My labor and delivery was fast and went wonderfully. I was induced due to the coagulation disorder and as with any induction you never know how it may go. Luckily for me I've had two perfect inductions and two heathy babies as a result.
When I arrived on the morning of 8/26 I was 3cm dialated and 75% effaced so it seems Landon was making some good progress on his own. Dr. Z broke my water just before 8am and Pitocin was started. Contractions came on much faster than with B and much more intense. Dr. Z came back to check on me at 11:30 and I was 4cm so he headed back to the office and I thought I'd catch a nap. Heck, why not, could be my last one for awhile. My epidural was in so I was comfortable.
75 minutes later the nurse came in to check on me because Landon's heart rate was a little erratic. Turns out he was really low and I was fully dialated- 4-10cm in less than 90 minutes. Since I was so numb I asked to wait to push and they turned off the epidural. An hour later and 4 pushes sweet baby L graced this world.
I'm feeling incredibly blessed. I've always dreamed of being a mom of boys- football Sunday, grass stains and worms. Yup, I dig it all.
