My contractions were coming pretty regularly and strong yesterday, but I was getting lulls sometimes. They started me on Pitocin last night at 10pm. It didn’t bother me at all for awhile. The contractions felt like period cramps.
I had a cervix check at 11:15pm. 2-3 cm, very thin, and baby’s head right there. I thought by this morning there would be more progress, but no. 😦 I’m trying not to get discouraged.
The pain level has shot up big time in the past couple hours. I started crying around 6 am because it was so intense. Feels like cramps on top of cramps that could rip my body apart. So much pressure and they last long. The nurse gave me an IV pain med but no epidural until I dilate more. The pain med helped a little, but I’m still having a really tough time.
I hope I can do this. I gotta be strong.
