Amelia's birth story
teachin2011 posted:
Short: Amelia Jane was born on Sunday, November 14, @ 9:56 weighing 7 lbs. and 19 inches long.

Long: I'd been timing contractions for days and just when I'd think the time was here, they would stop or become irregular. On Saturday, they were steadily 7-9 minutes apart for the first half of the day and ended up being about 6-7 by the end of the day. I figured our little one was on her way! We still went out to dinner with friends and went to a giant Christmas store nearby to get ornaments for our families. By the time we were done shopping, I had to take a break every few minutes for a contraction.
On Sunday morning, I got up around 7 after a restless night and showered, timed contractions and read my book for a few hours. I didn't want to go too early, so we left around 11. Contrax were 5 min. apart for 2 hours. We were in L&D for a little over an hour to be monitored, 3cm. and didn't change over that period. They called my dr. and she said it was up to us to stay and have membranes ruptured or go home, so we stayed.
After walking for 45 minutes, they ruptured my membranes and the contrax kicked in like crazy! I didn't want an epidural originally but decided to get one when I was 6 cm and finally I was able to get out of the trance that contractions were putting me in! I dilated to 10 cm. really quickly and was able to push a little after 9. It was really calm in the room while I pushed and we even joked between pushes! She finally arrived at 9:56 p.m. with a full head of hair! She's nursing like a champ and sleeping really well at night so far!
Nicole (24), DF (26), 2 furbabies Oliver and Gohan, and a little girl, Amelia Jane, due 11-10-10!
