My Birth Story - LOOONG - Page 2

post #21 of 31

Wow, what an incredible birth story and what an incredibly strong mama! Having had a traumatic birth experience in the past, I know that it takes time to process it and to heal from it.  Just know that you did a phenominal job. Thank you so very much for sharing your birth story. Great, great job, mama! hug.gif

bow2.gif  What a strong mama you are.  I felt all your highs and lows with this story.  Little Anika is so, so lucky to have you as her mama.  I hope you find some healing in writing it out, and thank you so, so much for sharing it all with us.  We love you and are so very proud of you.

 

Welcome to the world, baby Anika!

Yes!  This!  This is so well written, I agree wholeheartedly.  You and the papa bear are awesome treehugger.gif

TEAR!  Congratulations on your baby girl!  You've been popping into my head the past few days, so I thought I'd come by and try and see what was going on (I remembered you were due in August).  I'm beyond elated for you and your husband!  It makes me feel so good to "see" your happy ending.  I know the birth didn't go as planned, but it sounds like you were a trooper and you're keeping things in perspective.  I'm so glad you got to go home, things are always better after you get home.  Enjoy your babymoon!  XXOO

oooooh, enjoy your sweet little daughter and keep in mind how strong you've fought for her so far. every birth doesn't go to plan, either does motherhood.....it is so incredibly important to be able to roll with the punches and adapt in difficult situations. you have done that in stride, and it sounds like without compromise!

 

    i hope your are snuggling up little anika right now.   joy.gif

Yeah, that!  Tear, I'm so happy for you and your family.  It's fantastic that she's doing so well, and I'm so glad to hear that you are focused on the positive.  Your story made me cry too.  You must have been so scared, and having the monitor hooked to your cervix must have sucked, and you came through it bravely.  Congratulations on your baby and on your strength!

Thanks for sharing your story, Tear!  I'm so happy you and Anika are safely home where you belong, and you are enjoying time together.  I'm sorry the birth went the way that it did, but you seem to have the right attitude about it - the end result is what is important, and you both being healthy is all that matters!
