Well we went in at 6 to get induced. They had to change shifts so it took longer to get started. They started my iv then checked to see how much i was dilated. I was already 4 cm. I had asked my dr about the epi if we could do it early because with Ellie they couldn't get it in. He said at 4 cm i can have it. So I had it before they even started the pit. Took about 10 min to get it in. Wasn't too bad.
So at 8 they start the pit. I don't feel nothing. They check me at 10 because i felt like i was leaking water. I was and only still 4 cm dilated. Then I started feeling lots of pressure and I could feel my body pushing. It really started to hurt. The epi dr came in and gave me extra medicine, it doesn't help so the nurse checks me, i'm 9 cm dilated. I had to ask my mom this later but it was only about 40 min between 4 and 9. So the call my dr and he comes running in. I pant thru about 3 contractions and my dad and Ellie get there. She sees me in pain and i'm like get her out please (i'll tell u a funny story about her later) Anyways, 3 pushes later Angel arrived screaming bloody murder! I had a small laceration on top and a 1st degree tear on the bottom.
I feel really good and Angel is a champ at nursing.
