Well, I was scheduled for induction on Monday July 2nd and we were really hoping to hold off until then so dh could be off the whole week due to his plant being shutdown. Sunday we went to church and I felt fine up until about 4pm and then I started having some really strong contractions. Dh wanted to take me out for a nice dinner, but I didnt really feel up to much so we went to applebees and came right back home. I really had several thoughts of calling and going in to be checked b/c the contractions were often and strong. I got NO sleep and just kept telling myself "YOU are going in the morning just hold on". Well we did make it through the night and then got to the hospital about 8:00am. The nurses did all of their assesments and hooked me up to all of the monitors , the dr came in at about 9:30 and broke my water. She started me on a really low dose of pitocin at which time I was dialated to a 4. About 11:00 the nurse checked me again and I was about a 5 and my family was all so......... impatient and thinking she should come faster than she was (ds was born within 4hrs). She had the pitocin turned up really high and I got to get the much deserved epidural that i didnt get to have with dru. IT WAS WONDERFUL!!!!!!! She checked me at around 1:15 and said you are an 8 and I felt nothing.... then right after she moved I felt a ton of pressure really low and she said well, lwt me check again.... she did and said " Oh lets call the dr we are having a baby... DONT PUSH" the dr came in and in just one light push she was born!!!!!!! Beautiful!!!! She wasnt really noisy, but seemed so content. It was wonderful. Round little head and all 7lb 8oz of her were just so perfect!!! Dh cut the cord and we just cried and were so thrilled, all we had prayed for had been answered. GOD IS GOOD!!! Thanks for letting me share.
MACY RHAE 7lb 8oz 20 in born July 2nd 1:28.
