I was scheduled to be induced, and the night before I was so nervous! I could not sleep at all! Well I ended up tossing and turning by time I fell asleep I overslept for my 7:30 induction!!! I got there about 8:30! I work in L&D, so the girls just laughed at me, they know I am always running late!!! When I get checked, I am only 1 cm, still! Ugh. We start cytotec, and I settle in and start watching daytime tv. Around noon MD checks and I am 2-3, she decides to do one more round of cytotec. Right after the second dose, contractions really start to kick in, like every 1-2 min. Starting to hurt pretty good too. Now I have always gotten epidurals with my other deliveries, and I had thought that maybe I would try the natural route this time. Well I made it to about 3cm and I finally caved and asked for pain meds! I tried the breathing techniques for about an hour, then I was just exhausted from being up all night and in pain from the contractions coming one on top of another. I got phenergan and stadol and it helped for about an hour. It made me so foggy and I felt like I was in a coma. I could here the conversations in my room around me, but I could not open my mouth to respond to anyone. Everyone thought I was asleep, but I wanted to yell, "I am awake and can hear you!!!" But I could not make my lips move. Sometime later I got my epidural, how do you spell relief? EPIDURAL!!! It was awesome! I had a very small spot on my right side that I could still feel ctx, but wayyy better than before!
At about 5:50 pm I was watching the baby's HR on the monitor and he started dropping, lower and lower into the 80's. No one was in the room with me except my sleeping husband and I was starting to panic when the nurse came barreling through the door. She flipped me to the other side, threw oxygen on and checked me, and baby's head was practically hanging out between my legs! The doctor barely had time to make it in for delivery. By time my legs got put up in stirrups, his head was pretty much out and my doc said, "Reach down with your hands and pull your baby out." So I did. It was a no push delivery! It was awesome!!! No tears, no epis. Could not ask for better!
