Its a boy!

Paxton Richard was born on July 16th at 610am. He was 7lbs15oz and 21.5inches (they said 20 but they are stupid ).

I went to bed the night before with mild contractions like every night. Woke up at 1am pretty sure it was time but waited another hour to wake up DH. Called the babysitter for an hour till she finally picked up. We got to hossy at 345am and they checked me after about 30 min but i was only 3.5cm dilated. I was in the worst pain ever. I was very mean and nasty ( I had to apologize in between contractions because I was a B). They would not admit me till I was 4cm so they tried to make me walk but I couldn't, contractions had been 2 min apart and about a min long.i had no break I couldn't walk. I was screaming for an epidural but they wouldn't do anything till 4cm. They checked me an hour and a half after the first check and I was 5.5cm so they sent me to a room. I walked to the room and I felt lik I had to push. Told the nurse and he told me that I didn't have to push because I was only 5.5cm. I told him I needed to push again and by this time I couldn't help it I was pushing. Another nurse checked me and I was 10cm. They couldn't believe it I went from 3.5cm to 10cm in an hour and a halfish. No doctor was in yet. I had like 12 nurses and corpsman in the room ( I have no idea why).they wouldn't give me drugs ( I really needed them). They had me push and soon doc came in and broke my water that was budging out (DH said it busted open all over her lol). Anyway I think I was pushing like 30-45 min and baby was born (hubby said its a BOY) and they let me hold him right away.

I guess I was bleeding really bad because she started talking about taking me to the OR if it didn't stop soon. Bleeding was bad and she ended up having to put her freaking fist up in me (mind you I had ZERO drugs) the bleeding slowed so they watched me for a while till it was "normal". Everything ended up being ok and as long as I don't start bleeding to death I will be good lol.

I called the baby sitter at about 7am to let her know baby was born and DH would be home in a few hours. She told me she needed him home NOW because YDS busted his head open and needed stitches. I told her to just bring him to the hossy so DH could take him downstairs to the ER. He ended up needing 3 staples in his head but he is fine.
