Met the doc who has been on call all night. Very nice lady.
She came in to break my water. 5:45 AM. Unfortunately, when she was starting to examine me, things didn’t feel right. Enter sonogram machine. Check to see if he is actually head down still. Mama prayed A LOT during that sonogram. He is head down but his head is towards the side instead of in the middle. They will not break my water because that will risk a cord prolapse of his head isn’t engaged.
So… Pitocin is coming on board. Words can’t express my disappointment. I know the nastiness of pitocin and had hoped to avoid that pain. I’ve been managing this current pain and was even able to nap a tad. Now, I know what’s coming. 😦
If you’re reading this, please pray specifically for the following:
1. Contractions to become focused and regular.
2. His head to engage.
3. Once his head is engaged, labor to progress as quickly as possible.
4. Pain management since I am not having an epidural.
