I went in for a Dr appt at 40+1 with my first, was dilated to
4. After having contractions for about a week. The Dr decided to induce
me. I had to wait til 6 to get the epidural. After the epidural all was smooth sailing!! 10 hours of labor and 2 hours of pushing!! All of the pain is so beyond worth it when you are holding your babe in your arms!! They say you forget the pain, not true!! Lol!! But the prize in the end some how gets you through it!
