At 11 am, I was at a 6 and I let them break my water. Finally around 3 pm I went for an epidural (my first). I hate needles with a passion but I was literally crying at the pain. I had 3 easy labor and deliveries before so this was new to me. I was able to sleep for a half hour or so, then pushed her out in less than 5 minutes. She's preterm so she's being observed in the NICU, but so far she seems very healthy. 6lbs, 12 oz. 20 inches. Olivia Marie. And she is so precious!
