stella decided she wanted to come 3 weeks early! we welcomed her on 11/16/10 at 9:38pm. she weighed 7lbs 9oz and was 20.5 inches long. she was born with very dark hair on her head and body she is such a cutie!
i had an appt with my OB on monday afternoon for my NS test and regular check up. my BP was very elevated and she decided to check me to see how progressed i was. i was 2-3 cm dilated. she decided to send me to triage to be evaluated. went to triage and my BP was very elevated and i was starting to contract. they decided to keep me overnight for observation and by morning my doc came in and saw that my BP was still VERY high and she said we were inducing. so by 10-1030 they had me going with all sorts of stuff. epidural, pitocin, magnesium sulfate, fluids. well my epidural wasnt working and they ended up redoing it and it still wasnt working. so it was pretty much a natural labor and delivery! and it was horrible! the magnesium made me feel horrible as well. like i had a major hangover. i was throwing up and sooo HOT. at one point my doctor had offered me a c section and i almost accepted. but my sister got in my face and reminded i could do it and we were almost there. so i held on and a little after 9 they checked me and i was complete. i started to push and pushed for 18 minutes and she was here! my first push, they could see her head she was apparently ready to come. i had to get an episiotomy so im def feeling the after effects of that! and my back has been in horrible agony from the epidurals. but almost a week later, im starting to feel like a human again and i just love my little girl so much i cant even describe it. sorry it took me so long to post this update. i was in a serious fog for days after! i just tried to post a pic but my computer is being stupid, ill try another post with a pic!
