I also had my son today. Escher Riley was born at 4:37 pm after 5 hours of labor. He came out weighing 11lbs 2ozs and 21.5 inches. Don't ask me how I did it, but pushing was the hardest thing I have ever done!!!!!!!!!!

Oh my gosh! I'm so proud of you and happy for you! At one point I actually thought "why was in a hurry to go through this?"

Baby boy born about 5 hours ago in a birth cabin nestled in the middle of orchards in the mountains of Israel. Was a planned homebirth, but decided after a few days of labor and then waters breaking in the AM yesterday morning, with labor on and off into the afternoon to get a change of scenery. I considered goign back home right up until the end...but decided that we were here and it was best to just stay put.

 

Birthed after about 24 hours of active labor (my longest birth yet...4th child!) on hands and knees on the birthing cabin floor. :) Now THAT was a DAMN hard labor!

 

He's perfect, B"H. I'm doing very well, B"H. Daddy and baby are resting before he drives us home. I, of course, can't sleep! I'm on a birth high! :)

 

Thank you ladies for all of your support along the way. Reading your stories really helped me to focus in on what was happening to me and not feel so alone...espically since he was born 4 days "overdue."

 

With blessings to all of us!!!

Finn was born this morning at 6:45am via C-section.  I'm happy with my birth experience. I labored for 22 hours without any pain medication and almost no pressure from the doctors to get things going.  Water broke at 9am yesterday, and went to the hospital with my husband and doula at 12 for the Strep B antibiotics.  I progressed really quickly, and was 9cm at 9pm, and that's where it got bad.  My contractions slowed to every 7-10 minutes, and while still painful, were obviously not doing anything.  At 1am, I was given the choice of epidural to relax, c-section to get it over with, or pitocin.  On the advice of my doula (who is a saint and wonderful), I started pit to try and get contractions back up to speed and hopefully get fully dilated.  That was the worst pain I have ever experienced.  By 3:30am, I was 10cm and started pushing. I pushed for 2 1/2 hours, and nothing.  Finn was stuck in the birth canal. In the end, he was not going to come out with the section.  However, I am totally comfortable with my decision. I did almost 22 hours without any pain medication. I was in charge of my birthing, and was lucky to be in a hospital and with an OB who gave me another 1/2 hour, and then another, and then another, until it was obvious that changing positions and getting in and out of the tub and shower and moving around was not going to make the baby come vaginally.  He came out healthy and whole and started breastfeeding right away.  And! He's adorable. 

 

May we all have the birth that we want, but if we can't, may we all have the one that is best at the time.  Finn 2-25-12.jpg
