We're all checked in and in a room, they just started the pitocin. I'm still only dilated about 1 cm, but I'm 60 or 70% effaced the nurse said and I was having some contractions here and there on the monitor before they started pitocin. (Which I thought maybe I was, but they didn't really hurt!)

I'll keep y'all posted! Hopefully we have a baby today!

Update #1
(I posted this lower earlier, but just adding it here.)
Doctor broke my water at 7:30 and I was like 2 or 2.5 cm.

Update #2

After 7 hours of pitocin contractions, I asked for the epidural. Just got it. And, I am so glad I did. Amazing. I have so much respect for those of you who do it naturally! Especially when pitocin is involved! Doctor came and checked me and I haven't dilated anymore, ugh. The doctor is going to come back and put in a uterine catheter (icp or ipc? I forget what she said, haha.) to monitor how strong the contractions are and she said it should irritate my cervix and hopefully make me dilate. She said I should def have my epidural before that, so I took her advice. Even though I was planning to ask for it soon anyway! Hopefully after that is in I can take a little nap, because I'm exhausted! No sleep last night really or the night before either. I was falling asleep in between contractions, but they hurt so bad there was no rest during them! I really hope this catheter thing helps get me dilated!

Update #3

Doctor finally came back and put in the uterine catheter. (3 hours later!) I'm now at a 3, 80%, and -2 station. She said she thinks he will be here late tonight or early Wednesday morning. He just doesn't wanna come out & my body doesn't wanna let him go, I guess!

Update #4

Nurse checked me a little bit ago & I'm still only 3 cm, but she said she thought he was -1 now, so a little progress. And she said I had a ton of bloody show and that it was a good sign. She's put me into a crazy pretzel position (which I'm sure would be very uncomfortable if I could feel it, ha) to try and open up my pelvis. My doctor isn't going to try and rush me into a csection as long as baby & I are doing fine (which we are), so hopefully I'll end up with a vaginal birth at the end of this.

Been on pitocin for about 14 hours now and my water was broken over 12 hours ago. I'm coming up on 24 hours of no food and I'm SO HUNGRY! Goodness. And so tired bc I haven't really slept. I was having some pain on one side even with my epidural, but when the nurses changed shifts (now on my 3rd nurse!), she turned it up or something and that helped. So maybe I can get some sleep now! My husband has basically been sleeping all day. Jerk. Haha.

Update #5

Doctor just came to check me (it's been about an hour since the nurse did) and I'm 4 cm now! And almost completely effaced. Woohoo. Some progress! Maybe this pretzel position is working!

Once you get fully effaced you should be able to dilate a little quicker. Hang in there Hun you are doing great.
