Maddens Birth Story

My due date came and went. My Doctor is very sweet and told me that he wouldn't let me go over 40 weeks so we scheduled a day to be induced. I went in Sunday night to start the Cervadil and than they would start the pit in the morning. Karson stayed the night but didn't get much sleep because he was on call and was up working most of the night. Monday morning came and they started the pit at 7am. I was feeling pretty excited thinking that my baby would make his way into the world by 3 at the latest. Boy was I wrong! I was having contractions but they were not very consistent and I was having hardly any pain. By about 4pm I was only dilated to a 3. A stinking 3! My Doctor came in and sent everyone away for an hour in hopes that I could get some rest and start progressing. While I was trying to rest my contractions were getting stronger and were starting to hurt a little. I told Karson I was in a little bit more pain and he was thinking it was in my head because I wanted it to happen so bad but the monitor doesn't lie! The contractions were starting to become consistent and stronger. Well about 7 my Doctor checked me and I was still a 3. By this point my Doctor was suggesting that I go home and come back on Wednesday and try it all again. I did not want to go home so we decided to give it til 9 and if nothing happened I was going home. My nurse came in about 8:30 and checked me again and I was still a 3. You can't tell a pregnant women she is going home still pregnant. I lost it! I had only a half an hour to get past a 3 and it looked like I was most likely going home. My sweet sister Nikki offered to massage my back to help me relax. I guess I was relaxing to much because I thought I peed my pants. Karson went and grabbed the nurse and come to find out I didn't pee but my water broke! Looks like I wouldn't be going home! Since my water broke they decided to give me my epidural right away since I was going to have him somehow that night. I went from a 3 to a 10 in about 3 hours. I pushed for about 25 minutes and my sweet little boy was here. I didn't get to hold him right away because he wasn't breathing very well and than I started to bleed so they sent everyone out. About a half hour later I got to meet my little man. I am so thankful for the love this little guy has brought into our lives. I never knew that I could love so much.

these three will all be in the same grade!

only 3 weeks apart!
