so we went in at 6:30 on the 27th to begin what i thought would be a low-key induction... i was started on my pitocin at around 7:30 and i think at 8 my dr broke my water... which is a VERY gross feeling by the way and im totally glad it didnt happen in public or i would have flooded everything.....
so i just hung out in the bed having contrax and stuff untill i was at about 2.5 cm and went ahead and got my epi... that was not bad at all.. i was really scared but i felt nothing while they were doing it and i was wonderful after...
well, many many hours went by and i found out i couldnt have any real water just ice chips... that was the worst.. my mouth was so dry by the end i thought my toung was going to shrivel up and fall out...
other than that everything was going well.. just laboring away and at about 6:30 pm (with a little help ) i had dialated to a 10 so it was time to push.... i was so put of it though from not napping during my down time.. trying to socialize with everyone that came in.. that i was exhausted.. i began pushing and after the first one i knew it wasnt gonig to play out well...
i kept it up for apparently 2 hours and my dr came in after i had stopped really contracting and felt around to find out why i was getting nowhere.... as luck would have it my little girl had turned to face up and he tried and tried to turn her with nothing happening... her huge noggin was going nowhere..
my new option.. c-section... but by this time i was all for it!!! no fear left... and honestly it was a really cool experiance... and it was over so quick it almost seems unreal to me now...
so she was born at 9:02 and i was done by 10ish and she was in my room by 11 so i could really see her and visit for a few min...
all and all im glad she is here and wouldnt change it for the world.

now to figure out this new job of mother
