It doesn't seem that long ago that we were just two people and now we are three. Let me tell you its been one hell of a journey. After 41 weeks 2 days of wanting the little bundle of joy out, its been a rocky road after. The first few days I worried about Jaundice and might have to admit her to the hospital, the next few days I worried about my life. I couldn't breath and at a week after giving birth, I had to be placed in the hospital for fluid in my lungs. the medication got out about 3 pounds of water weight and I don't have any more swollen limbs! I do have more energy when I have enough sleep. The new blog hopefully will get updated more and more each day at Bella Blog and I will place pictures and other items there as well!

Happy news at 8 they checked and I am 8 CM! Also my OB/GYN MD is on the floor and might be able to deliver me tonight if Bumpy cooperates. So I have something to look forward to if everything goes well.
So around 4:30 I got the epi and now I'm druged up and feeling like my butt, legs and feet feel like they are asleep but I don't reallyfeel the pain like my first dose of pain killers.
Around 1 pm an hour after hubby arrived, I started to have contractions. Small but sharp pain that hurt my head as well as my body. I walked a bit around the hospital floor to see if they were the start of the real deal and they were. At 12 they uped my dose of oxycotin to 15 which jumped started the cottactions I was slowly starting to have. About 2 I called the nurse in to tell her about the pain and how each "wave" I had effected my head as well. She said that she would tell the MD and the MD may check up on me as well. Another hour passed and the nurse assigned to me came back and started to ask me about the pain and if I wanted to have meds. I was like yes please. Because the pain effected my head, she thought I all ready had pain meds but I said no and she saw in my "chart" that indeed I had not requested anything yet. So she got some IV medication and it has been taking the edge off as I lay here in bed but not 100% as I can feel the peaks of the contractions but it's a tad bit easier on my head.
