birth story of Ayva Annette...
butterfly0 posted:
We went in to a check up on my due date (july 28th). Due to previous complications because i was almost 3 cm dilated she sent me down to labor and delivery. She induced labor with the water balloon. By midnight i was 5 cm. At 7 they started the contraction meds and gave me an apidural. By 8:30 I was 8 cm. They had to cut the meds off because my doctor was assisting the only other doctor with a c-section and they didnt want the baby to come without an available doctor. They got it cut back on around noon. At 1:34 I had my precious Ayva Annette. Born on July 29th she was 7 pounds and 1 ounce and 20 1/4 inches long with a head full of dark hair! I am going to miss this board because it has gotten me through a lot! Thank you guys and good luck!!!
