|Miss Ella Paisley - Born April 12, 2013|
Well here we go, if your new to my blog let me fill you in. I had a miserable pregnancy, contractions since month six. Not fun. Anyway the week of her birth the contractions intensified and would be regular for a few hours then subside. Not to mention the period cramps and back pain, so to say the least we had a few false alarms. Ran to the hospital thinking I'm in labor only to find out I'm not even close. In fact, April 1st was one of those false alarms, constant contraction for over 12 hours, call the family and run to the hospital only to find out I'm only dilated to 1! So needless to say, when they started up again Thursday night I wasn't in a hurry to rush off to the hospital again.
When we get there we hear a doctor yelling out of the delivery area "Push, push!" They get me in a room, hook me up to all the monitors and we wait for the doctor. While we wait I hear the nurses talking to one another saying they have 4 people in active labor waiting to deliver, 3 scheduled c-sections and one just walked in (me). I'm guessing there were at least 20 babies born that day! Crazy!
We get home about 8 am, I take a Benedrel and pass out. Wake up around 2:30 and now the back pain is ten times worse and the contractions are a little harder. My husband is off picking up my son from school and my mom's gone too. I text them both that I want to go back to the hospital and that my mom needs to come so she can be the one to tell them I need to stay. However, now my friend that I had lined up to watch my kids has plans for the first time in two weeks, so I call my brother.
I start to transition, my legs start to shake uncontrollably, then my head is shaking like I'm saying no and my eyes are rolling back into my head. My poor hubby has a look of terror on his face. About 10 minutes later my midwife comes in and checks me and tells me to start pushing, but I can tell she not down all the way. This is my third kid with no drugs I know what it feels like when they are crowning, plus I don't have the urge to push yet, so my guess is I'm not fully dilated but she coming down anyway.
Wait a minute my in-laws aren't here! They are stuck in traffic, can't we just pause this show for a minute. Never mind, just as I start to push my mother-in-law busts in and rushes over! I push for 3 - 5 minutes, but her head is stuck.
