Isaiah's Birth Storey

Jan 29, 2011 - 10 comments

SO I know people normally have these wonderful birth stories...mine really didn't work out that way =( It really was horrible...other than the fact that I got my beautiful baby boy.

On Friday Jan 21st I went to work after being there for about 30 mins...I started having ome painful contractions. I really didn't know how to time them but just didn't feel like it was time.  I worked through the morning..ok more like sat at my desk lol I decided to leave and come home at lunch time. I got home and the contractions seemed to slck off a little bit but I noticed some spotting..very little. After everyone telling me all day to call L&D I finally did and they said to come in and get checked.

DH and I dropped my SS off at Grandma's and went in. They put me on a monitor and you could see I was having contractions but they weren't really painful but I could feel them. After about 20 mins on the monitor the dr came in and said that there was a spot where Isaiah's heartrate dropped during a contraction so they were keeping me and I was gonna have him. She told DH it woud be a little bit to he left to go get clothes for my SS and pick up our bags and feed the dog.

DH returned I was already in a room it was still early around 6-7pm...and they gave me oral meds to help me go into labor. They meds made my contractions stronger but after a few hours I was still only 1cm dilated. So the proceeded to give me a second dose of the oral contractio were already 2-7 mins apart at this time and they continued to get stronger but when the checked me a few hours later I was still only 1cm. So thats when they decided to give me pitocin(sp?) I really was againist having it because I had read alot of bad things about it. Well I started to get contactions that I couldn't talk through...I was just trying to breath...they gavve me something in my IV that made me pass out but I would wake up for every didn't touch the pain..and I would pass back out!!  They came in to check me again....yep you guessed it I was still only 1cm the contactions were not dilating me at all. Since I was only 1cm they wouldn't give me an epidural. I was able to tolorate the pain until around 430 am and at this point it was unbearable and they still have the pitocin going but would no longer give me anything for pain. I was crying asking for something as that sat there and talked about maybe they should have went a different route. At this time is when Isaiah's heartrate started to drop with my contractions I think he was reacting to my stress and pain. They started trying to make me move on my side which at this point the pain was out of control I was begging them to please stop moving me....It was really horrible I am not a sissy lol They decided shortly after to take me in for an emergancy c-section...they said hubby couldn't come with me!!  They threw a hair net on me and I was off they dragged me onto a table I was freezing and still having horrible contractions and they starpped me to the thing I know it was 1130am the next day. I was just coming too.Isaiah was born at 5:58am Jan 22,2011 he weighted 6lbs 2.9oz and was 19 1/2 inches. Hubby was in the room with me and showed me pictures of our beautiful little boy. They brought him in the room around 1230 and I finally got to cuddle with my little man.

I am so sorry it wasn't what you hoped it would be, but you are right... You got your beautiful little boy out of it! I do t think any birth story is really beautiful. I still remember my labor from almost 10 years ago like it was yesterday and it was not pretty at all! No drugs because I dilated too fast and my baby came onto the world with his momma screaming like the exorcist! My throat hurt for days after!!! All that matters is your little man was safe and healthy... And because be was it is a beautiful story!

I'm sorry you had to have such a traumatic birth experience! I hope your recover quickly and love that little angel to pieces! After my first unplanned cesarean, I struggled for a very long time and I still do, but you have to just love the outcome and accept that it was out of your control.

Rest up and enjoy the babymoon!

Yeah I can't help but feel slightly robbed of the birthing experience but in the end all that is really important is I have a healthy little Boy. He is knocked out in my arms :) IfI had to do it all over again... I would in a heartbeat to get him here safely and healthy.
