She's Here...

My heart is so full of gratitude and love (and breast milk) he he he... Our baby girl has finally arrived. So here is the story in detail.
It all started Sunday night. Our friends Andrew, Nat, Will and Kate came over to watch Willow and then play a little Solitare frenzy and we were sitting on the floor and thats when contractions started not bad at first I was surviving just uncomfortable. All through the night I was in pain... The next morning I started to keep track of contractions and they were going about every 4,5,7 and then 12 min. Then it would get harder and shorter. Ry and I both weren't sure what to do so by 2:30 in the afternoon we went to the hospital... They checked me and said I was still at a one and that it could stay that way for another week. Talk about Depression I was in so much pain and was about ready to explode so they sent us home. We went in and took a nap and then when I woke up the contractions were even more intense I was so pissed and tired because there was no way I could make it another week. My dear friend Tonya came over to the house and I just started crying I was so miserable I didn't know what to do. She left and then we were sitting on the couch. Ry called my mother in law and her and Kiss my sis. came over and had Cafe Rio in hand. She showed me how to breath during contractions which was a major blessing. Kiss started timing them. It was like every 2,3,1,3,3,2, minutes and they were lasting about a minute and a half. My mother in law said if you get in the tub and are still having contrations that this was the real deal. So I got in the tub and THANKFULLY they kept coming. So we made the call and they said come on down. So off we went to the hospital again. We arrived and they hooked me all up. Checked me again and I was Dialated to a 3 can you believe it I was thrilled she monitored me for a few more minutes and then, Kim our nurse came in and said I've seen enough lets get you admitted. It was for real now and I was ready. Ry and I both looked at each other and it was game on. RY by the way was amazing through the whole thing I have never needed him more then that night. Every time I would get weak minded he was right there to Coach me and encourage me to be strong. I love him so much and would never want to go through this whole experience with any one but him. He is so great, and he did everything I needed him to do. Thumbs pushing in my back and all and one point he thought he tore a tendon in his hand from pushing in my back so hard and for so long. Kind of made me giggle but only for a second until the next contraction:) This started at about 10:00 o clock may I remind you that I had been having contractions since Sunday. I was so done. I walked thehalls for hours, we called mick when they admitted me and she started down I wanted her to be there so bad she finally got there sometime early Tuesday morning and I was so thankful to see her. Steph was amazing and was there the whole time too. Holding my head telling me to keep going. Kiss was rubbing my feet and doing the same. Mom and dad wright were there and My mom and Jess. and sat in that bed and leaned against it and peed fifty times until I had had enough at 5:30 I had it, give me the epiderhal I had planned on going natural the whole time. But enough was enough after that many hours of hard labor I was done. And I was stuck at a 6 for the past two hours. I was so tired and hurting like mad. The epiderhal was placed and then it was a little calmer and I actually fell asleep for a little while. Except the cathader hurt like hell the whole time. I kept asking them about it and they told me to push the button for more drugs. I only pushed it once. Cause I didn't want to be numb forever... Well I was stuck then at a 7 for a good few hours the new nurse Patty came in and Rolled me on my side. And within 20 min. I was at a 10 and ready to go. WOW here she comes. So they got the room ready and I started pushing. It was just the nurses for the first 6-9 contractions of pushing and I could feel it all Ry had to keep reminding me to breath becease my face was purple. I've never pushed so hard then the Doctor came in and had me push. Like four more contractions and then our girl was here. The minute they placed her in my arms it all went away the pain, the stress, the madness. I was the happiest little mommy in the whole world. She is so beautiful and PERFECT in every way. I can't stop starring at her. I have never felt so blessed and close to My husband and my Heavenly Father. What a great experience I'm not sure how many times I want to go through it but it was worth it:) I tore to a 3. which feels great!!! Ha ha ha--- anyways so there is the story. Oakleigh is here. All 8 lbs 13 oz. of her and she was long too 21 1/2 inches. and she looks just like her daddy. Hopefully this post makes sense I have so many thoughts going through my mind. But there is the jist of the story Well I will post pictures soon but for now you can go to micks blog, shells and Kiss's to see pictures of her. Thank you guys for all being there and for experiencing that with us it was so special. And to my coach, and Husband I love you more than anything. and the our sweet girl Oakleigh Welcome to the World!!!!
