My water broke at 3 am on Wednesday morning, my due date! I went in but labor wasn't starting so they gave me medicine to help it progress. I finally gave into the epidural around midnight and was only dilated to a 2! Some issues arose and they stopped the pit drip and let me sleep starting about 3 am Thursday morning. I woke up about 6am convinced (me and the dr. and nurses) that I was gonna have to get a c section. I told the nurse it felt like it needed to go "number 2" and she checked me, I was fully dilated and baby was down birth canal. They called in my Dr and baby was born at 730 Thursday! Naturally! I only pushed for about 15 min!
I was against the epidural but now I am totally for it! Also, my Dr said this was very annormal! So don't let me scare you.
