I hope everyone is doing well in their last stretch of pregnancy! I was due January 6th and induced Monday January 8th. They started cervadil at 8pm and when then checked me at 5 am I was still 2 cm as I was when I came in. They started pitocin at 5 and my contractions immediately started. I continuted to contract at about 1 minute apart and couldn't have any pain medication b/c I still hadn't dilated. It was the worst pain of my life and I think it made it worse b/c it wasn't making any progress. At 1pm my Dr. came in and checked me and I was still 2 cm. They decided that my induction had failed and they would start again that night or I could go home. Well I was not about to go home w/o my baby! I continued to have contractions on my own all night but not as close together or severe as with the pitocin. They started cervadil again at 8pm, I had hard contractions all night. At 5 am they started pitocin and checked me and I was 4 cm. I got my epidural at 7:30 and didn't feel anything from there on out. I started pushing at 12 pm and Ella Rae was born at 12:56 pm. She was 7 lb 5 oz. 19.5 inches long. I only had to have one st_tch from tearing. The 2 days afterwards were a little rough but after that everything went pretty well. She's a wonderful baby and we have to wake her up sometimes just to feed her. We are truly blessed and my husband's words were, that was much easier than I thought, how about you take a year off from pregnancy and we'll try again in a year! I'm glad it was easy for him!! Good luck to all you ladies.

juju - January 26

congrads, im being induced on monday man am i nervous, im already dilated and thinned 2cm 80 %


Gena - January 27

Thanks lala! Juju, I was also 2 cm and 90% when I went in but I guess she just wasn't ready. I had heard of inductions failing but most of the stories I had heard weren't people overdue. I wish you the best of luck. Your little one is probably ready to burst of out there!!
