Had my little girl kinda long with picture

I haven't posted since thursday when i had my not so good biophysical profile. Well my doctor had me go back in that afternoon and admitted me to labor and delivery where i was given low doses of pitocin and hooked up the monitors, my doctor wanted to see how my LO would handle the contractions. I was on that for about 5 hours, and my LO was looking great. My doctor than decided to induce me at 8am the following morning, I was in labor til about 9pm and i was having constant contractions one right on top the other so finally got my epidural which didn't work the first time so had to be done again.

Shortly after i got my epidural babys heartrate went way down and they had me on oxygen. Doctor came in and looked at how the baby was handling my contractions and every time i had one her heartrate was going down and then going back up after the contractions, the epidural had slowed my contractions down. He then told me i had to have a c-section he was calling in a team to help him and that we were going to do this very fast. I then started crying and i felt like it was all my fault because i took the epidural.

They rush me through the halls and start right away and as i was laying there i looked up into the big light above me and i could see everything it was a very disturbing image i did not want to see my stomach open but i could'nt stop watching because i wanted to see her come out safely. Within a few minutes she was out screaming at 10:18 pm 12-17-10. She was 6lbs 8oz. and 20 inches long, which was fairly close to my ultrasound estimate of 6lbs 4oz.

After i finally got back up to my room over an hour later i got to see my LO and was told that the umbilical cord was wrapped around both of her legs and that her head was stuck and that i wouldnt have been able to deliver her normally either way. I felt kind of relieved that it wasnt me picking the epidural that did this and it was just the way it was going to be.

I was in the hospital from thursday afternoon until monday afternoon we both got to come home.She has her first check up today. hoping everything is still going well.

    I give up trying to get a ticker.  I have a DD that is 2.5 years old and is awesome.  Maybe I'll add a quote to distinguish myself.  Hmmm.  How about...

  • aw, i would be hard on myself too if things didnt go well for my baby, it's all about baby's safety so i think it's only natural that as moms we would blame ourselves if something went "wrong" but good to hear you are both doing great and safe :)


  • Aw congrats hun, she's beautiful!
