24 hrs in

It's been a productive 24 hours. After an evening of cervidil, I started having contractions on my own at 4 am this morning, 2 to 4 minutes apart. They increased steadily throughout the morning. At 10, they started me on petosin to give my contractions a little help. Around noon, I had a nonstop cluster of contractions with a very large baby moving around, at which time they broke my water. At this point the pain got intense enough from the petosin, I accepted the offer of an epideral. Now, 24 hours in I am 4 cm dilated, fully effaced and ready to go. As long as I keep progressing I should have baby by morning.
