Induction date set for 2/6/2012

5 days before my due date bc per ultrasound she was going to be a big girl and i had already had a 9lb baby a week early.

I had to call L&D at 5am to make sure they had a bed open! car was packed the night before and alarm was set for 4:45.. I called at 4:55 couldnt wait till 5:00 I was so nervous...they said to come on in yay I was still nervous but excited that I was having a baby today!

We got to the hospital at 5:30 and had to go to registration and then headed to 4th floor L&D checked into my room & got the IV started at 6:00a.m. ( which the nurse had trouble with it and blew the vain and i have a huge bruise on my wrist )

6:30a.m 2ml of Pitocin was started and then wait until my doctor showed up

8:30a.m doctor showed up and checked me I was 4cm but cervix was still really thick so she tried to break my water and nothing happened she said maybe it will start to come out shortly.

11:30 I was having some contractions but nothing painful at all and was told that i was already on the max drip of the Pitocin and was 5cm.. I was going crazy that nothing was happening and it was taking so long ( for me bc my other labors were only 3 & 4 hours long ) So she broke my water and lots of clear fluid which that really got things going

12:45 contractions started coming 2.5 mins apart and strong but not really painful...they were more bothering bc they wouldnt let up and were long one right after another

1:55 I was 7cm and decided to get neuban local to take the edge off so i could try and relax since they were long and coming so close together.... Kinda made me feel loopy for alittle less then an hour before it wore off

3:45ish doctor came in and checked me again and I was 8-9cm within 10mins of her checking me I felt the pressure and need to push so i told my mom and the nurse rushed in there and I was already crowning/ her head was pretty much out.

3:59p.m The doctor rushed in just in time and I gave one big push and then another small push and out came Hailey.

She had the cord wrapped around her neck which later after i had a panic found out that it wasnt really tight(which i thought she wasnt breathing bc she didnt cry ) but Kevin was told to rush and cut the cord and i looked down and she wasnt crying and looked really white to me and i thought something was wrong.. they rushed her to the warmer and guess it just took a min or so to get her crying and DH and my mom said she pinked up right away after that. Her scores were 6 & 8

weird thing the doctor showed me was my placenta had an extra loab in it which doctor said she not sure why that happened and she dont see that very often

even tho the induction took 10 hours nothing really started till 11:30 so i say labor was actually only alittle over 5 hours ( since breaking my water got things started haha )

No epi, no tears, no stitches

with my other kids I had DH, my twin sister, my mom & MIL in the room but this time around they were not going to budge and only let 3 people in the room so MIL wasnt in the room this time around ( I kinda felt bad that she wasnt able to be in there but really wasnt much i could do at that point bc it was either my MIL or my twin sister and I would pick my twin sister over anyone for anything )

date: 2/6/12
time: 3:59p.m
weight: 8lbs 13oz
length: 20 1/2 inches long

Sounds like it went smoothly. She's so cute! I'm sorry you didn't get everyone in the room this go. They told me I could have however many I wanted, but they would lie to family because I only want one. lol Ouch about the blown vein.
