I went in Thursday for a nonstress test and do retake blood pressure when the doctor decided to go ahead and induce because my blood pressure kept raising. She told me to go home get done what I needed to and to be back at the hospital at 9:00pm. Went home told hubby what was going on. So he took me out for our last big lunch before baby then we came home got stuff done around the house that needed to be done. Kids came home from school and we spent some time with them before taking them to grandmas and grandpas so we could head to the hospital. After we dropped off the kids I really started to get scared. I know that this is my 4th pregnancy but I have never had to deal with them wanting to take me early cause of blood pressure being so high. I just wanted everything to be ok and for Charli to be ok and healthy. Got to the hospital and signed all the papers then they took me upstairs to my room. Got my gown on and layed in bed waiting for them to start my iv and do some extra blood work and then to insert the cervadill. Finally around 10:30pm they put in the cervadill. By this time i was so tired so I finally fell asleep around 11:00 or so. By 12:00 I started to feel contractions but was able to just breathe through them and catch some zzzzzz's in between them. Around 2:00 am they got stronger and stronger and was no longer able to sleep with them. Nurse came in and checked me and I was at a 4. Wow that was quick. So they removed the cervadill and they gave me my epidural and I was finally able to get some relief. Went back to sleep off and on until about 10 am when medicine started to wear off. They came back in to give me another dose and I was at an 8. Nurse went to call my doctor in. The doctor walked in the door about 10:30. She said let me check you and she said you are almost there. The next thing I now I had so much pressure so she checked me again and I was crowning. She couldn't believe how quick I went and just after a few pushes our precious little girl was born at 10:59 am weighing 7lbs 11oz and was 18 inches long. I fell in love with her the instant I seen her. Charli has been such a blessing to our family. She is such a great baby and I can not wait to enjoy her growing up to a women with us. I told myself after my son I done with having any more babies but I am so glad my husband asked me to have another one. It was the best thing ever. I love my whole family so much and am glad that I have been so blessed!

Can I please have a birth story just like yours???? Aside from the high blood pressure part, I'm sure that wasn't fun at all but you make the rest sound like a piece of cake!!

Charli is super cute too!
