MY labor story!

On June 26th 2013…. I was feeling contractions every 10 minutes. Since I am a first time mom I did not know what to expect when going into labor. I was already 6 days past my due date and desperate to have my precious baby here on earth with me. I arrived at Northwestern Memorial Hospital that day at about 11pm. I walked into the triage registration and waited until my name was called. The nurse then came in told me to get into the hospital gown so that I can be checked. The first thing they did was a pelvic exam to see if my water or amniotic sac had broken (which it had not). Then they checked to see how open my cervix was. Surprisingly it was 1 cm 60 percent effaced. I was happy thinking wow today may be the day I have looked forward to for 10 months!  Well the nurse came back and said we want you to walk around for 2 hours! I looked at my husband and said lets go home!! I don’t know how they expect me to walk for two hours in pain its ridiculous. So we went home and I dealt with more frequent intense contractions until 8 am on June 27th. My body felt exhausted and something signaled me to go in again because the contractions were 3 minutes apart. Again I went through the whole procedure another time except this time I was 3 centimeters. At that instant they said they were going to admit me to labor and delivery because I was indeed in labor! They put IVs in my arm and monitored the baby’s heartbeat. I was in triage waiting for a room for about 4 hours. Finally transport came and took me to the 8th floor! The view of my room was fantastic! I had a corner birthing suit so I could see the lake and the city. I was checked again at 1 pm to find out I had progressed  to 5 centimeters! I was stunned my heart was racing because finally I was going to meet this little person who had already changed my life tremendously! My mother in law and mom were there along with my husband and a good friend of mine. They were all playing the guessing game of when the baby would be born. As time passed by everyone was getting pretty tired. I was checked again at 5 pm and had gone up to 6 cm. I felt frustrated because although I did get the epidural it wore off on one side and I couldn’t drink fluids. Everyone was shocked but still waited at my side. By 8 my doctor came in and checked me I was still the same but she broke my water! It gave me some hope that I would progress and have her that same night! I was wrong! With a big scare of my baby’s heart beat dipping a whole team of doctors/nurses came in the room like if I was in danger. That was a false alarm but for the rest of the night I couldn’t focus on being calm I was worried sick to my stomach. Well June 27th passed and I was still waiting for the arrival of my daughter. It was 3 am the next time I was checked and was 8 cm. The nurse kept telling me that I would have to feel “pressure” and that’s how I would know its time to push. I laughed because helllllllo an epidural numbs you how was I going to feel pressure?? Anyway everyone at this point had camped out on the hospital floor because it was obvious I wasn’t going to have her right then and there. 6 am rolled around my doctor checked me and says oh wow your at 9cm but I still feel cervix all around. So that was good and BAD news. Guess what was next?? An emergency C-Section! Yes after 19 hours of labor I ended up in C-section. As they told me I needed to get a C-section I got so many mixed emotions and was scared! I was also tired. They took me to the surgery room and handed my husband scrubs and a hat and everything he needed to be there by my side. I remember looking up at him as he walked through the door and I saw the nerves and the scared look on his face. He was so quiet all he did was give me his hand and squeezed me almost like he was reassuring me I was going to be ok as long as he was by my side. That made me feel safe. After that I felt the urge to vomit and began vomiting! My poor husband sat there holding a small bucket as I vomited all over his hands he didn’t mind at all he laughed it off. I’m so lucky to have a man like him in my life. well after that I just heard them say Happy Birthday to my precious little girl and once I heard her cry I began to cry. They called my husband over as they cleaned her up and I followed him with my eyes. He was so nervous. They put her in his arms for the first time and he says that’s the most nervous feeling ever because he never held a baby that new. Well it was time to transport me to my room they finally placed the baby in my arms and I immediately fell in love. The love I feel for my baby is unexplainable. Only mothers can understand. I am so excited to raise this baby and watch her grow up.

Shocking Update….

Hey everyone! Im back! I havent been on in a while. Hmmmm where do I start?? Ok lets start back in June.

Well my husband and I separated because we simply werent getting along. Things got to stressful so we decided to just take a break and thought it was going to be for good. Well to help ease the pain I booked a trip to Miami alone.I was in Miami June 28th for about a week. I was so depressed that I lost a ton of weight and looked very skinny.  I was pobably the skinniest Ive ever been 114 pounds.Thank god a good girl friend of mine met me in Miami! This made me forget about my troubles and we focused on partying! We went to all the hot spots in Miami like Cameo, Mangos, Space and a few other clubs. I had a BLAST!

 When I got back to chicago in July I was still partying and got into hanging with the wrong crowd. I started hanging with the wrong type of girls and ended up cutting them off. I was HATED for that one. I dont think these girls understood I just wanted to greive the breakup alone. They took offense to me not wanting to hang out with them and I made enemies. One of the girls got mad becuase I became friends with a guy she liked. 

 I left to California in August for another week to visit family and party some more with my girl who met me in Miami. We definitely took over the West Coast the way we took over Miami.  I was at Disney Land when I started recieving threatning phone calls from the fake bitches I used to hang out with. I didnt have time to deal with it so let it go to voice mail. 

When I got back to Chicago my girl actually flew out to visit MY hometown the way I visited hers. We partied some more and more but one night I was walking out of the club me and her were hosting and the enemies pulled up to my car which was parked and tried to jump me. I had a few guys with me who didnt let them touch me. Once these animals realized I couldnt be touched they took empty Vodka bottles and threw them at my car. They did this in front of a club where  I was very well known. I let that horrible event fly as I am not a vengeful person and it was on to the next club. 

 I then flew out to Miami again and come to find out one of the girls car was burnt! I mean FRIED CRISPY! lol well isnt Karma a bitch! After that event because of the concerns of my family I layed low for a while and cooled out on the party scene as my mother and famiy were convinced the animals would seek revenge! 

 I stood home alot because my brother who battled cancer for 19 years was at his end. September 27, 2012 I lost my brother. This changed my life completely! Of course my husband found out my brother had passed and because of the history they had of knowing eachother his family and him payed their respects to my brothers funeral. Seeing my husband for the first time in three months was like falling in love at first sight. I realized no amount of partying and no guy could fill in the empty gap I had of missing and wanting to be with my husband. 

He walked up to me and gave me a hug and it was such a meanngful hug. At that moment I knew he missed me as well. That same night we went home and made love! Probably the most passionate love we have ever had and continued seeing each other. My birthday was October 4th and that we weekend we wen to a bar in Rosemont called Adobe with some of my friends. I was feeling weird i felt like none of my clothes fit and I was just not myself. 

That weekend we went to the movies with my mom and I never ate popcorn the way i ate that popcorn. My mom suspected something I would NEVER suspect! Yep….She asked me if I was pregnant!!! I said HELL NO! Theres no way! I was in denial. 

October 18th my mom again asked me if I had gotten my period I then realized oh crap im a week late! We went and bought a First Response Pregnancy test. We actually bought 3! I took all of them and yes they came out POSITIVE! Yep thats right this sexy lady right here is expecting her first baby. Its crazy how life works but I wouldnt change it for the world. Here is a pic of my baby! Im due in June!
