hey,you'll be holding your precious son in your arms soon.This is truly a special blessing from God.
HUGS x x x
545AM...cervix is 4/5CM dilated, bag of waters bulging..cervix still appearing to be at least mostly thinned out. Want to marry my nurse she's such a sweetheart LOL.
Was given the option to start pitocin now or wait until a bit later...they're doing a scheduled c-section and my nurse was concerned that with my history of dilating and laboring quickly that I would be into the pushing stage before they could come over from the surgery to give me an epidural, SO...opted to wait until the morning shift comes and start the pitocon after 730/8 so hopefully I can labor for a bit without it but still have it put it on time.
Lots and lots of pressure at the moment..baby's heart-rate on the monitor is 150ish and he's waking up. Bulging waters feels odd....really odd. Can definitely feel it, lol.
Good Luck! thank you for sharing your experience with us too! Wont be long and he will be in your arms!
thanks :) I can't believe it's finally happening..
8AM; Pitocin drip started at 1, so VERY low dose. Will be given the epidural as soon as they're done administering to the c-section next door...then if my water hasn't broken by the time they're done (bulging further at the moment) they'll probably break it and things look like they'll go pretty fast...feeling pretty good right now.
Good mood, anxious but not nervous or scared!
WOW its really exciting to get the play by play. I'll definitely be tuned in all morning to see how everything is going. Good Luck!
YAY!! OMG I'm so happy that things are finally in full swing. I may not get to check a lot on your updates today (still workin on the stupid living room) but I hope by this evening to be hearing about how gorgeous Grey is and how happy you are that it's all over :)
Best of luck to you! Sounds like things are moving right along.
I think it just awesome that you are sharing this event with all of us! Things seem to be getting a bit intense and moving right along. Breathe Deeply! And feel free to scream, it helps! lol
9AM...man came in to give me epidural, read my chart about my heart problems...promptly walked back out to schedule an ECG, lol. So now I'm waiting on the ECG for approval to be given an epidural...and then they'll start the pitocin back up (they stopped it for now just to be on the safe side).
Been having some pretty good contractions but they eased up when the pitocin was stopped...still feeling pretty good!
ooooohhhh! does it hurt??lol! good u feeling good.
nah it's uncomfortable but my contractions aren't that big right now...
930AM Found results of a recent-enough ECG that clears me to get the epidural so now waiting on the anesthesiologist...then we'll resume the pitocin drip at a much higher rate and I'll find out whether my water is going to break or be broken...apparently they just had like 2 more women come in laboring and 1 repeat c-section to it's craaaazy right now.
allowed to eat this bizarre jell-o stuff that's not too tasty....hoping to be able to lie down and rest once my spine is done being poked, lol.
YAY YAY YAY! Hopefully Grey will be a quick and easy delivery for you! I'll be watching like a hawk for updates!

no so far no need for c-section and LOL melka i'll try to remember...
1030AM-1130AM...received the epidural around 1030..had to have it positioned twice, OUCH! my right leg kept twitching and I was not a happy camper...but it's in now and working. Contractions are quite painful even with the epi and regular..not huge yet though...baby looks great on monitor...I had LOTS of fluid when they broke my water omg couldn't believe it lol. trying to stay comfy right now.
It's kinda cool they have it so all the girls on L&D can see everyone else's hb and contractions...I'm the most regular at the moment but not the biggest.
WOOHOO! Come on Baby Grey!!!
Good Luck sweetie!!!!!!!!!!!!! I cannot wait to see baby Grey! Ahhh I bet her is adorable!
thanks ladies...ahh the contractions are all in my back it's getting a tad uncomfortable LOL
Hopefully it goes quick! I keep saying that, lol, but I really hope it does so you can have Grey in your arms!
Did they say how long they would wait until they checked you again?
praying for you!!! this is exciting im loving the posts; try to keep them coming cause they're entertaining me. ;)
enjoy this part--as you probably know its the best moment and i wish i could relive it!! so don't wish it away!
