My birth story for Breagha.....
Sunday July 4th, I thought my water had broken - I went to hospital to see my OB - it wasn't what I thought tho. I had alot of pressure, doctor said I was dialated to 1. So, while leaking still - I went off to my sister in law's birthday party. The pressure and pain kept getting worst, all day and night.

Monday July 5th. The pressure was so much, I kept sayin something isn't right, im going to go into labor soon..I know it..I could not get comfortable at all, all day long. I was walkin, holdin my belly and all. It was very uncomfortable!

Monday night, as I was putting my daughter (14 mos) to bed, the pressure was horrible, i couldn't even lift to put her into her bed
because it hurt so much. 9:30, I started getting pains - kinda like contractions...so I just let it go, see what happens...because I've had many pains and aches through this pregnancy.
12:30, I was sure it was full contractions now about 7-9 mins apart.
1:30 I woke DF told him i was in pain, for him to go back to sleep, but he might not be going to work tho (he gets up at 3am for work)
. By 2:30, I was ready to go crazy with the pain...so I woke him up - told him to call into work, we are going to the hospital -- after all running around, and stuff...wondering if i really should go yet...
by 430 we made it to the hospital I was dialated to 2-3.

My OB had gone on vacation that same day, I wasn't happy, as my fear was that he wouldn't be there...lol I had another OB whom i had never met.
It took her almost an hour and a half to get to the hospital paged 4 freakin times! So, she made it there around 6am 4...I couldn't get anything for pain until she arrived. It was VERY bad contractions..and very close.

I asked for epidural at 6am...Repeatedly over the next few hours I kept asking....(two girls beside me, went and got their 's done...i was still waiting!!)
So, I dilated pretty quickly...by 10:30 7-8. 11:25 the epidural came....
I was 9cm by then....I didn't need it - we were ready to start pushing...almost. He put it in...i contracted 5 times...within that short periodl.....as soon as he was done, the doctor had me pushing....at 11:30....11:41 Breagha was born... 10 mins later, they took the epidural out of my back. So, It never worked - I felt everything!! So pretty much a natural birth, after all that.... But she was worth it!!!

Breagha was born 5 weeks premature. 5lbs 14oz and 20 inches long.
They took her right from me to the NICU I wasn't able to see her or hold her until later that day. She was in an incubator, hooked up to IV and feeding tube. She could not digest food at first and her breathing was too fast.
After 2 days, she started to drink breast milk....but by then she had dropped to 5.5 oz. After 9 days in total tho, Breagha was able to come home at 5lbs 10oz Now she is 3 weeks old and weighs 6lbs 11oz. She's a GREAT little girl, she is doing wonderfullllllllll!!!!!!!!!

Sorry you didn't get your epidural in time, but at least you and baby ended up being okay! That's all that matters in the end!

Thank you so much to Typical Vampire for my awesome siggie!!
