Monday, 18th Water broke at 9am
very brown and cloudy= hospital birth :(
Checked in @3pm with very few contractions and 1cm
4pm started me on pitocin (gr)
6pm 2cm, more pitocin
8pm wanted to up it again and I wanted to cry- was so nauseous I wasn't breathing during contractions and shaking.
9pm asked for epidural (gr) 4cm
9:30 epidural only half-worked-could still feel everything on my left side- but I was very happy :)
11pm 10cm-ready to push!
11:25 Samantha was born and whisked off to NICU
Tuesday afternoon, she got to stay in the room with me
Wednesday afternoon, we were discharged.
