Sorry it took so long I have been busy and very tired but very happy.
I had my membranes swept on thursday and then at 7:30am on friday morning I lost my mucus plug with some blood in it, by 11am I started getting small painful cx so I went and sat in the tub I kinda thought my water broke in there but wasn't sure, I kept leaking the rest of the day and cx regular and strong but not to bad so by 8pm I was sure it was my water and b/c I am GBS+ I thought we should go in, we got to L&D by 9:30pm they put me in a room and checked to see if my water had broken sure enough it had so they admitted me right away and I was in by 10:00 and I was put on meds, they didnt want to check me till my cx were 3min apart b/c my water had broken and they were still only 7mins apart so they let me labor for a tiny bit but the cx were starting to get bad so they finally checked me at 11:30 and I was 4cm(not happy about that LOL)my doc assured me b/c of how fast I had progressed last time that in an hour I would probably be pushing so they let me labor on the ball, I did for about another 45min but the cx were horrible and coming one after the other and I was feeling pressure so I asked for an epi they told me that by the time he got there I would already be pushing so it was not worth it, they checked me and I was 9cm so they got me all ready to push and I started pushing by 12:50 and I pushed 4 times and by 1am on the dot on saturday she came out, I was so happy to see her and when they handed her to me I could not belive how small she was she was a tiny 5lbs 11oz 19 inches long.
Breastfeeding has been great she lost a bit of weight and is now 5lbs 4oz but my milk came in today so I am sure she will start gaining now, the first night was hard all she wanted to do was be held and eat so I ended up sleeping on the couch with her all night but now she is so good, if left she only wakes every 3hrs(I have to wake and feed her every 2 b/c of size)and never cries and even when she does she is so quite, my girls love her so much and I am very very happy very tired lol but so happy now that I have my 4 girls.
Here are some pics I have to take some better ones tomorrow.
