Update on friend situation

For those that wanted me to keep them updated on my friend that is having a small baby and was getting induced today. She ended up getting induced this morning. I just got a text from her and she is 8cm and 95% effaced. She was shooting for a natural birth, didn't really do anything to prepare for it though, but at 5cm ended up getting an Epi because the pain was just too much for her. I'll update again when she has her little boy. I'm betting it will be around 1.

Haven't heard any more news sense 11:30. It was at 11:30 she sent the text saying she was at an 8. I'm nervous for her having not heard anything for so long. I'm hoping all is well and they are just relaxing a bit before sending out any more texts. This friend is more like a sister to me than my real sister that's why i'm so nervous for her. I'll update when I get more information. I just have a feeling it ended bad, though i think a lot of that just has to do with my nerves. Here's to hoping I get some news soon before I freak out. lol.

I have a friend that was induced in June. She got "stuck" at 9 and "needed" an "emergency" c/s. Fingers crossed she doesn't "need" one too.

Okay. Finally got some news. Not much but it's something. When I visit them, today or tomorrow, I will have more but for now this is what I have; momma and baby are doing good. Baby weighed in at 4Ibs 14oz. I'm guessing baby was born vaginally with how mommy looked but I will know more later. Thanks for your guys support. I probably would have driven DH nuts just talking to him about it! I'm glad I have you guys to come to about my stupid problems. Smile

Yeah that's the one. He is just a little bitty thing. We are going to visit them tomorrow. Baby boy from what I've heard is good and healthy just tiny. His mom was only 90 pounds when she first got pregnant though and I doubt breaks 5' tall. I still wonder if her dates were wrong but he doesn't seem to show any signs of being premature just very small. I'll I can figure if dates were right is that her uterus just couldn't grow to fit a baby any bigger so baby just couldn't grow any more. Her body was already showing huge signs of going into labor on it's own anyway. I just feel bad she had to be induced and baby is so tiny. We'll see how much hospital time baby will have.

BTW if dates were correct she would have been 38 weeks tomorrow.

Momma was really tired, I'm sure it's mostly to do with the narcotics they gave her, so we haven't had a chance to visit. Sad I'm bummed about that but totally understand. Being induced also takes a lot more out of your body then natural labor does as well and then add all the family they had visit them, which from what I understand was none stop, she wasn't up for friend visits. So we wait till she is ready.

They did get to go home yesterday, and even with little Aiden weighing just under 5Ibs they let him go home as well. They were very blessed about that. From what I understand baby and momma are doing good. Mom and dad are exhausted but they are doing good. I'm not sure but I think they were having problems getting baby to eat but they might have solved that sense they let him go home.
