After the baby failed two BPPs in a row at 41 weeks, my midwife and I decided we needed to induce. Basically by the time I got in my room and everything to start the induction it was like 9pm. I was 3cm, 50%, -2 on admittance. They started the pit and I had contractions, but no real labor pattern. Even when they got regular, they were really not that painful even with the pit all the way up to 10. Me and my doula walked the halls and I was able to talk and walk and laugh so I wasn't real surprised that a few hours later I had made like no progress. At around 3am my midwife went in and broke my water. At first she was able to walk with me and my contractions were getting harder and a little more intense. Then they got really, really intense. I tried the birthing ball, walking every position on the bed, the tub etc and nothing gave me any relief. I'd say that's when labor really started. So at 4am I got an epidural and my midwife went to the sleep room. That epidural really gave me the shivering shakes! My bp started to get too low so they had to give me medicine to bring it up. Around 5:30am I told my doula that I felt intense pressure in my bottom so we called the l&d nurse and I was 7-8cm, 90% effaced, 0 station. A little after 6am the pressure got unbearable and I was like I have to push now!!! So my doula called my midwife on the cell and my husband called the l&d nurse. I remember I kept saying "is my midwife here yet" where is she?" and I literally felt like I had to hold the baby in till she got there (which in reality was like a minute but felt much longer) the l&d nurse got there first and said I was complete and told me to start pushing. I told her no I wanted to wait for my midwife, who walked in seconds later. I knew this baby was going to come out quickly. My midwife helped me undo my top so we could go skin to skin and then she told me to take a deep breath and just ease the baby out. The l&d nurse started counting and me and my midwife both simultaneously asked her to please not. I took a deep breath, exhaled and she was out! Her apgars were perfect and I didn't tear at all. She laid on my chest until the cord stoppped pulsing. Then dh cut it and I delivered the placenta.

Congratulations!  What a lovely name!  Scarlett would have been my son's name, but he's a boy. :-)
