Had a surprising labour
Had a surprising labour. Had contractions at work and home for 14 hours. Went to L&D. No dilation, 60% effacement.
Stayed in, another 6 hours later we got to 2cm dilation. It was depressing at this point but...
Another 1.5 hours later he was born. The last hour and a half was quite frantic.
The pushing was effective, he came out easily although I was a bit afraid.
Minor natural tear to perineal skin, not muscle, No problem healing.
