C.J. made is arrival Friday morning at 5:59 am, after 36 hours of labor (induction) and 23 hours of Pitocin. I did not get my natural birth, I succumbed to an epidural after 19 hours of pit, but it quit working about 2 hours before he was born. I am extremely thankful that I didn't end up with a c-section.
Here is the link to his birth story.
Thanks for all the support, I really hope to be able to have my natural birth with #2.

I haven't gone to read your birth story yet... but 19 hours of pit w/ no pain meds?! WAY TO GO! That especially is no easy feat! I'm glad you were able to avoid a section! *off to read your birth story!* Congratulations mama!

I would have killed that nurse. Seriously, next time if you have someone like that, talk to the head nurse and request a new nurse.
C.J. is a doll. And although it wasn't the birth you wanted, I still think you did a great job!

Congratulations!! Pit makes it so much harder, I could never go 19 hours on pit without pain relief - kudos to you!

Congrats! sorry about the pit. It's to bad they had to put you on it. I've had two births with pit and no pain meds, I understand why you'd want relief. Glad you are enjoying your little boy, he's adorable!

Congrats!!!

Welcome to the Warrior Club!! Although you beat me on the hours without pain meds on Pit... I was roughly going on 13 hours of Pit... Boooo to Pitocin... and you know who ever invented Pitocin must have been really P.O at a woman.... and Boo to whoever made Pitocin!!!!

I'm sorry that you had to be induced, had to put up with an awful nurse and had to get an epidural. You did the best you could. Chester is a cute little guy! Good work, Mama!
