Cole Is here!

Well, I ended up not having to be induced!! I was having a dream early sunday morning that my water broke...woke up in a puddle!!! YAY. I got to the hospital around 7 am, and got in my room about 8. I was 5 cm and 80% effaced...The water had meconium (baby pooed inside) so I had to have an amnio infusion (where they just flush your uterus with water) and then they started pit to get my contractions regular. By 1030 they were every 2 mins and the baby was on a wierd nerve and I was DYING of labor in my left hip and leg. I was bawling and crying. Got my epi, was 6.5 cm, at 11 am. Then the epi made me sick and made my BP drop, but it went back up and eventually I felt good. at 130 I was STILL 6.5 cm, and I was like WHAT!!! I thought I would be more. SO they upped the pit again, and an hour later I was 8. Then at330 she checked and I was 10 and he was READY (as she said ) I just waited for the doc and when she got there she told me to push, I did and she was like "WOW, good!!" TOOK A DEEP BREATH AND PUSHED AGAIN AND SHE GOES "STOP!!" his head was out. They suctioned him, I pushed one more time and he was born at 4:04 pm!! He was 7 lb, 4 oz 20.5 Inched long. His lungs were completely clear and his apgar was 9!! He is the sweetest thing already!! He smiles alot (I swear) and is nursing like a champ. He is a dream and I am already SO in love with him!!!
