Sunday night around 12:30 I woke up feeling a little nauseated. I ended up getting sick and "wetting" on myself. I went back to sleep not thinking much about the wetness, just that it was from strain. I woke up again around 4:30 a.m. and went to the restroom, I had what I thought was diarrhea (sp?). I tried laying back down but as soon as I did more came out. I thought that maybe relaxing in a warm bath would help so I tried that but as soon as I laid down in the tub some more came out. I drove to my sister's house and told her what was going on and we decided to go to the ER. I got there and the nurse said it sounded like my water broke...when I thought it was just a severe case of diarrhea because it was, may be TMI, green-colored. Well come to find out it was my water. Sometime during the pregnancy the baby was under a little stress and had a bowel movement in my tummy so that's why it was green-colored! I was in labor for 12 hours and delivered my healthy little boy, Dakota Pearson at 4:36 p.m. weighing 5 lbs. 7 1/2 oz. and 18 in. long. The worst part about my labor was the contractions before my epidural. After I got the epidural I was just fine...couldn't feel anything from waist down. It was all-natural...no stitches or anything. My BF passed out and hit his face on the floor!! They took Dakota right away b/c he had lots of green fluid in his lungs and thought he would have to be put on oxygen. I didn't get to hold him until 2 1/2 hours later b/c they wanted to monitor him! But luckily he was never put on oxygen and his health is wonderful...wonderful little features and color and everything. He looks great!!!! And we're so happy to finally have this little guy home!!!
