My birth story

My due date was January 7th. On the 2nd of jan i was told i needed to do a 24hr urine test because i had too much protien in my urine so thats what i did. On the 5th i went to the doct for my regular once a week  check up and i was told that my protein levels came back even higher that the first test,i had preeclampsia so i was told to go straight to the hospital to be induced.I arrived at the hospital at 5:45pm and the nurse took me straight to my room and immediatly started me on pitocin and mag because i also had high blood pressure.I had already dialated 2cm 2weeks before so i was hoping that i would dialate quickly. 9 hours past and nothing happened i didnt dialate,i hadnt even had a contraction yet. The nurse put me on the highest dose of pitocin and still nothing.Finally 4:00 am i felt my first contraction. After the 4th contraction i couldnt handle it any more so i got my epidural!! ( Thank god for the epidural)!!! Finally after a couple of hours i dialated to 4cm.At 7am I decided to go to sleep to speed things up. At 11:30am the nurse woke me up to check me and i was fully dialated (Thank god). At 11:45am i started to push, after 7 pushes she was here!!!!!! 5lbs 13oz with a head full of hair.
