Ryan Joseph's Birth Story - June 24th 2008

Since the little prince is taking a snooze I figured I'd jump on the computer and jot down our long road to parenthood.

For those of you who may not know or remember, at 33 weeks I was put on strict bedrest. I was diagnosed with pregnancy induced hypertension and was being watched carefully for pre-eclempsia.

I was scheduled for an induction on June 24th. June 22nd (the Sunday before), DH and I went to bed and usual. After laying there for about 10 minutes I realized I had just experienced my first contraction. They were a steady 5 minutes apart lasting 1 minute long.

Since they weren't too sever, after a few hours of clocking them I figured it would be smart to try to get some rest.

I woke up Monday morning (June 23rd) and went to my scheduled NST at Madonna in Babylon. Contractions had subsided drastically so I figured it was just a false alarm. During the NST, Baby P. was not moving well and my contractions were mild. They decided to call my doc and recommended the induction move up the day and advised me to go home, get my stuff, head to the hospital. While they were on the phone with my doc I felt a slight trinkle of wetness. I said to the nurse "I think my water broke".

DH and I got to Huntington Hospital by 12:30. They hooked me up to the monitors and my blood pressure was elevated even higher than usual.

My OB came in to check my cervix and dilation and I told him I thought my water broke. He checks, sure enough it did! Baby P. was really coming! I was 100% effaced but only 3cm dilated.

Pitocin started. I labored naturally (no pain meds) all the way to 10cm. At 10:15pm we were ready to push. I pushed for 2 and a half hours and made 0 progress.

OB decided it was time for a C-Section.

My OB had to deliver one other baby then it was time for me to go into the OR. About 2 hours later we were up.

C-Section wasn't bad at all. I don't really remember feeling any pain or pressure but I was also pretty tired from labor.

Ryan Joseph was delivered Tuesday, June 24th 2008 at 3:25am. Ryan weighed 9lbs 3oz and was 22in tall.

Turns out Ryan was what they call "sunny side up" so he got stuck in the birth canal. They said I could have kept pushing and eventually he would have came out, but we have no regrets with any of our decisions.

Without further adieu - some pics of our prince charming:
