Well on thursday sept 8 i had my regular dr's appt which was good except that i had high bp during that appt. So my dr sent me over to the hospital which was right next to his office. For a nst test, blood work & a ultrasound. Everything turned out ok. So they sent me home after about 2hrs. but my dr ordered me to come back on sat for another nst test so i had a appt at 11:00 sat morn.
Well sat sept 10 came i got up at 8:00am i started to have contractions nothing to bad. I did laundry & sat down and was watching fantasia. My husband got up at 9:30am i told him i was having contractions. He asked how far apart which i didn't know cause i wasn't keeping track. So he started to track them they were coming four and half minutes apart. So he calls the dr's the dr on call tells him i need to come in to l&d. Well before we went i had him go to dunkins around the corner from our house to get dd hashbrowns while i was in the shower. When he got back i just got out of the shower. My contractions were getting worse. So we headed to the the hospital which is only 5-10min away from the house. when we got to the hospital my contractions were coming 2-3minutes apart and lasting a minute. We got to the hospital around 10:30am. They got me registered & started to give me the iv fluids & getting my blood drawn. So i could get my epidural. after about 3 hours i finally got my epidural. When they checked me at that point i was at 6cm. I could this feel my contractions but were not as bad as they were when i first came in. I didn't need the pitocin cause the epidural didn't stop my contractions. So then around 3:30 they checked me again and i was 9 1/2cm they said i had a lip on my side still so they turned me on my side. Then around 4:00 checked me again i still had the lip and the baby hadn't dropped yet. They turned me back on my side and my water broke. Then around 4:25pm they checked me again and i was fully dilated and the baby dropped. Then the dr came in & got the bed ready & he had me starting pushing during contractions. Then at 4:43pm Sept 10, 2011 my little angel made her appearance into this world weighing 5lbs 13oz 19inches. She is such a peanut. She is wearing preemie diapers still cause newborn are too big on her & newborn clothes float on her.

it was an easy labor and delivery but it was a hard pregnancy with the gd, bells palsy & then the high bp. My first dd was a easy pregnancy and hard birth.
