We checked in May 20th, 2010 at 5:30am, checked & i.v. in by 6:30. Got my antibiotic for the Strep B & then got this party started with Pitosin. After an hour and half, Dr. Chapman came in to check me & see how I was doing. Still at a 3 almost 4cm dilated, she broke my water. She wants this baby to come!! I like this doctor. The contractions got closer together & the intensity was immense, I sat on the ball & worked through them. I like the ball, I’ve never used it before & it seemed to help for a while. About 11ish I got checked again & I was at a 6-7cm. The contractions were intense so I decided to go with the epidural. The doc came right before noon, my nursed slowed down my pitosin & the doc got my epidural in between contractions. This nurse, Donna, is my favorite & most helpful nurse I have ever had. The anesthesiologist was super fast & was very gentle. So the medicine kicked in, I could feel my legs but didn’t feel the pain. LIFE IS GOOD! So after a nap & a movie I began to feel pressure, and of course the baby has started to come. So the nurse shuts the pitosin off while they scramble to prep for the baby to come out. Dr. Chapman arrives at 2:00pm & as everything is ready to go, my contractions stopped & they are waiting for a contraction to push. The contractions started up again & I pushed for 15 minutes & baby was born at 2:18pm. YEAH!!
After the arrival, we all needed a good nap.
