Well, my induction did not happen. This guy had other ideas. My water broke on Wednesday night, and I rushed to the hospital. I was in labor all night Wednesday and all day Thursday, and after about 22 hours, my doctor said that my kiddo wasn't dropping, and I wasn't dilating, so we were off for a C-section.
At that point, I think my body had gotten used to the epidural dosing, and I just couldn't. I couldn't push for a few minutes, let alone a few hours, if I was going to feel it. I was really relieved about the C-section, and after it was over, I am a total C-section convert. I am healing well, and I'm not in too terribly much pain, and it was so quick and easy.
So, Matthias Antonio was born at 10:23 pm on April 12. 6 pounds, 11 ounces, 19 inches long, and absolutely perfect.
