Ethan Scott birth story
On Thur I had been having contractions about 9 min apart, but they were pretty strong. I called the nurse at 7am and she told me she wanted them closer. I had one on while on the phone with her and she said they sounded good.:headscratch: Anyway, they didn't get closer as a matter of fact they stopped, but I had a dr. appt at 10:00. So when I got in there my dr. checked me and said I was 100% effaced, and dialated to a 5. So he asked if I had my bags, if I had the camera and I did, so he sent us to the hospital. It is connected to the building his office is in. So I got in at 10:20. He wanted them to go ahead and break my water since I had been having these 9 min contractions. Which after he checked me they started again. So at 11:05 the resident dr. came in, I was then at a 7 and she broke my water. My contractions still stayed between 5-9 min. Crazy I had never had labor with contractions this far apart. At about 12:30 I was tired of being in the bed and was about to get on the birthing ball, and had a contraction as soon as I sat up. Well, it must have been enough to let him finish out, because I felt the need to push. I laid back down and the nurse checked me and sure enough I was at a 10. However, I had to wait for everyone to get there! My contractions finally went to 2-3 min and I had a few contractions where I just wanted to push and finally I said I have to push. So the nurse was going to get the resident dr who was in the hall, and my dr walked in. I think I pushed like 2 or 3 times and he was out. It went really fast. So we had Etan Scott at 12:45 he was 7lbs .5oz and 20" long. AND I did it without any meds!!!! I was trying to go this time without nubain which is what I had with the other 2 and I did it!!!!
