i started having contractions earlier in the day but they were so mild i just thought i had an upset stomach so i thought nothing of my pains. then when i was in my room trying to go to sleep i noticed that these pains i was haivng all day were still there and they were getting worse. so i started timing them and they were kinda sparatic at first. but i still thought they were contractions. i waited until 4:30am to call my sister to give me a ride to the hospital. when i got to the hospital they checked me to see how far i was diliated and i was only 2cm. i was already scheduled to be induced on tuesday so they called my doctor and he said they might as well admit me while i was already there. i was a week and a dya over due with her and i just wanted her out already. my contractions started getting more painful and even stronger. i wanted the epidural but i stuck it out and waited until i was 7cm which the nurses told me that i had a high tolerance to pain to wait that long. i cried when they gave me the epidural only because i was afraid it was going to hurt and that if i moved id be paralized. it wasnt that bad at all. then i no longer felt the contractions [except that feeling in your buut im sure you all can relate] kinda feels like you gotta poop! <sorry! my doctor still wasnt at the hospital yet so they prepped me for birth and the 2 nurses told me to start pushing..i pushed twice and they saw her head already! so they made me stop pushing and i had to wait for my doctor. they told me to just breathe[are they kidding???!?!] so after he got there we got ready!!! and i pushed 4 or 5 more times .. only pushed for 15minutes. i screamed once only because her shpulders were coming out and i thought that hurt the most! and i only said i couldnt do it once because lol i was out breath from pushing so hard! i was in labor for 4 hrs and 45min. <<not bad for a first timer huh? i couldnt of asked for a better labor and delievry but im glad its over with ! the next thing i know im holding my beautiful baby girl she was born on June-25-2007 at 3:38pm. she was 7lbs 4.5oz. 20"
