Had My Amazing UC!!

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 

Hey all -- I've been quiet for a while, but I've been lurking and reading, praying and wishing you all well.

 

I just wanted to let you all know that our beautiful baby boy was born on May 30th in the early morning at home, unassisted as planned, after a marathon over 30 hour labor (I am SO grateful I wasn't in the hospital for many, many reasons -- one of which is I would have gotten a "failure to progress" label slapped on me for sure).

 

His daddy caught him and although the labor was much longer than I expected (our first, a midwife attended homebirth,  was 6 hours of active labor from start to finish) it went exactly as I prayed it would.

 

He had a nuchal cord wrapped three times pretty tightly but pinked up immediately and cried almost instantly. Placenta came out almost instantly in one piece, I bled very little and felt great afterward. I did use some Shepherd's Purse tincture after the placenta came out for extra reassurance (even if only psychologically lol) ETA: oh, and NO tearing either! I'm amazed by what God did for me in answering my prayers :)

 

We had zero issues at the doctor (took him around 48 hours) and registering the birth was a piece of cake (the only two things I stressed over lol).

 

I praise God so much because it was my faith in Him and His design/plan that supported me Spiritually through all this. I can honestly say that even though the labor was HARD WORK (as in, why does anyone choose this, hard lol) I was never once fearful during the entire thing. I just knew everything was going to be okay and I truly believe God provided me peace in that area.

 

I'm working on the birth story but just wanted to let you all know!
