I was really lucky, at 20 hours into labor they started getting all the paperwork done for a csection and asked me to take off all my jewelery and stuff, I asked them if I could wait a little longer, the doc said he'd wait 2 more hours, he came back and I was only 4 cm. I said "2 more hours and then I'll do the csection, please just 2 more hours" (I was stalling, I really really didn't want one).. well I took a nap and an hour later I felt DD pushing down on my ass lol, called the nurse anddddd I was 10 cm!!! Everyone was so shocked.. mother's intuition I guess.
I was induced with my first and given Pitocin. I labored for 18 hours, only progressed to 5cm, then my daughter went into fetal distress and was born 20 min later via C section. Her cord was around her neck...(which had nothing to due with the Pitocin of course). I do here Pitocin/Induction increases C section possibilities but everyones body is different.
