Cody is here!!
« on: June 14, 2011 at 01:10 PM »
Saturday morning I woke up with contractions as usual and thought nothing of them and went about my day. We had a BBQ planned so I was busy getting things ready. 5 pm came around, had a house and pool full of people and my contractions got a lot stronger for the past hour. By about 5:30 they were 2 mins apart (as they usually were) but I had to stop in my tracks when they hit. We decided to hit L&D thinking I was going to be sent home yet again but when I got to the hospital I couldnt walk or talk through the contractions and they were a minute and a half apart. I was at 4cm (3cm at my checkup on Friday) so they let me sit on the monitors for half an hour and when they checked again I was at 5 and I was admitted. I got my epi at 7cm at about 7pm. At 10pm they broke my water and my epi stopped working at about 9cm. Seemed Cody was putting some pressure on me causing a pocket and my epi wasnt hitting my right side, they got it fixed and by the time they epi kicked back in I was at 10cm. My nurse asked me to do a quick practice push and she counted to about 3 and immediately had me stop pushing. I thought something was wrong at first but she told me he was more than ready to come out. My doc came in and asked me to do another practice push to see for herself and again had me stop lol. The baby team walked in and in 2 pushes he was out at 10:56pm! I was 38w6d. Cody was 8 lbs, 2 oz, 21in long. Happy healthy full term baby! We are home now and he is doing GREAT! He has a huge appetite and is such a mellow baby. My rainbow baby is here and I have bedrest and my awesome doctors to thank! Thank you ladies for helping to keep me sane through my months of bedrest!
