my labor story. :) pants88 1 child; McClure, Ohio 197 posts31st Mar
so tuesday i was supposed to go to the drs to get a sweep done. went in he checked my cervix and said your in labor. at 11 am. told me to check in to l&d by 4. at that time i was 4 cm. a little later he came back and i was 6 cm. i hadnt had any contraction pain. just a mild back ach. thought it was because i was pregnant not labor lol. stayed at 6 cm until wensday night at around 630-7 then he broke my water and started pitoncine. didnt have a clue that all that would start HORRIBLE contractions. im a ftm and didnt really get it lol. had horrible contractions until about 115 the next morning (thursday the 28th) and started pushing .. pushed for 38 mins and she was born. 7lbs 12 ounces. 19 inches long light brown hair and blue eyes. :) she was perfectly healthy. as soon as she was born i felt a million times better didnt have any kind of pain didnt even feel the stitches. :) and actually about 2 hours after delivery i went and took a shower. just thought id share how my labor went. good luck to all the soon to be mommies out there. :) i hope your labor and delivery goes exactly the way you want it too.!!

Lucky! And congratulations! I was induced, and my labor took 27 hours! I had pitocin for 13 of those hours. That stuff is just horrible..
