I was up pretty much all night on and off with diarreah and cramping on 2-2-12. I finally had my last bm around 6 am and slept until 10:30. As i sat up i felt like a little trickle in my underwear, so i got up and ran to the toilet. As soon as i sat down i heard my water leak into the toilet. I yelled to my dh that i think my water broke, but i was still 3cm and 50% effaced (just like i was at my last visit 2 days prior). Of course by the time he made it to the bathroom it wasnt leaking anymore so i decided to put a pad on and see if it was wet. I ate some cereal and sat on the couch. I told DH we should go walking b/c the pad was still dry and i wanted to see if anymore would come out. As soon as i stood up to get my shoes on i started leaking alot. He went to go get the boys from school and i finished packing our bags. We got admitted around 11:30 am and they verified that it was my water leaking. My step dad came and got our boys and my mom, sister, mother in law, and sister in law stayed at the hospital with us. I was having very irregular contx, so after about 3-4 hours of walking around the hospital and my contx not picking up they put me on pitocin. I was on pitocin until about 9:30pm when finally i felt like a rubber band snap in my cervix and the pain went from about a 3 to a 6!
Apparently it was a secondary break in my water. They checked me and i was at a 5 and 90%. They asked if i wanted the epi and i said i'll wait 10 min and see. Well after about 5 min the pain was at an 8 so i begged for the epi. While we waited for the epi she checked me again and i was a 7 with a small lip of cervix.
I got the epi and i only got relief on my left side so he came back and messed with the tube a little bit and had me lay on my side and then i had relief on my left side. Well then i realized that i wasnt getting any relief from the waist down and i was in so much pain in my bottom and vagina i was screaming. the redid the entire epi and gave me another dose too and i still got 0 relief from the pain. By this time i was crying and screaming it hurt so bad. The pain was a 10! So she checked me again and i was an 8 still with a lip of cervix, she also said the baby was at a +1 which she rarely sees unless a person was ready to push, so basically she was already half way out but they couldnt let me push b/c there was still a small lip of cervix. The urge to push kept getting stronger and stronger. The pain was unbelievable. I kept begging them to let me push and i finally got the ok when they checked again b/c i was at a 10. Then i realized i was scared to push because i knew i'd feel everything, but the urge was so strong i pushed about 3 times with the 1st contx and 2 times with the 2nd and she was out i felt the "ring of fire" the whole time. She was born at 1:16 am on 2-3 she was 5lbs 10oz, 19 inches of perfection. Her apgars were 9 and 9. The dr had my placenta out without me even realizing it. It was such a relief and the pain stopped immediately! I am so blessed. She is AMAZING. Her name is Aubriya Nichole Lee (pronounced Aw-bree-uh)

congratulations!! your kids are beautiful. sorry the epidural didn't work-- the one time i had one, it only worked on one half, so i didn't bother this time. it's ridiculous how many stories you'll find where they don't work how they should!
