my labor and birth ( induction) Nae_audressa Due July 3 (girl); North Carolina 4 posts
21st Jul '13

My last Dr. Appointment was July 3rd, i was 2cm dilated and 80% effaced. My due date was originally July 4th but i knew from the beginning my baby girl wasn't going to come on time so i went ahead and set a date for an induction( which was the coming saturday) July 6th. I arrived at the hospital at 7:45a.m did my paper work and got settled in. At 9:50 a.m they started my pitocin. Increasing it every 15 minutes. Thankfully for the first few hours i didn't feel any of my contractions. Around 1:00 i got pain medicine through my iv which helped ease the pain enough for me to sleep. At 3:00 pm i got more pain medicine through my iv but this time i wasn't so lucky , because it didn't work at all & i was trying to hold off on the epidural as long as i possibly could. Anyways....by then i was 3cm dilated, baby was at a station -1, and i was still 80% effaced. When the doctor came in to check me she told me she would be back to break my water but before she had the chance it broke on it's own (4:15) . That's when i found out my lo had pooped and was at risk of an infection. I waited for my fluids to run out before i could get the epidural so when i finally did it was at 5:05 pm. At 6:50pm i was 7cm dilated and at 7:27 8 5 by 8:00pm i was 10 cm dilated and ready to push. My princess was born at 8:36 pm. 7lbs 4oz and 100% healthy
