Well, I was 10 days overdue. They broke my water at 9:00, checked me at 10:00 and nothing had happened, so they started me on pitocin to get the labor going. That worked!! And very quickly. I started pushing at 1:25 and had my daughter at 1:58. Breaking the water was easy, the doc just put this thing that looked like a knitting needle up there and broke it, I really didn't feel anything at all, except the gush of water. The pitocin kinda sucked. It brough labor on hard and fast. I had to have a shot of nubain because it just came on so fast. After that shot I was ok though, because it wore off slowly over about a half an hour, and then I did the rest by myself. I had HORRIBLE headaches afterwards though, but Tylenol took care of them. All in all, not a bad experience!!
