When my water was broken, it was the biggest rush, but I couldn't stop shaking!! And when they broke my water, the baby finally dropped, so I felt mega pressure. So I asked for some pain relief, and they gave me the epidural. Oh god, that felt good. They broke my water at 9pm, so I got the epidural at about 9:30-10:00pm. After that I was relaxed, and finally got some sleep. At around 3am, I felt the worst pain ever....the epidural had worn off, so I was feeling nonstop contractions, so they put some more in (it was a drip epi). After I was numbed again, the nurse checked me and I was 10cm. So around 4:15am, I started pushing. Finally at 5:02am, my daughter Isabella was born weighing 8lbs4oz, and a perfect 19'' long. However, the joy was shortly lived when I started passing out due to excessive bleeding. My blood pressure dropped really low (I think it was 54/49?), so they gave me a shot of adrenaline. I don't remember anything between the time she was born until about 8am. I remember spots of being in recovery, recieving demoral while the nurse was saying that I wasn't in good shape. They also had to put ice packs on my "down there" area to stop the swelling.
So I woke up to some breakfast at 8am, and my daughter was still in the nursery. I puked up the eggs, and then asked them to bring my daughter. She was the beautifulist!! Had a head full of hair and the chinkiest eyes. My parents called her the eskimo baby. We stayed in the hospital for 3 days after that (for a vaginal delivery!!). So in total, our hospital stay was 5 days. They kept me for observation that long (my blood pressure would drop a lot while I was sleeping), and then she tested borderline Strep B (and was cleared of course). I got cut and still tore (2nd degree laceration and 4th degree[the worst kind] tears.).
Now she's 19 months old, and sometimes I'm still in disbelief that she's my little girl. Children are so amazing <33
I love telling my birthstory!!! lol. ::hint of sarcasm::
