Well Sunday night (March 18) I couldn't get comfortable when i laid down so aroud 3 i finally got tired enough that i fell asleep. At 4:30 i woke up to pee, when i sat down (sorry if tmi) a gush of water came out i didn't think anything of it cause i was half asleep so i peed and went back to bed. As soon as i laid down i felt another gush of water, so i decided to wake my mom and go into L&D. So once at the hosptial they took me to the triage room to get checked. The doctor on call confirmed that my water had broken so he admitted me. When i got to my room at about 8 my contractions got stronger they were still manageable though. At about 10:30 my contractions got really painful. I couldn't decide if i wanted to get and epidural or not, so my mom and my SO made the decsion for me which i thank them for now. So at about 12 they came in with the epidural. It felt like they took forever to come because the pain was so bad. I didn't think i would be able to sit still while they put the epidural in but all you really feel is the local they put it in and once its in and they give you the medicine it's wonderful! So I was pain free for abou 2 hrs. at about 1:50 the meds wore off and i started feeling the contractions again. That went on for an hour and then i got a redose of the medicine. But it never took at 2:02 i felt strong urges that i need to push. I pushed for what seemed like forever but it was only 2 hrs. Finally at 3:45 she decided to make her grand entrance into this world weight 5lbs 3.9oz and measuring 18 inches.
