I so got to see a baby be born today, and it was amazing!!!

There I was at 9:20 driving to run a ton of errands when my cell rings, and it is my one of my close friends (the one I threw the baby shower for) telling me that she thinks that her water broke. I couldn't do anything at that point, so I told her to keep me updated, and I picked up my IF drugs, took Kent shoe shopping, and went to my laser hair removal appointment all by 11:15. When I got back on the road I called her cell, her friend answered and told me that they had just gotten to the hospital, she was dilated to an 8, 100% effaced, and was feeling like she had to push. So I told them I was about 20 minutes away, and I would be right there. I got Kent some lunch from Wend*'s and got in the room about 11:45. She was pretty upset because they told her no epidural, but they gave her some N*bain to help her out. She was to cute telling me that I was stupid for wanting to do this!! I just laughed at her, and told her if I was stupid then so was she. Her Doc got there at about 12:20, checked her, looked at the nurse, and said "Break this bed down NOW!!!" I was told along with her other friend to grab a foot, so I did. Mary started pushing with her next contraction, and a little head full of hair was right there!! I have to tell you I was mesmerized.... I could not take my eyes off that little head...... 5 pushes and like 2 minutes later little man was born!! I was crying, and ended up getting soaked from all the fluid that followed him out, but hell I didn't care!!! That was just awesome!! He was so tiny and perfect!!! Mary did so good, no tears, nothing!!!! I cannot tell you how much it meant to me to be there, and I told her that, and she hugged me and said that she was so glad that I was there with her!! I had to rush out after that because I had to get home, drop Kent off and get to work, but that just made my day!!! The one really funny thing was that the Crimson Bitch had shown her ugly face that morning, and I SWEAR that every time she had a contraction, I had a cramp!! We were all laughing about that, the nurse said it must have been sympathy pains!! It made my whole day just to have been there for that!!! I have waited 38 weeks for that little guy to be born, and while I am sure that it is nothing like his mommy feels, I am so filled with joy to finally meet him!!!

So, in other news..... Yeah the Crimson Bitch showed, and I was a little confused, so I called the IVF nurse because I wasn't supposed to take my last BCP until tomorrow, so I didn't know what was going on, and if they wanted me to come in early. She told me to just keep next Thursdays appointment, but to stay on the l*pron and all that. I have been so freaking tired from the l*pron and having terrible headaches that I am already over it, and it hasn't even been a week yet. I have cut almost all of my caffeine out and the RE seems to think that isn't helping me with the headaches right now either. UGH, I am really trying to do this cycle right, but I am feeling like HELL right now!! LOL

The cat is doing a lot better, in fact he is right back to his annoying old self!!

Work is exhausting, I love the couple that I work with, but they are really starting to drain the life out of me!! They are very sweet, but have no one else to talk to so, when I come it is like they try to fit in every thought that they had in the last 22 hours since they saw me into the three that I am there!! She even asked me if I plan on still coming if I get pregnant, and hell I wasn't even thinking that far ahead!! I guess that they have just been taken advantage of to many times, and now that they have a good "nurse" (not tooting my horn, but I am awesome at what I do) they are very worried about losing me.... not that I blame them, a lot of the aides that work in this field are pretty damn lazy!!! I hate it, it makes it that much harder for me to be trusted.

We are having a porch built on on the front of our house, and guess when they will be starting?? That's right the week I should be having my ER and ET... so that ought to be interesting. I am praying to God that I don't get OHSS this time because that will mean that I will be laying here listening to them bang on my house while I am in severe pain.... Oh the fun!!!

Well, I am off to bed, it has been another long day, and promises to be another, and another... I will be sooo happy when Saturday gets here!!!!

How awesome. two years ago March 1st, I was also in the labor and delivery room with my sister. It was planned for me to be there. i got to see my nephew born and my sister did awesome, no meds either. But i will say, watching her and watching my 5 lb nephew come into this world cured me of wanting to delivery any children. Adoption is awesome LOL
