June 6th - 10pm went to the hospital after having contractions since friday. got sent home around 1: 00 am. dr. called after we were just discharged and decided that i would be induced the next day.

June 7th:

9 am - arrived at hospital and got hooked up to the monitors.

11: 20 am: started induction. had my first cervical check which i was still 1 cm and no progress. recived cytotek and waited 4 hours while also recieving penicillin for my GBS.

2:30 pm - started pitocin and recieved statidol ( IV meds)

by 6 pm - pitocin was on the highest setting and i was extrememly uncomfortable. was 2 / 3 cm's still.

by 8 pm - 4 cm's

by 10 pm - i was still 4 cm's .

by 11 pm- recieved epidural cause i had been stuck at 4 cm's for so long.

by 12 pm - 6 cm

by 1:30 am - 10 cm and ready to push

she arrived at 2:07 am weighing in at 7 pounds 4 oz and 20 3/4 inches long.

had to have an episotomy cause her head would not come out. had to have the vacum help get her out cause her heart rate dropped to 90 and was stuck there for a little while.

worth the 15 hour labor and worth the stitches.

we are all happy and healthy and doing great.

Sounds like things went pretty well!!! You mentioned in your other thread that your DH said he didn't want to do it again after watching this one - what was it that made him nervous? I know a lot of dads hate seeing their wives in pain!

Congrats again!!!

it was the pain and then seeing them blowing my vein and all of the blood and pushing really got to him. it was pretty rough for me though.
