    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    Yours in health,

    Short: Adrian was born on July 31, 2011 at 9:54pm - 7lbs 8oz 20 inches and a full head of hair!

    Long: Lost my mucus plug on 7/30 and contractions wee 7-10 mins apart. went to the hospital and they check me and i was only 1 cm so they sent me home to labor some more. the next day i was contracting every 2-3 mins. went back to the hosp. around 2pm. they checked me and i was 5 cm.
    got the epi about 40 mins later and the guy messed up, so i got it twice, but only my left side became numb right away, it took a little longer for my right to get numb. around 7pm, i was 9 cm and the epi wore off!! i was feeling everything anf it was the worst pain ever! my babies head was still high at 9 cm so i think that made the pain even worse. it was to the point were i couldnt even push i was in so much pain, the they gave me a spinal and i felt 100% better, i was 10cm and was pushing to get his head down. this was around 8:30 or so...finally it was time to really push. i thinked i pushed for about 30-40 mins and my beautiful baby boy was born with a full head of hair!!

    life has been amazing! he's perfect
