Link to your birth post/story, if you have one:
Saturday night DH and I went out for a nice dinner while our 4 yo DD stayed at her grandmas house. She was supposed to stay over but I decided that I wanted to bring her home so we could spend some time together. Well about 30 min after we got home I started to get really nauseas and shakey. Then the contractions started about every 5 min or less. So we had to call grandma again to meet us at the hospital to pick up DD and I felt terrible! Once we got there, we sat in triage for four hours until finally being admitted. I was initially 3-4 cm at midnight , then stayed the same at 2 am but was having contractions every 3 min, so they decided to check at 4 at which point I was finally 5-6 cm! After getting settled into our room, DH and I walked the halls for a while. Once my Dr got there at 0700 I was still only about 6cm and contractions were becoming less frequent. So she decided to break my water and see how things progressed. Within the hour, things intensified and I dilated to 7 cm. I was hoping to do it naturally but after hearing a woman next door scream in agony for over and hour I decided to go for the epidural. By 11am, I was pretty much fully dilated but the epidural Was only working on my abdomen and unfortunately not anywhere below that. After a few practice pushes, I started really trying at around 1130 and my little girl was born at 1142. The pain was absolutely unreal but it helped me push her out faster then my DD and I didn't tear at all. Little Ava was pink and screaming and scored 9 on her apgar. We did skin to skin for an hour or so afterwards. It was crazy and wonderful having a normal birth after the scary and unexpected complications with my first. We are both home now after two days in the hospital without any issues.
