Hi there!! I am almost 22 pregnant with my second. A lil background story. I had planned a water birth at home with my first, had two midwives as I moved mid-pregnancy. Labored in the birthing pool for most of the 15-17 hour labor (can't remember exactly how long, went into labor at 10:30 pm had my DD 3:45 pm the next afternoon... and math involving time is not the easiest for me) I was progressing well, feeling the urge to push, but I had exhausted myself by morning and when I would try to push.. I would push her head out a little more then it would kind of suck back in. Midwife finally decided that I was too exhausted to deliver at home and with it being my first, I consented. (DH still had faith I could have her at home, but I was really tired and wanted to have her already)
We got to the hospital at about 12-12:30 pm, where they have me and IV for fluids and antibiotics because my white blood cell count was slightly elevated. I was still able to deliver my gorgeous daughter naturally, no pain meds or anything besides the antibiotics, which I would have preferred not to have. Thankfully I didn't tear and praise the Lord I was able to deliver without being cut in anyway!
So, Dh and I talked about it this time and we have decided to go the route of UC!! I'm excited but still a little nervous since I did end up in the hospital the last time. I have just been praying a lot and trying to read and learn as much as I can!! Hopefully I will be able to learn a thing or two for you ladies here! Thanks for taking the time to read this!!!
