My birth Story
Had brown show on 10/9 .. Went in but no contractions So was discharge fed. 11/9 - bloody show and happen to have Gynae appt so went to see her as per normal n 1cm dilated. She ask me to be warded also coz my water was low already. So went to labour ward at 12noon to start being induced! Man all the poking really hurts plus the drips. So I was oxytocin n mummies.. Like what my friend advise.. Take epi coz that makes contractions regular n more painful. But after like 3 hours.. Still 1cm dilated. N I didn't take any pain relief till 3cm. Gynae came at 5pm to break water bag.. N it started feeling weird n even more painful the contractions. That was when I had epi. Mummies, the number of contractions you have is not equal to how much we dilate and I was stuck at 3cm for hours!!!!
Hence labour ward 12 and delivery 5! Just like another mummy. Sorry cant rem.
another word of advice.. dont't lower epi dosage coz when increase again, it made me shiver so badly but maybe coz I was like 8cm n counting dilated.
