Still pluggin along over here. They broke my water around 2:15pm, I was 2-3 cm dilated. Boy, did that feel NASTY!!! Fluid just kept gushing out and it felt like I was peeing myself. After that happened, the contractions really started coming harder and faster and got painful, to the point where I had to breathe through them. I asked for an epidural, waited, asked again, waited some more, still nothing. It took ridiculously long for the anesthesiologist to finally make it to my room. Then, of course, my spine had to be difficult. I have a deep arch, so no matter how much I pushed back to open up the space between my vertebrae, it just didn't open very far. They FINALLY got it in after like half an hour of super painful contractions. They checked me after I got comfortable and I was 4cm, 90%. That was at about 4:00. Let me tell you, I have a high pain tolerance, and labor without an
epidural hurts like a BITCH! lol Now we just wait some more... Hair still looks fabulous.
