    Eep, I remember being more miserable my first time but it was a very, very hot summer and I was larger I think. This time I couldn't be happier, we've been having the most beautiful fall weather, that makes a huge difference for me. I'm sorry you're in pain, hope that baby gets here sooner rather than later. I kind of want to hold onto these last days as I'm pretty sure we are stopping at three, I'm gonna miss it (not all of it) but it is a special time. (Tomorrow I'll probably be eating these words lol)

    The end always lasts forever!

    I called labor and delivery and my induction is scheduled for 715am tomorrow. Less than a day to go. I guess I should get packing!

    Birth story: So I was scheduled for induction Monday at 715am. I've been induced 3 times before so I wasn't worried and knew what to expect.
    I was 2cm dilated and they started the pitocin around 9am. Had my water broken a few hours later at 4cm.
    Contractions were painful around 1pm and by 2pm I asked for the epidural. I was 5cm and contractions were every 2min and I was crying non-stop. The anesthesiologist came by around 230pm but wouldn't start the epidural until he talked to my hematologist. I was kept waiting and in agony until almost 4pm. The contractions were non-stop plus it was back labor. My first was natural labor and this was THE worst pain I'd ever felt.
    Finally the epidural was in and working and I was happy. A few minutes later I was dizzy and nauseated and short of breath. My bp dropped to 60/40 and baby's hb was running 60-80.
    My room was suddenly filled with doctors, midwives, nurses, and anesthesia. They tried repositioning me and giving me all kinds of cardiac mess plus tons of fluids but nothing worked.
    Then they were running me down to the OR. Fortunately I had been given a spinal epidural so I was mostly ready. I had no idea what was happening because it was so fast and I was so sick.
    The baby was out in a few minutes but he didn't cry right away and he was rushed over to the nurses. Then he screamed and I cried. Best sound ever!
    I was still so sick during the section and it wasn't getting better. Turns out I was hemorrhaging from a placental abruption and both me and the baby nearly died.
    I was given 2 bags of blood plus plasma as well as a ton of cardiac meds.
    Baby Lucas was delivered at 5:09pm and I wasn't stabilized until almost midnight. I couldn't even hold or nurse my baby. Hubby did skin to skin with him. It was devastating.
    My bp today is 80/50 and I feel much better. The incision is more painful than I expected but that could because the nurses are massaging my uterus every 30 minutes. And puking with a fresh incision is as awful as it sounds.
    The baby is fine. He didn't need any extra help and he's just now getting the hang of nursing.
    It was a scary day but we had a happy ending. ❤️
