I am Jazzie. I like to be active, enjoying the outdoors with my 2 boys, Caleb and Joel.
Caleb was 8 pounds 10 ounces when he was born, on January 25th 2009. I had him at 38 weeks 5 day. I went into labour with him the day after they stripped my membranes. The morning of the 24th my boyfriend woke me up at noon because I was moaning in my sleep. I was upset he woe me up because I was so tired. So my contractions were very irregular, ranging from 8 minutes to 5 to 2 to 1 then back to 10, and so on. So my boyfrined and I walked up and down stairs, walked around the neighbourhood. So finally I decided I would just go in, they checked me and I was 6 CMS. I was so nervous, I asked if I could just go home. lol. So I walked up and down the hall for an hour, and my doctor asked me if she could break my water, I said yes. Thats when the contractions went to being manageable to unmanageable. Im sure I could have handled them if it had not been for my dad and his wife being in te room, so i diddnt want to stand up, and flash every one. aahaha. Thinking back on it i should have asked everyone to leave.
So after they did leave I was having the urge to push, even though my nurse had all ready checked me, and I was 8 cm. She diddnt want to check me again...so I ended up having the epidural..I only had one does. (SP) and I was told that I could now push. YAY. so i was pushing whenever i felt like it, couldnt feel the contractions...so after 30 minutes i told then i couldnt feel them. so they turned the epidural off, it felt so good to push!! Calebs head almost came out,but the nurse diddnt want to deliver him, i dont know why, so she held him in place while i screamed "wheres the doctor" over and over. finally the doctor came in 5-10 minutes later and delivered him. He was perfect!! I ended up having 11 stitches. my nurse apologized for holding him there, but if she hadnt she said i would ended up with a 4th degree tear.
Now Caleb is a little over 3 years old. He is so sweet and charming,
Calebs little brother Joel was born on July 23rd 2011. He was 11.4 pounds. I had a ultrasound to find out how much he would weigh early in July and they estimated 9.4 pounds :O I was told i would need a c-section. :'( I cried! I went to my family doctor to find out if there was anything he could do to help me deliver naturally he said no. I felt like I was being pushed into a direction I really did not want to go. There was no way out. I felt trapped. So I went to my admitting appointment to get prepped. I went home that evening. Had a really good sleep! SO dropped Caleb off at daycare, and we were off to the hospital. The nurses started prepping me, and they asked me why I was having a c-section i explained to them because i was having a "big" baby and they were worried that he would get stuck. Well the nurses told me they think i would be able to give birth naturally and to not let my doctor bully me, so I decided to stand up to him, so my doctor let me go. (this doctor was not the one I chose, I originally had a midwife, but they thought I was high risk...) So that night SO went home and "Had fun" to try and get me into labor, and it worked sorta...My water broke. So I went to sleep. Woke up the next morning and called labor and delivery. They told me to come in. They checked me and I was 5 CMs. Woo Hoo!!! So I explained to the nurses of the situation, and they fully supported me as well as the on-call doctor. YAY. They said take my time to decide. So I prayed about it. And I thought, maybe it would be a good idea to have a c-section. Why would i put the health of my kid in danger. So I was prepped for the c-section, had the spinal, which was surprisingly not that bad. So you know the "typical" c-section, only takes the doctor one push to get the baby to come out, well that diddnt happen for me, it took about 5 or more pushes to get him out...as he was getting stuck. :O imagine if i would have tried to have him naturally. :O :O :O And all you can hear from the doctor is UH OH. Finally he was out...and it hurt me the way they had to push on my diaphram. OCH. Can you say bruises. The doctor said I think he weighs 10 pounds...nope...11.4 pounds.
All that matters is he is healthy and happy. I couldnt ask for more.
The next day when my doctor came in, DR> Linton. She said, "next time you have a baby, lets make sure its way smaller." Couldnt have said it better my self. ahaha.
So, I am in the process of trying to figure out what I want to do with my career. What career I should enter into. X-ray and lab technician, teacher, daycare worker. Theres so many I cant choose.
I am also in the proccess of eating healthy and trying to lose this baby weight. I hope I can lose it by July. 9 months on 9 months off.
My SO and I have been together for over 6 years. We are high school sweet hearts. <3
