Thursday the 21th at our doctors appt She decided that she wanted to induce me the following Monday. Dh and I were both relieved. I had been having contractions 3-4 min apart for over a month. Monday at noon we went in to her office for her to check fluid levels and get my admittance's papers together. I was only dialated to a 1. We got into a room at the hospital around 1:45pm and they started me on pitocin. About 20 minutes later my contractions were unbearable and 2-3 minutes apart and lasting about a minute. They checked me and I still had not progressed past a 2. At about 3:15 they stopped my pitocin due to an emergency with another patient... so I got a small break to relax. At 6:30 a nurse realized that they had not started my meds back up so we got started again... At about 7:30 I caved and was begging for an epidural... i was still only barely dilated to a 2. 8:30pm epidural was starting to kick in and I was showing a little more progress finally dialated to a 4 at around 11pm... sent the In-laws home to get some sleep, told them we would call when I got to a 7-8... ,midnight when the nurse came to check me, we had to call the in-laws... I was at a 8-9! I was fully dilated by 1am, The doctor wanted me to labor down a little more so she wouldn't let me push until about 2am. I pushed for about a hour and a half. They had to put me on oxygen due to low o2 stats. It made me horribly nausous and my mouth was so dry! Kylee's head was visible for over a hour, they keep trying to get me to stretch out a little more but it wasn't happening... then the doctor either helped me rip or gave me an episiotomy. Im not sure which DH says episiotomy and my mom says I ripped?? Ugh they cant agree on anything! At 3:21am with 2 last hard pushes Kylee Grace arrived!! I couldn't have been happier.
I will post more about afterwards, Im gonna try to get some sleep
