wow, thank goodness I guess I got lucky?!!!

I started having contractions around 5:00 a.m. & I just assumed I was having stomach issues.. considering I have Ulcerative Colitis (colon disease).. so I just kept going to the bathroom.. until about 7 a.m. I told my fiancé something wasn't right, and we were definitely going to have our baby that day!!

we arrived at the hospital at 9:00 a.m. & my water broke in my car, in the parking lot, as SOON as we parked!! lol

by the time I walked in, I was already 5-6 cm..

long story short, Colby Lee entered this world, vaginally, at 4:09 p.m. on October 20, 2014!! so, I guess I labored for about 11 hours? whew, thank goodness!!! congrats ladies!!!! (((:

I tried going natural (what was I thinking...?) But after 19 hours of contractions I couldn't take it anymore. But let's rewind. I was stuck at 2 cm for 14 hours roughly. Then the nurse broke my water and I progressed to 4 cm and stayed there for 5 more hours. The contractions were so close together and so long (and very painful) I thought I was progressing but I guess not. The nurse finally came in and told me she's gonna have to give me pitocen because my body was just stuck. So that's when I decided to get an epidural. That was the best choice I made that day. 4 hours later I was at 10cm and the nurse said as long as I'm comfortable I can wait for my baby to move down on her own. I waited for an hour and the nurse finally told me to start pushing. About 5 pushes and 16 minutes later my baby was born. :') I guess I had the quickest delivery for that day haha

Super easy. But long. About 20+hours :/
I had contractions for 2-3 hours went to L&D got some meds for pain and sleep.
Never had pain again
Once the 1st med started to fade I got the epidural and didn't feel anything til a few hours AFTER my baby boy was born.
Also I pushed for only 30mins.
I felt lucky cuz I heard all kinds of horror stories about L & D

My baby girl was born 12.11 exactly 2 weeks overdue labour was hard she had turned herself back to back and in the end had a forceps delivery due to fetal distress when pushing so after 20 and a half hours I finally got my little miracle :-) x

Was induced on the 4th of ***@**** in labor until the 7th at 1230am and had to have a emergency c section due to my babies vitals dipping, baby was born at 145am.....not a good experience...especially because I wanted her natural and took the pain for all those hours just to get a c section at the end

I had my baby on the 26th via c section it was painful I went into labor on the 24th at about 1am and wasn't dilating gor sent home went back to hospital when contractions were stronger although since the beginning they were 3mins apart I had to wait for a while because they didn't have enough rooms at hospital it sucked lol they put me on pitocin nothing happened so I ended up with c section on Sunday at 6:30am it was really rough experience but totally worth it all for my little man
