    Amelia Grace

    Advertisements
    Amelia Grace is one week and one day old!

    I had been having contractions from Friday before she was born, but I just kept dealing with them because they were never too bad to go in. Well, Monday (six days past my due date) they started getting pretty tough around 3am. I stuck it out until around 9am when I told DH we needed to head the hospital like, two hours ago haha. I was crying through contractions which is when I realized we had probably waited too long.

    When we finally got to triage the doctor came in to check me and said I was 7cm and fully effaced. They wheeled me to a room on a stretcher and immediately started getting me ready to deliver because my contractions were to the point that I couldn't deal with them anymore and was straight up screaming through them. Thank God for my doula because I honestly don't know how I would have done it without her. They checked me again after getting an IV in me and I was 9cm and needing to push. From the moment I got to triage I was screaming for drugs but they finally told me I was too far along when I got to the room. I went absolutely batshit crazy. DH said I kicked someone and started screaming that they would have to cut her out of me because I wasn't pushing without drugs. They finally got an anesthesiologist in when I was 10cm and trying to push holy crap she was the best looking person I'd ever seen in my life.

    So...there I was getting, trying to hold perfectly still and not shit out a baby at the same time and screaming through contractions while I got an epidural at 10cm. Little miss Amelia made her way into the world quite peacefully after that . I had an amazing delivery, although she was sunny side up her facial bruising is minimal.

    Annnnd here she is!



    Never do anything halfway unless you want to be half happy.

    Is this a dream? If it is, please don't wake me from this high. I'd become comfortably numb
    until you opened up my eyes to what it's like when everything is right...I can't believe you found me ♥
