I was supposed to be induced Dec 4th then it was moved back to the 5th and then again till the night of the 8th. I was upset I had to wait so long so I stopped talking to anyone.

Late December 7th we started watching a movie. During the whole thing I was so uncomfortable and the baby was turning and moving like crazy. The movie ended around 130am and I started to feel contractions but just in my hip so I didn't think it was anything. Finally around 2 I finally told SO that I think I was having contractions. He started timing and they already were 4 min apart. I took a shower and he called the Dr. They said come in right away. Of course it was pouring out and I stepped in a million deep puddles on the short walk to the car.

We got to the hospital around 4am. They checked me and I was 80% effaced and 1.5cm.
540am I was 90% and 4 cm. They also hooked me up to an IV of fluids
I was wanting to try to go natural but by 630 I got an epidural
Around 7am the baby's heart rate had dropped and so did my blood pressure so they put me on oxygen 2 hours and it helped
at 910am they broke my water and I was 9 cm
around 10am the nurse checked me and I was 10cm and ready to go but the dr was in doing a csection so I had to wait. Also my epidural wasn't working on my left side and the pain in my hip so so bad with every contraction. She got the ok to have me start pushing just laying on my side to help with the pain.
Finally the Dr came in and I was able to start pushing. Within 12 min my healthy baby girl was born!
