Sorry for my extremely late labor story!!
Labor Story: I had my son Kieran James at 11:42pm on Sat. Sept. 22. I had decided to induce Tuesday. I was in so much pain and uncomfortable and my first sons birthday was on the 29th and I selfishly didn't want to miss it. Anyways, I went into labor on my own on Saturday starting at 11am. I labored at home for a couple hour, but since I am very close to my hospital I wanted to see if I was making any progress and it was hurting and I was so nervous to labor on my own and waiting to long. So I went to L & D and I was 3cm which was the same as last week at the doctors. I was so disappointed. They told me to walk the hospital and then see if I made any change. When I came back it changed 1/2 - 1 cm so they admitted me. I ended up making it to 6cm before doctor wanted to add pitocin. I said If you are going to start any meds then go ahead and get me on an epidural. Once I got the epidural, my labor went flat. I actually started to feel really weak and my blood pressure started to drop. So they gave me some other medication to bring up the bp. Once I got that I went from 6-10cm in an hour or less. I pushed him out very quickly, but with no ripping. He did get a broken clavicle.
Which I didn't find out until I went to my pedi. He was 8lb 12oz and everyone was so surprised that he was so big since I am such a tiny person. I was so relieved to get him out and into my arms and he has been such a sweet boy.
