As some of you know I wanted to have this baby quick with my grandfather being sick. Well Friday I just wasnt feeling right I couldnt get out of bed just tired. So I was late on the fact that dh and i had an encounter to where we were basically mad at each other and I left the house in tears. I dropped DD off at the babysitter and my mom called. She asked what as wrong so i told her i was afraid to have the baby and then my grandfather die. She took off of work to spend the day with him. Well at 1est she calls and says he was doing good and i was in the clear to have the baby. I was on my way home from work I got lunch and took a long shower did my hair make up and at 3 i went to pick up dd. Well at 220 I stood up and i felt two small gushes. So dd babysitter got her neightbor to watch the kids and i was on the phone trying to get a hold of dh (we havent talekd all day). Well He meets us at the hospital and we check in.

Now the fun part. . .
THe triage room was full so I had to wait in the wiating room. No big deal I wasnt having any contractions or anything. I finally get called back at 4 and the midwife checked me said it wasnt my water it was just mucous. Um okay so she was discharging me. Well I get up and as i was putting on my pants another gush came. So I sat my happy but on the bed and the nurse came in all happy to discahrge me. I told her i just had another gush and I wanted to be checked again. So she goes back and I can hear the midwife talking about me like it is such a big deal. Well seh comes back and her words were I guess you are staying then just left.

Well I get to the room and right away they start hte pitocin and they kept uppping it. I really didnt want that but then they didnt want me to have a 17 plus hour labor. Well the contractions were coming strong but I was still only 2cm dialated. Well around 7 I get 4cm dialated and they uped the pitocin and the contractions were getting worst.

I forgot what time but I finally got an epidural. They must have did something wrong because the epidural did not work at all. around 1030 they nurse came in and checked me and I was 8 cm dialted wohoo i was so excited. Still in a lot of pain.

at 11 I felt the urge to push like i had to do num too. I called the nurse. Seh got an attitude with me and told me that she is not checking me becuase she just checked me and I am only 8cm. Well I kept having strong contractions and i resisted the urge to push. I called the nurse back at 11:13 and told her she NEEDED to check me because I felt like this baby is coming or i need to use the bathroom. She told me that i can just use the bathroom on the pad. So I finally screamed I was about to push and she checks me and "oh there is a baby" well duh i have been telling you.

at 11:13 I started pushing and at 11:16 i heard his beautiful cry. It was so painful but worth it. while they were cleaning it up i delievered the plaventa and I actually watched that.
Junior nursed like a champ i was so proud he took to it so well. We finally get to the recovery room and had a wonderful time with the staff in the mother and baby unit.

Today the took him to do his circumcision and they started it but unfortunately could not finish it. His hole is on the side poor guy. So we have a referral taht i have to call monday to activate and see a pediatric something (dont know the term) to see. However we were not allowed to be discahrged until the bleeding stopped. He has the cut and until it heals it hurts for him to urinate. He lets out this pitful cry wehn he uses the bathroom. It breaks my heart.

So unfortunately I didnt have a great experience and I am unhappy with the hospital but oh well.

I'm sorry you had some bad experience with the staff. Some people just aren't meant to be nurses. I hope your LO gets to feeling better soon. I've never heard of that happening before, do you know what they are going to do for him?

Since I just experienced going from a 7 to a 10 in one contraction I really would like to smack your nurse. I really would. I mean seriously if my nurse had pulled that on me I would have like had the baby without the doctor in the room because I would have died of pain with the contractions that I wasn't pushing in, pushing makes it better (for me @ least.)

But I'm glad you had your LO and have shared your birth story!
