My surges were 2 minutes apart when we arrived at the hospital and I was in an incredible amount of pain. I was only 2 cm dilated and the baby was not descending. It was pretty intense and they soon noticed a huge heart rate drop. I was rushed in for an emergency c section immediately which was good because there was a full knot in the cord and meconium in his lungs. The extraordinary measures saved the babys life... not to mention my husband immediately flagging the docs when the heart rate dropped.
So. The bells palsy, the very overdueness, the extreme intensity of the labor - the uterus was fighting the baby basically and the pain was excruciating. So much for my uc haha. That went off the table with the bells palsy and thank goodness it did because we needed the hospital. This was so not where I saw myself ending up but I love my baby boy all 8 lb 6 oz of him. I hate that I have to. recover from a c section but all my expectations and plans went out the window day by day and hour by hour and I can only be thankful for my amazin husband and sweet little Manny. Love to all.
