I went in on Friday March 29th to be induced. I was suppose to go in at 7 am, they then changed it to 10 am, and then finally to 2 pm. At 2 pm I was admitted and then checked to see how far I was dilated. I was at a 2. They broke my water at 3 pm noticed that baby pooped inside the womb and started me on pitocin. The nurse tried upping my dosage from 1 to 2, but accidentally upped it from 1 to 4. When they checked me at 4 I was 4 cm dilated and 100% thinned, almost in tears from how bad the contractions were. I then asked for the epidural. The epidural didn't work at first, only numbed my right side, so they tried moving it a little bit and it started to work fully. By 6 I was 8 cm dilated and could not move/feel my legs or lower body. I was complete by 10:30 pm, they then put me on a narcotic to slow things down since the doctor was trying to deliver 4 more babies before me. At 1:15 am we got the okay for me to start pushing. At 1:57 am on March 30, I gave birth to a healthy baby girl. She was 8lb 1oz and 20 1/2 inches long, with a full head of hair! (: We tried to breast feed but the nurse forgot I was trying and gave her a bottle...I was one unhappy momma. We got to leave the next day though and she's been an angel ever sense! (:

Thanks! And yeah, I tried, she would not take it though. I think I just might pump and give it to her in a bottle and see if she takes it then. Hopefully she does.

That sucks. That basically happened with my son. He wouldn't latch so they told me I needed to supplement. And then I never really got to breastfeed because he didn't want to work for it. This time I'm making sure I am adamant about everything because I really need/want to BF this time.

I don't mind delivering in the hospital but I didn't stand my ground last time. This time baby is NEVER leaving my sight.
