The birth story of Mason Garrett


We were scheduled for an induction on 11/28/05 at 5:30am. So we arrive at the hospital and wait until about 7:40am to get hooked up to the pitocin. I was dialated 2cm upon arrival and was already having some irregular contractions so they thought the pitocin would work fairly quickly.

I labored without meds until about 10:45am. The contractions by then were really intense and I was trying to hold out as long as possible. The nurse asked me about an epidural and I told her that I thought I would just maybe go with some iv meds if I really needed it. She told me that I couldn't have any iv meds at that point b/c they didn't want to give them to me within 4 hours of birth and I was dialating very quickly. So, after heavily contemplating my options (I had never had an epidural) I decided to go ahead and have the epidural. I seriously think I was more nervous about that than anything else. Let me tell you....it was heavenly!!!!! The next time I think I'll have the meds right away! After that was in place they broke my water and by 12:30 I was telling them that I should probably be checked b/c I was feeling ALOT of pressure and a little discomfort. They came in and checked at 12:35 and I was 10cm and complete. I pushed for 5 min and out he came. He weighed 9lbs 12oz ,22 inches long and is absolutely beautiful!

I'm glad everything went well. I agree, epidurals are heavenly.
