Sydney Katherine is here!

So we were told at our DR appointment 0ct 13th that we were going to be induced that night, so we call and are finally called in at 10:30pm, I had tested positive for strep B so had to be on antibiotics for 2 doses before the induced, so they started the Pitocin at 5:30 am.

Contractions started and were rough but I wanted no meds. Finally at 11:50 I said ok give me an epidural so I got it placed in, at 12:04 the contractions were horrid and the epidural was not working, she said that I had prob waited to long and they could try to refloat it, I then was checked and I was at 7 cm dilated.

I told the nurse I have got to push I cant stop it, Sydney was born at 12:10 pm, never will I deliver with no pain meds on pitocin again it was so painful I wanted to die But only had to push for a few times and she came to meet us

We were discharged at 1pm Oct 15th and are enjoying every moment with her.

Re: Sydney Katherine is here!

Beautiful baby!
Your labor sounds just like my last labor.
Pit, asked for Epi. Epi didn't work, Doc went to replace a new epi, but DS started to come out and I wouldn't stop pushing. DS made a very fast arrival!
Like you, I will NEVER EVER EVER do a birth with no pain meds if I have pit.
I won't even accept pit before an epidural!!!

me either funny thing is I had my 1st three natural no meds or anything was no big deal to me. My last baby was induced but they told me to do the epidural first I hesitated but did do it that way, I hated the epidural couldnt feel when I needed to push etc so this time I wanted to do it without meds (guess I did in the end lol ) mistake wont make it again.
