Well Saturday morning(6/30) at around 10am I thought I had "peed" my underwear! Changed and put a panty liner on and again "peed" myself! I decided to sit on a pillowcase(was the closet thing i had clean) and I would leak a little here and there. I totally thought that baby was on my bladder and that it wasnt my water. Of course I had it in the back of my mind. But with no contraxs or anything I just wasnt sure. Finally around 130pm I got kicked off the toliet by DS who had to go potty and I leaked on the floor and I could see it was clear!! I told DH we better go in and check! His mom came over and watched the kids.
I went in and the nurse at first was like "it could be semen" I was like oh yeah cause my DH has THAT much in him!!! Anyways she did a test but had me lay on my side first to "build up the fluid" and when I turned over a huge amount came out so she really didnt need to do the test but did it anywas since he was only 36 weeks and considered a preemie!!! Anyways no contraxs so they started pitocin and OMG it was horriable!!! At first it didnt do much but they raise the amount every 30 mins. I was 1 cm when I got there and it took me 3 hours to get to 2. I was so bummed but was dealing with the pain even though the pitocin was making them worse then what they really would be. Then I get checked an hour later and I was 3cm so they where like oh good progress, but to me it still seemed slow. I opt to get some nuban even though the contraxs where getting really strong!! They check me again about 20 mins after checking me when I was 3 and I was 5. The contraxs where getting so bad but there was nothing I could do. within 30 mins I was fully dialated and ready to push. I pushed 5 times and he was out!!!! I tore a little and got like 2 stitches. Seriously that was the most hardest and most extreme birth I have had!!! The whole going from 3 to fully dialted in like 45 mins was just awful and I was seriously screaming!!!
So Lucas David was born at 9:09pm on June 30th, he was 20 inches long and 7 lbs even!!! Lucas had jaundice and had to be on a phototherapy bed!
