I went in on Tuesday (december 21st) at 7:30 am to begin my induction. They started pitocin at 10:30. I had very mild irregular contractions for an hour and then my water broke. And I got the worst contractions, I was screaming for an epidural. Kudos to you ladies who can go without drugs! Your amazing! Got my epidural around 2 pm. Got checked and I was a little over 4 cm dilated at 90% effaced. An hour later they checked me again and I was 10 cm! It was time to push
And I felt great still from the epidural! I pushed for about 15 min and she popped right out, without me feeling a thing
Ava was born at 4:05 pm on December 21st. She weighed 7 lbs 1 oz and was 19 in long! She is a beautiful baby and she was worth every minute of my sickness. I love her to death. Thank you ladies for your support throughout these last 39 weeks. You all have been amazing, I could not have done this without you.
