Hello, hello! It's been a while, but guess what?! Gavin is finally here!
I was induced the 22nd around 6:30pm and delivered my lil G the 23rd at 8:55pm.
I went in at only 2cm. I really was hopeless. I was so sure I was gonna have C-section. I was terrified. Doctor kept checking me and nothing was really happening. But OMG when the Pitocin kicked in, I wanted to die. DIE. It was extremely painful. I don't think I have ever cried that much. Of course I immediately requested the Epidural.
It took about 15 minutes to kick in, but when It did, I felt immediate relief. I was able to relax and fall asleep. Doctor then came in to wake me up to check me. Once again I was hopeless, but then I hear him say "okay she's ready she's 10cm plus 1, this baby is ready to come out" I cried of joy because I knew I was about to have my baby boy in my arms. I just looked into Kevin's eyes and held his hand while my mom held one of my legs up (it was numbed).
I remember Kevin saying, "I can see his head! He has hair!" And I was in pain but happy that it was getting closer and well, it took me exactly 25 minutes to deliver my baby. He was placed in my arms. He was so plumped and so clean. I was a crying mess. I am so blessed. I have the perfect man in my life and now my perfect little boy. I look at him and I can't believe he's mine. I just can't get enough of him.
So how am I doing now? Well, you know how people say "get your rest while you can because once the baby comes he'll keep you up all night" For me, that's a negative. Gavin has been great. He is such a good boy. What's been keeping me up all night is the pain. Yep PAIN. It continues. I'm about to get TMI on you so if you don't like it, peace out!
During delivery I teared and had to get stitches. I also got some cuts on my labia. It has made me miserable. I hate peeing. It burns so bad. I have cried pretty much everyday. Hurts to sit and walk. I CANNOT wait to feel good again. Until then I'll be on my pain killers and enjoying my precious Gavin.
So there you have it. My Baby story.
I always hear everyone talk about the great experience they had, but they never talk about the aftermath.
The loves of my life.
