This has been quite the week. I went into work and left to go to my regular appointment with the intent to go back to work after. I honestly wasn't expecting any changes. The assistant took my bp and mentioned it was elevated. When my Dr came in, she told me no more work and wanted me to be monitored due to pre e. If everything was okay then I would go home and report on the 4th for an induction on the 5th. My labs were good, but my bp was high so they decided to keep me then to be induced.
That night, they gave me a pill vaginaly to start contractions. I was 1cm and 50% effaced went I went in. When they checked me again, there was no change so they gave me another of the pill. When they checked me again, I was at 1.5cm and had softened, so they decided to do the Pitocin around 10pm. The contractions had started to get rough, so they gave me some drugs to knock me out. During the early morning, I remember the nurse putting an oxygen mask on me and mentioning it being good on the baby and it did help with breathing through contractions. When they checked me again, I was 3 cm, but Liz's heart rate suddenly went from 140 to 50. I was still pretty out of it from the drugs and it didn't register immediately. I remember moving sluggishly while they yelled at me to hurry onto my side and onto another bed. They rushed me down the hallway and into surgery. Since I didn't have an epi, I was knocked out and she was delivered 8 min later at 6:47 am, 7lbs, 7 oz and 20 in.
I woke up in recovery 45 min later with my husband there and a healthy daughter. I'm still at the hospital and the recovery will be longer, but I am just glad she is okay!
