The story was at 12am on 3/3 i had contractions which i thought i was constipated & had bad cramps. I was trying to go to the bathroom but i gave up after 15 min of sitting there and was going "How this cramping hurts". I went to lay down and told DH to get my Heating pad well they were contractions!! We timed them to 6-7 min apart so DH goes "put on clothes we are heading to L&D. I called my medical group and dr on call asked me questions and said ok he is waiting for me. Soon as we got their..my water broke in the bed and then they admitted me after hooking me up to NST. Contractions hurt like nothing i expected!. The epidural i had problems with, the needles weren't long enough so i got poked 13 times holding on to my nurse and doula & crying like crazy. Finally they take a break and DH seems me crying and feels bad. They gave me...dermetol ? I think it was...to take the edge off and then tried again SUCCESS! Also i was able to give myself doses by pressing a button as well. lol. No one told me u feel pressure in your butt while she is moving down then they gave me another dose of the meds for that...oh yea epi had me throwing up 3 diff times when they laid my bed alllll the way back...such fun that was.. I went from 3 cm to 5cm to hey you can push now! started pushing at 10am. 10:42 she was here! I had a fever and was shaking so they want to make sure she is ok and she is in NICU but she came home with us 3/3/12, 10:42am. 7lbs, 6oz and 19 inches long with big feet LOL. Perfectly Healthy

Congrats Thea, she's beautiful!! Btw, I had the same rotten luck with the epi, stabbed multiple times until he finally got it right. It was awful. Well we got our beatiful babies out of it so it was worth it but still, I wanted to choke the anesthesiologist!
