6:00 Head to the hospital and start the induction process-

7:00 Start Pictocin-3cm (Dr. stretched me to 3cm and did a membrain sweep)

9:30 Epidural

10:30 Nash's water break

1:00 Epidural wore off - epi doctor was in a csection and could not come back to me

1:30 7cm

2:15 Urge to push - 10 cm - no epi still!

2:20 They rush me to the OR with about 13 med. staff standing around. I was in SO much pain. They kept talking to me, but I was tring to keep Nash from coming out. I then told them that ready or not, I am going to push.

2:31 9 pushes later Nash was born (He looked good and there was not a problem. He scored a 10 on the APGAR!)

This is where the timing gets a little blurry to me. I know that Nate was born at 2:51. So this is what happened during that time....Nates's water breaks. Pain. Dr. pushes his hand up me. Pain. Pain. Pain. 11 pushes. Nate was born. (I guess they almost had to do a c-section to get him out. His cord started to come out before he did. So Dr had to push the cord back in me with his hand, while I was pushing him out. It worked.....but hurt like h***!!!) I had a 3 degree tear and had to get stitches. He stictched me up and asked if I could feel it. I told him no...but I could. I just wanted to be DONE!

2:51 + Nate was not crying much. In his stress he swollowed a huge mouthful of fluid. He was taken upstairs for about a 1/2 so they could suction him. It was not that stressful to us....they told us he just needed a little suction. He scored an 8 on his APGAR test.

By 3:30 we all in the room....happy, healthy, and in love!

We are all doing well. (I even pooped 3 times before leaving the hospital.) Bleeding has really slowed down, and stitches are doing well. It hurts when I sit, but I am able to sit...but really slow!

My boys are INCREDIBLE!!! I am so in love!

I'm glad you got to have them vaginally! So many doctors here do automatic c sections. Post pictures soon! Can't wait to see them!
