Hi friends if anyone wants to read
I started early labor Friday evening. Was able to sleep through the night with just a few contractions that woke me up. Had contractions all day Saturday. After much discussion with our doula, she finally came down around 11pm Saturday night. Labored all night Saturday. After I felt like I'd done everything could at home we grabbed our bags and went to the hospital.
We were admitted to the labor deck at 6:30am Saturday morning. I'd made it to 6cm and 80% which I was super excited about. I was only expecting to be around 3 or so. Labored through the rest of the morning. I made it to 7.5cm and 100% by 2pm and just had zero energy left. I hadn't slept in the past 36 hours. So after trying one dose of IV Fentanyl I made the decision to get an epidural.
Took the most glorious hour & a half nap of my life. Then the midwife broke my water around 4pm once he had finally dropped down some more. He had hung out around -2 station all freaking day.
By 5 I was starting to feel pressure but was only at about 8cm. By 6 I was complete and we did a couple practice pushes and immediately called the OB in the room.
I had a pretty "light" epidural and was actually able to change positions well. So after a couple different pushing positions, He was born at 7:02pm. He weighed 8lbs6oz and was 22.5 inches long.
A couple labor & delivery pictures in the spoiler if you're into that

Awesome ourcrazynavylife! Your labor length was just as fun as mine. I agree that the epidural sleep was the best and probably the only reason I had the strength to get M out. C is gorgeous, you are blessed!
