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.
