Phoebe Elizabeth's Birth Story

Phoebe arrived after a questionable NST (dropping fluid and reduced movement), a quick call for early induction (shocked the heck out of us), two days of induction techniques (foley bulb, cytotec and full dose of Pitocin with epidural) including a manual version to get her head out of my hip, right before a c-section call was going to be made. I literally slept for an hour before they were going to give me a c-section and went from 4cm to 10cm during my nap. I think I'm overly uptight. She arrived after five minutes of pushing since I wouldn't let them put a scalp monitor on her - so she flew out and Dr. almost dropped her. No damage to me - she was a small baby and I was determined. She stayed with me the whole time, passed all her tests except her hearing (which is bs, it was just fluid) and II got her home after a day. SOOO happy she's here safe.
