I never thought I would actually have my water break at work. It is 1145 am pst on 2 October right as i was about to leave for work all of a sudden i felt something leaking. I stood up and it just gushed and all i could say was no. Finally my Supervisor came around the corner and freaked I started crying. She had somone call the ambulance ran and got the superintendant then I waited for the medics to arrive. I took my nice ride to the hospital in the ambulance. I get there and my dh meets me there. They check to see if my water was ruptured and it was but i was only 2cm dialted and 75% effaced with her head at a -2 station. LONG night!! Around 8pm i was still only 2cm dialted but in a a lot of pain from the contractions the kept uppingthe piciton (splelling?). So they gave me something i forgot what it was to help me. I was knocked out. around midnight it wore off and the contractions were worst. They checked and still only 2cm so they did go ahead and give me ediudral. I slept some more. at 3 once again i was in bad pain and the edpidural was not working. they checked and making some progress 7cm dialated. So they were going to give me another dose however i was feeling the urge to push. The dr checekd me again and i was 10 cm dialted. So we get set up and they told me i would be pushing for a long time probably. about 10 minutes onto pushing the nurses went to get the dr cause it was time. Apparently they were all in shock. they came in i pushed a little more in between the pushes i kinda dosed offf until i felt the urge to push. I pushed for a total of about 30 minutes. She came out perfect. On 3 October at 0423. I had a minor stare and i feel great. CAn't sleep at all but now that i am home i am sure i will get a little more.
