Well ladies.. after 20 hours of labor, Layla is finally here! She was born May 26th at 8:59pm weighing 7 pounds 11 ounces at 19.8 inches long. :D They put me on petocin at 1am and my contractions started almost right away, they weren't too bad at first but by 8am they were pretty intense. I got my epidural and took a longgg nap (I had hardly slept since getting to the hospital). The epidural was actually the only time I cried, it wasn't even the giant needle in my back, it was me having to hunch over for so long because they couldn't find the perfect spot. When they first checked me in the morning, I was about 2cm dilated. Four hours later, I was 3cm, a few more hours later I was at 6cm and my water had broken on it's own. By 7pm I was a full 10cm dilated and ready to push. I was so numb at that point, I felt like I couldn't push. I pushed for about 45 minutes and they told me I could take a break, so I did. I sat up hoping the gravity would help, and about 45 minutes later the doctors came back. My epidural had kinda worn off by then, but I was thankful because even though I could feel a lot more, it was a LOT easier for me to push. They ended up having to cut me a little so they stitched me up for that afterwards and apparently I had a tiny tear, but it didn't bleed so they didn't feel the need to stitch that one (these stitches HURT!). She finally popped out at 8:59pm and was perfectly healthy. :) I was a little disappointed because I wanted SO to cut the cord and I told them that, but it all happened so fast, the doctors ended up doing it without thinking I guess.



SO was great support the whole time. Every time my contractions hit me, he'd rub my back. He was at my side the entire time, he let me squeeze the shit out of his hand while they were doing the epidural. While I was pushing, he kept telling me, "You got this baby!" He also didn't let anyone hold her until I held her (he held her before me because it was taking forever for them to push my placenta out and stitch me up). It was a relief because I really thought I'd want to punch him. :lol: My mom kind of annoyed the hell out of me, she kept rubbing my face and counting really fast while I was pushing (she was counting to ten for me and I could tell even the doctors were getting annoyed because they kept telling her to slow down), and SO's mom was in the room too and kept taking pictures. Every time that stupid flash went off I wanted to tell her to stop, but whatever, I wanted them in there because I wanted the support and knew they wanted to be there (SO's mom just about cried when I told her she could be in the room).



I've been attempting to breast feed and she's latching but not really s*****g too much. I think she just needs to get the hang of it. Last night and early this morning I had to bottle-feed her some formula because my blood sugars were so low while I was in labor, they wanted to make sure she got enough to eat so her sugar wouldn't get low. I didn't really have much of a choice, but they said she should still breast feed just fine. I hope so..



So.. there's my birth story ladies hahah. I'll post some links to some pictures, Photobucket isn't working for whatever reason so I can't post the actual pics. I really thought she was gonna be a chunky, rolly baby but it looks like all the weight is in her face. She's got long, skinny arms and legs, a big belly and fat cheeks. :)

I woke up at 5:30 this morning with cramps :/ Lasted until a little after 10. They didn't really hurt, just uncomfortable. I think they are gone for now though!



She is moving around like crazy! I have been sitting on my yoga ball some to try and get her out of my ribs. I am interested to see at my appointment next week if I have any cervix change.



What is everyone doing for the holiday? We dont have any plans. We may go swimming later but relaxing is on the top of my agenda Lol.

Hey everybody...this weekend ended up being very eventful! I woke up saturday morning with painful contractions that were 3 1/2 minutes apart so we went into the hospital. I was only 1 cm but my fluid was even lower so they decided to keep me and induce. I got started on pitocin a little after 12 pm and at around 4:45pm I was only at almost 5 cm. Then just a little later around 5:20ish the dr came running in and checked me...I was fully dilated. I had wanted to try different methods of pushing so they had me get up on my hands and knees but when I did they looked and babies head was already out. The drs started freaking out and flipped me over and with one small push she was out. She wasnt breathing well and her extremeties were blue at first and she had apparently inhaled a little meconium but after a few minutes she was ok and got a 9 on her apgar! She is so good and mellow and is already so good at breastfeeding. DH and I are absolutely over the moon for her :)
Kadee Olivia was born on 5/25/13 at 5:25pm at exactly 38 weeks gestation and weighed 6lbs 1 oz and was 19 1/4 inches long.
