Here are all the details....
Date I actually wrote Monday's post about the contest being closed-- March 19th
Date the baby was actually born-- March 21st. You gotta love being induced. It's all scheduled. Beautiful. **NOT NESSIE TOTALLY WINS ON THE DATE** (email me-- schriftstellarin (at) hotmail.com)
Time I was supposed to go to the hospital-- 7:30 am
Time the hospital called saying not to come in-- 6:15 am (They totally woke me up, too.)
Number of women in labor at said time preventing the hospital from taking me-- 7
Time the hospital called back to say come in anyway-- 8:10 am
Time I actually got to the hospital-- 9 am (They said the nurse would be there in 40 minutes, so I didn't figure I needed to hurry.)
Time the pitocin started running through my veins-- about 9:35 or 9:40 am
Time Baby J was born-- 12:52 pm. That's right, labor lasted about 3 hours.
Amount of time between the epidural fully taking effect and starting to push-- Um, like none. In fact, I still have a sore area on my stomach from where it took effect last.
