Need good thoughts update #15!

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
After 40 hours of laboring at home and being at 4 cm the entire time (including 6 hours after my water broke spontaneously), we decided to forgo the homebirth plans and get an epi for some rest (I haven't slept in 3 days). Got to the hospital this morning at 5am, got an epi, started pit, they eventually turned it up all the way and i never got past a 5 or had strong contractions (according to their little monitor). The baby is posterior and the head is acynclitic so after speaking to our midwifes and the doctors, everyone thought it best to go ahead with a c-section. It's scheduled for 20 minutes from now, so I'd like good thought vibes that everything goes well. I'm sad, but know that there was likely nothing else we could have done and have accepted it. Dh and I cried, but are excited to meet our baby. I'll try to keep the announcement thread updated as soon as possible. Good luck with your babies!

Can't wait to hear about your LO. :

I totally understand about having to readjust your birth plans. I am very sorry. Allow yourself the time to process it, and don't feel badly for needing it. There are days I still feel a little cheated.

I am most glad that you no longer have to labor and can meet your LO, get the rest that you need, and enjoy your family. I'll be thinking about you andpraying everything goes (went) well.

a big from your DDC

I hope your c-section went smoothly and you are enjoying bonding with your babe right now!

I also had a hospital transfer from a planned homebirth, 2.5 weeks ago. The end result was my absolutely perfect daughter, which is what I focus on when I feel sad about my birth being so different than I'd planned. I hope you'll find the same comfort in your little one!

I'm sorry things didn't go according to plan. I hope you recover fast from the c-section. Welcome to your little one. Hugs to you, Mama.
