Amelie Elizabeth

March 6, 2009 6 lbs 13 oz, 19 inches long

Well it was a LONG LONG day! We got to the hospital around 8 am, was put on monitors and got all ready for the baby! Made ourselves at home and just chilled out for a while waiting for the pitocin to kick in. Then all of a sudden GUSH!! My water broke! Can I just tell you that is the worst thing ever. Sitting in non stop leaking water for hours... yuck!
They checked my cervix again,and I was STILL at a 3-4 cm dilated, so it was still a waiting game. After a couple more hours of being the worst pain of my life I got an epidural, they checked me again, still at a 4..... a few more hours, still at a 4......finally after literally 10 hours being at 4 cm dilated, they told my I may have failure to progress and I needed to consider the idea of a C section. I knew I had 24 hours from the time my water broke before I HAD to get a c section. I told them to give it a little while longer,and then I would decide! So the nurse said that she had a patient go through the same thing, and they turned the pitocin off. And let my cervix and uterus "chill out for a while". Well that worked! They checked me at 12:30 am, and I was at a 6 .... then at 1 am I was at a 10!! I had to lay there and let her drop down a tad since she was so high. Then I really needed to push, so the nurse told me to give some little pushes to get her ready.... well I did, and she "prairie dogged it" as one of the medical students in the room said (prairie doggin it-popped her head out and then went back in to hide) They yelled "STOP PUSHING!!!" So I was cooperative and told them they were happy that my legs were paralyzed or I would have kicked them in the head.
My doctor came in about 10 mins later and got all set up... and I had to wait another 10-15 minutes to start PUSHING. I pushed and out popped her head, and then pushed again, and out popped her body! she was SOOOOO small! I looked at her and told Jake "yea, she is yours!" she looks just like jackson only 4 pounds smaller than Jackson was when he was born! But she has Jakes nose, mouth, ears... I was just a carrier.
The kids came and met her the next day and it was really cute. Lily adores and cant stop kissing her. Jackson was THRILLED and kept saying "oh Mey mey is so sweet, fresh from your tummy!!" Porter could have cared less. BUt wow.. it was amazing how BIG porter got over night! he looks like a giant now! Iam feeling great....... Amelie is doing great. She loves to be held, loves to eat and loves her binky. Life is good!!!

Stubborn little girl.

Ok,well I spent literally ALL day at the hospital with this baby IN my stomach. I just went in for a normal OB appt, accompanied by a Non Stess test (monitor the baby, measure amniotic fluid, and watch baby's heart) Well they found out that this little stinker is BREECH, and STUCK. They were planning on doing a Amnio to check fetal lung maturity because of the health issues that have come with this pregnancy. Well after 4, yes FOUR pokes with a needle that aliens use when they want to suck your insides out.... they could not safely get a pocket of fluid to collect some fluid. So I waived my white flag and told them "I QUIT!". So after I nearly blacked out they doctors decided that there is no safe way of checking..... so they wanted to avoid the chance of a C Section,and attempted to TURN the baby. OH wow....I had so many bad words to say in regards to this procedure. I am pretty tough and have a pretty high threshold for pain. Wow... this was brutal. They were able to turn her, but not head down..... she is now transverse (laying side ways, spine up) and STUCK. So there is nothing they can do, I have to let nature do its thing and MAYBE she will turn the rest of the way. OR, thursday I will be having a c section. So I will be accepting all the help I can get *wink* here are some pictures of what is or went on inside me today.. dont worry, its not really me! =)
We will be updating the blog with pictures on thursday, so keep a look out!!

I now know that pain sucks, and well..... I would not wish this pain upon my worst enemy. This would be good torture for terrorist. Seriously I would have sold my soul to make them stop turning the baby! It will be over soon!
