We went in Friday evening for misoprostal (sp?) Since my cervix was still long. Baby contractions started that night. At 330 am my mucus plug fell out while i was throwing up in the bathroom. Contractions became stronger.
By 630 am I was dilated a little more and the contractions became more painful.
I had back labor. Slowly over the day i dilated to 6cm with agonizing contractions. In the evening i stopped making progress and was in near constant pain. We decided to start pitocin so i could get the baby out. It made the pain worse and wasn't making dilation much better. Avi was still really high so wasn't pressing on my cervix.
I was miserable and with some tears opted foran epidural. I was exhausted and needed relief. So after 14 hours of back labor i got the epidural. Over Saturday night and early sunday I got some sleep, almost finished dilating, and the contractions were strong enough to push her down.
With some maneuvering by the midwife and myself we were able to turn her from posterior position and get rid of the cervical lip.
At 1230 I began pushing and at 142pm she was born weighing 9lbs5oz at 21.5 inches long.
