So Thursday night I had contractions for a few hrs and thought I was in labor but they slowed down then stopped and My nurse Brian got me settled down and gave me a good sleeping pill and put me to bed!!! Every thing stopped.
Well Friday night around 9 pm I was having to pee every 10 min and would have contractions everytime iwas done. Well they started to really hurt and I called my nurse and she came in and I was hunched over counter breathing really hard through my contractions. She put me to bed and checked me and said that i was dialated to a three but not to call Brian until she checked me in an hour to see if I was progressing.!!! We I was at a four and hour later and my contractions were 2 -4 minutes apart and getting really really strong! They called Dr. Huish and told him the news and I was feeling that something wasn't right. Well they my labs back and the preeclampcia was back with a vengance my liver enzymes were high platletts low again and I was having sever upper abdomen pain meaning my liver was not doing good. I c alled Brian and Him and my mom were on their way down, in the mean time I got my epidural cause the contractions were so hard. Brian and my mom showed up around 1:30am and shawna and Chris and Melissa were there as was Stacie. Dr. huish walked in around 2:30 and said Tif we are going to make you feel better, your body is telling us it's done and we need to get that baby here. He said I am going to break your water and get things moving along better. Well my contractions slowed down after that so they put me on pitocin and at 3:30 my nurse came in and checked me and said I was at a 6 so she would come check on me in an hour. My mom was standing there next to me and I looked up at her after 6 contractions and told her I felt ALOT of pressure and I thought she was coming out! so we called the nurse in and then I was sure she was right there. the nurse came in and lifted my gown and said Tif squeeze your legs together she is right there. I thought what the heck I'm not even a 10 yet how can that happen. well dr huish came in and was putting on his booties and they turned me over and got one let in the sterrup and I was trying with all my might not to even breath cause I new she was right there. Well as my leg went up in the stirrips I felt like my water broke but it was her landing on the bed. Yeah,. Brian said it looked like a slip and slide type delivery. She looked so good and much better than I thought she would. Brian got to cut the cord and she was taken over to the incubator so they could asses her. they wrapped her up and I got to give her a kiss and then they took Brian and Brynlee and went to the Special Care Nursery. Brian said they stuck a tube down her throat and intibated her with a CPAP and then started IV's and all kinds of thing s going on in just her first hour of life. She has been through a lot but is doing really good right now!!!!! Here are some pics of those first few hours and day of her life.
