On Monday 2-11 i went to my first dr. apointment of the week to look and my fluid and have a non stress test done. well they did the test first and it showed that i was having contractions on my own even thow i had no clue lol. they checked my cervex and i was already at 1cm. They then had me do a fluid check u/s like everytime i go in. the fluid was a about 1/2 of what it was the thurday before. the midwife there called my dr to see if they wanted me to go home and stay on bed rest another few days or tell me to go to L&D.

The dr said i should go to L&D to be monitered longer since my bp was 130/106 (it was like this for a week even on meds) and since i was having contractions some what. I got to L&D and they took me stright to a birthing room and not a monitering room. so that was que #1 that they were gonna let me have my baby. cue #2 was all the pokin and feeling me up lol and all the test they did and since i have had a baby before it all started to click in place.

The Dr came in and told me that the sow is gonna start tomorrow but that they were gonna start with a cervidex since i was still a little hard. The nurse came in and put it in for worning me that this may start contractions etc. Well i had one heck of a night with those contractions and got only 2 hours of sleep.

They came into my room at 6am Tuesday Feb 13th to remove the cervidex and let me shower before they did the iv and all that. so i was still having contractions on my own and didnt want to get out of the shower since it felt soooooooo good. at 7am i was dressed and back in bed ready to get things going. The midwife came in about 7:30am to bust my water to see if that would send me in to full labor on my own. it didnt so at about 8-8:30 they ived me and then started the indusing meds. at about 9-9:30 my "best friend" walked in with the best drugs i ever dreamed of lol. the guy who did my epidurle (srry cant spell it) was great. the contractions hurt a lot more then my back did so it went by fast even tho i waitted till the last moment to sign my name to let him do it lol.

At about 10am my mom walked in the room and i was soooo happy since we had the blizzard going on and she was driving an normal hour diver to come be with me. she made it and my daughter was soooooo happy to see her. so my mom my hubby and my 2 year old daughter spent the day with me.

the nurse came in again at about 2pm to check me and i was at 5cm. she was hopin i would have the baby by 3 since she wanted to go home cause she already worked a dubble cause of the storm and people not being able to make it in. i told her i would try my best but no garentee.

At 2:55 about i rung for the nurse cause it was time and this baby wasn't stopin for no one. it took a cna 5 mins to finnally come and see what i needed. i yelled, "THE NURSE!!!! NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!" i never saw a women run so fast in my life. my nurse came in and checked me again thinkin im nuts lol and her eyes went real wide and told us the baby was right there and told me to hold her as best i can lol, so i kept my letgs together so i didnt push. my mom took my daughter in the waitting room so that my hubby could be with me.

the dr was there and we were already to go at 3:09pm about. a contraction hit and one push and Athena Rose was born. She was 5 lbs 12 oz 18.5 inches long.
I got one stich below my #####. the first thing i asked was will it still feel after this. he told me ya and not to worrie. im still worried and my recovery has been a brezze so far. little pain little cramping now but the first 24 hours i was having kidnay pain on my right, was having it the last 2 weeks of pregnancy.

She is so sweet and tiny. i love my baby girl and my daughters are my life and i still want 2 more jkids. boys this time lol.
