So I was induced due to low amniotic fluid. First they applied cervidil which softened my cervix only a little, and my kiddo had a 6 min interval where his heart rate dropped really low and scared the c__p out of everyone. Then his heart rate came back up, and I was contracting, so we decide to continue without anything. By the way, the good thing about cervidil (vs cytotec) was that they were able to pull the cervidil out right away, which cannot happen with cytotec. Then in the morning they put me Pitocin, and I was having such strong contractions, that I couldn't handle them. After hours of torture, I still hadn't dilated at all, and I was in so much pain, that I begged for the epidural even though I had wanted a med free birth. The epidural took care of the pain, but after an hour or so, I started to feel some pain in my left side and pressure, so they checked me and I was almost completely dilated!!! I couldn't believe it! After about half an hour of pushing, my babe was born...6lb 6oz, 20" long. Apgar 8 and 9. He's got lots of hair, and once we got past the initial awkward moments of br___tfeeding, he latched on like a champ. We're going home on Monday which is my bday, so it's the best bday present ever!!!!
