Once in the second floor we were in an other waiting room for maybe half an hour, and I say maybe cuz I really loose the sense of time hahaha.
The contractions were really bad and I was without any pain relief so at this point I couldn’t be seat anymore and I was screaming and walking all over the room. Bela couldn’t be seat either cuz she was suffering to see me like that and dad too so he went to get a midwife to give me something so she came with a wheel chair and some gas and air. She was cheering me up saying how good I was doing and trying to explain how to use the gas. I always though cheering someone at this point would be useless and cheesy but for my surprise it really helps!, make you feel that they understand I little bit how much pain you are feeling and that you’re really trying your best. After maybe 10 to 15 minutes in the wheel chair in the door of the waiting room, she finally took us to another room, I couldn’t walk anymore, I really was on agony so she took me in the wheelchair and went to a room but it wasn’t ready so she took us to another one and finally went to a bed, I didn’t wanna be lying down, but I needed to at least know that that was our room. In that room the midwife start all the monitors for both of us and connect it. After a couple of minutes she said if I want the epidural now cuz I was in so much pain that I was stressing you and myself too much so even when I really wanna do it as natural I could I just couldn’t deal with so much pain anymore so she called the anaesthetist and at 8pm I had an epidural.
For the epidural I had to seat and still stay so daddy was hugging me. Straight after this the midwife had to put a intravenous in my hand but just did a mess the first try and left my hand all soar and had to do it in the other hand, where this time worked. After a couple of minutes and a few more contractions the epidural start to make effect and finally have some relief.
The midwife was monitoring all but after a while she said I was no dilating enough so they had to inject me some hormones and after 4 hours check again. After an hour she left and 2 new midwifes were responsible now, they were students (I agree with that) and really nice. For all this time we were waiting, trying to sleep between contractions that was not that soar anymore but with a weird feeling and your dad eating all the snak I bough for me but couldn’t eat cuz the epidural hahahaha I was so exhausted I can’t even explain! All this time in that room I ask for the lights off so was more relaxing and we had a small fan in one side of the room but I was so cold and my mom too that I asked to turn it off but dad and the midwifes start to be really hot hahahha that’s your Mexican side baby hahhaha…
