DH was very worried that things would happen so quickly that he would end up pulling over to the side of the road and delivery the baby himself!

We got to the hospital. I knew that labour wasn't near but I was a bit worried as I wasn't feeling baby move. They hooked me up to the monitor. Baby's heartrate was strong and consistent, which is good. I had a few mild contractions but nothing too difficult. They checked me and I was only 2 cm dilated.

They said I could go home or stay, but I opted for home (Starbucks first). We are to be back by 4 pm if nothing happens.

I REALLY hope something happens by then. I don't want another induction if at all possible.
Good luck Warby, I hope it goes ok for you tonight.

Big huge hugs xxxx

So, I have been uncomfortable ALL day! Feeling like baby is literally going to fall out and can tell I've really dropped. I started getting contractions a lot but wasn't really timing them. I called labor and delivery and they told me to time them and once they are every 5 minutes for an hour to come in.. Well then I started to second guess myself and wonder if I was having actual contractions or not. I ended up just going to be on the safe side and once I got on the monitor they saw I was actually having contractions every 4 minutes so they checked me and I am only about 1 CM dilated so they sent me home and told me to go back once my contractions are stronger.

What do you guys think? I'm due on Friday and REALLY want baby to come out sooner than later! Think this could be the start of something for real or could I end up like this for another two weeks? I think I'll cry if I go past Friday.

Well ladies, my baby was born last night. It's a boy!

After my water breaking and me not progressing very much, I waited around for a room to become available for an induction. But once I got into the delivery room, somehow my body magically ramped up on it's own. It was so fast in the end. At around 1130pm the nurses put in the IV line. Doctor checked me, I was 3 cm dilated. I am having lots of contractions. Nurse is about to start oxytocin but I am pretty uncomfortable so ask for epidural instead. Get epidural around 12:00. Nurse is very nice and decides to let epidural take full effect before starting oxytocin. Epidural is wonderful. Contractions are constant. Nurse decides to check me one last time at 1230 before starting oxytocin. Bam- am 10 cm dilated! She scrambles around to get ready. I feel urge to push. I push for 7 minutes total, and my son was born at 12:57. Wow.

He is 7 lbs 3 ounces. I think we will name him Mason Luke. I had no tearing (had 4th degree tear with #2) and did not need an episiotomy (like I did with #3). I am exhausted though!
