Well she's here!
I went in saturday morning and had my water broken and was put on the drip at about 8:am. eehh...I'm gonna try and make this short and sweet...I was on the pitocin for about 17-18 hours total...It took a very long time for me to dialate and my contractions were very inconsistant. I had my epidural and everything was fine no pain! Then I started to feel alot of pressure. Well eventually I was dialated enough to start pushing...They turned the epidural WAY down. I have never imagined such terrible pain! I was dying! I know everyone knows it hurts and everything but man...I literally went insane with the pain. I was SCREAMING and crying and lashing back and forth in the bed...I couldn't even push it was so bad. There are NO words to describe how terrible it was...They made me "push", or at least thats what I was supposed to be doing, for about 3 hours untill they finally called another doctor in who took one look at me and said that there was no way she was coming out that way; she was stuck in my birth canal! IDOTS! I was put through HELL! And so was my poor Hannah! The anasthesiologist came in and gave me the stuff to numb me for the c-section, as soon as that kicked in I passed right out from exaustion. I was taken to the operating room and was shaking SO BAD that the anastheseologist let my mom come in earlier than she was supposed to...he was awesome! he talked to me and made jokes and stuff.
On Sunday, Febuary 13th at 5:54am my daughter was born! She weighed 8lbs 13oz and was 21 1/4 inches long. The HELL is OVER and I have my sweet baby with me!
At first she had to be put in the special care nursery she had trouble breathing and was dehydrated. (she had an Apgar score of only 2 at first, probably because of those idots leaving the poor thing stuck for so long!
) She couldn't latch on to my nipples and the poor thing was starving! I started to use a nipple sheild for awhile but she dosn't get enough out of me that way, and the stupid nurses never told me that I needed to supliment her, so I have to pump and bottle feed it to her. I don't have a pump yet and I came home from the hospital yesterday afternoon so I haven't pumped since then and I am SO SO SO engorged! AS soon as my dad gets home we are going to get one. Luckily I had a can of formula so I have been usuing that.
SO my labour was terrible (huge understatment) but it is OVER now and well worth it! The section wasn't that bad I'm stll here right? Sure I'm in lots of pain but that will pass. She is a very
now that she is out of that stupid hospital and with me and eating properly! ANYWAY I will have pictures soon!
