Went to the doctors on Friday, the 21st, to have my bp rechecked and my urine. There was a slight trace of protein showing and my bp was a little high again. I asked doctor to sweep my membranes to see if that would get things going on their own. I had been 4cm and 80% for 3 weeks and my contractions would not just stay around. So around 2am Saturday morning I woke up with back pain and started to time my pains. They started at 10mins apart, I would walk around and they would keep coming. They got to 7 mins apart- I woke up DH- had to twice lol and he asked if he had time to shower haha so he showered quickly to wake up. We left for l&d around 4ish and by the time we made it to hospital they were 3-4mins apart and when they checked me I was 7cm. Come 730 doc broke my water. I showered, walked around, applied my EO and diffused them. Come 915 I was ready to push. I felt like I couldn't do it and was getting so tired. Nurse went to get me a birth ball to sit on to get baby down past my pelvic. I stood up on the bed, squatted down holding onto the bar across me and he was out in no time. DH had to page nurse because no one was in there. Doc came in and got his shoulders out. Grayson Brooks entered the world at 943am 6-14oz 21in. The recovery has been so much easier this time for me and I feel amazing!
Wow so quick! Glad it went well and congrats!
First - congrautions!
That all sounds amazing! I wanted that, but was induced bc of high BP... pitocin kicked my butt and I got some pain mess in my IV. The next go around I hope it all happens on its own, and plan to do hot showers, walking and other stuff!
Thank you all!! I am feeling great babies doing awesome and I had my placenta encapsulated.
