I noticed that it wasn't quite done, so I put it in the microwave. It exploded, and did so with such a force that it blew the microwave door open. Michael said that this was a sign that we were going to have an explosive birth and he was right. After cleaning up the egg mess, we made it to the hospital at little after 7:30 a.m. We checked in and our labor nurse, Mary, showed us to our room. She hooked me up to the monitors, and I was having contractions every five minutes on my own already. She started the IV and got the fluids going. It wasn't long until she started the pitocin. I stayed in bed until noon when she let me get up and walk around. The contractions had just started getting a little bit painful about a half-hour before that. The walk was nice, but I had to stop with every contraction. When I had to get back into bed around 12:30 p.m. the contractions were getting intense. She checked me, and I was at 5 cm. dilated. My water broke on it's own around 12:45 p.m. When it did, I thought, there's no turning back now. The resident checked me again, and I was 9 cm. The contractions were really bad then, and I started screaming. The nurse said that I really should get some pain medication, so I agreed to the nubain around 1:20 p.m. It worked instantly. A few minutes later my doctor, Dr. Votel, finally arrived, and I started pushing. I was really confused at first, but once I got the hang of it, it went really well. When the baby was crowning, they had me touch his head and that gave me the motivation to give that one final push. Aaron Xing was born at 1:58 p.m. weighing in at 8 lb. 8 oz., 22 inches long. Apgars 9 and 9.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!
