I was scheduled for induction on September 24, 2017, for 10:00pm. I arrived to the hospital 30 mins early, just so I can get settled and sign all the paper work. They started me on fluids as soon as I got their and told me that they would start cytotec (a pill placed in my vagina to help prepare my uterus) at midnight.
12:00 pm, the nurse came in and checked, I had not dilated and when she checked me she placed the cytotec. I was instructed to no get up for an hour. This was suppose to give the pill time work.
At exactly 12:50am, I had to urge to pee. I got my best friend to unhook me because I could not wait those 10 mins and I went to the bathroom, she hooked me back up and I went to use the bathroom. The nurse came in to fix the cords and I had the urge to pee again. I went right back to the bathroom. I was peeing without force but did not think anything of it.
Right at 1:00 am, I said calmly to my best friend, “Wow something just popped inside of me,” a few seconds later, I said calmly, “wow a gush”. Lol! She immediately jumped up and called the nurse. I told the nurse, I think my water broke and she said, “No, that can’t be it. That has Neve happened that fast.” She checked me and when she pulled her hand out, it was full of amniotic fluid. She said “wow that definitely was your water”. She told me the contractions may pick up soon so try to get some rest.
I was too excited I could not sleep. The contractions started but nothing too unbearable, just felt like mild period cramps.
Around 9 I asked for an epidural. Only because I was only 4 cms and I was getting discouraged. My nurse came in at 11:30 to check me and she said “Congratulations, its time, you’re at 10 cm”. I immediately started crying.
This is when it got hard for me.
My husband was there holding my hand, my mom was on the other side and I pushed for exactly 2 hours. I just could not get the hang of it. I was so tired and begging for an epidural. Thank God, they did not let me. At 1:41 pm on September 25, 2017, my Demi Solei was born weighing 5 pounds 6 ounces and 18 3/4 inches long.
