Tuesday around 2 PM, I went in and they admitted me. They put in the cervadil at 7:30 PM and it had to stay in for 12 hours, and after all those 12 hours, it helped thin me out to 90%! But, I was still stuck at 3 freaking cm!!!
So, they started the pitocin at 8 AM. Shortly after at 10 AM, they broke my water and after that, I started going into labor on my own. They turned the pitocin wayyy down, pretty much off and around 3 PMish, I started having really bad back labor. And at that point I was 7 cm and 100% I didn't get an epidural, but I did use narcotics for the pain. One shot of fentynal to help take the edge off of the contractions, but with having bad back labor, it didn't help much.
I sat in the birthing tub with the jets for a little bit which helped A LOT! And then when I got back into bed I was on all fours, which also helped A LOT. I rocked through the contractions and then a little after 5I really felt like I had to push, but they told me I wasn't ready and I told them that I really felt the need to push and sure enough, it was time and after only 20 mins of pushing, Madisyn Grace was born!!!! It was the best thing I ever went through my entire life, and I did it all with no epi! Which, everyone was surprised I didn't beg for one lol..
