|Our room was huge!|
My contractions were 4-6 minutes apart all night. I would have a contraction that wasn't too bad, and then I would have one that I thought was going to kill me. It was kind of weird, but I was thankful for relief every once in a while!
The nurse was suppose to come in at 4:30 so I could get ready for the induction. 4:30 came and went and she hadn't come back in. I asked Britt to go get her. I was in a lot of pain. She finally came in and checked me. I was 7-8cm! I immediately asked if I was going to be able to get my epidural. She said, "Yes, I am going to go call right now." My contractions were getting stronger and stronger. I remember thinking that if I didn't get my epidural, I was going to die. There was no way I could push this baby out without an epidural!
I don't remember what time the anesthesiologist finally came in, but it was probably around 5:30. By 6:00 I was feeling much better! The day nurse came in a little after 7:00 and told me they were going to wait to break my water until after my doctor finished her first surgery. Well, about 5 minutes later, I started to feel major pressure and a little bit of pain. Britt called the nurse back in. She checked me and said I was 10cm and she could feel her head! Needless to say, Mary McKinley was coming SOON. They doctor broke my water at 7:52 and Mary McKinley was born at 8:01!
