Hi my name is Ashley. I am a mom to two wonderful boys . My husband and I welcomed our first child into the world on August 6, 2010 at 6:56 am. Lucas Earl Tackett was 7lbs 15oz and 21 inches. We welcomed our second child into the world March 11,2013 at 3:22am! Austin Scott Tackett was 8lbs 3oz ans 22 inches.

On August 5, 2010 I went in to the doctors I was 4 days past my due date at that time. I saw the doctor she said that my bp was high and that I was spilling protein in my urine. She was concerned about it so she told me to go to the hospital to be monitored. She also had called ahead and asked them to put me in to be induced the next morning either way. Before I left her office she stripped my membranes and then I went home and got my bags and headed to the hospital. When I got to the hospital they monitored me for about two hours and they said my bp was back to normal. but they were going to admit me anyway because I was have contractions every 3-5 mins which I could feel. So then they moved me to l&d. At about midnight I decided to get up and walk I went with my mom and sister first and then when we came back my dad went with me. we did not get very far and my dad said I could grab his arm when I had a contraction not even 30 seconds later I said oh-no and my dad said I know what that means and my dad looked at the nurses and said her water just broke lol. My water had to break when I was with my dad lol. They finally check me at 2:00am and I was 6cm 80% effaced and he was sitting at 0 station. About an hour later I was feeling pressure and they checked me again and I was still 6cm and there was no change. I was in a lot of pain and my contractions were about 1 min apart and so I decided to get an epidural I was having back labor and I felt like my back was going to snap in 2. About 45 mins later they came and gave me the epidural. I was able to sleep and rest for a little while. They came and checked me a few time and I went to 7 and then 8 and then 9. When I was 8-9 cm they had to come in and put a lead on my sons head because his heart rate kept dropping and they needed to monitor him better. I was feeling pressure at about 6:30 and they checked me I was 9 ++ they said and they told me I would probably be pushing in about an hour. 5 mins later I told my hubby you have to go and get someone I have to push. they checked me again and said it's time to push. 17 mins later at 6:56am Lucas Earl arrived he was 7lbs 15oz and 21 inches long. He's perfect I could not be happier!!!!!!

I was a week overdue with Austin and at 11:30 pm I started to have contractions I started timing them and they were only 4 mins apart! I waited a little while to say anything to see if they would keep coming they stayed at 4 mins apart for about 30 mins. I decided that we needed to start getting stuff around just in case it was time to go. well then i decided to take a shower and see if that did anything to them and they started to get a little closer so my husband called the hospital and they said I need to wait a see if they lasted for another hour. we decided around 1 am to call my father in law to come and stay with our oldest son so we could go to the hospital. by the time my father in law got to our house and we got to the hospital it was a little after 2:30 am. We got up to triage and they checked me I was at 5 cm. around this time contractions really started to pick up. they were trying very hard to get an iv going and they blew my vain (first time that has ever happened)! Then they moved me to my room I told them I had to push! the nurse told me honey you were only at 5 cm about 20 mins ago. When we got to the room she did check me and I was only at 7 cm. I was in a lot of pain at this point and was jumping out of bed every time I had a contraction because that felt better then laying there. I also asked my husband to kill me at this point lol. About 15 mins after the last time she checked me I told the nurse again I had to push. She told me to get back in bed because she did not need to have the baby come out and hit his head on the floor lol. she checked me and I was at 9cm. She called to the nurses station and told them to get the dr because I was at 9 cm and very pushy lol! about 5 mins later Austin Scott was born at 3:22 am Weighing 8 lbs 3 oz and 22 inches! After he was out the nurse looked at me and said you didn't give me time to do anything lol! I then had my iv put in and was in heaven holding my beautiful baby boy! I was in the hospital for 4 days I ended up getting a blood infection and had to be on iv antibiotics for 10 days. I was happy to finally get home and be home with all my boys!
