    I understand better in timelines so I wrote everything in my phone as it happened and here it is:

    Sept 29
    12:30 PM - Doctors appointment - Still 1 cm, 60% effaced, decided to go ahead with induction.
    7:45 PM - Called the hospital, they were a little busy, said they'd call us when they could get us in.

    Sept 30
    2:30 AM - Hospital called - They have a room saved for me!
    2:55 AM - Left home for the hospital
    4:20 AM - First assessment - 2cm almost 3cm, little more than 60% effaced, baby engaged.
    5:00 AM - Cervidil placed
    8:00 AM - Went walking, a lot of pressure.
    10:30 AM - Contracting 2-3 minutes apart.
    5:00 PM - Cervidil out, 3cm, 80-90% effaced. Took a shower and ate dinner.
    7:00 PM - 3 cm, 85-90% effaced, pitocin started.

    Oct 1
    1:00 AM - Stronger contractions from pitocin FINALLY kicked in.
    1:15 AM - Water broke.
    2:00 - 2:45 AM - Epidural in, Foley placed, BP dropped to 80/50, baby's HR dropped, Ephedrine given and pitocin stopped. Recovered fine and pitocin restarted slowly.
    5:30 AM - 5 cm, 100% effaced, 0 station
    7:45 AM - OB in, says if we can't turn pit up to get me into active labor without baby HR dropping, might have to C-section.
    8:00 AM - 9 cm, 0 station, baby's head molding at +1, A LOT of pressure starting in bottom, VERY painful, re-bolused epidural
    8:45 AM - Started pushing, said it would probably be 2 hours and he'll be here.
    9:24 AM - LIAM WAS BORN!!!

    So that's my timeline! All in all, everything went great. When his heart rate was dropping it was really scary and they were so busy running around, I had no clue what all was going on. Poor DH had left to get a snack, nothing was happening, he comes back in the room and I'm on oxygen, flipped on my side, 4 or 5 nurses in the room. I was in tears so he asked for me if everything was okay and they told him it was now. Then I had to pretty much lay on my sides the rest of the time, baby wouldn't tolerate me on my back. When my OB came in and said that about C-section, I was so worried because I knew she wouldn't say if it wasn't a last option. The funnest part to me was DH standing at the end of the bed pushing both legs back while I pushed, at one point the nurse said, okay keep pushing and left the room to go get something, we did but I think both in the back of our minds were like "what if he comes out???". The bad part of the whole thing is the epidural wasn't working enough in my "area" so I was numb in my hips and down my legs but nowhere in between!! And baby delivered face up so the pressure on my ((TMI)) rectum was HORRIBLE!!! That was the worst part of the recovery was the pain I still had there afterwards. I was so tired that once baby was born, I'd start to cry and then the blinking would make me start falling asleep. And DH was in tears so that made me cry worse! He ate wonderfully right from the start and hasn't stopped since!! And in the end I got the delivery I wanted, no family, just DH and I and it was great - we'll definitely do the same next time.

    Congrats on the birth of Liam, he's adorable!

    That's crazy that it took so long for the pit contrax to kick in for you (it was much faster for me). Your pushing phase went really fast for a first birth and having an epidural (mine was an hour, and my MW said that was fast for a FTM with an epi)! I'm glad you had a good experience and you got your sweet little boy!
