I was scheduled for induction on Friday morning and was told to call the hospital at 5 am. When I called they said that they didn’t have any available rooms and to call back at 8. They still didn’t have any rooms when I called back and they told me to call back later. This process repeated for the rest of the morning. The nurse ended up calling my doctor to see what she wanted to do. My OB said that she was on call for the rest of the weekend and to have me come in whenever there was an available room. At 1:30 they had me come in to triage to start my IV and to be there for when they had an open room. I was transferred to L & D at 3:00. Pitocin was started at 4:00 and my water was broken at 4:40. I had my first contraction at 5:10 and received an epidural at 6:00. The anesthesiologist had trouble placing the first epidural and had to start over again farther up my back. The epidural was so strong that I could not move anything from just below my arms. It was a very weird feeling. I have never had an epidural that felt like that. From this point forward, I never felt another contraction or the lower half of my body. Lol! I was completely comfortable after that. I started feeling like something was different around 8:30, but my kids were in the room. I asked them to get there stuff together because I thought it was time. Of course, if you have teenagers you know how slow they can be. Lol! They finally left the room and I could be checked at 8:50. The doctor had me push through two contractions and said that I was going to tear if she didn’t perform an episiotomy. One contraction later Zoe was here. Zoe Addison was born on Friday, June 29 at 9:08 pm. She weighed 8 pounds 8 ounces and 20 inches long.
