Carter Michael Vargas born December 8,2012 at 4:53am at 5lbs 5 oz via ergency c section
~~ Birth Story~~
On Thursday Dec 6 , i went into the hospital after my blood pressure was dangerously high. After being in triage for a while , Carter had some deceleration and that worried doctors enough to admit me as well as my pressure being so high and not stablizing. On Friday , they decided that it would be best to deliver Carter early even though he was 35 weeks and 5 days . So Friday afternoon they decided to start my labor and started my pitocin and man were those contractions serious! They also decided to put in a follie bulb in my cervix to dialte it which hurt soo bad ! They also started me on mag sulfate so that i wouldnt have a seizure during the birth. After I dilated 5cm , they broke my water which was clear! About an hour later after the pitocin was started i got my epidural which took forever to put in but when i was in i LOVEDDDD it! At around 430 a team of doctors rushed in while i was asleep because Carters heartrate dropped so low that it was almost undetected by the monitors which freaked me out so the had me on my hands and knees as they turned off the pitocin and began to massage my belly! It was the scariest thing I have ever experienced especially since i stopped dilating at 5cm. At thst time my wonderful doctor determined that the best thing to do was to take him immediately. Once we got into the OR they found his heartbeat again and at 453 i got my early Christmas present ! After the c section , the dr told me that there was no reason why he had issues because he was in perfect position and his umbilical cord wasnt wrapped around his neck , he just wanted out ! They also said that maybe because of my hypertention , that my placenta wasnt functioning properly .
