afireinsideamanda - October 11 where to start?? on tues 10/9 i was admitted to the hospital at about 11:30....they took me to my room and by twelve thirty they started my first treatment of cervaidil... (which is a tab a mentadent breath strip that dissolves in your mouth...with a string attatched so you can pull it out quickly if theres a bad reaction) anyway, like i said, they started my treatment and it was in there till about....hmm...6:30 am?? but the contractions started hurting really bad ...two minutes apart, extremely strong...and it wasnt changing my they gave me some some nubain and phenergan at around 230 am to let me get some rest...around 7 something they gave me the epidural,(AM of course) and by 8:19 they broke my water....i was so numb it was fantastic, i didnt feel ANYTHING...but it was around ...noon when they found out i dilated to three... transition from here to further was the hardest... the medicine they gave me gave me the SEVERE shakes...i dont know what it was...which one, exactly...but i was nauseated too...throwing up. you know when people say that you should remember to breathe? sounds silly right? well youd be surprised how quickly you forget it... anyway, after i got over the nausea (the shaking stayed throughout the labor) they told me if by around 5:30 or 6 i wasnt progressed from 3 i would end up having to have a csection( well know i did NOT want that...) so i got seriously distressed...and i just pretty much accepted the fact that i would probably end up with it... at around 5 oclock the nurse came in and checked me and told me i had dilated to 8 CM!!! i literally almost fainted... i was so happy i started CRYING.... well withint the next few minutes i was fully dilated and ready to push... i pushed through six contractions, three times each, as hard as i could...and it didnt take anything, last push she was out!!!! shes perfect! madelyn was born at 6:23 on oct 10. 19 and a half inches long,13 head, 12 and three fourths body. her eyes are *right now* dark blue, with a full head of black, thin, pretty long hair... shes perfect! ill have the announcements out as soon i can. the pictures will be back in a week! until then, youve got myspace! ps theyve been giving me perkasat for meds. haha. i was in labor over 18 hours.
