She was born last Friday but here it is...
I went for my 40 week appointment last Thursday and my doctor told me to check into L & D that night for Cervadil and then induction in the morning. That night the Cervadil gave me contractions but I was able to sleep through them so I don't know how close they were together.
I woke up in the morning and I took a shower and they gave me the Pitocin. Then the real contractions started. Pitocin contractions were the most painful thing I had ever endured. After about an hour of extreme pain, they gave me the epidural. I was able to take a quick nap and then I started to feel pressure.
When the doctor came in to check on me, I told her that I was feeling pressure and she told the nurses. Then they set me up and I started to push. I got two full pushes out of the first contraction, then I heard them suction out her mouth. I gave one more big push and I hear the doctor say, "Open your eyes! Look who's here!" Then they handed me my little girl!! I pushed her out in 3 pushes that took about 4 minutes with no rips and no stitches required!!!
She's absolutely too pretty for words. My oldest daughter is completely in love and she's nursing like a champ!
