“Hey my name is Chelsey, i am 19 years old and this is my birth story, i was induced on Wednesday august 7, 2013 at 1am. my dad took me to the hospital, my husband was with us of course, the ride was very long it felt but it was only 20 mins away from me. i was really scared about giving birth, my nurse started my IV and checked me, put me on the monitors (which my son hated) then about thirty(30) mins later she started my Pitocin. every thirty(30) min she would up the speed. being induced i was hoping for a fast delivery well i was way wrong. my son was really stubborn, he was to high up and didn’t want to drop down.




I started having contractions i guess around 3 or 4 am, they really didn’t phase me unless my son kicked, i had a few strong ones where i should have screamed but i didn’t, i leaned on my mom dad and amazing husband for support, he even laid in the bed with me so i could sleep some, about 8:30 am or so my obgyn had come in to check me, i was not dilating and he talked about sending me home, i thought he was nuts, well a few seconds later he broke my water, but my son didn’t want to drop down, my doctor looked at me and told me that i could sit in labor all day with no progress on dilating, or i could have the c-section we had already talked about being a possibility, i cried and called my mother in law and was really scared.


About twenty mins later i guess it was close to 9:30-9:45 am they took me to the OR.. i cried the whole way, holding onto my husband, they put me in the room and thank god for amazing nurses, they gave me the spinal, i cried for my husband asking where he was, then he come in the room, kissed my forehead and told me it was gonna be ok, i had a reaction to something they gave me to drink prior to the OR and i was sick the whole operation, dizzy and nauseated.


At 10:23 am my son was welcomed in to this world by me and my husband, it took him a min to cry and i kept asking if he was ok, my husband was telling me to relax he was ok. a couple mins later i seen my baby boy, then fell asleep thanks to finagrin (anti-nausea) in my IV. when i come to about 2 or 3 pm they brought my baby in the room to me and i was so happy that he was here and healthy.I really just wanted my daddy or my husband with me, I’m an only child thru my daddy and i am a daddy’s girl .


When i looked at my baby boy i was one proud mommy. To this day i still am, he is a wonderful 10 week old baby, weighing 12 lbs 21 3/4 in long, clean bill of health <3 he is my world, i wouldn’t change a thing about it. i am stronger than i thought i was thanks to him. and that is my story.
