wow.. the last few days seem like  a blur!

Wednsday night was my last night at work.. according to my given "due date" I was 4 days past due.. and i was MISERABLE...

My shift is not technically over until 11pm.. but i had been having pretty strong braxton hicks that day.. and decided to leave early... so i left about 9:30 and got in the car to drive home.. I made it about 2 miles from my house.. and my water broke.. all over my car... I never realized how much liquid that a broken water consisted of... WOW.. makes me glad i have leather seats!

I woke Nick up when I got to the house.. I was shaking.. either because I was excited.. or scared..

No contractions though.. I was thinking this labor thing was gonna be easy..

 

I got to the hospital at 11:45, and by 12:30 I was in a room on monitors.. but still no contractions...

At 1:15am.. they checked me again.. I was at 4 and completely effaced.. and I assume that she aggitated my little one.. because I went from NO contractions to STRONG ones that were less than 3 mins apart.. OMG I thought that I was going to DIE...  they made me wait for my epidural until i had recieved a whole bag of iv fluid.. so i had to suffer for about an hour and a half... 

the relief I felt when they finally came in to do it...

 They had to put it in and take it out 5 time before they got it in a spot that would hold..  stupid back!

but it was sooooo worth it.. next thing i knew it was almost 7 am, and they were paging my dr..

she got there at 7:15  pushed 5 times.. and POOF theres my little girl!

Congrats!!!!

Yeah I contractions at 4 cenimeters suck. I went from 1.5 cm to 5 cm in like 2 hours....the contractions at 5 cm are AWFUL....by the time I got my epidural I was crying, throwing up, and shaking. Epidurals are AWESOME. You get it and go to sleep then wake up push and presto you have a baby!
