Im sure a few of you are curious what in the heck happened! lol Just earlier that day I was posting about having nooo signs of labor. Well I ended up being induced Tuesday night..here it goes

Kalon's movements had slowed wayy down and I had spent the whole day worrying. Finally I around 6 I decided to call my dr and let her know I was headed to L&D to get it checked out. Drove myself because I figured it would just be an in and out thing..arrived there around 6pm. They monitored for awhile and everything looked great..did an NST and another BPP..according to everything he was a "very happy baby". It was still ALOT less movement than I usually felt. They were getting ready to send me home hen my dr came in to talk with me. She checked me..I was 2cm and 75%. Then she asked me if I had thought about being induced before the 2 week mark because she knew how worried I was. We aggred on Friday the 9th (1 day after my due date) She went to schedule it..but came back with the news that the only time avaliable was 4:30 in the morning. I was fine with that until she said.."So how about we just go ahead and do it tonight?" I jumped on that! lol About 30 mins later at exactly 12:25 am they started me on the Pit. I didnt start feeling contractions until about 3 am (of course right when I was trying to sleep) I had about 2 hrs of really hard contractions that didn't give me a break until they gave me the magical epi (when I hit 6cm) which honestly, in my opinion getting that thing done was the worst part of the whole thing...my contractions were soo intense and I had a hard time sitting still...so it took a couple tries But about 5 mins later I was feeling ahhhmazing. I slept for about an hour then things started getting crazy! My dr came in and checked me and I was right at 10cm and completely ready to go! She broke my water and let my contractions get a little more intesne. About 45 mins later it was time to push..30 mins of pushing and my most amazing little man was here. At 11:24 am (almost exactly 11 hrs after I started the pit) 7lbs 11oz 19 1/2in long. Head full of hair..eyes wide open just gazing at everything around..sooo alert. He is perfect.

Labor was absolutely amazing. I completely disagree with the common thinking that inductions are sooo horrible. The contractions were rough but I was able to get thru them just fine...and they didnt get REALLLY bad until about 30 mins before I got the epi. It wasn't long at all..I still cant believe how fast it really went.

We got home yesterday. He is doing great other than a little jaundice (level was 11.7...had to take him back to hospital today for another test should hear back soon) He is a total boob man....which is a good thing because mine have filled up to about 5 times their normal size lol. I am struggling with the circ..changing diapers with it gets me so nervous...but he seems to be dealing with it just fine. All in all we are doing pretty fantastic.


Thanks so much Jaidynsmum for my adorable siggy!

Oh Annie!!!! What a beautiful little man!!! Congratulations!!!

I have to say that this time around on the pit drip wasn't that bad for me either, the contractions were intense but I still handled them much better than first time around.

Eli had his Circ yesterday and has peed AND pooped all over me 5 times since then when he has not done it once before!!! LOL my sister insists that he is voicing his opinion over the winkie whacking

Congrats again Momma!!! He is just beautiful!!
