Ok so I had a sechduled induction which I was very nervous about..

I got to the hospital at 8 am and they got me in my room (the EXACT SAME L and D room I had had Logan in so strange lol) and they got my IV inand started me on pitocin. I was already contracting and was only 1 cm dialated and about 60 % effaced when I got there. I had to lay on my left side b/c otherwise Noahs heartrate would dip slightly during contractions so they couldnt really trun up my pitocin. So I pretty much just sat there for the first half of the day feeling about the same as I would at home. My Dr came in at about 2:00pm or so to break my water. When he broke my water I was only 2 cm and 60% effaced. So he broke my water and the contractions started comming really intensely I asked for my epi about a half and hour later around 2:30pm or so and at around 3 my nurse put in my cath and checked me and I was at 4 cms. about an hour later I started telling DH that I was having so much presure like a ton.. I guess I kept saying it over and over lol and my nurse came into check me again and I was complete so they called my dr the whole time im saying I have so much presure and I need to push. they were setting up the room and telling me to breath. Finally around 4:15 the nurse let me start pushing even before my dr got there ( that was the longest 15mins of them setting up ever! lol) I was already at plus 3 when my dr got there I pushed for about a half an hour and then at 4:48pm Noah Alexander-lee was born!! he tried to be born with his arm first and I felt the that burning when he came out I didnt feel that with Logan b/c my epi hadnt kicked in all the way b/c everything happened so fast. I guess he kinda cork screwed out all crazy. (he had to make a GRAND enterance lol)

He weighed in at a whole 5lbs 12oz and was 19in long! He is perfect and Im sooo in love!!! I definately didnt think it would happen sooooo fast! especially since I was induced...
