Miriam June arrived on Sunday January 18th, MY BIRTHDAY!, at 3:55pm, she weighs 7 lb. 8 oz., 20 in.
Briefly my water broke 8pm Friday night, Saturday morning I took castor oil, labor started at 10am, got to the hospital at 4pm, nipple stim, etc. because contractions weren't strong, agreed to pit at 4am since I had only progressed from 4cm at arrival to 5cm 12 hours later, tried the tub, by 8am I was completely exhausted and only 7cm so I had an epidural around 10am, slept for a few hours, woke up, quickly went from 9-10 and pushed out my baby girl in 55 min! Without the epi and the sleep I don't think I could've done it so I don't feel guilty in the least And it must've worn off because I pushed like a crazy woman, and felt everything. I'm not a very loud person but I really yelled. Loudly, lol. I think I pulled some stomach muscles too because they hurt worse then my bottom with a dozen or so stitches.
