I have been worn out and tired to say the least but I'm ok. Loving Motherhood!!! Let's see where to begin...but also keeping it short.

My labor pains started Sunday 9/25/05 the contractions were coming on but theywerent regular, so I called my docs office they told me to drink water and get off my feet pronto and I was at my moms house. We got home and
Corey began timing the contractions because once they get between 5-7 mins
apart we are to head to the hospital. Well...they didnt quite regulate out
this much but I was in labor is what the doc told me. Just a matter of when to go...

Well Monday 9/26/05 what does Toya do...rolls into work, well I thought
it would all subside hey who knew I mean I wasnt due for another 4 weeks. So i
got to work and ladies and gentlemen let me tell ya the contractions started
coming like no ones business so I called the doc from work and told her
I had been timing they and they were about 5-6 mins apart and she said leave
and get to the hospital. So my mom left work and came across the street and
picked me up and we headed to the hospital (oh yes and I did call Corey after I
talked to the doc so he met us there), so I get to the hospital and they
had all my info and got me in a birthing suite to check me out to see if I'd
dialated, well the answer is NO i was still at a "1" but the contractions
were right on so they kept me overnight thinking things would progress.

Well the next morning 9/27 they checked and still nothing I was
still sitting at a "1" contractions and all, they did give me something in
my IV the night before to help and I think that slowed the process down.
Anyways they sent me home...

So they said if the contractions come between 2-3 mins come back. Well I went
through the day in bed not feeling hot and the night was the worst the
contractions were coming closer together and with a vengence Hailey was ready to come and be with her Mommy!! So I was nice I let Corey sleep through the night and that morning I called the doc told her what was going and and she said get back to the hospital!!

So we got there and the same nurse that sent me home was there, she said
"oh wow back so soon I hope I dont have to send you back home again" I looked at her like im not leaving even if I have to hang out in the waiting room dog gone
it we live 15-20 mins away and gas isnt cheap!! Anyways so she checked me
and Tada!! I was dialted to a "3" and they admitted me.

Well to shorten this I only got up to a 6 and my water still hadnt broke, and
I had every pain medication available, thank goodness for epidurals although
I was in labor so long that even started wearing off.

So day 5, 9/29/05 at about 10am the doc came in and broke my water and
"Whoosh" is all ill say concerning that!! At this point things started to get active
the water releasing and they started me on this stuff that makes your contractions
stronger and close together so with the combintaion of that we were moving, so I
slowly climbed up and about 3:55 or so I was at a "10" and ready to push "Hallejuiah, Praise Jesus and the gates of heaven
opened up to have mercy on me!"

So 12 bags of fluid, 8 bags of antiobiotics, 4 bags of epidural medice, 2 more special shots by the anasthesioligist, and 4 bags of pitocin later...

I began pushing about 4:10pm and Hailey was here at 4:38pm!! It was a miracle
she came out crying and they gave her right to me and she opened her eyes and
looked at me and stopped. (yeah I cried, my baby I thought, I did it, long time
but I'd do it again! My precious daughter, yeah at this point I was one with Hailey
and tuned into her no one else) then they took her to get cleaned up and Corey went over just as happy as ever!! It was beautiful!!

And I was exhausted and nauseous I hadn't eaten since Monday, except for
freakin Ice Chips!! So I ate and slept and it felt good!! I was much better
the next day! But after all that I was still so excited ad filled with joy.
This lil angel God has blessed us with!! We are so lucky!! Thank You Jesus is all
we can say!!

Hailey was born 6lbs 8.5oz and 19.5 inches long (hard to believe she was 4 weeks early huh? I know my mom thinks they miss calculated.
