and wright i to had no nesting! it has to do something with having another child. i just got all the clothes washed and the bed somewhat together. heck we havent even put the car seat in the car yet. but it sounds like we are all pretty much done! YAY!!! so this will be a busy week for babies!!!
Good Luck to you all hope everything goes good!
ok so here i am 5 days past my due date. I went to that doctors yesterday and she did a cervical massage. Well that gave me some pretty hard contractions last night but here it is 10:30 am and no more contractions. The ones i had last night where not consistent. So i have to go back to the doctors tomorrow and they are going to hook me up the a fetal monitor, do an ultra sound to make sure that my amniotic fluid level is ok and then another cervical massage. Then if i don't go into labor before monday i go back to the doctors and they are going to schedule a day to induce me. Boy i really think that my pregnancy flew by up until about 2 weeks ago. Its been dragging and i feel like my daughter is never going to get here and that she is being very stubborn! Well who knows maybe i'll go into labor later today! That would be SO great!
well i had my little girl on 9-9-09! she was 7lbs and 20 1/2 inches long!
she is perfect and now we are just trying to get in the swing of things with 2 kids!
i hope everyone else is doing great and holding there little bundle of joy!!
He has finally arrived! I checked into the hospital on 9-2 for a scheduled induction. They placed the Cervidil that evening, but I don't think that it was placed correctly, because 12 hours later, I still had not dialated. They still started my Pitocin on the morning of the 3rd. Contractions started coming, and fast! I dialated to about 3-4cm, 85% effaced when my doctor decided to break my water. Gavin was still very high up, and after she checked me and broke my water, I was in so much pain that I caved and decided to go for the epidural. BIG MISTAKE! I don't think this girl quite knew what she was doing, or maybe she was nerv ous, because it took her several tries to correctly place the epi. After that, they tried placing the internal monitor on Gavin's head, because he was beginning to have trouble with decelerations. I made it to 4cm and after a couple of hours, there was still no change. My doctor then approached me with my only option: C-Section. I was heartbroken, and terrified because I had never had surgery. The meds they gave me made me sick, so I was on the operating table puking my guts out too. But, at 8:50PM on 9-3-09, but beautiful baby boy arrived! He was admitted to the Special Care nursery because of issues with his respirations (100+) He also has a suspected heart murmur, and was slightly jaundiced. He was released from special care, and on 9-7-09, we were both discharged. Baby is doing great, but healing from the surgery has been difficult, because I am used to being able to do for myself. I am feeling much better now, but recovery is far from over. I wish all of the other mothers that have given birth luck with their babies, and to the ones whose bundles of joy have not yet arrived, your time is coming...hang in there!

She is finally here! 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! I'm so excited that she is finally here!
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!
