Hey guys! Bet you thought I had fallen off the face of the earth!
Well after last monday's threat of induction, rhiannon decided to come on her own. In the early evening, I had what i thought were BH again. But they kept on. When they were waking me up at 12 something tuesday AM I decided to start tracking them. fairly regular, but not lasting very long, i called the midwife. she told me to come on down to the hospital and she would see if we had anythign to work with. long story short, checked in at 2:30 am, about 530 am i went into the jacuzzi tub which brought my contractions on like gangbusters. i went from 4cm to 8 cm in an hour. ouch... in fact it was way to fast and i ended up getting the epidural b/c i was really losing control. i'm not even going to get into the horror of the pushing stage... it was everything i didn't want. but my only goal at that moment was releasing rhiannon.
Rhiannon Morningstar was born at 1:02 P.M. on June 28, 2005 (the same day as her maternal great-grandmother who she will never know).
I will post pictures soon! this is the first day i have felt like getting on the computer... my tailbone has been giving me heck all week.
And so are her mommy and daddy.
I'm sorry you didn't get what you were looking for. Labor is such a crapshoot no matter what you put into it! A box of chocolates for sure, the sweet part being the baby at the end.
Enjoy your babymoon!
