Eve's birth story (Skeemer) Finally! :)

Hey guys. I've been trying to post this forever but our hospital had the worst internet ever. We just came home late Saturday afternoon. But anyway, here's Eve's birth story. I'm anxious to get back in the loop, celebrate your babies with you & see some cutie pie pictures! Since we've been home it's been a whirlwind of pain medicine, spit up, little sleep & the likes. Thanks for all the love, prayers, hugs & well wishes.

The Short:

Eve Juliet was born on 07/03/14 at 7:45 am. She was 8 lbs 7 oz & 21.5 inches long. I went in to be induced but never had to be. It was a terrific delivery & we're grateful for our little rainbow. :)

The Long:

I was set to be induced at 5 am on 07/03/14. I had been having some light contractions for a couple of days but nothing with legit timing. At 3:30 am we got in the car & I drove us to the hospital like this -

image

I was experiencing some pain in my lower abdomen but didn't think much of it. It didn't really hurt but it was more annoying & uncomfortable. We arrived at the hospital & we took some last minute pictures of me being pregnant in front of the L & D sign. I thought I looked like this -

image

But I really looked like this -

image

When we got admitted to our room at 5:15 am I was handed a gown so I could change & we could get this induction show on the road. I barely got my gown on & by 5:30 am my water broke Hollywood style. DH & my mom were gawking at me like this -

image

At 5:45 am I was like -

image

By 6:00 am the contractions hit HARD & I was like -

image

My nurse called for the epidural & I said, "Already?!". She said, "We know you're having the baby today so you can go ahead with it." She asked me how dilated I had been at my appointment just 3 days ago. I told her 2.5 cen. The guy came, gave me the epidural & we waited for it to kick in so I could be like -image

But that never happened. The contractions got worse & they were confused so my nurse checked me only to discover I was dilated to 9 cen. She started telling other nurses to get my doctor on the phone to see if I could start pushing. I was like -

image

I pushed a few times & my doctor came rushing in. The nurses were throwing paper gowns/scrubs on her. I pushed a few good times & I heard my doctor say, "Look at those cute cheeks!" I was like -

image

I mean, I was flattered & all but it wasn't the time or the place!

 image

Knowing she could see Eve's chubby cheekies gave me a good rush & I was like -

image

I pushed really hard & then this happened at 7:45 am (except she was gooey & didn't come out in a blanket) -

image

I was able to hold her immediately & have skin to skin contact with her. She's perfectly healthy & perfectly wonderful. We're thanking God for this beautiful baby girl & so grateful. Thank you all again for the prayers, unicorns & love. I'm convinced some of the very best people in the world are here on the July '14 board. So bring it in y'all -

  • The Star Trek reference got me laughing :) congrats on your adorable girl, love those cheeks!

  • It's not fair that your squish is so cute and you still have such a great sense of humor.  Shouldn't you be exhausted and miserable right about now?  I'm so jealous.  Congratulations, lady!

    I was pretty out of sorts when DS was born. DH & I have been talking about how different I am emotionally & physically with DD. DS was up literally every 2-3 hours around the clock & I had NO rest. It was awful & I also suffered PPD with him.

    DD is sleeping about 5+ hours at the time which gives me time to get some sleep myself. She's just a totally different baby & we've adjusted so much better this time around. Before I had her I was so terrified I'd go through all the same things I did with DS. I'm running on little sleep still but I couldn't put DS down long enough to get a shower because he would cry & cry. I'm really grateful to be having a much better experience this time.

    I want to catch up on everyone's birth stories. I'm not sure who has & hasn't had their little pumpkins. I hope you're doing well though either way. :)

  • @mrscurlygurl Congrats! I'm jealous your DD gave you some good timing. ;) I'm just thankful she made a quick entrance. I wouldn't have wanted to do hours of labor like that.

    FIrst of all, congratulations! She is so cute!

    Second of all, this post was phenomenal. I especially loved, "Captain, I'm giving her all she's got!" and I almost wet my pants from giggling. 

    Third, her name is just perfect. So pretty and elegant!

    Skeemer
  • Congrats! She is so adorable! It looks like there were several babies making their grand entrance that day, DD also shares a bday with your LO and didn't give my epidural a chance to kick back in after it wore off.

  • My DH would say your story needs more explosions or car chases to make it interesting, but I quite enjoyed it. :)  Loved the Scotty gif, LOL.  Glad everything turned out well!

    P.S. What do you mean, they don't come out in blankets like that?  That would be so handy!
