Around 1 pm on the 2nd of March my back started hurting really bad. I thought it was just regular back pains so I went about my day. Even went out to dinner with my fiancé. We got home around 10pm and my back was still hurting pretty back. Pains were coming 5 min apart but in my back. My fiancé told me we better go to sleep in case we needed to make a trip to the hospital in the middle of the night.
Around 2 am on the 3rd, I couldn’t take it any longer. I woke up Isaac and told him I was going in to get checked. I told him it was probably nothing so just stay home.
I got to the hospital and they checked me. I was 3 cm dilated. They checked me again 20 min or so later and I was almost 4. They determined I was in labor. I called my fiancé and mom and they came up there.
I ended up getting the epidural around 9 am. They only gave me a little dose of Pitocin. I was going pretty good on my own. The epidural made me sick. I vomited quite a few times.
Around 4 or so I was 10 cm and was time to push. I had heartburn so bad, I had to take a drink of water after every push to keep me from throwing up. I still threw up once while I was pushing. I pushed for 3 hours and my beautiful daughter was born at 6:54 pm. As they laid her on me, I was in complete awe.
