Well my little boy is finally here, arrived on the 9th. 7lbs 2.6 ounces 21inches.
On thursday i went in for bp check and it was too high and so i went back at 2pm for cervidil insertion and admission to be induced and monitored, it worked well i went into labor within hours, by the am i was 4cm dilated and 90% effaced but baby was still high.
Friday late evening they decided to start pitocin, god that stuff is gross,
he started to have drops in heart rate, so they put an epidural in,
hoping it would relax me and solve th eheart decels, but it didnt.
They stopped pitocin, and waited for an OR. So waited all night and
2am saturday he was born!!
When he came out his Apgar was 1, so scary and sad specially when i am in this cold OR with this drape over me. All i wanted to do was see him. Within 10 min his apgar came up to 8 and daddy brought him over to visit me before i went in to recovery.
The 2.5 hours in recovery was torture, not only was I not feeling well, but I couldnt wait to see my son.
FInally at 5am I got to see him and he is the cutest thing ever, I thing...but I am biased. hehe

You did it, congrats! My sons heart rate went down also so they had to use a vaccum to get his big head out. At one point his heart rate was down to 60 & dropping, if they diddnt cut me & use the vaccum I would have had to had a c-section, but all went ok. I'm proud of you, can't wait for pics! Enjoy your lil one! =D

Thanks everyone. I am so glad he is finally here.
I was 40 weeks along and fairly hypertensive. I was really not wanting to be induced but didnt really have a choice, I mean I could have refused, but I wasnt doing well and didnt want it to affect baby. Of course, as usualy induction turned into c section. I am glad he is here happy and healthy.

Aww.. I'm glad you guys are doing well. I'm sorry you ended in a c-section. I know how bad those suck. I had one on the 31st of last month... Pretty much for the same reasons....

I was only in recovery for 1 hour but every place is different..

Congrats on the baby Smile

Congrats! I'm sorry your induction ended up in c-section. I don't think that most inductions do but it's always a possibility. Can't wait to see pictures of your little one!
