Brianna Nicole 10lbs 3oz! Yes i said 10lbs! And i gave birth to her vaginally! I checked into the hospital on 9/11 about 10:30pm i was doing pretty good i was 4 to 5cm and 85% effaced. I did pretty good with the pain for a little while but then around 2am i decided i needed something for the pain so they gave me something in my IV, it was very nice for about an hour, it really helped me sleep. Well after that wore off i was really feeling it so i gave in and got the epidural. That was all fine and dandy for about an hour but then all of a sudden it stopped working on my left side, they had me lay on my left side trying to get the medicine to go to that side but that didn't work. I really thought i was dying at that point, and let me tell you i was definately letting everyone know how much pain i was in! I think i scared all the women on the labor and delivery floor. So finally they had another guy come in and take out the first epidural and put in a new one. Let me tell you it was the difference between night and day! I couldn't feel a thing i was in heaven! The only problem with that was that when it came time to start pushing i couldn't feel anything so i couldn't tell if i was doing it right, so they had to turn down the dosage. Then they brought in a mirrior which helped A LOT! Plus i had my babys dad, my mom, his mom, my grandma, and 2 of my sisters in the delivery room with me so i have TONS of emoional support which was great! So then at 12:11pm my little bundle of joy was in my arms! Now here we are almost 10 weeks later and she is getting so big already! My mom told me not to blick because she will grow up so fast and let me tell you she was right!
Well congrats to all the new mommies out there and to all you others that still have some waiting to do, enjoy it now! Theres not much sleeping once they get here and your belly with never be the same again!!! LOL Good luck all!
