Well the Dr. sent me to the hospital on Tuesday the 18th to get Cervidil inserted. On Wednesday morning at 6am I was started on patocin. I had very consistent contractions almost all day and only dilated to 3cm. The Dr. came in and decided that he wanted to stop the patocin and do some more cervidil and let me get some rest over night and start it again in the morning at 6am. I ended up having contractions all night and got a more rest. At 6am they started the patocin again and by 11am I was having very strong contractions but still only 3cm. I asked for an epidural and to my surprise the Dr. granted my wish. I then labored until 2pm and the epidural was not working. The called for more meds for the epidural, that however didnt work I was feeling every strong contraction. The good news was that I had dilated to a 5. I then was checked again at 3pm and was dilated to 8cm. Then I was checked again at 4:15 and was dilated to a 9.5 cm. The nurse then said I thank that I should make a quick call. She had to call my Dr. to come from his office a few blocks away and by 4:48pm I had my very beautiful baby boy. The Dr. said that everything went great I did need a small episiotomy. The babys cord was wrapped around his neck once and he had two knots in his cord. Babys heart beat was very consistant through the whole labor so he was getting all that he needed and was not stressed over the cord. However the day before we got to go home they told us that he had Jaudus and we had to stay for 3 more days at the hospital. I was only allowed to hold him for his very strict 30 min feedings. The rest of the time he had to be monitored and under the lights. It was very hard and we got so tired of being at the hospital. I am so glad to be home with my baby, who is about to wake up now to be fed. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers.
