I am so thrilled to finally be able to post this.... my son is finally here! He was born Thursday, March 4, at 6:47 am... 7lbs 7oz, 19.5 inches long. 
I had a doctor's appt Wednesday afternoon & the fluid was low, so they sent me over to the hospital to be induced... We got there about 4:30 or so & about 6, the doctor came in & stripped my membranes to see if that would get things going without using Pitocin, which I was really thankful for. Walked for an hour & waited.... then the nurse came in & said they'd send me walking for another hour & if that didn't help things get started, they'd start me on the Pitocin. As I was getting out of the bed, my water broke, and things got going pretty quickly...I was dilated to a 3 & contractions started almost immediately (Back labor... yippee!) and they were pretty intense. This was around 11pm or so, I think... 
I had wanted to go completely natural, but the contractions got really bad around 5-6 cm, so I asked for an epidural. As I was mid-contraction, the guy walked in & started explaining paperwork to me & I remember telling him to just give me the damn paper...and then I signed & I remembered later that I misspelled my own name, LOL...
After that I don't remember much... was able to sleep a bit off & on, but then it started to wear off right before it was time to push... I got a little upset when they wouldn't up the dose, LOL... The girl next door to me was delivering & I could hear her screaming her head off & it was sorta freaking me out... then before I knew it the doc came in & it was time to push... It wasn't near as bad as I had expected--don't get me wrong, it did hurt, LOL... but just not as much as I expected it to. My husband was the most wonderful support I could have asked for & I can definitely say that when I look back on the birth of our son, I have no regrets about how anything went. He is perfectly healthy with a HUGE appetite & we could not be happier!
