my birthing experience
I posted last Wednesday (i think) that I was hoping I was in the early stages of labor because of what I was going through one morning. Well here is the result.
Tuesday through Thursday morning I was struggling through irregular but painful contractions. I finally decided to go to the ER because of the pain on Thursday morning, because I knew I wasn't going to make it in that much pain to my induction at 7. Turns out I was 5 cm dilated. I was admitted. Got an epidural. After about 5 hours, I was ready to push. I pushed and pushed for 2+ hours until my doctor said there must have been a reason that I couldn't push out the baby (after he had kept making dips in his heart rate all day). I had an emergency c-section. Turns out the cord was in a not and kept pulling back baby at every push, and he was sunny side up.
I am now home, struggling to try and poop :/ but happy. David was born Friday Morning at 3:38am 7 lbs 14 ounces.
He is adorable. Congrats!!!
