My First Blog Post…Grab some tea….or Vodka and Enjoy!

So this was me January 14th, 2017 in labor with my first baby. Β Let me just start off by saying I am NOT one of those women who loved being pregnant. I really wish I was because then it might have made my pregnancy more enjoyable. I can’t complain though since I actually had a very easy 9 months. I love how people feel the need to tell you their worst horror story of their pregnancy….No, seriously! Because I rather be prepared for the worst and it end up being rainbows and unicorns. Let me just take you into my fun day of labor, shall I πŸ™‚

On January 13th I had a doctor appt at 8am that morning. Which was actually her due date and happened to be on a Friday, but that didn’t bother me any because the number 13 is actually one of my numbers πŸ™‚ Any who, I went in for my appt with my husband (which thankfully he was there because I am such a baby) and he checked to see how far I was dilated which was 1 cm…whoo whoo! So while he had his hand up my coo-ka he also decided to take it upon himself to strip my membranes, which I had no idea what that was, but it sounded painful and WAS painful! At 40 weeks I was more scared of going into labor and the pain of it than I was uncomfortable. I always hear women talk about how they are sooo ready for the baby to come out! Yea, like I said…I wasn’t ready for all that. She could’ve stayed in there another month and I would be ok with it. So, after I left the hospital my husband went to work and I went to Harris Teeter to get some sandwich stuff…umm, what the hell was that? Oh, a contraction! Ok, so it wasn’t that bad but definitely uncomfortable. Those contractions started a little before noon and came every 10-15 min for the rest of the day. Around 1am the next day I called the nurse because I was in pain and why the hell not. She tells me to wait til they get to 5 min apart consistently for an hour! OMG! I was at 10 min apart and in pain ALL day! So what did I do? Yep, I waited…told my husband to get some sleep since I wasn’t able to and there was nothing he could do to help. They started to get 5 min apart around 2am and stayed that way til I woke my husband up and told him we needed to go to the hospital NOW! It was so painful! And I needed an epidural, like yesterday! So, we get to the hospital around 5:30am January 14th and I seriously could barely walk and made crazy noises with every contraction…I had no shame anymore. That flew out the window along with any dignity I had. I was 4 cm and my water broke while I was laying in the bed at the hospital. I at first thought I may have peed myself, but luckily it was my water that broke. Whew! Not that I would’ve cared anyways. After all, I was in too much pain to care. They move me into the labor room and then an angel walked in! Yes! It was amazing! He was carrying a needle with some miracle juice in it and stuck it in my back and WOW it was AMAZING!!! Yes, I am talking about the epidural. How anyone goes without drugs is beyond me! More power to ya if you can do it drug free! You are Strong! Not me, I’m a weak little baby that thinks she’s dying when she has a fever of 101 and I am perfectly ok with that. Not everyone can be wonder woman and smile while pushing a watermelon out of a lemon πŸ™‚
