I went to my 41 week appointment on Tuesday the 3rd. I was 3cm and they went a head a scheduled an induction for the next morning. I didn't really want to be induced but at that point I was ready to not be pregnant anymore.
That night DH and I took Ben to my parent's house so we wouldn't have to wake him in the morning. We got ready to leave there and just as we were walking out the door my water broke! I was so happy!
We went home because I didn't have any contractions right away. We took care of a few things and I showered. Contractions started and were 6 minutes apart. The Dr said to head in and by the time we were on our way they were 3 minutes apart. We got the hospital a little after midnight.
They got us all settled in and hooked up to the monitors. I was 4 cm then. After a while I went a head and go the epidural. My contractions were almost non stop just like it happened with DS. After the epi was in I felt great. I even dozed off for a bit. Around 4:15 they checked me and I was 7 cm. We called my mom and told her to head in. Just about 4:40 I started feeling more pain and pressure so the nurse checked again. I was complete. I had gone from 7 to 10 in about half an hour! They got everything ready and I began to push. A little less than 20 minutes of pushing and she was out.
Everyone was completely shocked that she was so big! I thought she'd be around 8 1/2 lbs but she was 9lbs 12oz! Then the nurses were shocked that I pushed her out so fast with her being so big. My nurse told me I was her hero!
She is beautiful and I'm so happy to have my baby girl. DS hasn't been able to meet her yet because the hospital won't let anyone under 18 in to visit because of the swine flu.
