Ivy Ruth is here

Ivy Ruth was born September 1st @ 2:14 p.m after a two day induction. The actual labor went very fast though. My water was broken at 11:20 or so a.m on the 1st. Around 1:30 doctor came in to check me and I was at a 5 or a 6. About 10 minutes after he left I felt lots of pressure. I called the nurse and when she checked me I was a 10!!! Dr came rushing back and two pushes later Ivy was here. I had some complications later in the evening though. It seemed some of the placenta was left in and I started hemorrhaging really badly. I had all of the nurses scared as I soaked the bed and left a huge trail to the bathroom. I was given all kinds of medicine. They started me on pitocin again and the dr had to come and remove everything that was left inside. It was painful to say the least. I had a very rough night. Doing better now though. Just glad Ivy is finally here!
