It is not a very exciting story but here it is! We scheduled her induction for Nov 30th. That morning we head to the hospital around 6am. On the way almost hitting a skunk.
We get there and checked in, they try to start an IV on me, 4 sticks later and a blown vein they called in an anesthesiologist to put it in. He gets it on the first try, thank goodness. Get my bag of fluids in and start the pitocin on a very slow drip. Doc came in and broke my water, they noticed the fluid was not clear. Then not to long after that got my epidural.
Started feeling some pressure around 1230pm, so the nurse checked me and I was complete. We did some practice pushes and made some progress, but not a lot. After around maybe an hr of pushing she just was not coming down, so they had me lay on my side. Dh basically folded me over like a pretzel and thank god he did, that finally helped get her out after another 30 min of pushing.
They can't believe I didn't tear at all! She came out screaming and apgar scores were 8&9! I think there were like 10 or so people in there to make sure everything was ok especially after seeing there was a little bit of meconium in the water. Thankfully she was.
It took another 30 min to deliver the placenta. It has never taken that long for me to deliver that! Doc gave me 2 shots of something (don't remember what) to help with the bleeding just as a precautionary measure.
