Miss Alyxis Taylor came at one p.m. April 24th, weighing 8lbs 2oz, at 21 in long. I had absolutely nothing for the pain. The scary part was I had no idea I was in labor, and nothing about the process was normal. I was having 20 second contractions every 30 seconds, I couldn't feel a thing until I was 9 cm dilated! I went to the hospital for a consistent pain in my side. They had to tell me I was having contractions and everything. I also sustained 4th degree lacerations and it took the Dr over ten mins to stitch me back up. Not very fun esp since I had nothing for the pain! I had a lot of great support though and her daddy has been the best! I couldn't move very much and they kept me in the hospital for a few days to heal up and he took almost complete care of her so I wouldn't have to pull my stitches to get to her. I changed ONE diaper the whole time I was in the hospital, he took care of the rest!
