We arrived for our scheduled induction at 6:00am the morning of 12/23. After filling out paperwork and doing the normal lab work I was started on Pitocin at 7:00am. I was already having contractions at ten minutes apart that I was not feeling so we waiting for the pitocin to do it's magic. I slowly began feeling contractions and was checked at 9am and showed to be 4cm dilated 70% effaced. My mother arrived at this time to spend he morning with us and keep us entertained. Madison was kept over at her aunt's house until Latham arrived. At 9:15am my OB arrived to break my water and give me a heads up about options for pain medication and wished me good luck with the remainder of my laboring. I labored from then til about 11am when I was no longer able to get through the contractions and opted for an epidural. I was checked immediately after receiving that and a catheter and was a good 7CM. My contractions settled down and DH decided it was time to get the family closer to the hospital so they were called. Around 12pm I began to feel a slight pressure and asked the nurse if she would check my progression, I didn't want to wait because I had absolutely no feeling in my legs and knew Latham could come at any moment. I was complete and we immediately began pushing. My mother had decided to stay in the room along with DH. I pushed three times a piece through three contractions and Latham was born attempting to cry. He was immediately placed on me. He weighed 8 lbs 5 oz, was 21.5inches long and received 9/9 on his apgars.
