It all started the day of 2/6/07...after many weeks of bedrest due to Toxemia my doctor decided to induce. It was a cold and glummy day...I was ready for it to be over with. Me and my mom had went to eat mexican food before I went(had been on no salt for weeks). I got there at 530 pm on the 6th and they started the cervidil (sp) about 1 to 2 hours after that I had bad cramping(was worse than the actual contractions) they lasted all night and the belly bands killed me. Somehow I made it to delivery day!!! They started the piction at 7 am and they contractions started around 9am they came on strong (mild contractions register at 6 to 10 mine were registering in the 70's To be honest they seemed like they were 30 mins apart and not 2 to 3 mins like it really was. When I reached 4cm I had my water broke...it hurt like hell. When they inserted the heart monitor into Tolans head the nurse had to change my sheets and she accidently pulled it out so it had to be put back in which means hands going back inside on top of the contractions and cramping(That was the only time I was angry through the whole process) At 7 cm I got the epi(I was so inlove with everyone in the room ) After that everything kinda was laa laa land. I do remember that I went to 9.5 and kinda stuck there and I was wanting to push. The doc came in and said I can push if I want and thats what I did..less than 30 mins Tolan was in my arms and I forgot about everything that had ever bothered me. It has been the most wonderful experience and I hope to be able to do it again
