Just a quick update since I have never been more exhausted in my entire life.
I went into labor at 4pm on Wednesday and labored at home for 32 hours never getting past 3cm. The contractions started 5 minute apart and easy to cope with. By midnight they were 2-3 minutes apart and crazy intense. By 4am they were either two minutes apart or stacked one right after the other with no break....worst ever. We did that until 11:30pm on thursday when i finally said i needed to go to the hospital. I hadn't slept and I was throwing up all fluids and solids. I intended to get the epi,get hydrated and sleep, but they refused to do a TOLAC (hate that they're using that phrase) unless i got an ultrasound. Going through all of this while contracting was the worst experience ever. It almost seemed like they were doing it to make me suffer. So anyway, the u/s estimated him at 12lbs 1oz, but I was still ready to fight for the epi and sleep before a decision was made. Our midwife who I trust more than anyone sat us down and talked to us about the pros and cons and actually said she would do the repeat csection based on all the info we had...not just the size estimate. We agreed to the c/s, but I wasan emotional mess. After all that intense laboring I was going to get cut open... I finally got the epi at 4am and Keegan was born at 4:24. I spent an hour with him this morning but he has been in the nicu since then because his oxygen levels were low. I miss him.
