Contractions started at 5:45 am on 10/26. Came in and was checked at 9:27am and was 4cms and fully effaced. They mentioned epidural so today was the day. 11:17am I became 5cms. Became 8cms at 12:33p when they broke my water. The epidural only really worked on my right side. They mentioned I may have the start of scoliosis. Painful, crying, and it was effecting Amelia's heart rate.

39.1 wks, with only a few pushes she was out. She arrived at 2:51pm. She peed through all the warmers blankets and pooped some too. They said she had the cord wrapped around her or around her neck, twice. She barely cries, she's very alert and she was born face out. Apparently being on all fours was how I was made to deliver 😕😱.
My 14 yr old witnessed the birth. She said she'd not scarred...maybe traumatized lol, but all the kids love her already. Amelia's adorable. 6 lbs 10 oz 19.5 inches long. Latching some, given a breast shield to assist.

Me, I'm exhausted. The only time I have been able to sleep/nap is if I cosleep in the hospital bed which is frowned upon. Amelia already uses me as a pacifier too. I didn't tear which made me happy. Just tired. My BP had been high, but I have a good reading so hopefully we'll be able to leave the hospital this afternoon.
