janelle - April 6

Hi everyone well I was due on the 5th but my water broke at 8am on the 1st I went to the hospital but I was not in labor I hung out at the hospital all day waiting to go into labor it did not happen. My doctor made me wait 18 hrs before induction so I was scheduled to be induced at 2 in the morning.I was GBS positive so I started my antibiotics at 7 that night. I still felt nothing I was only at 2 cm ay about 1145 that night I started going onto labor on my own. Yeah I did not have to be induced!! I went into the tub at midnight for an hour and had some really good contractions. I got out at 1 and I was at 3 I decided to go back into the tub I stayed in there until 330 at that point I needed drugs. I got a shot of demerol and gravol and they hooked me up to the monitor. The demerol did not take the edge off the contractions but really helped to relax me in between. by now I was at 5 cm. I stayed on the bed and mellowed out in between contractions at 430 I was at 7cm. by 5 I was at at 8 and all the sudden I was 10 and I knew it. What a weird feeling I started pushing at 6 and had my little girl at 628 on april 2nd. I had to get an episiotimy because the cord was around her neck. She weighed 5 pounds 11 ounces she was just a little peanut I love her so much.This is our first and I must say birth is a painful but totally amazing experience. I wish you all luck and hope to see you over in the infant care forum. Oh yeah her name is Caelyn patricia.Labor dust to all you!!
