We started the day with an 8am pitocin drip.Everything was going well till I started having some bad back pain around noon or so and that is when I got the epidural. That not only helped with pain but also made me more calm. Much appreciated! So everything was just about sitting, waiting and progressing after that! Fenners did really well about dropping down and all and when they told me it was time to push, i was like "woah, really?" Pushing was not fun, but only because I didn't really know how, since I was numb. I started out thinking this is gonna take forever, but once he started coming he started coming so we had to stop and wait on the dang Doc. When he got there it was like he came right out and it was just so shocking. He totally handed him straight to Erik, who was not wearing any scrubs! lol
Then they did some doctoring on my baby with Erik, Julie, Mom and Celie all watching him and Dr. worked on me. I thought it was cool they allowed me 5 peeps to witness birth! It was fun having a cheerleading section and watching their faces and reactions. Erik was a great birth coach ! I was not expecting that!
