After 18.5 hours of induced labor my special little man has finally joined us in this world.
I've really learned this year that plans are wise to make but life doesn't always go as planned. For labor I had planned to do everything naturally - no meds whatsoever. That didn't happen. On Friday 9.19.08 I went in for my regular doctor's appointment when they noticed that my blood pressure was higher than usual - though they sent me home telling me that I should take things easy. At around 3:00 pm my doctor's office called telling me that my blood tests came up abnormal and should come in to get monitored - if my blood pressure didn't improve then I would be induced. Arrived at the hospital around 6:00 pm and then 8:00 pm I was inducedd. Sorry for making this short but I've got to get back to the baby. Around 5:45 am my water broke...contractions were strong.....couldn't control the pain....asked for the epidural....cried about asking for meds because I wanted to do everything naturally....got over it as long as a healthy baby came out of me....started pushing around 1:00 pm....popped out the most special person in my life about an hour and a half later. It was an insane sensation but something pretty incredible.
Anyway I will hopefully get a chance to better explain the feeling of being a mother but it's amazing that I automatically have all of this love for such a little person. I'm in love!!!
