Monday night I checked into L&D and they gave me some cervadil to try to ripen my cervix because the next morning they planned on inducing labor. I was having contractions and severe acid reflux all night... it was awful! So the next morning, they started me on Pitocin at about 5am. At about 9:30, my Dr tried to break my water, but it wouldn't break, so he told me that I needed to get the epidural so that he could try to break it again. I got the epidural, which was awkward bc the anesthesiologest was in training and he kept sticking me in the wrong spot. but after I got it, I felt really good. I guess I started having really strong contractions after that... I didnt feel anything... and the contractions caused the baby to go into fetal distress. His heartrate dropped to 70 really quickly. So, they took me in for an emergency C-Section at 10am and by 10:30, our son was here! The C-section was not bad at all... i thought it would be much worse. Caleb was 9lbs 9oz and 20in long. So, thank God that I had a C-Section!! That's about it... we are doing really well and he is just a perfect little baby.

Thank you guys!! Nikki-- sounds like you're gonna have a big one too hehe. Fat babies are sooo cute! I love our chubby lil guy :) Denimb___terfly-- how did you do that v____ally?! I'm kinda short, only 5'2, so maybe that's why he wouldn't come out.
