Well I've decided to go ahead and tell you my story. better late than never!
I found out I was pregnant March 24th 2007. That whole week before I found out I felt different. I was cramping all week and thats not like me. I cramp when my pd is on. Every food I ate tasted sooo freaking good. even plain white rice tasted wonderful. I missed my pd that first day and knew I was pregnant. took my test Saturday morning and it was positive! darwin and i couldnt go back to sleep! we took a long walk and talked about our future.
I decided to get induced b/c my parents decided to come a day after her due date. so we set the date for Nov 29th on her due date. went in early that morning. got the potocin around 9:50 and started feeling the contractions. man they suck! The doc came in an hour later or so and broke my water. Thats when the contractions got worse!! I had to be 3cm to get my epidural and I couldnt wait to get it! they took me to another room I cant remember why but all i wanted was my medicine. Oh and while all this is going on I have med students there watching everything!!! They gave me the med and I felt soo much better. then around 730pm I started pushing. I pused for 2 hours and miss Jasmine didnt want to come out. I was so tired I thought I was falling asleep between pushes. Then the doc recommended that we do a C-section. So they took me in to the OR and they took the epidural and i just wanted it so bad. it hurt like hell! In the OR while they were cutting me darwin was talking to me and the next thing he knows I passed out. I dont even remember the doc bringing jas to me for me to see her. I saw her while they measured her and the only thing i can think of was OMG I have a baby! I couldnt believe it! It was surreal! it was the best feeling ever!!! she was born at 10:32pm 6lbs 13oz. she had big pink lips. Thats all you saw when you looked at her. she was beautiful! stayed in the hospital for 3 days and went home. We were so ready to leave the hospital and be in our own house!
thank you steph2007 for my gorgeous siggy!

No the doctor didnt know why she didnt give me a reason. I really thought I wasnt pushing hard enough.
My recovery sucked. I cried for the 1st week b/c of the pain. I even walked alot not knowing I shouldnt have. I thought they wanted me to walk so me and my mom went to a huge mall and walked so much it hurt. I couldnt even sleep in my bed b/c when i would get up it felt like my organs were moving all over the place. I hated the recovery and dont want to go thru that again! It's weird b/c other moms that went thru it said it was an easy recovery. everyone is different but it seem every mother I talked to they had it easy.
