    Epidurals are amazing. I tried all natural best I could, but my pain tolerance level I just couldn't take it anymore. Not hating myself though. Proud I made it to 3 cm with pitocin and a cervix that was NOT ready. I'm so tired so sleeping as much as I can. Was 4 cm dilated and 80%effaced when he checked me after epidural. Coming right along.

    I'm at 5 cm dilated now he stretched me as far as he could and I had a TON of water pour out, now got a catheter in and I've started leaking amniotic fluid so yay for progress! Pray/send positive thoughts fora vaginal delivery ladies, with my condition a c section would.not be good.

    Well birth plan didn't exactly go as planned, at 7 cm dilated and 70% effaced my cervix was swelling and he was pounding his head so they decided to do c-section.
    At 11:53 pm Russell Lee Pike 4th was welcomed into the world at 9 lbs. 1 oz. And 21 inches long. :D
    I am over the moon :cloud9: he is so beautiful will update with a picture as soon as I can.

    Good luck to bump buddies Amsan and October2013, y'all got this! Even if your birth plan doesn't go as well as you want. :)
