The anestesiologist checked on me since I was induced, and 3cm or something. The Pitocin really made my contractions unbearable, so he got the supplies and I had my epidural in less than 10 minutes of saying I wanted it.

I thought I knew how to push, but I was not using the correct muscles! I was using my low tummy and lower muscles, and they wanted me to bear down like a BM. Finally after a few times of them saying, "Like you are pooping!" ha ha, I decided Well, I will show them like I am pooping! and so I did. And yeah, I did that too, lol. But it pushed Elliott right on down and out! I didn't REALLY feel like I was truly pushing until I was pushing his shoulders out though. Then it was like my body said, "Oh, you mean like THIS" and he was out.
