Induction doesn't seem to be working :( have 6 hours on a hormone drip today to see if it finally dilated me but if not then I'm looking at a section *sigh* it'll be worth it.

Congrats to those that had their babies and good luck to those that r in labor,
I'm now officially past my due date and miserable as hell with no sign of baby. As of today I had 2 membrane sweeps, walked everyday, had plenty of sex and spicy foods, danced silly daily, contracting as close to 5min apart but haven't been making progress so I got sent home and still waiting but only until next week after that we will induce, and I'm hoping it doesnt come to that. For those that r overdue, pray for us and send some labor dust out way please, cause I'm so bitchy that even I don't like who I've become. I need this little girl out of me NOW

My baby boy is finally here! He was born 11-27-12. I went in Monday night for a balloon to dilate me and it got me to 3 by Tuesday morning. They started pitocin then and I dilated pretty quick. Got my epidural and hardly felt anything until it was time to push. I pushed for 2 hours and was making no progress. The doctor said he didnt think the baby was going to make it past my pelvic bone and I could have a c-section or try to push for a few more hours and see how it goes. I was in such tremendous pain I agreed to the c-section. At 5:25 my baby boy was born 9 pounds and 11 ounces 22.5 inches long!! They said there is no way I could have delivered him vaginally because my pelvic bone is so small and didnt want to seperate correctly. The c-section wasn't too bad but recovery is rough! :( My poor husband has done almost everything on no sleep (except breast feed that is lol) LO is having some issues with that but I am pumping and hoping my milk comes in soon.

YOu should use a sns while you wait for the milk to come in, that is what i did and it kept her from getting nipple confusion and helped to bring the milk in all while making sure she was getting enough food. I pumped what i could of course and put that in the sns and had to supplement a tiny bit but now that the milk is a flowing she is doing great. just a suggestion. I know how tough it is when your baby is not getting satisfied while waiting for milk to come i and doctors and nurses are pushing for you to give them a bottle.

Quoting ~JeNn~ BeAn~:" Thank God my epi worked! It worked every time for all of my babies, and didnt cause me any kind of lasting effects, no back pain nothing."

Epidural is such a magical thing, lol I for some strange reason wanted a natural birth and I got one with this baby. I did good up until midwife broke my water and I went from 6-10 cm in 45 minutes. the last ten minutes or say I actually said f**k this give me the epidural and midwife said it was too late which made me really pissed at her. It was the most painful thing i have ever been through in my life. I had thought my epi didnt work with my last kid and after feeling what it really feels like with no pain meds i now Know that it did work just not perfectly. Even now that its been almost 2 weeks since I had my baby I feel that doing it with no pain meds was the dumbest thing i have ever done. I really thought i was going to die. the pushing omg i felt like i tore a new b******e and actually kind of did. any way if i ever have another baby I WILL be getting the epidural. no reason to put my body through that kind of pain when idont have to. Midwife tells me as i am screaming in pain that Amanda you are going to get your natural child birth you wanted. I was like hell to the no you did not just say that. I view her birth as some thing like the exorcist movie. dear god and even after the pain was so intense i kept waiting for relief from the pain it never came. When i had my epidural with my last baby and thought it didnt work when the baby was out it was instant relief i never got that. Epidurals are magical I tell yah lol

Thanks for the advice! I will try that! Yeah his pediatrician already suggested we supplement with formula (which I have been doing some) I have been trying to pump every 2-3 hours and so far we are using less formula than when we were in the hospital. I think I am having some engorgement though and that is making it even more difficult for him to latch on.
