My Birth Story

Baby's overdue at 40 weeks + 6 Days and I was scheduled for an induction at 12:15AM (01/25).

I came in the hospital at 4CM Dilated at around 3 AM a little doze of Pitocin was started but there was no changes or labor pains at all.

At around 8AM my OB came in and broke my water almost instantly I felt some contractions. They were strong but tolerable. I was check again at 9AM and I progress to a 6. Since then the contractions began to get stronger and stronger until at around 10 AM, it was so intense that I'm starting to doubt myself. Michael was asking me if I need pain meds, although I doubted myself at that moment I stayed firm with my decision to do it naturally.

The nurse came back and check me since I was literally screaming every contractions at that point, low and behold I was a 9 1/2 cm. I told her I really feel like pushing and that the only thing that is making things very painful is because I'm holding off it off and feeling in the contractions. She called my OB and asked me to start pushing..

I started pushing at around 10ish and for some reason pushing really felt good and made the painful contractions go away.

Pushing lasted for almost an hour and at 11:15 AM "Little Miss" came out to this world screaming as they put her on my chest it felt surreal that it's almost as if I'm dreaming. I actually blurted that she's so tiny and My OB, and two nurses both said "No, She's not!"

Riley Mckenzie was Born naturally without any pain-free medication on January 25th.
