Started getting contractions at 4:30 Friday morning which were painful but only about 15-25 minutes apart! I went about my morning rountine but DH stayed home with me just in case. I noticed I was spotting brown so I called the doctor and he told me to go to L&D. We got to the hospital about 8:00 am and I was only about 1.5cm and 50% effaced still! So we went home, then took Byrd to go see toy story 3 in Imax. I went to my regular doctors appointment at 4:30 and the contractions never went away and were pretty painful but only 10 minutes apart. I was still around 2 cm and 60%. So we went home. On the way home the contractions started coming about every 5-8 mintues and were very painful. I tried to relax at home and by 7:30 I couldn't take it anymore! We went back to L&D and I was 4cm and 80% From that point I was admitted andin a lot of pain around 12:00am I got an epidural so I could get some sleep, I was 6cm and 100%. around 5:00am I had been fully dilated for a little while and she had finally moved to a 0 station,the doc broke my water and the nurse said we could push if I wanted. So we went ahead and started pushing, she stopped me because she said we were close and she needed to get the Dr. He came in and two pushes later there she was! The labor was so nice and relaxing, I could feel the contractions and the pushing but it wasn't painful, and I was in control of when I wanted to push and counting. Skyla was facing up which is why the contractions were so bad, I was having back labor.
