at the most.....10:20 the nurse came in to check me she was so calm at chit chatty as she put her gloves on
but that all change very quickly when she checked me and looked at me amazed ripped her gloves of said honey you are 7 almost 8 we need to get you in to a room now and ran to get a wheelchair .....i got 2 shots of fentanyl...and that was a big mistake a very big mistake......i was so out of it that i couldnt push very well.....they ended up using the suction to get her out......but at 1:37pm my little baby girl was born.
