went in 11/3 for arom I was 3cm and 60%, walked the halls til about 4pm and made 0 progress. I agreed to try some pitocin and literally had what felt like 20 contractions which were bearable, like no big deal, my previous labors we much more intense and long. Nurse checked i was 7cm and 100% about 5:45 and then I had a few more contractions and used the peanut, I was shaking and the nurse said i was in transition, I was like yeah right, lol. Sure enough I was. I told them I needed to go #2 , and just let me up to go and they said, no "that's the baby", it was actually a bit comical. DD was born 6:21 pm, a little less than 11 hours from when they broke my water. She was 9lbs 5oz, 21 inches. No epidural, second pain med free birth. I wasn't thrilled about using the pitocin but it really did help and we had no complications.
