I am happy to announce that my son arrived on 10/17. His name is James William and he is beautiful! Of course, I am a bit biased. I am writing too because when I reached 4 cm dilated, I requested an epidural. I got a combined spinal epidural which worked at first. However, the epidural failed to continue to work despite the doctor administering medication manually in the tube every hour of my 17 hour labor. Eventually I had to have a C section because I was not progressing past 9cm and I had a fever and infection. James was fine, but I was wondering if anyone else out there experienced a similar situation.
