Here is my crazy birth story.
I went to the OB for my last appt on Monday. We were supposed to go in to be induced with Cervadil, but when we got to the appt, he told me there was a good chance I would be bumped. He checked me and I was only 2 cm dilated. I felt a pop, and when I stood up, my mucus plug was on the table along with my water! Christian called him back in the room and showed him and he sent me straight to l&d.
I was admitted about 4. I was really happy about not being induced. We hung out for a while and at 7 the nurses checked me and said I was only 2-3 cm. At this point, I asked for Fentanyl because the contractions were getting stronger. After a while, it wore off and I started having stronger contractions. Then they got REALLY bad. They were so painful I asked for more fentanyl and was asking about an epi where they said I needed to be at 3-4..ok. This was about at 9. So after a little while the nurse came back and asked the head nurse to check me again. I was at a 7! So I begged for an epi and they were like well, sure but you have to wait for the girl who had an emergency c-section to be done. The contractions continued to get worse, to the point I was screaming. I didn't get the epi until about 1 am. The life was good! I was dilated to a 9! They gave it time to kick in and my blood pressure first spiked , then tanked. I was put on oxygen and they turned down the epi.
So finally about 3, they told me to start pushing. The nurses were AMAZING and they were doing pereninal massage and helping me out. I pushed for 3 hours. After the first 2 I was asking about the next step. He was face up so it was harder to push him out. FINALLY about 530 am, they said they the head was right there and they were looking for the doc. At one point he was crowning and the doc was JUST walking in...so they told me to stop pushing. I was like yeah right. He finally told me to give me one more good push and boom! Cameron was born. I tore a little, and I have a ton of stitches (stage 2). It was by far the hardest thing I have ever done. I give women who go natural SOOO much credit. OMG. I can't even imagine.

Cam is 7 lbs 111 oz, 21 inches and was born at 552 am March 27. We are so in love.

We are the happiest people ever and we are so blessed.

Thank you Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!!

Lol, looks like your baby had other plans when the doc said you might be bumped from the induction. Glad you avoided that. It stinks that you had to wait for the epi in that much pain. I hope your tear heals up well, definitely take it easy for a bit. I tried to do too much too soon and broke mine, ouch. Thanks for sharing your story.

So glad you didn't have to be induced. And way to go on the 3 hours of pushing and still getting a vaginal delivery!
