    Default Now officially a London mom

    no more cheating for me =D
    Thanks for all the thoughts ladies

    Monday morning at 3 am I got up for my usual milionth pee of the day. When I was climbing back into bed my water broke. I hoped right off the bed and told mr.suites. Poor guy was so confused for a few seconds
    So it was gushing for a bit and I paged the midwife covering for mine (she is still out of town) and she said she would be right over to make sure my water had broken
    She arrived a little after 4am. Checked me and said it was definitely broken but I was not dilated at all.
    They were going to have to induce me but that there was no reason to go to the hospital before 9am because thats when the doctors changed shifts.
    I got a call at 9 from another midwife (the one who was covering could not do the induction) and she said she would meet me at the hospital at 10am
    We got there and got all set up....it took 4 tries to get in my iv, which left me with some pretty nasty bruises. But then they started me on oxytocin (sp?) and they had to give me the GBS antibiotic because I hadnt had the test yet.
    Things were happening pretty slowly and at about 2pm she checked and I was 2-3 cm dialted. They decided to turn up the drip then.
    OMG then I was getting contractions about every min. And they were strong...I consided myself to have a high pain threshold...I was so wrong. I was given the nitrous gas and it did nothing. After 2 hours of this I aksed for an epidural. Which the midwives that were there agreed was probably the best thing to do
    They checked me again at this point and I had gone from 2-3 cm to 6cm in the two hours.
    After the epidural things went really smooth (he he he) And the contractions were still strong, I could still feel them a bit. At 6 They checked me once more and showed mr.suites the hair on the top of her head LOL. She was more than ready to come out.
    After 2 hours of easy pushing (and watching wheel of fortune LMAO) Cortana Claire G was born. At 8:00 on the button. 6LBS 13oz
    All fingers and toes are accounted for =D
    She came at 36+1 and they had a team there in case there were any issues. She was healthy and they did the sugar tests and all came back fine

    We are home now and I am exausted...but don't want to sleep, I am enjoying her way too much (but I will...don't worry no exaustion for this mama)
    My mom is flying in tonight for 5 weeks, I am so excited to have the help.
    Loki is being so good about having something new in the house. He is sleeping by her and is really being good and calm.

    I will try to attach a pic of her from yesterday =D
    Thanks again for welcoming me to the community early, you guys were so much help with all my pregnancy questions. Im sure I will have even more now that I am a mom.
