...All of that pain made me clench my bum, which is what I thought might have been holding my dilation up...but even after the epidural I was still so slow to dilate. It took me over 2.75 days to get to 4 cm, then 2hrs to get from 4 to 10. How ridiculous!
That is so crazy!! I've seen it happen in so many birth stories and am just amazed every time! Of course, the first 4 cm doesn't usually take so long. You really endured a doozy of a labor!
Glad to hear BFing is going well. Hope you get out of the hospital today and are able to get some rest at home.
