At my OB May 15th, my dr had decided to induce me the next day due to my blood pressure. I went in to the hospital at 6:30 am Friday May 16th. They started me on pitocin around 8. The furthest I got that day was 3 to 4, but Michael was not engaging his head. He was determined to not go any where, so my dr took me off the pitocin around 6 pm and let the contractions back down. They did give me something to help soften my cervix and let me rest and get something to eat for the night. By a little after 8 the next morning, I was dilated to 4, so they broke my water and by 1:38 pm Saturday May 17th Michael Ray was born. He weighed an even 9 lbs and was 21 3/4".
