So I went to the hospital yesterday because I was having contractions every 3-5 minutes. I was 2 cm dilated. They monitored me and I started vomiting. she checked me again and said I was 5 cm and I will be having my baby. They put me on the epidural. I was checked by another doctor (male) who said I was actually 4 cm and baby is still high up. Another doctor (who works with my doctor) came and confirmed this and started me on pitocin. A few hours later I was checked again by male dr who said I was now 7 cm, but baby is still high up. They increased pitocin. Then I feel like I have to use the bathroom so badly. They just catheterized me an hour ago gave 400 cc of urine. They told me you don't have to go its just the baby. I knew I had to go badly. The nurse gives me attitude and says that she will do it this time but she cant keep doing it. I gave up 900cc of urine and she apologized. Someone else checks me and says I'm really 6 cm dilated baby is still high. They stopped pitocin and said epidural most likely stopped my labor. They keep me overnight, I've been there since 7:30 am. Next morning they said my contractions stopped. I get checked by the senior resident who says I'm 4-5 cm!!! So they are going to send me home. After going through the pain of epidural and not being able to eat in 36 hours. I'm so upset. Now I'm home and contractions are 1-2 minutes apart. I don't even want to go back to that hospital.

Oh man......try walking.....a lot! Has your water broke yet? Are labor pains so bad that you cannot walk? Is there another hospital that you can go to rather than the same one?

Hello so yesterday I was having contractions all day. Then it started getting more painful around 10:30. Around 1:30. am went to the bathroom and there was bloody show on the toilet paper. Went to labor and delivery contractions started getting worse. I was admitted and told this time my son will come today. Got epidural again lady stabbed me 5 times finally gets it in, only its not working to dull pain. She had to call someone else who got it in after 3 tries finally. Now just waiting for the baby to come yay

Oh MAN!!! You are having a rough go of it. I hope you have the baby soon. Rest up, they don't call it labor for nothing. Sorry just trying some levity here.

No baby yet on bed rest. Doctor also gave me script for tylenol with codeine. Also found out I have a UTI from being catheterized so much. I was urinating blood for 2 days. I hope he comes very soon!

I understand the whole 'stubborn baby' issue, Marie!

Like LM said...lots of walking (if you can), and just try not to stress out!

I'll be thinking about you over the next couple of days...Hang in there, keep us (or me, at least) posted!

Saw my actual doctor today. She said I was in false labor and the baby was too high up so they weren't even supposed to put me on the epidural and pitocin until they knew for sure he was ready to come. She said it happens alot with subsequent pregnancies. It feels like real labor then just stops. Now that I am 5 cm when he's ready to come it will happen very quickly. Hope I don't give birth at home! He's being stubborn..Have horrible back pain due to the epidural.
