Hi!
I am Bobbi, Tricia's friend, letting you all know that sweet baby Sofia is here!
Tricia had a Dr appt at 1pm--Dr checked and stretched her cervix...she was 4cm--that could be stretched to a 5! 80% (or 90%) effaced...and not sure what station.
Dr wanted to break her bag to get labor going since they live 1-1.5 hrs away. We went to lunch so Tricia could think about it. She weighed the + vs - and decided to let them break it. At 4pm we arrived at the hosp. At around 5pm the DR broke the bag and she had a good contrx pattern going, but all pains were 'talkable' (she could talk thru them). By 7pm the pains were getting intense--but Tricia really concentrated and worked thru them without pain meds. The nurse checked her around 830 and she was at 7-7.5cm, fully effaced, but at 0-+1 station.(I think).
Then it was a flurry of activity...nurse left, she had some strong contrx close together...then she threw up--salsa and sangria from lunch and mango 'naked juice' during early labor! (shes gonna love that I included that...)
At about 845 (only 15 min after the nurse said she was at 7-7.5) she was pushing like crazy!...at 902, Sofia was born...minimal tearing, no drugs, and Sofia latched on and nursed like a pro within 10 min of being born!
Tricia is resting with baby Sofia with a happy heart knowing she got thru it quickly, drug free, and nursing went smoothly!
We are all so proud of her and of 7lbs, 1oz, 19in long Sofia!

I hope I haven't forgotten anything...Tricia will be able to fill you all in when she returns!!!

Bobbi (Mrs_Hos)
