Hey everyone!

Damian was born November 24th at 5:15am. He weighed 8lb 2oz.

3pm Thursday I got the gel to try to dilate my cervix, as I stopped dialating after the Foley catheter (actually went back to 2cm vs the 3-4 I was told I was). The gel worked and boy did the contractions hurt - by 7pm I was in agony. When I got back to the hospital at 9:30pm, they ordered me an epidural right away - best thing in the world! It took 20 mins for me to calm down with nitrous oxide and trying to do breathing exercises, to get the epidural - and the first one didn't take - so they gave me a second one (and also stronger medications because I don't freeze properly). I was only 3cm dialated at this point still.

Around 2am they were talking about a possible c section as His heart rate would drop every time I had a contraction, which I was told later he had the umbilical wrapped around his neck gently. But his heart rate stabled out. (7cm dialated at his point)

Then finally 4am I was fully dilated and asked to start pushing - he was born 1 hour and 15 mins later ❤ he is such a sweet little man

Thank you to everyone for commenting and well wishes! Meant so much to me! ❤
