going into labor!40w&6D

First time pregnancy and I thought it would never happen! I've tried everything to naturally induce but nothing seemed to work. Started contractions at 2:30am got to the hospital at 3:30 only 2 Cm but my water broke from a cervix exam. I got an epidural after reaching 5cm & don't feel ashamed. I was in so bad pain my blood pressure was rising & I was uncontrollably shaking. I'm so much calmer now & still contracting consistently 👍 praying for a smooth  delivery
