Here is mine.. I was going to wait to tell all of you this but I decided to go ahead and do it.
We went in at 10:30 for a 12:30 section. When I got there my b/p was 155/101 and was not going down. They freaked. Finally after some fluid from the IV and a LOT of laying on my left side it came down some but not all the way. They got me all preped and off we went. My mom was also able to go in there. We go in and the get me ready for the spinal. For some reason this time it hurt really bad. It took him about 10 minutes to finally get it done. so they layed me down and started. The dr pinched my tummy to see if I was numb and I felt it a little but just passed it off as "pressure". It seemed like it took forever for them to get to JD. They got to the uterus and cut through that and the my water broke and it shot up in the air. (my mom said that it was quite funny) he was so big that they had to get the vacumm extraction out just to get his head out. I felt his head come out and then I could see that dr that was assisting him standing on a stool pushing as HARD as she could down on my belly trying to get him out. Finally I felt a huge relief and I could tell he was out. He gave it a really good cry. They showed me to him and said "awhhh he has red hair" I was like "WHAT?!?!" it was kinda shocking. (later after they washed his hair the figured out it was really blonde just looked red from all of the blood) he was perfect. Shortly after that I started to feel pain not the "pressure" from before. It was horrible. On the left side I could feel everything. I could tell that my uterus was outside of my stomach and I could feel it go back in. They almost didnt get it back in. It was pretty scary. I could feel the stitches and then I could feel the staples on the outside. So I pretty much felt everything on the left side of my tummy. I was about to go nuts. The dr gave me meds 3 times to try and get rid of the pain and it never went away. It was horrible. I bled quite a bit so they couldnt do stitches and I ended up with a drain. I finally got that out on the last day. Monday I go to get the staples out.
JD was and still is perfect. His blood sugar was a little low so he had to have some sugar water but that was it.
He was 9lbs 4 oz and 20 inches long.
