Well I was scheduled to be induced the 17 of Oct, and my water broke the 16th at 6 am. I had just went to bed at 4 am, so I hadn't had much sleep. I slept and woke up to pee, laid back down and about a half hour later.. GUSH. I went to check like 25 min after (was used to the gushing feeling from being 5 cm for a month ) and it was the real deal,. I was 5 cm dilated for the past 5 weeks, my water had been "bulging" or hanging out for the past month, and I was 0 station for the past 3.5 weeks.
my water kept gushing everywhere, but it was 6 am and I was hungry. Went to the gas station after an hour of my mom n sis scrambling to get ready, and 2 hours after my water breaking I got to L/D. I had gushed all over til now, and would continue to do so until his birth. I got an epidural around 9 am, was painless... like a beesting. Little did I know, it wouldn't work for me:( I was only having MILD cramps, and laid there til 1:30 with no labor and no further dilation. They decided to give me Pitocin, began it around 2:30. My OB couldnt make it, and his on call Dr did not make it to my delivery until the last push, literally. I pushed for 24 minutes, felt like 10.. ugh, the pushing was the worst pain of my life. I had no episiotomy, and tore UPWARDS. My c**t was torn in 3, I had 8 stitches and periurethral tears everywhere... It's 6 weeks later and my c**t ACHES like its been punched still, especially when I pee (it's hard to pee still, its like I cant go). My baby was born at 4:20pm.



Summing it up: Water broke at 6 am. Was 5cm for past month, 0 station and water bulging.... Stayed that way until 130 when they decided pit was necessary, got the pit at a lil after 2.... 4:20, son was born. :) My epi did NOT work, they placement was f'd. I had mild labor pains and no contractions until the pitocin, and 24 min of pushing.. so in real life it was 10 hrs labor 20 min pushing.... painwise, it was 2 hrs labor 24 min pushing lol..



**6 am-2pm I was 5cm, pit was administrated, pain got real bad real fast.. zoomed to 10 cm in 2 hours. :)



It was NOT bad. It's my 1st, and it was the pushing that was HORRIBLE. I never wanna push again :( lol.



Sorry, its late and I'm tired so my grammar and wording isn't great here lol. But that is the gist of it :) He was 6 lbs 7.5 oz.. 20.5 inches :)

you got an epi before your pain started?
i didnt know they did that
good golly i cant believe how much a little baby can tear you.
i had a tear but i dont think it was overly bad and my bubs was 9lbs 6oz and i was only 50 kilos before i got pregnant and 5"3!
maybe my vagina is just awesome haha.

lol.. yeah he was 6 7.5 but damn he tore me uppp... dr said it was likely because he came out so fast... my mom pushed 3 hours with me, and I pushed 20 min with my first lol.. he was SO low, which is likely why it didnt take much.



Yeah, the only reason they gave it to me was because I was 5 cm and my water was broken. Though they had to puncture the bag twice more throughout the "labor," I couldnt believe it, there was soooooo much fluid!!! but yeah, pit began my pain lol. I just wanted the epi for security I guess, but a dr came in and saw it was placed badly. :( it made my heart race and race, they couldnt tell my heartrate from my baby's.
