September 12th 12am I was having routine contractions that were fairly painful so I called the doctor. She said she wasn't sure if I was far enough along or not. So I said I wasn't sure if I would go in or not but that I probably would. She said okay she'd tell them I'm coming. I thought about it and decided I wouldn't go in quite yet. So we go to bed and just as we fall asleep my water breaks. Time to get up and actually go. I call the doctor again and tell her what happened and she said she thought I was going in. So we pack up and head in.
5am they put me in triage and I am measured at 4cm dialated and my water has broken so they transfer me to a delivery room. They get me all corded up and measure me, I was at 5cm.
7am They come to put my epidural in. Ron is supposed to hold my hand but he's so afraid of needle that he stood there and watched. It made him feel sick. After awhile they come and check on me. The epidural was way different feeling than last time. I still could feel my legs but they were very heavy. I was also feeling the contractions but they weren't really painful. The nurse measured me and said I was about a 6 and that my water wasn't broken all the way. So she goes and gets the doctor and he breaks my water. (3rd time I had my water "break")
At one point Kendall was sitting there and she said something was dripping off the bed. So she called the nurse and they came in and apparently my water had another release of fluid. So my bed was completely soaked as was I (couldn't feel it) and the floor.
9am The doctor came in to measure me and I was progressing fast. I was at 8cm, he said I'd be 10 in no time so he'd be back in a bit and I'd probably be ready to push. I was so excited and nervous at this point I couldn't wait to have my baby.
So we waited and waited for him to come back. Eventually we got scared he wasn't coming.
At 10 something am The doctor and nurse come in and he measures me and says its time. So the nurse gets everything out and starts prepping for delivery. The doctor tells me I could probably have the baby before he comes back, then he leaves. I was really confused where he was going since I was having a baby come out of me. He comes back to check on the progress and leaves again.
The nurse then decides its time for me to push, so she explains everything and I start pushing. After 1 push she says to stop that Colette's head is right there. I have alot of questions and none at the same time. I'm so happy to be giving birth to her I wanna push so badly to see her. I'm wondering where on earth the doctor is. What on earth is Ron thinking. What is everyone else thinking. Am I pooping myself. Is it safe to have the baby just sit there. As I was thinking on all these things apparently I was unconciously pushing, which the nurse see's and then tells me to stop :P
Doctor comes back in. They unveil a table of shiny metal things and he gets in the chair to deliver the baby. The nurse tells Ron to support my head so I don't have to. The doctor tells me I can feel her head. So I carefully reach down a little scared then I feel her head and I can't believe it. He then says to push so I start pushing but not with very much effort cause I'm so nervous and excited. He tells me to push harder, realizing that I need to put effort into I push and out comes Colette. The doctor says I can pull her onto my chest so I grab her and heave her onto my chest. I don't even know what to think. She is finally here! She is so beautiful and amazing!
It was quite the experience. I don't think I slept the entire time I was in the hospital. I was just to happy to have her. I'm so lucky to have a boy and a girl. I want to so badly not make any mistakes, although I know I can't but I want to try the best I can to give her a good life.
So its my first weekend from school its nice to be able to sleep in for once. So we went to school wednesday and did waxing I got my eyebrows waxed :) Then Thursday we started Hairstyling. We learned a Fingerwave which is an old 20's style that was popular. Usually when people dress as flappers for halloween they have a Fingerwave hairstyle or wig. Its a pretty cute hairstyle. So we praticed that and then after school I got my hair dyed. Its a dark red and a dark brown color weaved together.
I'm afraid my teachers don't like me cause they are weird. Like I say something and they smile like if they do that I'll leave or they act like I offended them. Ms Carrey was in the lounge and I heard them talking about soy milk and she said she didn't like it. So I said you don't like soy milk? She got offended and said No but you can like it if you want I have my own tastes and you have yours. I was scared after she said it. Like I was supposed to apologize or something. Not to mention she is always have to tell my mom to leave or be quiet. So maybe she is angry at me for that. I dunno maybe she just takes things to seriously. Mom said its because the advanced beginner class is mean and so she is easily upset now. There are 2 sets of people in class right now us and the other students who have like 300-400 they get to go out on the floor at 450.
On Friday we did another Fingerwave just a vertical one instead of horizontal. I got to get a beehive hairstyle which is from the 30's which basically you just put the hair in rollers then after they are done you back come all the hair and the swirl is around to form a beehive. Pretty simple and its cute :)
