Induction In Progress

Hi,

I checked into our hospital at 8pm mountain time. I was 4-5cm and stretchy, 80% effaced, and at 0-station. Cervix still a bit posterior though. They started me on the pitocin at the lowest dose. She said they usually start it at 4 units (or however they say it) but they are starting me at 1.

The contractions are just now starting to get annoying. Not bad yet, but I'm sure they'll get there.

I've been awake since 4am so I'm already pooped. I might not give updates til after I sleep, (after the birth). But ya never know. TTYL!

Here's a little to whet your appetites:

Maxwell born 7lbs 6oz, 19.75in long, APGARs of 9 and 9.

Labor and delivery were pretty easy. I had some postpartum hemorrhaging again but it wasn't nearly as bad as with my last birth. The meds they used to stop the bleeding worked. But they also made me really sick. I was vomiting like crazy, my BP and heart rate shot up. And I had a miserable morning lol.

But an easy labor and delivery made up for that. Smile I'll post more later.
