Jocelynn: Dilated to a 9 w/o epidural and little pain. I was scared to push, got an epidural (at a 9) and had her vaginally. 13 hour labor.
Vivian: Dilated to a 6 w/o epidural. She pooped in her water, was facing posterior, I was in horrific pain and got the epidural at a 6. Labor then stopped, I was put on pitocen, I pushed her out in a few contractions vaginally, without her head ever getting into the right position. NICU team was present at time of birth. 12 hour labor. Later I found out I had a dermoid cyst the size of soft ball that weighed 5 lbs on my ovary which most likely contributed to such a horrible labor. That was removed 8 months later via c-section.

Every baby is so different. You think you know what your future has in store for you, but you really don't. At least that's how I feel! Here are some pictures of Oliver from 5 weeks ago.
