Ok ladies, sorry it took so long but its been crazy hectic!!! So here it is!
I was having contractions that were irregular starting on the 11th... but they eventually went away after I layed down for a while. On the 12th they started coming every 5-10 mins and I decided to walk a little bit. After I jogged down the driveway once they were getting stronger and were about every5 mins so my mom and I hurried and went to wal mart for some small things that we put off till the last min... at wal mart they were getting more intense and we hurried out of there to bring Ashton to Papa's and drive to the hospital. Once at the hospital they eventually were at the 100 line but bc I was almost 36 weeks they wanted to try to stop it. After giving me 4 bags of fluid they were only getting stronger so they decided to give me some type of shot to try to stop them. Well, right after the nurse left my water broke so that was that! I was 2.5 when my water broke and at 4 about an hour later when they gave me my epi. I told them how last time it took me only an hour after my water broke to get to ten but they were being hardheaded and said it would be atleast 5 hours so they didn't call the dr. well an hour later the nurse came in and asked if I felt pressure... which I was! she checked and I was at 9 and they still said they wouldn't call the Dr. until I got to ten and gave a practice push. Well, 5 mins later I felt extreme pressure and it felt like something was slipping out so my mom and df looked and saw his head! They nurse came back and checked and said to give a practice push which she immed stopped and then called the dr. She then preceded to tell me to keep my legs together to prevent him from being born... Once the Dr. got there I pushed 1 time not hard at all and he was born at 3 27 weighing in at 6 10 and 19 inches!!! they placed him right on my tummy and checked him out and he was perfect and breathing great so he wasn't going to have to go to the nicu. Well, his bs was a little low so we had to feed him a bottle and while he was drinking I noticed him turning purple so they hurried him away to the nicu... it ends up that he had to learn to eat and breathe at the same time which took 2 days... df had a seizure at the hospital the day after he was born and it was a really hard timme for me. I ended up having to go home before him and they kept him 8 days for observation total.... but now hes home and healthy as a horse!!!!
