Happy Birthday Kiale- Part 1 a Birth Story

Monday, September 21, 2009

In exactly 55minutes my sweet oldest child will be a year older. Kiale turns 6 today!! Happy Birthday Kiale!! So in honor of Birthdays, here is his birth story!

>September 20th 2003 was spent like any other Saturday for KS and I. Pack up grab the dog and head to the cabin for the weekend. Little did we know this was going to be far from any normal weekend. That Saturday was spent with KS fishing and me floating around in the tube in the lake out the cabin. We decided to go have dinner in Gainesville and grab a movie from Wal-Mart while we were out. We ate dinner at Captain D’s and proceeded to get the Gangs from New York movie and head back to the cabin. By the time we got back it was 11:00, and after watching the movie it was right around 1:00am. While at the shop with my husband the week before an older lady, had seen me and told KS and I how to get the baby here sooner. She said that if we really wanted him to come out soon to go home and “have some fun” before we went to bed…well KS and I decided to try out her advice, and needless to say it worked… well! At 3:30am I woke up with some pain and looked at the clock to see what time it was (an annoying habit of mine….) it happened again at 4:30, and then at 5:00. By the time I woke up at 5:00 I was having severe back pain, with intense pressure. I kept thinking I had to go to the bathroom… boy was I wrong. It took me about another 15 min to realize that hey I am in labor… and severe back labor at that. I finally got KS out of bed, not an easy task considering I think we got to sleep around 2:00… By the time we realized that it was real labor we had to decide what to do, leave the dog there at the cabin or take the 30min ride home and leave the dog there. Well me being stubborn and thinking well the contractions are only 10min apart we will have plenty of time to make it home and to the hospital, not realizing just how close we would actually be cutting it. We called my mom to have her meet us at the house by that time it was right around 6:00. Once we got to the house at right around 6:30 my contractions were 5min apart and getting stronger and way more painful with all of the back labor. Mom met us there and we called the Dr. the contractions jumped to 3min apart, and imagine that they told us to come on in!! By the time we reached the hospital at 7:45 my contractions were 2min. apart. The nurse checked me and I was already 7 cent. dilated, but there was a slight problem. I hadn’t preregistered with the hospital; I was planning on doing during my next appointment since I still had a week before my due date of September 27th. So my mom had to run down stairs and register at 7:45ish on a Sunday morning. Once the Dr. finally got there and checked me he broke my water. All the while they are trying to fill out all of my paper work that I was supposed to have finished. Well about 8:40 rolled around and I had to push, they were still trying to fill out my epidural paperwork b/c of the horrible pain I was in. Needless to say the epidural never happened and Kiale made his grand appearance at 8:55am September 21st 2003, after 5 hours of labor. He was 7lbs 15oz and 201/2 in. long, and looked just like his daddy. He even had strawberry blonde hair. He was perfect.
