For my birth story I will make it short..........
I went into the hopsital at 8am on Thursday to get induced. They started me on my IV antibiotic at 9 for my strep b. Then at 11:30 they started the pitcion. I was 4cm then and they were going to see how things went. I was having contrax, only they weren't really hurting me, and I could definitly talk through them. So at 4:00 I was checked and at 5cm. My m/w wanted the room set up just in case things went fast before she broke my water so they got everything set up and she broke my water at 4:45pm. At 5:00 I got up to get on the birthing ball and my contractions started to really hurt then. I stayed on the birthing ball through the contrax untill 5:30 when I decided it was time to push. I got on the table and was at 8cm, and about 2 minutes later I was complete and ready to push. I had no medication and this is when I started asking for it! It was to late at this point, so I had a few pushes that I couldn't really push at because I was in to much pain. Then I finally got control (somewhat) and pushed for 10 minutes and she was born at 5:45 pm 1 hour after my water was broke. So really I only had the one hour of pain. She swallowed some fluid on her way out and was raspy for the first night but is fine now! I stayed two nights in the hospital and my mom was here with the kids. She got here about 2 hours AFTER the baby came! It was a wonderul experience and she is WELL worth the wait! You can visit her and see pics at
She is b/f like a champ, I am really sore but didn't tear at all so that makes recovery LOTS better. My milk is starting to come in so that is making feeding better too!
Hope you enjoy!!
