Everly’s Birth Story

December 10th 2017- 40 weeks and 1 day pregnant. It was 9:15pm and we ( Daniel, Mom, and I) were heading to the hospital to have a baby. I had been dilated to a 1 for the past 4 weeks and hadn’t progressed so my doctor decided to plan an induction for December 11th. She wanted me to come in the evening before to start the cervix softening medication so I would be ready for Pitocin by the morning. We got to the hospital at 9:30pm to check in. By 10:00 we were all settled in the labor and delivery room, which was so nice and very roomy, and met my nurse for the evening. Her name was Zorah! She was so nice and put up with me being a baby about the IV! At 11:00pm we started the medication which is a tiny pill that they insert right up next to your cervix. She also gave me an Ambien, told me to get some rest and said that we would start the second dose at 3:00am.

A little before 3:00am my nurse came in to check and see if I had made any progress and said that I was dilated to a 3! That night, before she gave me the medication, she warned me that the medication could cause cramping but she said I shouldn’t expect too much dilation because I was only at a 1. She seemed very surprised and said that they wouldn’t be giving me another dose and would just keep checking to see how I progressed through the night. I guess my body just needed a little kickstart, they no longer needed to give me Pitocin in the morning because I was in active labor. She mentioned that the next morning around 7:30 they had a patient coming in for a C-section and asked if I wanted my epidural before then. I said absolutely! Anyone who knows me, knows that I am a big baby when it comes to pain! Shortly after that, the contractions started to get a lot stronger and definitely more painful. Sleep was no longer an option at this point. I am so grateful for my amazing husband who was so loving and took such great care of me while the contractions got stronger and stronger. That part is definitely more of a blur now but at 5:00 I told her that we were going to need the epidural. She told me to give her a 30 minute heads up and I’m so glad I told her when I did because at 5:30 I got the epidural, which is the most amazing thing ever, and she checked me again. She said I was dilated to a 6 and that my water had just broken. I honestly couldn’t believe that I made it to a 6 with no pain medication!

After the epidural I was able to sleep a little more but things definitely picked up quickly after that. At 7:00am my evening nurse left and switched with the morning nurse, her name was Carly and she was so sweet! My doctor also came in to see how I was doing. She checked me and said I was at an 8/9 and that there was meconium in the water! I was no longer tired and everything just started moving very fast! She checked me again at 8:20 and said I was dilated to a 10 +2. She had a patient back at her office, which was a 5 minute walk away, and said she would be back shortly to deliver Baby Girl! She didn’t get back until 9:15 and at that point all of the nurses came in and it was getting very real! I couldn’t believe that I was about to meet my tiny girl! I started pushing and 10 minutes later at 9:44am on December 11th 2017 Everly Mae was born!

Because of the meconium in the water, my doctor said that if she wasn’t crying, she would have to immediately hand her off to the nurses to get checked out. When she came out, she was not crying or moving so she quickly cut her cord and handed her to the nurses. Daniel went and was by her side the entire time. Watching him become a father is one of the most special memories I will have from that day. It was so scary being so helpless laying in the bed, but I am so very grateful for the wonderful nurses at that hospital who took such great care of my sweet girl, they quickly cleaned out her lungs and made sure she was going to be okay. They measured and weighed her. She weighed 8lbs 5oz and was 19 3/4 inches long! About 5-10 minutes after she was born I finally got to hold my baby girl! It was by far the most amazing moment of my life!

We are so unbelievably grateful and feel so very blessed that our sweet Everly is so healthy and is such a sweet baby! We love her more than words could ever describe!
