I was just thinking about this today. I am happy that i stuck it out for a med free birth of a 10lb baby and didn't tear at all , sure we joked he would be that big,even when i saw my midwife for my 6wk check she was shocked at how big he was said she didnt think he felt that big.
I would change alot of things about his birth :(.
Like ignoring the L&D and just waiting for DH to get home and drive to the hospital we should had delivered at.
It took a good hour before i was even taken into a room for a u/s to try and find out why i was bleeding and passing blood
clots. DH had a hour drive and arrived before they took me back. Oh i also think it helped that i called the other L&D and loudly
asked if i should leave to drive down there. I was pissed bleeding and passing clots is a emergency and they took their sweet time getting me back to a room for a u/s.
I would have not agreed to let the Dr break my water at 7cm.
I wish i would have pushed harder on refusing the pit after birth that they gave through the iv ( i had tested GBS +) saying it was
routine policy.. i wasn't bleeding enough to need it.
I wish the Dr would have not tried helping the placenta out faster, I even actually said to not pull on the cord and honestly it looked like he was pulling on it
he said he wasn't pulling on it.
I wish DH would had taken a picture of the placenta, it was huge. The Dr commented on its size and said it was going to pathology because of how big it was.
