Ok I am going to type this fast bc I am sure she won't be asleep much longer.
Ok Thursday Morning I was up at 2am bc I just could NOT sleep knowing we
were going to have a baby that day and well I just started straightening up and making sure I had everything together and just waiting around until the
alarm went off so I could go wake dh up. Well we leave and get to the hospital at 5:30 am don't know why they want me there that early seeing is my induction wasn't till 8am but anyways we had to register and wait for a room and we got up to our room at about 7:15am or so and my doc came in there about a quarter till 8am and broke my water and they started the pitocin at 8am well she no longer had pushed the button and my contractions hit right as soon as the pitocin got turned on well about 10 am my contractions started REALLY getting painful and I tried VERY hard not
to have an epi but I just couldn't do it so they called for me to get the
epi at about 10:30am and by the time he got it in and it started working it
was about 11am and my nurse cked me and I was at 6cm so dh and my mom and the kids decided to go get some lunch bc we all felt it would be a couple more hours well I decided (this was about 10 after 11am)that I would try and
rest since the pain was gone well about 5 minutes after I closed my eyes
I started feeling like I needed to push now mind you this was all of 10-15 minutes since the nurse had cked me and I told her hey I am feeling lots of
pressure and instead of cking me she just said yeah it is probably just her head moving down (we didn;t have the brightest nurse) I just said ok and she left well it was just getting worse with every contraction so I told my
grandma to call them on the cell and tell them to come back real quick and
by 11:45 they were back up there and I called the nurse to come ck me
and sure enough I was complete and her head was crowning so she goes
to get the doc and he was in the middle of another delivery so I had to close
my legs and wait for him to get there then when he got there the durn nurse hadn't even gotten the bed broke down yet so here I am dying to push and
the nurse is just taking her sweet time well finally at 12:30pm they were ready and not even 2 whole pushes later Miss Briana was born looking just
like her daddy. It was awsome and I am still like in shock that I have another
little one. The kids stayed in there and they thought it was neat and it
didn't freak them out a bit. When they finally took her to clean her off and
weigh her and told me how much she weighed I just couldn't believe it I thouht for sure she would just be around 7lbs and not much more well I was
WRONG and I lost half of the weight I gained just after having her so that
was awsome. IDk why the heck I am so sore this time but I am I guess bc
she was my biggest but I am just really weak feeling and my back where the
epi was hurts really bad but it is getting better everyday. Well that is about
it this was also my shortest labor 4 1/2hrs man I wish it wouldv'e been that
short with the other 2. Ok now I am going to go get the camera and see if I can't get atleast a couple of pics up.

You are so sore because you tried to keep from pushing! The nurse had hands to catch, didn't she?

Rest up and enjoy your sweet little one! My friend's almost 11lb baby seemed tiny to me, newborns are so sweet and tiny no matter how big or small they are.

Thanks all!
Michelle - I never thought about that making me sore but this is the only one I had to do that with so I guess that is what caused it.
