Thanks guys. This little bugger caused lots of worry...haha. I labored from 9am until 5 or 5:30pm on my own, but by then my body was really fighting the contractions. I was 8cm and they were right on top of each other with no breaks and super intense. I really didn't want to, but my doula, BF, and nurse agreed getting the epidural would be more beneficial to me at that point so my body could take a break. After getting that in place, I went to almost fully dialated by 8:30pm. When the doctor checked me at 8pm, he said there was still a little bit of the rim of the cervix left and that if I wasn't fully dialated in 20 minutes, he was going to do a section because baby was in trouble. So sadly at 8:30pm, I was being wheeled into the OR. Jackson came out not breathing and limp (which I didn't find out until afterwards) and it seemed like forever before I heard him cry.
I'm disappointed that things didn't work out, but I'm just glad my little guy is safe.

I am sure it is a little disappointing that things didnt go the way you planned. But it is such a blessing that everything turned out okay in the end. Your end product is still the same. When you plan on a natural childbirth, there is always that chance that this just isnt your time to do it and intervention is necessary. You were just one of those cases! I am so happy that you finally have your beautiful child to hold. Congratulations hun!
