Tara - October 9

I'm 36 weeks and love to hear labor stories just to ease my mind that things will go well when my little one decides it's time..So please post any birth stories so us awaiting our arrivals can read.

 

Kel - October 9

Just wanted to share my labor and delivery experiene with you all. I was induced Sept 21. Dr. broke my water at 9:00 a.m., I showered and the nurse then gave me pitocin. I was having back to back contractions every 2 minutes and tried to breath through them for 3 ours. Finally I asked for the epidural and felt great within 20 minutes. I was having heavy contractions all day but not dialating much. Through all the cotraction I did not feel theem. Finally at 4:40 the nurse had me move to my left side. At 5:30 I was dialated to 10. I started feeling more pressure and felt the contractions more but really it was not that painful. I exptected the worst pain possible but it totally wasn't. My husband and I cracked jokes in between pushing and I pushed for an hour. My Dr. came in after an hour and said "my dear, you have been pushing long enough." He used the forceps and pulled my baby out at 6:33 p.m. No injuries at all. It was the most amazing experience seeing my baby for the first time. I cried tears of joy.I hope you all have a wonderful labor and delivery. DON''T BE SCARED!!! I listened to so many horror stories and was full of anxiety, but in the end it was totally bearable.
