I was scheduled to be induced Monday morning at 5:30 a.m. on October 22nd.

We got to the hospital at 5:40 a.m. when they sent me directly to my labor
and delivery room and I got into my hospital gown, and they hooked me up
to an IV with only fluids.

At 7:10 a.m. they started Pitocin in my IV. My cervix was checked at
this time and I was 3 cm. At 10:00 I was given my epidural.
About 10:30 when I was still feeling cramping and pain and able to
move my legs, I started getting concerned. I told my nurse
I was having quite a bit of pressure and pain so she checked me
and said I was at 5 cm. She assured me it was okay to feel pressure
and some pain because the baby was so low (even though I knew
with my previous pregnancies I felt NOTHING until time to push, nor
could I move my legs.)

SO, I was pretty worried I was going to feel everything. Finally, at
about 10:50 my nurse brought back in the anesthesiologist who
gave me another shot into my epidural to help numb up the pain some.
At this point, I was in HORRIBLE pain and asked her to check me again.
After getting the shot into my epidurals catheter the nurse checked me
and said I was completely dialated and the babies head was right there.

She rushed out and called my OB and came back in. By this time, the new
epidural was starting to work because I could pick up my legs anymore.
(THANK goodness, whew) She had me do 2 small pushes then told me to
quit because the baby was crowning and we had to wait on my doctor
to get there from his office.

He comes in fussing at me because he told me to wait until 12:00 (his lunch
break lol) and I pushed two more times and out Miss Baleigh was at
11:23 a.m weighing 8lbs 7oz and 21 inches long. (Exact same weight as
her big brother!)

She's absolutely beautiful and gave me a short (but quite painful lol) labor.
She's the LOVE of my life and I'm so thankful she made it here safely
and healthy with the exception of a few breathing problems.

Thank you God, for my beautiful little girl!

~Hoping for a Baby Boy!~
