still couldn't sleep...just excited i guess!

Well my mom finally gets there around 9:30-10:00 in the Morning...and there is nothing new. I felt bad because she rushed home to have no news when she got there.

Around 12-1 O'clock they finally started me on potocin because i wasn't progressing as much as they wanted me to. The contractions still weren't bad and i was still pretty comfortable!

so around 2:00 my wonderful nurse had an emergency and had to go home, so they gave me another nurse. Well she failed to check me at all from 2-5 so by 5:30 i was 10cm and ready to go but my water had still not broken. Well i had to get up and use the restroom and as i did that i felt something just trickling down my leg. As i got back in bed my water broke everywhere and my nurse tried telling me it was "just the Gel" from my moniters. But it was all over the bed and my legs. Well she was wrong of course.

Well because she hadn't been checking me, my Dr. was never notified of my progress and was not at the hospital when i was complete. So some women comes in, dressed in the gown and everything and said "I'm here to catch your baby" Of course i was clueless because now i was in SO much pain. I pushed for a little bit and they were saying nothing was happening so i said i needed an epideral then. Thank god i did that because my night was FAR from over.

I pushed for approx. 4 hours total (not all at one time obviously) and she would come down as i pushed but go right back up when i stopped. In between she would give me like 30 minutes here and there to rest. Nothing was helping, my body was too small to do this. So at about 3 AM my Dr. told me that she couldn't let me go any longer and that i had to have a C-section.

This is when i started to freak out. I had so many emotions, i was scared, ancious, tired, irritated with the moniters on my stomach and most of all very restless...i had been in that bed for more that 24 hours already!

Well they pumped me full of so many pain meds that i was so sleepy and slept through half of my c-section but i do remember seeing her for the first time. My first question was "does she have hair?" and she didn't! LOL It was and still is the best day of my life even though it seemed never ending then i wouldn't change anything!


Thanks for listening...i know this was long!

that's good. our local hospital is always screwing up. they also recently changed their name, and joined with some other hospital or something... and i thought i heard that it had to do with avoiding lawsuits.
