NATURAL INDUCTION/NATURAL BIRTH
When I came in to see you I was getting cramping. After the treatment, the cramps increased. I started tracking my contractions at 9 pm when they got really strong. I labored all night, trying to rest and sleep in between contractions. They were 10 minutes to 20 minutes apart for a long time. I started to get worried at 9 am when they were still 10 minutes apart, but they did increase in strength. I then had to get out of the house to clear my head. When I got back home, my contractions went to 4 minutes apart in an hour.
We went to the hospital and I had Lincoln in 1 hour 45 minutes. The end was quick! I gave birth at 1:15 pm on March 6.
I didn't use an epidural. I was very happy with the birth experience. It was 16 hours of labor but it didn't feel long at all. My first birth experience lasted days, so maybe that is why too :) Chelle was amazing! Couldn't have done it without her.
Thank you so much for getting the labor going! It is hard to know, but I think the treatment sped up the length of the labor too.
