The morning I went into labor was just like any other. I had on and off contractions for days prior. Slept the entire night and woke up feeling great. I even told my DH to go to work that I felt our DS wouldn't be born yet. Luckily my DH decided to work at home that day. After preparing breakfast I decided to lie down for a bit when I felt two strange taps. I went to wash some dishes when my water broke at 7am. This time it didn't hurt at all and in fact it was exciting. I knew that I would see my DS that day. So all of us including our 1st DS drove straight to the hospital. I was admitted at 8am and started having some contractions but nothing terrible. At that point I was almost 4cm dilated. Once they transferred me to my room the contractions started to intensify. I can't describe the horrible pain I was feeling I've heard that labor is painful. This was extreme. When the contraction would start I literally would scream that pain was that severe. The nurses and my DH were trying hard to get me to breath properly. For the life of me I couldn't the best I could do was to repeat any words over and over again. I'm embarrased by two things and I can't forget it it the screaming and exclaiming that I had to poo! How embarrasing!!! By 930 I was fully dilated but before I could begin to push I was bleeding. My ob immediately rushed me into surgery for now my second emergency cesearean. I had a 4inch abrupted placenta. Which in hindsight explains why the pain was soo severe. I did it all without an epidural and am grateful. The nurse said they knew something was wrong by my screaming. Thankfully we are both ok. Unfortunately I googled "placenta abruption" I didn't realize just how grave our circumstance was. I'm at peace with what happened and both DH and I decided no more children. I'm not tempting fate a third time.
My both terrifying and embarassing delivery.
That is scary, I'm glad you were at hospital. I yelled out "I need to poo!" w/ the birth of our first, jumping off of the bed & waddling to the bathroom when I should have been pushing because, hey, that's what it feels like. Our last baby I made LOUD goat noises the whole pushing phase. Congratulations on a healthy baby!
