I was induced at 7:30am with a tablet to get things started I stayed at 1cm and 75% effaced all day with no progress. So I was checked last at 5:45pm and was still only 1 cm and 75% effaced, I decided to eat dinner and then I started to get stronger contractions around 6:30 so I went to take a bath by 8pm I was in a lot of pain and couldn't talk through contractions so I had the nurse check me I was 100% effaced and 5 cm !!! by 9:30 I had my epidural and was feeling amazing by 1:15am I was 10 cm and at 1:45am I was starting to push and at 3:32 am my beautiful baby girl was born she weighed 9lbs 6 oz and was 21 inches long!!! We named her Melody Marie. I did have to have an episiotomy which wasn't bad but I am up and walking around with mild pain so I am pretty happy.View Thread
okay update I am still at the hospital and will be over night, I am still only 75% effaced and 1 cm dilated but contractions are 3 to 6minutes apart and I started to spot so we are slowing things down for the night and just letting me relax and then tomorrow morning we are most likely going to start pictocinView Thread
SO I had my ultrasound and doctors appointment today. I am 75% effaced and 1 cm dilated , also baby is measuring 9.5 lbs give or take a pound. but the best part is I am getting induced tomorrow at 7:30am so hopefully I will be a mommy in a day or two!!! I am so excited I don't know how I will ever sleep tonight lolView Thread
W/g: I actually lost a couple pounds at my last doctors appointment so I Believe I am around 28lbs now instead of 30lbs
S/c: Lots of contractions but still no baby , I can get my contractions to 6 minutes apart for like an hour and then they space back out to 10 minutes I am sooo sick of false labor at this point also so much pressure and pain it hurts to walk and feels like I need to pee 24/7
Other: We have an ultrasound scheduled tomorrow to check on the baby and see how big it is, the doctor was concerned at how big I am measuring I am kinda of hoping that they will think the baby is going to get to big if they don't induce and then I can be induced this week.
Next D/A: Tomorrow the ultrasound is at 1pm and then my OB appointment is at 2pmView Thread
It's been hot in WI today was our first cool day since June 1st!!! Normally I try not to be lazy but since being pregnant I don't want to do anything especially the last few days even getting up to go to the bathroom is too much work lol At least we know it's worth it in the endView Thread
