    Red face My Most Memorable Event

    My Most Remember Event

    I can still remember it, like it was yesterday. Nov. 24, 1999 was the day I had my baby girl
    Janera. It all started about 2 am, when I first started having pains. I went to the bathroom because
    of all the pressure I was feeling down below. Look down and there it was blood everywhere. I
    said to myself ok this is it. I have been looking forward to this day for awhile now. I didnít want
    to go to the hospital looking like a mess, so the first thing I did was clean myself up and did my
    hair. Of course I shouldíve woke my husband up so he can get ready, but I was to business trying
    to look good. Finally I woke him up and told him itís time. He was so excited, happy and looking
    all crazy in the face trying to hurry up and get himself together. I went into my oldest daughter
    room and began to get her dress. I really didnít want to wake her up, so try sliding her clothes on
    gently without waking her. But when we left the house, the early morning cold air hit her face
    and she woke up anyways. But that was no big deal I drop her off at my sister house and we
    headed straight for the hospital.


    Once we got to the hospital and check in. We were escorted to the room that I am
    supposed to deliver in. I felt a little scare for just a moment, but little did I know there was a lot
    more to come. There was this tall, slim built, Caucasian nurse name Kat, with a heart of gold, she
    greeted us as soon as we came into the room. She helped me into the bed so she could check to
    see how much I dilated. At that time it was only I think 3 cm, and she thought it would be awhile
    before I deliver. So she began to ask me questions upon questions. When she got to the question
    about my water breaking, I didnít know what to tell her.

    I remember maybe three days before; I was sitting at home on the phone with my sister in-
    law talking. When all of a sudden I felt this big gush of water coming down my legs, while I was
    sitting in my bed. I really thought I had just pissed all over myself. So I yell,Ē what the world.Ē
    Then my sister in-law said, ďWhatís wrong, what happen.Ē I was too embarrassed to say what
    had happen. So I just lied and said, Oh I just hit my toe on the nightstand.Ē She thought it was
    funny so I knew if I had told her I had an accident on myself she would have laugh at me again. So I
    didnít say a word about it.


    So after telling nurse Kat about this, she decided to check to see if indeed it was my water
    that broke. I was right, it did, but there was some still left in there. So she had to go ahead and
    finish the job. She went to go get this long stick, thatís what it lots like to me, so she can finish
    the job. She started my IV and then included some Pitocin to help with inducing my labor. After
    sometime has gone by I began to feel so much pain I started begging for pain meds to ease some
    of this pain off. So when nurse Kat came in the room, she put some of this pain in my IV.
    Before I knew it, I started feeling really high or something. I was reaching all in the sky trying to touch stuff that I thought I was seeing. Just like a man my husband (Thomas) was sitting on the couch laughing at me. Iím thinking hey something is wrong I donít feel right. Soon after that, it
    was time to deliver my baby girl.

    Here comes Dr. Treherne walking in smiling saying good morning to everyone. Then he
    turns to me and say, ďMrs. Edmonds is you finally ready to have this baby.Ē I should have had
    her two weeks ago, but I was over due. So I said ďOf course I am.Ē He said ďwell letís get going
    so we all can enjoy our Thanksgiving Dinners.Ē That was easy for him to say, but I knew I still
    had one more day in the hospital.

    So as I closed my eyes trying to prepared myself for this big event in my life. I can hear all
    the noise going on around me. Everyone was running around and getting things that they may
    need. Dr. Treherne began to open my legs and say, ďok its time for you to start pushing.Ē I was
    ready but still felt to try to push. So my husband started grabbing my leg, like he was holding a
    football and yelling in my ear ďpush, push.Ē Iím thinking get the heck off of me. I was in pain
    and he wasnít making me feel any better. So nurse Kat began to massage my other leg and
    explain to my husband how to hold my leg. Iím not sure how much time went by before Dr. Treherne
    told the nurse he wants to do a Vacuum Extraction. This is were they have a round, soft plastic
    cup is placed on the baby head. Suction is created by a pump and then they gently pull the baby
    out. It was too much pain for me when they tried to put the cup in me. So I began to really push
    down hard myself. Because I didnít think I would be able to handle any more pain. Before I
    knew it my baby girl head just pop out and then the rest of her pop out. I was so happy and
    relieved to not have experience the vacuum. I heard Dr. Treherne say, congratulations Mr. and.
    Mrs. Edmonds, itís a girl.Ē She weighs in at 8 pounds, 6 ounces and 22 inches long. I was so tired, that when they laid her on my stomach. All I could say ďHey can someone please get this fat piece of meat off of me.Ē I felt bad after I said that, but thatís how I felt being so tired and all.

    After they cleaned me up and took me to my room. Thatís when everybody I knew wanted
    to come up and see her. I was so tried, all I wanted was to just relax and eat. I was glad that
    everyone understood my feelings and didnít stay too long. The only person I really wanted to see
    was my mother-in-law. She fixed me a big plate for my Thanksgiving Dinner. After that I called
    for the nurse to bring in my baby girl. I held her in my arms and we both went right to sleep.
