Popping in from April 2010 Playroom.

I was in labor for 3 days. The second day I opted for pitocin to help speed things along because I wanted the pain to end as quickly as possible. It was sooo long and awful, and halfway through the second day I finally opted for the epidural because I couldn't take it anymore. I was just really slowly dilating, and I stalled at 4 cm. After I got the epi, though, I dilated to a 10 in five hours (which is fast considering that I only got to 4 cm after hours and hours of painful contractions) since I was able to relax. I only had to push for about 15 minutes and he was out.
