VBAC was a success!!!

I went to bed at around 2:45 am started feeling some back pains thinking it was the way i was laying down. So I tried to sleep but I'd constantly be waken up by the waves of lower back pain and it was getting worse. So I texted my sister at 4:30 am and told her what was going on and started timing my lower back pains and it was coming on 3 to 6 minutes apart, it got so painful that I started crying and nausated. I woke DH at 5:15 am and told him to call the dr and the dr told us to head on over to the hospital. We woke DD up and headed over to the hosp by 6 am. We got in at 6:20 and got settled into a L&D room by 6:30.

The nurse checked me and it was determined I was at 4 cm (yesterday I was 2 to 3 cm dilated). So my doctor wanted me to get on IV fluids to make sure I wasn't dehydrated, that this was really the real thing. by 8:30 I was checked again and I was at 5 cm. Received my epidural at 9:15 which was really nice because the contractions were horrible and coming quickly and the doctor came in and broke my water. At 10ish to 11ish - I was at 6 cm, then at 12:45 I was at 7 cm. They administered pitocin to help with increasing the contractions a bit more. By 2:30 pm I was at 9 1/2 cm and I started pushing at 9:35 and Rylan came into this world at 2:53 pm screaming .

He weighted in at 7lbs 9oz, measuring at 20 inches long (not bad for 36w4d gestation).
