    Good luck
    Would have been nice for the dr to talk to me about this earlier in the pregnancy, but as I said, I'm being induced tomorrow at 7.30am. There's nothing that can be done now. I'm just scared about tomorrow.

    Just thought I'd pop in and let you know how things went. It can all be summed up in one word, fast. Established labour started at 10am with contractions 4 minutes apart. They ok'ed the epi and the anesthetist was walking down the hallway to my room at 10.43am, right when I had her. There was no time for any pain relief other than gas. Yep, it hurt! But I have my beautiful girl now and she's worth every single second of pain. x
