I went in for induction at 9am yesterday and by the time they were ready to start pit, I was contracting on my own. No pit. No epi. At 3pm AROM and he was born at 5:26pm in the fastest, most overwhelming, dizzying birth I've ever experienced.

9 lbs, 5 oz, 20 1/2 inches

Unfortunately I had a pretty severe PPH and ended up getting a blood transfusion last night, but I appear to be rounding the corner today and should be in a post partum room by this afternoon and hopefully going home tomorrow.

Congratulations and welcome, Mateo!

PPH is fairly common in multiparas, I'm glad you're feeling okay and hope you get to go home tomorrow!

Love the name! Get lots of rest in the next few days. I also lost a lot of blood from the blood thinner although did not need any interventions. The dizzyness will get you though so take care of yourself!
