Mathew Joseph Nixon's Birth Story

I've had cramping and contractions that started on Sunday January 17th. I've made a couple of emergency appointments with my Ob that week. Woke up at 3:30 am on January 26 with contractions that were finally timable. As soon as my docs office opened, I called to get checked again in which they told me to come in right away. Got there and my doc checked me as I was also having a strong contraction. He told me I was 3.5 cm dialated and to head over to L&D at the hospital. We get there and the nurses prepped me and the process continued. That was at 10 am. Doc checked me at 11 am in which I was already at 6 cm. At that point she popped the membrane and in which I asked for an epidural which ended up being a full epidural (wasn't expecting that). At 3 pm Doc came in cause baby's heart rate began to drop, which she explained that happens when baby is there ready for me to push. Sure enough I was at 10 cm and I couldn't feel a thing... how the heck am I going to push if I can't feel anything? During the pushing process my nurse had me cracking up by telling me some wacky birthing stories and I lost my push a few times because she had me cracking up! Alas, 16 mins of pushing and out came my Miracle. MY BLESSING was finally here! Wow, what a set of lungs. My doc puts him on my chest and he quickly quiets down. I looked down at him and we locked eyes and I was relieved . I'm so in love. Born at 3:16 pm , 6lbs13oz. Perfect in every way.
