Well I was induced Tuesday and it went well. I was already at 4cm when i got to the hospital, and I progressed so fastly with the pitocin that i received my epideral bearly in time and went from a 7 to the 10 in like 30 minutes and my epi wasnt completely working. I only pushed for 15 minutes and she was born. The dr barely made it there in time.
We got home with her on Tuesday, 5lbs and 14oz.
I still have horrible swelling in my feet and I dont know why. The swelling went right away after the birth of my other two children so i'm alittle worried. The are just as swollen today as they were when i was pregnant. Is there something else that could cause such water retention in feet?

Pictures! We want pictures!

(I don't know anything about the swelling. Mine were really bad one day and now I'm careful to sit with my legs up as often as possible. Do you have a footrest?)
