I posted in third tri after he was born but for anyone who didnt see I had him last monday, July 4th. I was in labour for 23 hours! He was born at 10:43 pm weighing 8lbs 4oz and I did it completely natural which was not my plan. I managed to stay at home until I was 6cm dilated, and still managing the pain pretty well. 2 hours later they checked me and I was only 7 cm. Another couple hours after that they checked again and said I was 7-8 and things were going pretty slow. By that point the pain was pretty bad and I asked for my epidural. The nurse called down and said they were sending it up. 5 minutes later I was screaming I needed to push and she told me I wasnt ready and not to push. Well I couldnt control it so I started pushing, she checked me and I was 10cm. It took 5 mins to go from 8-10 and there was no time for any pain relief. I pushed sooo hard and he was out in 4 minutes, the doctor just made it to the room when his head came out! It was a bit traumatic at the end because it went so fast, but soo worth it!! Glad I didn't have to be induced and so proud of myself for not getting an epi! I didn't even have any tears so no stitches for me!!
The healing is going great and my son is perfect! He caught on to breastfeeding right away, hardly ever cries, only wakes up once every 3-4 hours in the night! It's wonderful.
