I woke up at 8am to a horrible contraction a pain I hadnt really felt before..I was able to sleep but noticed I was waking up every 15 minutes. Around 12:43 I had a contraction sooo strong and felt a weird sensation near my cervix. I decided to get up and out of bed because I thought it could be my water.. and Aaron had a brandnew memory foam bed. About 3 seconds after I stand up things start happening. So my water broke at 12:45 on the 21st of June. I was sooooo excited so we head to the hospital and I am not having any contractions really.. so they decide to insert prostin to get my cervix going with some contractions.. and OMG prostin made it hurt SO bad and didnt dilate me at all!!! They checked me before the prostin and I was a fingertip.. after the prostin I was 1.5cm.
I had to come in every 4 hours for antibiotics being group b+ for strep.. so they let me labor at home and come back..offered me morphine at first and I said no. So I was in there at 5pm, 9pm, 1am, 6am.. at 6am I decided to stay. They did ANOTHER dose of prostin... and omg it hurt even more.. I was swearing through contractions in the case room but I was making out alright.
So 1pm comes around and they check me and I am now only a 3. 16 hours of labor for 3cm.
So I say gimme some friggin morphine because at this point I had not slept at all. The morphine stops my contractions COMPLETELY. So I was able to get some sleep. We decide to do oxytocin starting at 6:45 pm. They start it and its barable but definitely hurts still. Around 8pm I ask for the gas.. because the pain is coming so often and strong. I went through 3 things of the gas ahhaha omg.. and by 10pm I am screaming for the epidural. It took 3 hours for the guy to come. I was freaking out.. telling them I wanted to die.. telling them to just cut him out of me and I needed him out NOW..
So the epi guy finally makes his way there..once it kicked in I was feeling great.. was able to sleep a tiny bit here and there..4am rolls around and I can feel the contractions again.. but I am apparently not feeling them.. it's just his head moving down.
So I get the gas again for another 45 minutes until I tell the nurse that my body is bearing down and trying to push this guy out.
So she checks me and I am complete.. FINALLY. So they call my Dr and have me do some practice pushes. So after 2 hours of pushing.. and nothing happening..... we call another OB .. he comes and acesses me and says we can do a vaginal birth but we need forceps and an episiotomy.
We get going.. start waiting for a contraction which have again almost completely died away. So he gets the foreceps in and does the epis and rips him out. My epis tore and made one huge tear.
But he's here and I don't care!! He was 8lb6oz 21 inches long
I lost A LOT of blood and was very woosey for awhile and now can barely remember any of it..
He is amazing and sooo sweet only cries when he is naked or hungry!
