Continued from 10/24/10.  Last I mentioned how amazing the epidural was!  I had a button I could push every 20 minutes if I started to feel pain again.  If you're a modest person that all goes out the window during childbirth.  Every hour my nurse came in to check me to see if I'd dilated and empty my bladder.  At first people were diligent about leaving the room; by the end my visitors didn't seem to care, nor did I, about them leaving the room.  I couldn't feel my legs so it was as if I didn't even have anything private down below anymore.  My husband was still uncertain about people being in the room for the actual delivery.  He told me he didn't want to decide until right before the moment occurred.  My nurse wanted us to have a 30 minute rest before the "big push" so we thought this would be a good time to discuss the matter.  Both of us decided that people could be there as long as there were boundaries.  He was to have the side next to my bed all to himself.  Anyone else had to stay seated along the far wall so we could have our space.  We still hadn't talked about who would be in there but we had at least accomplished there would be some people in there.  The reason that people were not established was because I started getting the shakes so bad I could not put a sentence together.  I also started to get severe nauseousness.  I thought for sure any minute I was going to puke.  We called my nurse in who said that these symptoms were a good thing!  It meant that my body was getting ready to go into labor.  The other good news was that by 5 o'clock I was finally 10 cm dilated!  Things could finally start progressing now!  To be continued...
