I just wanted to say thanks to everyone that answered any and all of my questions. I went to the hospital at 5 am and was at 2 cm. They monitored me till around 7:30 and I was at 3 cm, they decided to keep me at that point. At 8 they broke my water, by 8:30 I had gotten my epi, since my back labor was so bad I couldn't do anything but cry. By 9:30 I was at 5cm and was able to take a nap. Woke up around 11:30 with lots of pressure in my butt. Was checked at 12:30 and was at 9 1/2 cm. We started practice contractions 10 minutes after that. At 12:51 pm my beautiful baby boy was brought into the world! Weighing in at 5 lb 9 oz and 18 in long. We have been home since the day after, and everything is going great. I have a 2nd degree tear but not doing to bad. Just wanted to update everyone and let you know how things were going.
