Birth Story Nicholas Has Arrived

Hey Ladies, I just thought I would take a moment to share our birth story. I was admitted to the hospital on Sun. Jan 21st for the beginning of my induction. They started me out with cytotec around 8pm...I had three rounds of cytotec before things started to happen. This was really surprising to my dr. since I was already 2cm dilated and 50% effaced. Anyhow, around 6am I started getting regular contractions and they gave me stedol (sp?) to help with the pain...at 8am they started me on pitocin and broke my water. Once the dr. broke my water..that was it..the pain was on. Only prob. with this was that my nurse had failed to schedule my epidural so I had to wait for over an hour..I asked for stedol, got my epidural and by 11am I was 10cm dilated and ready to push. Well once again, my nurse failed to call my dr. back...thank God he works just across the hospital! He ran over and made it to the room around 11:20am and had to help set up the birthing room..he was not happy. I finally started pushing at 11:45 and 6 pushes later Nicholas was born (12:05pm Jan22nd). He weighed 6lbs 6oz and was 20in long. He is absolutely beautiful and has even been on a regular schedule allowing us to get 7 hours of sleep!!! He was absolutely the best bday present I could have received!! If I had any advice for soon to be moms...make sure your nurse is on top of things, take the motrin they offer you afterwards and ask for an ice pack as soon as you can!! My dr. did the ice pack and motrin right away and I have had no complications. I only had one small st_tch..so everything was great! Good Luck Ladies and I'll see you on the Infant care board. Oh yeah..I was supposed to be a Feb mom...

Congratulations - I love the name Nicholas, its the name of my son too. That's great he's sleeping through already - my Nicholas is far too in love with food to have a break from it for 7 hours!
