Amiyah's Birth Story
On our way to the hospital she has to stop and pick up some coffee (by that time I was starting to get contractions), so I took that time to call my husband and let him know what was going on. Once we made it and I was checked in things were going pretty good. Contractions weren't too bad, I was 3 or 4 centimeters dilated.
At around 4am the contractions were getting so I couldn't really handle them any more, so the nurse gave me half of some pain meds in my IV. She told me to try and nap, so I did (which my dilation hadn't really changed). I woke up probably around 5:20ish and was having horrible contractions so I asked if I could have something for the pain. Of course first they had to check me. Well I was basically completely dilated and was ready to push.
I started pushing around 5:45 or so, the doctor got there when her head was crowning, he ended up having to cut me, then at 6:18 I had my beautiful baby girl! I was very upset at first that I took the pain meds, but in the end I was so very thankful, because my labor wasn't as long as it would have been.
