I was induced Sunday 7-7-13 at 6:30pm. They gave me cervidil that night. The next morning they started Pitocin around 9am (I was still 2cm but 90% effaced). At 12pm I was begging for an epidural bc when we started the inducement his head was already engaged to the point the they did an ultrasound they couldn't get a pic of his head. Anyways when I got the epidural at 12 I was 3cm. They checked me again at 12:15 and I was 5cm. Again I was checked at 12:45 bc my blood pressure was low and at 12:45 I was 10cm. They had me start pushing at 12:50 and he was born at 12:56pm. 11 pushes in 6min. He weighed 6lbs2oz and was 19in. He looks identical to his older brother. All three of my other children adore him! I have had so issues with my BP, swelling, back spasms, and bleeding since I had him. I am starting to feel better now except for the spasms.

Woot!  Congrats, man just reading that brings back memories of the....fun times...of labor.  Near the end only words that went through my head was "god hurry and get out of me...focus on the food network channel"
