She arrived on 12/23 at 2:40 pm weighing 7lb 1oz and was 20 in long. I couldn't believe how tiny she was. Addy was 7lb 10 oz and Kate was 8lb 9 oz so I was fully expecting a baby around 9 lbs.

My water broke at 4:15 that morning while I was sleeping. I got to the hosptial around 5:30 and contractions still had not started. They allowed me to walk the halls and bounce on the birthing ball for 4 hours....and still nothing. I was still only dilated to a 2 and 50% effaced. I really didn't want to, but consented to starting pitocin at 9:30 in the morning. The contractions started within 30 minutes, but I still wasn't making much progress. I was checked at 12:30 and was only at a 3 or 4 and still only 50% effaced. I was told I could get the epi at 1:15pm or I would have to wait as the anesthesiologist was leaving for home and going on call. I decided to get the epi as I had begun getting horrible hip pain. I still wasn't really feeling contractions in my front or back. It was all in my hips. I set on the edge of the bed bear hugging a pillow to prep for the epi and the hip pain got unbelievable. I got the epi and it hadn't even fully set in when they checked me again, but this time I was 100% effaced and at an 8cm. The nurse checked me 30 minutes later and I was 100% dilated and at a 10 cm. My epi began working a mere 15 minutes before I needed to push and I felt nothing. I had to be told when I was having a contraction and when to push. I pushed 7 times through 2 contractions and she was here. I got a 2nd degree tear, but didn't feel a thing.

That sounds similar to my birth experience with Madison - Water broke but no contractions, only you progressed much faster! Congratulations on the birth of your beautiful little girl! Hope you heal quickly and painlessly, that tear sounds gnarly.
