I had my beautiful baby girl on thursday January the 3rd at 6:47pm after 36 hours of labor, I started having contractions wensday in the morning so I went to l&d I was 41 wks and 3 cm dilated so they kept me and see how I progressed , at 8 that night I was 4 cm and at 1130 I was 5cm at 2am my water broke and I was 6cm and then I was checked again and again and again and I was still at 6 making no progress they decided to give me pitocin at 2pm since my water had been broken for 12 hrs and I had made no progress , pitocin is a smurfing nightmare , before I got it my contractions hurt but I thought ok I can do this pain med free its not too bad but after getting pitocin I was crying thru each contraction so they gave me morphine since I denied an epi well after 3 hours of pitocin even morphine stopped helping I was in tears thru each contraction again so at 530 and 8cm dilated I got an epidural, and at 6 I requested to get checked since I felt the urge to push and sure enough I was 10 cm and started pushing 10 min after being checked , I pushed for a total of 37 min, got an episiotomy and about 10 stitches and my recovery has been awesome I was in pain for 3 days maybe and then just uncomfortable and now 12 days pp I feel like a fatter version of my old self lol im so in love with my baby girl and shes worth more than every tear and every pain I ever felt!
