Sorry it took so long to get on here ladies! Thank you for all the encouragement during my induction and also the congratulations on our baby girl. She is incredible.

The induction was LOOOOOOOOOOOOONG but not horrible. I was only dilated to 1cm Sunday when we checked in so we did Cervadil Sunday night. Monday morning I was 1-2cm so we did Cervadil again Monday during the day. I was having contractions 2-4mins apart on the cervadil but we decided to sleep Monday night and start the pitocin Tuesday morning. The pitocin on Tuesday did almost nothing. I had very few contractions and they were not strong and I made NO progress.

So we did Cervadil again Tuesday night. This is unusual but my only other choice was to go home. I guess Cervadil can cause really violent contractions when you are already dilated and if it is used too much...apparently worse than pit. But since Felicity looked awesome on the monitor, I was healthy and the only reason we were really inducing was because of Joey the doctor told the midwife he would sign off on a 3rd dose.

Wednesday morning I was finally 3-4cm dilated! The cervadil really did much more than the pit for me so we were glad with the route we took. Ate breakfast and started pitocin at 9:30 Wed. morning. Started contracting almost immediately. Between 11-12 I was getting uncomfortable and so midwife checked me at noon. I was 4-5cm but baby was still at -3 so midwife didn't want to break my water. Got hooked up to the telemetry monitor so I could walk around (wireless!). Walking for an hour was awesome....At 1:00 I was 5cm and baby was at -1! Midwife said that she doesn't think baby was as big as they thought she would be but instead I would have a lot of fluid. Boy was she right! I was CRACKING up when she broke my water, it just kept coming. She actually had to hold the side of the pad up on the bed because it nearly spilled over!

I got in the shower for a bit because I just kept gushing...and the contractions got TONS more intense. At 4pm I was checked again and I was 6-7cm. We tried the birth stool and I was standing hanging on to Tom. It was intense. But the midwife and the nurses were just hanging out with us and we were chatting watching the Ellen Show between contractions. The midwife was wondering if the contractions were more intense than I was letting on because they didn't seem long enough to her. They were. At 6 I decided to get into bed. The back labor was horrid but it hurt too much to move. At 6:20ish I was checked again and I was 9cm but the anterior lip was thick so we suspected she was sunny side up. Midwife wanted me to flip on my hands and knees but I got half way and started yelling NONONO! Then I felt the urge to push. So midwife pushed the anterior lip out of the way during a contraction and then she said "Okay, now you're complete so expect to push on the next contraction!"

Well, something else unexpected....Got a contraction and didn't have the urge to push! I had about 4 contractions that were too weak to push against, it was so weird! So they all finished getting ready and Tom got his gloves to help catch. Then all of a sudden I needed to push and her head was coming out! Like, midwife had to put her hand flat against me to stop the head from coming too fast. It was crazy. She coached me through not all out pushing (which was REALLY hard) and then all of a sudden I was giving a push for her shoulders and Tom was handing her to me!!! And she was SCREAMING!

Apparently midwife and Tom together guided Felicity's head and then midwife let go and let Tom and I do the rest! So Tom was the official catcher of his daughter! It was amazing. And pretty quick recovery, no pain meds.

We are in awe of our baby girl, and Jamie is such an amazing big brother. We are in love!
