I did elect to be induced, I had been in labor since 25 weeks and I just couldn't take it anymore, I was induced 6 days before my due date. I felt like a failure when I made the appointment, but as soon as she was born I knew I had made the right decision, she is PERFECT!!! I am also sad to say that I didn't go completely natural...I had a dose of Stadol....15 minutes later she was born....I still felt EVERYTHING, all it did was make me loopy, I will NOT do that again, there was no point in it....it really is true what you all said..."When you think you need the drugs, it is all over" it sure was. Anyway, it all went so fast, and I am very happy with how it turned out, despite all the interventions I allowed. Jenni is a wonderful breastfeeder, she knew EXACTLY what to do, she was not a lazy eatter like my other 3, and I KNOW it is because I didn't have the epi. Anyway, I do hope that I can write about my 100% natural birth the next time around, I look forward to that.

Don't be too hard on yourself. You didn't get an epi and look at the change!

I'm just glad you came back to let us know.. Lots of hugs and kisses to you and your little girl.

Congratulations! You look great, by the way!

I had the stadol too and know all too well that loopy feeling. Ugh.. I also regret it, but in the moment it's nearly impossible to turn down when it is offered to you. You still did a great job and it'll be a different experience for next time.

I probably would have gotten induced at that point, as well!

Don't feel bad. A shot of stadol is not the end of the world. Take it as a lesson learned to apply for next time.

Enjoy your little one!

Congratulations!! Don't feel like a failure or anything negative because you chose induction! You did what was best for your daughter and no one should fault you for that. With my daughter, I had Stadol and it didn't do anything for me at all -- so I know what you mean. I might end up the same way this time around (except minus the Stadol -- all it did was make me dizzy!), and I won't consider myself a failure if I don't go 100% natural (as much as I would love to).

Congratulations, sweetie!! You did a wonderful job!
