As all of you know,in the very beginning of my pregnancy i was given the due date of November 27th,i thought for sure that i would go before that,but truthfully i had no idea,i made it all the way to my 41 week appointment,and still was not even dilated a stitch so they decided to induce me that following Sunday, I went into the hospital around 7 on that Sunday night,they immediately started me on pitocin right away,and the road to getting my darling little girl was getting shorter and shorter,so i immediately started having pretty steady contractions all through the night,i hardly slept at all,actually i ended up throwing my cell phone at George's head(and got him! haha) that night because he was peacefully sleeping while i was in labor,and boy was i mad! I had gotten an epidural that day when i was about 3cms dilated,So they continued on the pitocin all through Monday and didn't dilate to 10 untill about 12:00 Monday night(i did not dilate quickly at all!),i ended up having to get another epidural because my first one had come out,and i was having the worst pain in my butt that you could imagine!! I pushed for about an hour(and i was a good pusher! ) but the baby's heart rate had started to drop,due to her head being sideways,so she couldn't even come down out of my pelvis,so thats when my doctor had said "okay enough is enough.this baby is way to big for your pelvis and there is no hope of you giving birth to her naturally.",i was sincerly bummed because i wanted to experience giving birth as much as i could and the thought of having a c-section made me feel like i was being robbed(i know it sounds corny but thats just how i felt.) I also knew that if that was the only way i could get my little girl to me safely,then thats what i was going to do,so at 1:47 am on Tuesday,i gave birth to my little girl!! unfortunately i was not awake to experience this because during the surgery i was feeling entirely too much so they doctors sedated me early against my wishes,although i was exactly 2 weeks over due and had been in labor for so long,not a minute was waited,and i would do it all over again,it was the most amazing day of my life ,it was also bittersweet for me because my grandmother and i were very very very close she died due to cancer 2 weeks before i got pregnant,my grandmother was born august 11th,she died February 11th and my daughter was born on December 11th,so i cant help but to think my grandmother had something to do with my little one coming on this particularly special day!
