Updates on Patience

I figured I'd start a thread for Patience's induction. I just got my first update:

Yay preg.org is workings on the iPad! It's 8:11 pm we've been here since 3. Blood pressure has been ok since they started the induction. Looks like nothing is going to happen until tomorrow unless my water breaks on its own tonight or. The contractions pick up more than they are. Thinking of getting an ambien to sleep... They are letting me eat at the moment so I'm thankful for that...if this headache would just go away

The worst part of my induction was not getting to eat so that's great. Lots of ELV's for you!! :vibes:

I took sleeping meds with Lucas because I was only contracting mildly and seemed stuck at 4 (my water had broken on its own so I headed to the hospital a bit too early--I was excited!). Anyway, the sleeping pill relaxed my cervix or something and as soon as it kicked in, I had to push! It was a silly, weird, crazy fog. I laughed a lot during and after his birth. It wasn't a bad experience but just know sometimes those sleeping pills can relax baby right out!!!!

Do you have an epi? I was tired enough to sleep through most of the contractions without a sleep narcotic...just the epi. That said, I was (and still is), exhausted.

Epidurals makes me wicked tired too. I was sort of dozing on and off with mine even though I was there during the day.

Hang in there Patience! I hope you are able to get some rest. I've heard some people love Ambien and some people not so much so I'd be hesitant to take it also.

Thanks ladies! I will probably get a birth story posted this week....and some pics unless someone can pull some off Facebook to post....did not go the way we hoped but we did manage only having to do photo in at the end....and no epi! Very long and painful esp at the end. But sweet baby is worth it.
