My C-Section.... Fetal Distress!!! Blue Baby
Birthing center... planned water birth, MW attempted to break my waters at 6 cm, nothing came out, they assumed my waters had broke night before.
Got to 10 cm
They told me to start pushing anytime I wanted.
I would bare down and the urge would go away, I kept telling the MW"I cannot do this, something is not right."
She told me over and over that this was a normal feeling with a first baby and we would just wait it out until me and my body were ready for pushing.
Labor stoped, contraction every 7 minutes, I kept telling them I could NOT do this, something was just not right.
Transfer in Ambulance to local hospital!
given IV, pitocin, ect.. the whole nine yards, NO epi!
My sons HB droped to 20 BPM, I was rushed in to the OR, having absolutly NO IDEA WHAT WAS GOING ON!
Told to sign a paper to be knocked out. General!
I remember looking up at a mirror and seeing a tube in my vagina, and them rubbing benadine on my belly. Out I was.
Seen my child for the first time over 17 hours later.
After my E-C-S I found out that I had NO fluid what so ever inside me. The doctor (
as wonderful as he was
) told me that had I even ONE TIME PUSHED, my son would not have made it. He had his cord around his neck 3X and it was so tight that the OB had to clamp and cut before he could even pull my sons head out of my uterus. My son was a 'blue baby' and had to be revived after birth.
My son was in the hosp for one week, anti for one week after discharge. He had meconium in both his lungs. I have pictures of him that my father took as they were wheeling him to the nursery and he was so sick looking, he was still at that time BLUE.
The OB was a very 'old school' doc, worked in 3rd world countried, has books out, and he did disolving stitches... still to this day you have to "LOOK" to see my scar
I in no way shape or form regret this C/S! I am so sorry for women who DO NOT KNOW THEY HAVE A CHOICE when it comes to VBACing though!!!
