Well it seems like days have been going by so fast the baby has been doing fine she loves to eat and she has been so sweet, it's been hard these last couple of weeks the sad thing was when we got out of the hospital and headed home we came to find out we had no place to live, we were staying with my husbands family till we could get back on our feet but I guess to come and find out we were no longer welcomed so my parents had taken us in. I guess that's something I wasn't expecting. But now we are doing a little bit better and we are enjoying the baby everyday sorry haven't written in awhile but I wanted to let everyone know how I was doing and how the baby is doing I will be back on lj soon see ya.
|Exhausted, But Happy And All That Good Stuff!
Wanted to make a quick post on my induction the morning didn't start out the way it was suppose to. It seem like the nurse we had, was having bad luck she dropped everything and she just seem like she was having a bad day so it was a rough morning.
The dr was giving me meds to start contractions they were not as strong as I thought they would be, but when she came in to break my bag of water the real contractions had started to set in.
They were strong and they were coming fast I couldn't believe how fast everything went. I wanted an epidural to numb some pain. I was already at 6 cm when the dr finally came in to give me the meds. It turned out to be a little late so it really didn't work at all. I kept feeling the contractions get stronger and I would ask the nurse why the pain hasn't gone down and she really didn't do anything about it.
After I got the epidural not even 10 mintues later, I had felt a lot of pressure like the baby was pushing down, and I felt like I had to push. I then had my self checked again to see if I was dilated and i dilated to 9 in a half cm everything seemed so fast.
The nurse called my dr and my dr came in to see me and she was getting everything ready to give birth to my baby. I was pushing at 9 and a half cm, and I was in so much pain I could feel everything that was happening I couldn't believe how much pain I was in.
But here I am. My husband and I have a 7 pound 6 oz 18 in baby girl I still remember all the pain that I had to feel but looking at our new baby girl takes it all away. Well still tired and gonna get more rest I will be back on lj soon. P.S if u plan to get an epidural I would ask the nurse if you can get the epidural at 4 cm. Talk to u all later.

|Nervous About Induction
Well tomorrow may 8 th is gonna be the day and we are very nervous. My due date was may 22nd, but since I have had high blood pressure with this pregnancy, my doctor wanted me to be induced. This will be the first time that I will be induced and I am very very nervous.
I don't know what will actually happen, but am excited about the baby coming. I never thought I could hold out on knowing the babys gender. I wanted to know really bad, but my husband really wanted it to be a surprise, so I thought it would be fun to not know what the babys sex would be till I gave birth.
Cuz of my high blood pressure, I had to go threw a lot threw out this pregnancy. We had a scare, I had a little bit of bleeding during the beginning of the pregnancy. We went to the ER and after sitting there nervous from 10pm to 5am, they still found a heartbeat, and said that I needed to rest. They said they didn't know for sure that the baby would make it, but thankfully, we are here and everything came out fine.
I had to go to the doctor once a week for blood pressure check ups. I also had to go twice a week for non stress tests. That's when they hook this machine to u, and u can hear the babys heartbeat to make sure the baby didn't seem stressed. I was put on bed rest. The only thing I really didn't like was going to all these appointments, but the only good thing that came out of it was to hear the babys heartbeat twice a week. I felt good knowing that the baby was doing good.
Now all the appointments end and time to meet our new son or daughter. My husband and I are crossing our fingers hoping that the baby will be a girl but if not we will be happy either way. Am gonna try to get enough sleep as I can before the big day tomorrow and I will be back on lj with baby in hand soon! Thanxs for all the well wishes! Current Mood: anxious
