Hello my lovely bees!!! <br />So finally it’s time for my birth story. I really felt for awhile there that I would never actually write a birth story, especially considering that my son was 9 days late. Which may not seem that late be for me, it was an eternity!!<br /><br />Now for those who know my posting style, I’m sure you may have an idea what to expect. For those who don’t know what type of bee I am, this birth story will be 100% real, TMI, overexposed type of post. If you are not interested in my honesty this post is not for you and you should click away.<br /><br />For those of your still reading I’ll begin. <br /><br />So my due date was May 18th and it came and went! The following day I had an appt where my doctor told me if I don’t go into labor on my own, I would be induced on May 26. We knew early on that my son was a big baby so my doctor order a non stress test and ultrasound to be sure my little guy was okay to stay in there until the 26th. We checked out A-okay! So as much as I hoped I would go into labor on my own. There I was Monday evening making sure I had everything in order so we could head to the hospital to be induced. <br /><br />Once we got there I started to get super excited!! My baby could be here any minute….wrong lol!! Before giving me anything they monitored the baby and I. They said I was having contractions all on my own. I didn’t even feel a thing so I thought this was cake…wrong again!! Around 8pm they gave me something to thin out my cervix after that the contractions got strong but still bearable. <br /><br />But once it came time to sleep I knew I needed something to ease the pain. I honestly don’t even remember the name of the drug they gave me but my god it was wonderful. DH was laughing soooo hard because I got sooo loopy. He was laughing so hard I apparently found him to stop laughing because they would hear him and take the drugs away from me. Lol that’s how good the stuff was!! <br /><br />In the morning I was pretty okay and thought we would begin pushing soon enough…wrong! Do you see the pattern here lol. My doctor came in and told me I was still closed! But after he checked me my water started to leak. The nurse then had me sit in the rocking chair to so that “gravity could make things go faster” and boyyyy did those contractions get BAD and the fact that I was leaking and couldn’t shower made it worst. The contractions got so bad that I asked for another dose of the drugs they gave me the night before so I could sleep. I was hoping I could sleep until it was time to push. The drugs knocked me out an hour or two. When I finally woke up my mom was there and the contractions were sooo bad that I was crying like a little baby.
Now I really didn’t want an epidural but the contractions were so painful that I screamed for one lol. The ten minutes it took for the anesthesiologist to get there felt like 10 hours!!! I was super scared to get one because of all the horror stories about it but also because I didn’t want the epidural to wear off by the time it came to push but they assured me that wouldn’t happen. I fell back to sleep until the contractions woke up. I began screaming, crying, shaking, the whole 9. My doctor came in and I was finally 10 cm so the nurses got everything ready for me to start pushing while my doctor went to finish deliver a baby.
So my feet are in the stur-ups and I start pushing and I can tell nothing is happening. 35 minutes later I tell the nurse he’s not coming is he? I can tell he still really high (which is one of the reasons why they wanted to induce me in the first place) and she tells me I’m a first time mom it’s gonna take awhile but that he’ll come. 10 minutes later I demand a c-section!! Keep in mind my doctor is still delivering the other baby and is not in my room. So this other nurse came in to help and she PISSED me off! While I was crying from pain trying to push she’s telling me to not make noises because that wasn’t gonna help. I yelled at her and told her that I wasn’t going to push anymore and that I wanted a c-section. She went on to tell me that my doctor was delivery other babies and wouldn’t give me a c-section just because I don’t wanna push anymore. I looked her right in the eye and told her that she better get another doctor in here and give me a c-section because I wasn’t going to push any longer!! So in comes this other doctor and I straight up told her don’t try to convince me to keep pushing because I’m not and you need to get him out now!!! Thankfully she listened to me and my doctor heard that I was going to have a c-section to he told the other doctor he would do it.
We get to the OR and at this point I’m freaking out and in a major amount of pain. So they get me all set up and BTW I had no idea how small that table was!!! Once the meds spread I began to shake and could barely breathe so they gave me a oxygen mask and I tried my best to stay calm as they did they thing. Then I heard the sweetest little cry.
My doctor as well as the other doctor who was there told me I made a good move because he was way to high and they would have had to do a c-section in the end. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY LADIES!!!!
Matthew was finally born!!! He was 9 lbs 10oz and 22 inches!! BIG BOY! We knew he was going to be a big boy but not that big lol. I asked my DH who he looked like and he said me. My DH was a wreck, bawling his little eyes out and then he came over with our baby boy. The moment I laid my eyes on him I knew that was my baby! The baby I dreamed about and he was perfect. I cried and cried. And cried some more. It was such an amzing feeling. I was a mom.
We go back to the room and let me tell you it felt like a football was between my legs! I was soooo swollen down there and the amount of blood. Jeez it was bad. The next day it was so hard to get out of bed and every time I did I felt like I couldn’t breathe for the first few seconds. I didn’t want a s-cestion because I knew the recovery would be tough but that first poop was a HELL!!!! It was like trying to shit a knife. Blunt but true! But it finally happened and after that I tried to just walk a lot and get myself feeling better.
Once I was able to shower I felt like a million bucks!!! I put on my own robe and actually brushed my hair lol
Friday afternoon we were finally able to go home and MJ has kept are hands super tied ever since!!!
I really wanted to explain more but I would have never got this done so I figured you ladies can just ask whatever you like and I will try my best to answer.
He’s like mom get out my face!
He is the most amazing little baby and we are so blessed to have him!
