The day started early at 5am. I was definatly ready I slept 5 hours the night before. I think that was the most sleep that I got for a long while. We had our bags packed and we were off. We were so excited and tired.
We got there and they started an IV right way. My Dr forgot to fax over the release to give me Patocin so we waited till about 7:30a for that to start. At 7:40a I was was checked and I was still a 1 1/2. I didn't start to feel contractions till about 8:30 and that was when my mom arrived. They weren't very strong for a little bit until about 9:30a and they started being about 10 min apart but weren't they weren't that bad. I was able to breath threw them. I also received some meds (fentanyl) at about that time as well. Wow was that some good drugs. I was soooo loopy. My mom and Brittany wrote some funny things that I said down, like I wanted to go to lunch when my Aunt Ahjenae came into town. After that I felt really good. I was checked at 10:30 and I was at a 3 and the contractions started to be about 3-5 min apart. But still they were that bad. We had a lot of fun between contractions. We laughed and I journaled. At 12:30 the nurse checked me and I was at a 4. At 12p the anesthesiologist was going into an emergency c-section so I had to get the epidural then or I would have to wait for a while so uh duh get it then. This was the one part that I was afraid of. I was pretty nervous. Let me tell you, it was so easy. Probably because my contractions were not that bad. After the epidural was in everything was so easy. I didn't feel a thing at all. They had to tell me when I was having a contraction. I was sleeping through the contractions, as you can see. The cool part was that the anesthesiologist was LDS (Bro Poulson) he did such a great job. I got a catheter
at 1:30 (the best thing ever I want one of those every day please). I was checked at 1:30 as well and I was at a 6. At 2:15 they rolled in the supplies for the delivery. I was checked at that time too and I was at a 9. I was still feeling great at this time. Just hangin out and having fun. Sleeping a little too. At 3:10 I was checked and I was at a 10. I really wanted to labor down and my nurse (Martha) was on my side on that one so I got to wait and since the epidural made me feel nothing (I could still move my legs though) I got to wait. So I was at a 10 for about and hour. Brittany was the one that was taking over my job for me so she had to go pick up the kids so my Aunt Ahjenae got to come in the room for a bit and she brought me some beautiful flowers. Also my mother in law Barbara got to come in to the room for a bit as well. At about 4:25 I started puching with the nurse. Brittany was able to make it back just in time for me to start puching. Rob was so fun during this time. haha this picture showed it. Everyone though I did so good pushing. During each contraction before I started pushing again I thought we could all take a little nap. They needed to tell me when my next contraction was. After 20 min and 12 pushes later we had a baby. She came out a little (ok a lot) blue so Rob
She got all cleaned up right away by my
favorite nurse Martha. She was a little quite and standoffish in the beggining but by the end she was great and very friendly.
You can't really see the scale for she weighed 6lbs and 9oz.
Her chest was at 10 1/2 in
She was 19 3/4 in long
After a bath and all her measurments I finally got to hold her. She was so little and so beautiful.
