Oh no! Do they think the fever is caused by some sort of infection? Have they broken your water?

Yeah they broke it about 3hours ago it had some mecconium in it .... Once they told me that I had a feeling things would go south . They put a cath near the baby to measure contractions strength . Baby is big for me so I figured that's why I wasn't going to dilate. It was measuring 7.9 at 39 weeks, I'm 5"0

They just upped my pitocin, my blood pressure is kinda low right now. Well it's been low all day. It's taking forever to do anything I know the epi probably slowed this combined with the baby siZe

Don't fret too much about baby's size, I'm also 5'0 and I have had babies 7, 8, and over 10lbs! Sometimes it just takes a long time to get things going, especially with pitocin. I had to be on the max dose of pitocin with my 10lb baby, he wouldn't engage and it was a very long labor as well. Hang in there!

That baby shouldn't be too big at all. I'm shorter than you and pushed about a bigger baby than that just fine :)
