december 13, 2009 i started having cramps so by 10pm they were starting to hurt so off we went to l&d i was put on the monitors and yes indeed i was in labor early labor but it was starting. i was diliated 1 cm and my contractions were 2-4 min. apart but they were only lasting 45 sec. i was giving the option to either go home and wait it out or stay and get a lil pain relief try to sleep and get reacessed in the morning, i opted to stay.
december 14, 2009 it was 7am i was checked and i was at 3 cm still only contracting 2-4 min. apart and still lasting only 45 sec. so again the o.b said i can either go home and wait it out which could be a few hours or days or he can break my water and try to get things started since i was already scheduled to get induced on the 17 i decided to get things moving. 9am he broke my water and administered a lil poticin my contraction started to last longer and coming more often and more painful. 11am i got the epidural it was inserted right had to be taking out reinserted then my contraction stopped completly after that. they started to give me some more pitocin by then the epidural started to wear off by around 4pm i was ready to push i started pushing and i pushed for 2 hours and the baby still hadn't really come down lots. it was then decided to have a c-section. during the c-section after they administered the spinal i started having a hard time breathing, they had to intubate me which mean i had to be put under and dh was asked to leave the room at 7:34pm sebastien was born weighing 8 pounds 19 inches long daddy got to hold him right away and see the first bath and all while i was in recovery. while in recovery i was giving a blood transfusion due to loss of blood and was giving a few iron shot i was in recovery for almost 4 hours but once i saw my lil bud i knew it was all worth it
