Well, my babies have arrived....

I made it all the way to my induction date, which had been moved up due to my perinatologist wanting to be there. After a week of trying to induce labor on my own, I was happy to check in at the hospital at 6:50am on Monday, October 10th. The IV fluids were started and at about ten to nine in the morning my OB came in and broke my water, the fluid was clear (indicating that baby was in no distress) and pitocin was started. I was excited, my stepdaughter came in to keep me company because DH had an exam to do that morning at 8:45am so I just chatted with her and helped surf for jobs for her.

Mind you I was about 2cm dilated upon check-in, so at 4pm when I was only dilated to 4cm I was a little discouraged. Mark was still head down but at a -1 station, pretty far down, but not far enough. My OB thought it would be a long night, so we hunkered down, oh, and at that point with contractions circling to my back, I got my epidural. So much better after that. I used to be anti-epidural, but later on
