Post Re: feb mommies 2010 - Part 1

Hey Honey & Feb mommies. I actually had my little Noah last Monday (the 8th). It was a crazy weekend. I woke up Friday morning spotting. It continued throughout the day so I called the doc. She said as long as I can feel the baby moving, it's fine, probably just my cervix opening. This continued thru Saturday (when we also got 2ft of snow so I was praying it wasn't labor) and Sunday, I my mucus plug (or so I think) came out. Around midnite Sunday nite-Monday morning, I started having contractions. Got to the hospital around 4am, was 4cm dialated. I got my epidural around 7am (6cms) when my doc ditched me to go do a hysterectomy. She intentionally stalled on having my water broken until she was done. Well, by the time she wanted to deliver him, he didn't want to come. Labor stalled a little at 8 cm, doc eventually left the hospital to wait on patients at her office, and the baby's heartrate kept dropping with each contraction. The nurses had me flipping all around on that bed to get into a position the baby liked. I eventually delivered after 3 sets of pushes. He's small for a 39 weeker (5lbs 13 oz) but adorable! Physically, I've been doing great. He's breastfed exclusively and handling that well. I'm just enjoying the time off from work and time to bond with my boy!

Honey, take it easy with the blood pressure- that can get serious. Though, if your doc chose to put you on bedrest vs having the baby then, it must be under control. It sounds though like you're gonna be having a baby this week! Good luck with everything and post back asap! Take care.

Finally, I have news. Lillian Dawn was born on Feb 26, 8 lbs, 8 oz. I love her, she is perfect.

the birth was complicated. The inductions didn't go well. They gave me cervadil two days in a row the petocin the third day. I went into labour with the petocin but it wasn't progressing so they took me off and sent me home for two days. I went into labour on my own, but it kept stopping. went back to the hosptial (we're now on day 6) and they induced me again with petocin. This time I was actually progressing all day. I got an epidural after 7 hours of contractions. They checked me about 3 hours into the epidural and she had actually curled up and her head had gone back up! So it all ended with a C-section, and let me tell you, recovering from a C-section is not fun, especially after all that labour! But it's worth it because I just love my daughter so much.

So there it is, I just made it as a Feb mommy.

Congrats Honey. Sorry you had such a horrible labor/delivery but I'm glad everything turned out ok.

I'll see you all at the infant board:-)
