12: Progress | February 28, 2011 At 39 weeks and one day, I went to work having had contractions keep me up all night and was exhausted! I emailed Mike telling him I was going to take a half-day off so I could go home and rest before the inducement at 5:30 am the next morning. I ran by Chic Fil A, came home, took an hour and a half nap, and then played with the dogs in the backyard for about 15 minutes. I was still exhausted and decided to lay down again for a little bit. Within 10 minutes of laying down, at 3:15 pm, my water broke!!! I had been 80% effaced and 2.5 cm dialated for a week. Miss Rylee did not want to wait until March to make her debut!!
13: I met Mike at the hospital at about 4:00 pm They took me to a tiny room where we waited for an hour to move into a delivery room...I was the 13th delivery of the day! A low pressure system had come in the night before :) ...I was 5cm dialated when I received Pitocin...at7cm (7:30 pm) I couldn't take it any longer and called for an epidural!! About 8:15 pm, at 9.5 cm dialation,, My heart rate dropped to 36 and Rylee's t0 60. It was time to push!! Our heart rates picked back up, and after 3 contractions and 9 pushes, at 8:36pm Rylee Michelle Thixton was born! Mike and I welcomed our sweet angel, and she would be our entire world from this day forward!
