I went in on Monday to get induced. At 9 am they checked me and I was at 1 centimeter and they couldnít tell if he was head down, so they ordered an ultrasound. He was head down, so they started the induction with a pill they stick into your vagina to help get you cervix more favorable. I went through 2 more of these that were 4 hours apart. That night I asked for a shot of pain medication so I could get some sleep and then again in the morning cause it didnít work that long! Around 11 am I asked for the epidural because I was 6 centimeters and tired as hell, so I wanted to sleep. Even though the contractions werenít that bad. 30 minutes later they came in to check me and broke my water! After that his heart rate went down to the 40ís with every contraction. Next I hear c-section stat! We roll down the hall they prep me. My mom got to see his head sticking out. My boyfriend was too scared to go in, but thatís ok. He had his cord wrapped around his head.
