Well after 18 hours of labor, we did it!
I went in to be induced on tuesday. They started the pitocin at 1pm and the contractions kicked in right away. I requested the epidural at 9pm because they were 2-3 mins apart, 60 seconds long and I was only at 2 cm! I fell asleep at 11pm and at 1130 my water broke and I started to feel contractions again They up'd my epidural and Back to sleep I went. Well at 3am I started feeling pain again. The nurse waited until 4 to check me then Boom! 8 cm, and the epidural felt like it was doing nothing
. Oh the pain! Anyway I started pushing a little after 5 and she was born at 645am. 7lbs 10 oz. I did tear a bunch though and now have a ton of swelling and pain. Word of advice on that one, when they say dont push, Dont Push! Stupid me. I really couldnt help it, there was a baby hanging out of me!
She is beautiful! I cant explain. I miss her when she sleeps.
Thank you all for helping me through my pregnancy.
