So...

I went in at 5 am on Thursday morning. The jell got put in at 6 ish. Well my doctor came in around 10:50, checked me.. I had dilated to 3 so he broke my water and said he'd be back around 5 pm to check me

I'm in SO much pain from that but have to wait to get ANY pain medication. Well finally I started crying 'cuz they were coming so bad. They gave me a shot of something in my IV (oh they started pitiocin (sp?)) which didn't help.. well anyways.. the drug made me SO tired that I fell asleep for about 45 mins before they were coming hard again. well, the dr cam in at 5 and said I hadn't changed AT ALL and if I didn't have any change by 7 he was going to do a C-section.. He told the nurse when I get to 4 to give my the epi. I FINALLY go to 4 and was able to get it. It was nice I could RELAX. Well the dr cam and checked me at 7 and said you should have dilated more in 7 hours (was still at 4). He said we're gonna get you ready for a section...

Well, they came and gave me another drug to make me numb EVERYWHERE for the section.. Finally about 8:30 they take me back to do the section. Get me set up and they lat my mom in.. By 8:55 pm Alexander Jude Haines was here. He was 8lbs 15oz. The piggy lol. 19 3/4 inches long

I'm in very much pain but besides that AJ and I are doing GREAT. I'll post pics when I feel a bit more up to it...

Congratulations on your little miracle!

FYI: Get a new doctor next time. First pregnancies can take a lot longer than 12 hours to dilate.

Good luck with your recovery.

I thought it was going to be Chase, Suzy.
I think I'm confused.
People need to stop having babies. Either that, or name them all the same thing.

yes, it was...

and ingi, my mom had the same problem. She stopped dilating at 6 and was like that for like 3 days. I just stopped at 4 or 5 and was like that for 7 hours. The doctor didn't want me in a lot of pain an we were supposed to get 10-12 inches of snow and didn't think he'd make it back the next day if I hadn't had him...and not dilating more than 3 cm in 14 hours...he doesn't like that. it concerns him... He said after looking at the baby there was NO WAY i'd have had him on my own
