In her own words
"I was admitted to l and d around 630pm. 4cm. Contractions about 5 mins apart. May have a baby tonight or tomorrow. Heres the scoop...Had sporadic contractions all day and lots of pink discharge. Then at our scheduled nst had a few dips so they said go home but if more than 4 contractions an hour come to l and d. Had dinner. Contractions were every 5 mins so came back and they admitted."
"It's 642 am here. Last they checked I was 4 cm and 100
percent effaced. Slow progress but progress. I got the epi around 230
am. And haven't felt any pain since. The lady in room next to me did no
epi and I heard her screaming for hours. That combined with increase in
intensity of contractions made me pull the trigger and I'm glad I did."
"George was born on 2/11/14 weight 6 lbs 11 oz at 1:11 pm we are all doing great and head over heels!!!!"
