We didn't quite make it to November, and now I'm SO glad!
I had contractions off and on for about a week, so I went back in to my dr office to get checked (Oct. 24th) and I was already 4cm and 70% effaced. I walked for a while and went back in that evening with regular contractions 3-5 minutes apart; but didn't have any change. My midwife recommended they give me something to help me sleep and get things going better in the morning. 6am got pitocin, 8:00 they broke my water and turned the pitocin off. I labored on my own till he was born at 11:22am. We didn't know what we were having, so we were very excited to meet our little boy; we have 2 girls as well.
