I was supposed to be induced on Aug 15th but when we went in the hospital twice they were busy so we were told to come back the next day.

Aug 16th I called the hospital at 7am to see if they were busy, they told me to come on in and get a NST first and go from there. So I went in and got hooked up to the moniters for an hr, nurse said come back again at 10:30 for induction. Well we went up to the libary on the 2nd floor and they called my name over the speakers to come down at 10am. Right away got put in my birthing room and the on call DR came in and checked me, I was 2-3cm, the DR decided to use the gel to help start things. Basically they knew the pit would make things happen FAST and they were still kinda busy.

So they put the gel in and left me and Rob alone in the room for 6 hrs lol, we just watched tv and chilled out. Around 4:30pm the dr came in again and wanted me to progress on my own since there was some progress with the gel I was about a 4 now, anyways she broke my water at that point. Again they left us alone since they were busy, yet again lol. Contractions started to pick up a bit at this point but were not horrible.

at 8 they done another check and I was 5...ughh I just wanted to piticon so bad because I was getting tired, the DR on call I think was anti pitocen she came back in at 11:30 and since there wasn't much change she decided to give me the pit (about time!) well after they hooked me up I felt like I needed to go pee but the pain was crazy intense and It killed to move, the monitor didn't pick up my contractions half the time but when they did they were up over 120+ . At 12:30 I HAD to go pee and there was no holding it back so my DR (who is an intern for the on call DR) said he wanted to check me before using the bathroom. He said I was only a 6cm, I went pee and sat on the toilet and got threw 3-4 contractions, I went back to the room and hugged Rob and just cried and said basically "I'm only 6cm I can't do this for another 4 cm" I leaned back to sit on the bed and said "Omg I think something is happening" the nurse told me to lie back and sure enough she could see Carters head comming down. The intern DR was there (on call DR was at home!) The nurse kept telling me not to push and I just kept saying " im not pushing!!!!!" the nurse had to use the sheet to hold Carters head back so the DR could get his gloves on in time, and actually Carter was born and he could only get one glove on lol.

Carter was born Aug 17th at 12:42 am! He is my smallest and shortest baby lol He weighed 7lbs 12oz and is 47cm. I never had any tears or stitches and Carter is a great baby! it was soo hard getting used to changing a little boys diaper but I'm so in love with this little guy
