was supposed to have a baby today....

Today however is our first day home. Well first full day. Sean William came fast and furious on Saturday. I had my first contraction Saturday at nine am.... by about 11:30 i told DH we better go to the hospital even though my contractions were still ten minutes apart. By the time we got there i was three minutes. They checked me and I was eight centimeters. I told them we were scheduled to have a c section on Wednesday so they rushed me to the o.r. but by the time they got me in my water was breaking and they asked me to push for five minutes. i agreed hesitantly knowing what had happened with ds 5. With him I'd pushed for three hours resulting in a csection. The doctor then had told me that my pelvic area was too narrow to push him through. So for those five minutes and no meds, i pushed, but finally broke down screaming and crying and begging for the csection. They gave me a spinal and about ten minutes later, Sean was born. The doctor who performed the csection agreed with the previous diagnosis that my body would not have allowed him through. She said she actually had to undo his head from my pelvis where it had gotten jammed. Part of me wishes things had gone more smoothly and that they'd listened to me better but overall I'm just relieved he's here and okay.

totally understandable. Hope that your little guy is letting you rest. Its amazing that even though you dont have to chase any other kids around, and have a nursing staff to take the baby while you sleep, you still end up going home still exhauseted Sad

Oh wow! Welcome to the world Sean! The hospital was asking me things like that too, why I wanted another c section...um I didn't WANT one but with my first, he also got stuck and his head engaged in my pelvis and had an emergency section to get him out. I can't have babies that way. WE kind of remember these things. They should ask us more, we know our history. congrats again! Glad you are all safe and healthy!
