At 3 pm, I was hooked up to an IV and given magnesium to lower my blood pressure and pitocin to induce labor. At 2 am, my water broke and that's when I finally came to the realization that the baby was coming. I know what you are thinking, "Didn't the doctor's appointment, the walk over to labor and delivery or the night spent in the hospital give me any indication that the baby was coming?" Nope, I was still in denial. The induction process was a long process and not without complications. In the early morning hours, after my water broke and I got an epidural, my oxygen levels dropped and the baby's heart rate dropped when I would have a contraction. So after 16 hours of labor, Dr. Wyatt made the decision that it would be best for the baby and I, if he performed an emergency c-section.
At 8:55 am, on May 27, 2011, we had a GIRL! Ke'alohilani Amelia Jade Sayin was born weighing 8 pounds, 9 ounces and measuring 21.25 inches long.
