My Labor Story!

So I took some Castor oil about 7:00 p.m. because it put me into labor with Makynna and I wanted to see if it would work again. About 10:00 p.m. Friday night I started contracting and they were coming every 3-5 minutes apart but not really getting any stronger. Alexis was a quick labor so I was getting nervous sitting at home so about 12:00 a.m. we want to the hospital. When we got there I was at a four and still having my contractions every 3-5 minutes apart. They didn't really hurt so I decided to try to get some rest. About 7:00 that morning the nurse came in to check me and said that I was only at a 5 but my contractions were dying down to every 7-10 minutes apart. I was so sad. My other labors were so quick that I expected more. My doctor finally came in about 12:00 p.m. and said that he could either break my water or watch and see what my contractions were doing. Without hesitating I said to break my water. After that and a little labor juice (potocin) I had Bailee at 3:25 p.m. on Saturday. The best part is that I only had to push for 5 minutes and she was out. The worse pain of my life yes I did it without a epidural. Half way through pushing her out I thought to myself why on earth I would choose to put myself through that sort of pain. Oh well I feel awesome and can't believe that she is finally here.
