Jeremiah is FINALLY here!
I went to the hospital Sunday morning to get induced. They placed a pill on my cervix that was supposed to make it thin out and dialate around 10. After almost 6 hours it didn't do anything so they gave me another one but this time I had to swallow it. My water ended up breaking at 6p.m. I was laying on my right side talking with family and friends when all of a sudden I felt something drip down my the back of my leg. All I could think was "OMG... Am I peeing on myself? Nooo...". So I told Eloy I had to go pee. He had to help me whenever I got up because I was connected to monitors and the nurses had shown him how to disconnect and reconnect me. As he started to get up, more "so called pee" came out some more. I freaked and told him to hurry. As I stood up to get out of bed more "pee" dripped down my leg. I FREAKED out and told everyone "I know this sounds wierd but I know I'm not peeing on myself. I think my water broke! Yea... because it's not yellow!" LOL
Right after the contractions started coming. Stronger and stronger. When my nurse checked me she said I was paper thin and dialated to 10. I figured if this is it, I can take the pain. Not too long after I decided to get the epidural. I was going to try to give birth naturally. Good thing I got the epi though! My doctor came in and checked me a little bit after and she said I was only dialated to a 3! Good thing for drugs! There's no way I could have done it without.
When it came time to push I was ready! Unfortunaly, I pushed for two and a half hours. Yea... not fun. I was so out of it. All I could hear was Eloy, my mom, and his mom. Let me tell you, they were a great support team. I especially could not have gone through everything without Eloy there. When I would get contractions I would just cling to him.
