Lurker[thinking of Birthing Naturally so kinda stalking you all]
With my first I kept telling my OB that something was wrong my bp was wayyyy up and I was so swollen, my feet & hands have strech marks still! I asked for second Opin's and all the doctors said they agreeed that I was fine.
A week later they had a new doctor and my doctor happend to be on vaca, he told me I had to have the baby within 24 hours or I would have a c-section, he told me he didnt want to scare me but that my bp was so high he was afraid for my life and for hers. I was put on bed rest as soon as I was admitted they didnt want me to move or strain, I was put on oxygen, had a cathater [since I wasnt allowed to get up], they gave me meds to start and speed up labor [made me feel very sick]
I labored almost instantly after being given the meds. I had her semi naturally, they put in an epi 23 hours into labor, the medicine only took on one half of my body and wore off an hour later as I was giving birth.
She was 4 weeks early, healthy at birth but had many issues after around 3 months. She is still smaller than most her age she is 22 months [almost 2 yay] and wears 12mo old clothes. Mentally she is brilliant (:
After that I clearly picked a new OB, my father told me to sue my doctor kinda joking but serious at the same time, I didn't. But I did find a new hospital, and I think I found the perfect doctor this time. Currently trying to TTC #2, and heavily thinking on doing a natural birth, but want to keep the hospital close due to my complications last time.
Im a worry wart. =/
