    Tb, hahah :D Yeah this is kinda the "awkward" stage of being pregnant. There's absolutely no denying it in just a few short weeks. So have you talked about names yet?:D

    Dream, I keep thinking about you and wondering if you already have a baby in your arms lol. Can't be long now!!!

    She's going to be a stubborn one for sure :D I got induced with my first at 41w3d and 41w0d this time around. My OB kept telling me how much easier those second inductions are because, and it really was. Good luck today!!! We'll be thinking of you and virtually holding your hand <3

    Sorry I haven't been on yo update you guys but you know how these things get.

    I went in last Monday to be induced but the ward was really busy. They ended up doing an NST just to check on baby and sending me home. They offered me the gel or Foley catheter before going home to try and get things started but I opted not and just decided to enjoy the day.

    So I ended up going back in the next day (tuesday) at 41w2d. I was admitted around 830am and we got things rolling. Did the Foley catheter, didn't start the oxytocin for a few hours cause baby's heart rate was slightly elevated. I think we started the oxytocin around 2pm. The Foley came out at 130pm, at which point I 4cms. Doc broke my water shortly after that and of course that's when the contractions got real. I let the nurse know I'll take the epidural anytime. The anesthesiologist was there within an hour I wonna say. I wasn't in pain for long, felt like forever but I don't think it was lol.

    Then it was nap time. I pretty much slept the rest of the afternoon/evening. The nurse would come and switch up my positioning every now and then. I think I was 10cm around 1030pm and we started pushing for a bit but the baby's positioning was off. She was laying sideways. Doc came in and tried to turn her with a few contractions but no luck. So they told me to go back to sleep we would wait an hour or so and see if the baby would turn. I think I started pushing around midnight again, baby was still sideways and because of this my hard work pushing for an hour and a half wasn't progressing. She was stuck. Doc recommended a vacuum birth to help her out. I agreed.

    Once the vacuum was used it was 2 contractions and 4 minutes till baby girl was born.

    We decided on Sloan Elizabeth for her name. She's doing really well and big brother has been super sweet so far.

    Congratulations Dream!! So happy to hear that everything went relatively well. Sounds like the docs knew what they were doing and you and Sloan were in good hands.

    Love the name btw!!! Yay for big brother loving on his little sis. Can't wait to see some pics if you're willing to share.

    Rest up mama <3
