Finally its OVER! Thank God.

I went in for my induction on Monday August 2nd. We were in our room by 5:30 am. The nurse had my IV with pitocin  started by 6:25am. I was having contracts but nothing big at all. My Dr. came in around 7:30ish am and broke my water. Within 10 mins the contractions were actually starting to hurt. I trudged thru them like a champ, if I may say so myself! LOL By 8:15 they were every two mins and were kicking my ass! So I asked for the epidural. Took the dr. FOR EVER to get there.At least that is how it feels when you are have crazy contractions. Finally got the EPI around 9am I will say. She checked me as soon as I laid down. The nurses eyes got really wide and she said "wow your ready to push" I didnt believe her. I said " WHAT???" haha. Everyone had me hyped that when you are induced its a hurry up and wait game. No wonder why i was in so much pain. I wish I would have known I was dilated and ready to push, I would have by passed the EPI since it really never took full effect any ways. My dr. was there before I knew it, and we started pushing. WOW was it intense feeling Jayce come down the birth canal. The pressure was crazy! It didn't really "hurt" it was just a CRAZY feeling.He came in just a few pushes. Was born at 9:56 am! Talkin about a quick birth! Thank god everthing went without a hitch~ I do have 2nd tear so I have stitches. No biggie though! He is a breastfeeding champ, up every 2.5 - 3 hours to feed. So far everthing is great and I LOVE being a mommy of 2!

JAYCE THOMAS August 2nd 9:56 am. 8lbs 21 inches

I'm not sure yet.  I told my doc I at least wanted to wait until I am past my due date (8/17) before considering induction.  I really really want to go into labor on my own this time.  Last time I was 4 days past my due date when he induced me.  I will probably set a date just in case though (probably somewhere around 4-7 days past my due date)
