Hi Moms, I just want to share my birth story. Sorry it's so long. My friend 'theRN' has been getting a lot of negative feedback for posting my birth story. First of all, she had my permission to do so. Second, while she calls it the UC from hell, I must admit she's not too far off. I was 'inspired', I guess you could say, to have a natural childbirth by 'theRN'. I was about 2 months pregnant when she had her baby totally natural and drug-free. I believe I had too many hormones flowing at the time, because all I was seeing was the 'beauty' in that natural birth lol. I began to research drug-free child birth and came to the conclusion to have an UC. I made my OB-GYN well aware of what my plans were. She was very un-supportive; I quickly learned though, that there was no one on my side when it came to telling them my desire to have an UC. My friends and family BEGGED me to give birth at a hospital; they soon realized I was unwavering in my decision. 'theRN' finally gave in when it came to trying to convince me to have a hospital birth, but she begged me to at least have a midwife present. I read a lot of literature, read many stories, and over the months mentally prepared myself for my UC. It really hit home when I bought the tools for the birth. 'theRN' was finally convinced that I planned on doing everything unassisted, but she pleaded with me to at least call her when I went into labor. I had a very easy pregnancy, no complications (except the 'mommy battle scars' of stretchmarks). My fundal height would always measure a week or two ahead, but I didn't make much fuss about it. 'theRN' reassured me that that was okay; a week or two bigger wasn't cause for concern. As I got farther along in the pregnancy (about the 3rd trimester) I started to really focus on the breathing techniques I learned and readied myself for labor. I began to read more and more birth stories and felt knowledgeable on the task at hand. By the time my due date came and went I was totally 'crunchy'. My way of thinking became skewed; if I went beyond my due date that was okay, because going to a hospital would cause unnecessary intervention. At the same time I held this belief, my OB-GYN and 'theRN' were constantly flooding me with what I felt was 'unnecessary medical information'. The fact that 'theRN' was also friends with my OB-GYN kind of helped fuel the fire that if anything were to go wrong and I had to be transferred to a hospital, 'theRN' would be helping my OB-GYN make a quick buck. Looking back on it, I know it was really dumb. I was so against an induction, even though 'theRN' was constantly throwing out stats and percentages and telling me how uncommon it was to have one. When I was almost 42 weeks my OB-GYN called asking if would like to schedule an induction. I quickly told her no and hung up the phone. As soon as I hit 42 weeks 'theRN' called me daily asking if I felt any labor pains; it was always a no. I really started to get annoyed with all the 'medical professionals' butting in to my birthing plan; I know they meant the best, but I felt like my body was made for birthing a baby. I felt like baby would come when he was ready; and I didn't need any pitocin moving him along. When I hit 43 weeks 'theRN' was practically screaming at me to go get induced. She told me everything that was wrong with being so far overdue, she highlighted parts of her medical book about going beyond the due date. She told me that my baby was the the right age according to my U/S. She begged me to go get a stress test. She finally got to the point where she was begging and pleading with me to at least do castor oil. I refused and ignored her. I knew that U/S weren't always accurate, so her being a 'certified sonographer' didn't phase me (especially since her specialty had been cardiac sonography anyways). I finally went into labor on my own at 45 weeks exact at about 8 p.m. or so (or I guess I finally noticed I was in labor lol). The contractions were light and over 5 minutes so I just relaxed, drank some tea, and watched T.V.; I went to bed at about 10. I would wake up occasionally through the night when a strong contraction hit, but other then that I slept fairly well. At about 6 in the morning, the contractions were getting a little stronger, so I drank some tea and relaxed with a heating pad. I began to do my breathing exercises and read a book to calm me down. I started walking around and tried to do some light yoga. Finally I decided to go get in the bath tub. By this time it was about 10:30 and I was really uncomfortable. I sat in the water and focused on my breathing. I began clitoral masturbation to try to reduce the pain and redirect my focus. I was really at the point where I was about to give up and go check myself into a hospital, because the pain was so unbearable. My phone was in the bedroom, but I needed to call 'theRN'. I was feeling an intense pressure in my bowels and on my bladder and decided that maybe it was time to push. I got on my knees and hung over the side of the tub. I gave a little push as I contracted, but I read that pushing increases your chances of tearing, so I had to stop myself even though it felt so good to push. I started doing my breathing exercises again and I knew I had to get to my phone. I stood up and made it half way across the bathroom. I stopped and held onto the sink for support as I got into a squating position. I wanted to push and had to mentally talk to myself into not doing it. I could feel Ryan in my birth canal and I knew I was either going to have him right on the floor or make it to the phone. I got into a crawling position and crawled to the bedroom. I supported my upper body on the bed and breathed through the contractions. Some how through tears I managed to call 'theRN' and tell her Ryan was on his way. My heart was racing when I realized I was going to give birth by myself and started crying harder. Ryan was pressing on my bowels and bladder really hard and the pressure and discomfort was unimaginable. I felt the intense urge to pee, but I was holding back. I was too uncomfortable to get up, but I didn't want to birth him in a puddle of urine. I was still crying in frustration when I felt his head began to crown. I'm not sure, but I think the whole time I must have been bleeding. I knew to expect the 'ring of fire', but I never thought it would be that intense. It was like an out of body experience after that. I could feel the my vagina stretching to its limit and burning as if it had been doused in gasoline and I'm guessing that's probably when I started tearing. 'theRN' arrived sometime during this and I could hear knocking on the door, but I just wanted the baby out of me. I looked down and could see his head was out, so I knew the shoulder were the only thing that was left. I don't know how long it took for the shoulders to come out. I looked down again and noticed that they were out so I just pulled him the rest of the way. The rest of it was like blur and a surreal experience. I know at some point I must have went to the door to let 'theRN' in. She immediately called 911 when she saw the size of the baby and the amount of blood. I just remember sitting down naked on the couch and she just held me and cried and then I guess her nursing skills kicked in and she went to go find some towels and a blanket for me and Ryan. The ambulance and EMTs came and were astonished to see the size of the baby. They got me on the stretcher, but by this time I was bleeding like a slaughtered pig lol. Eventually I got to the hospital and was taken care of from there. I had lost a considerable amount of blood so they gave me some of theirs lol. I also got stitched up. I tore pretty severely; I had a torn cervix (which was probably the cause of all the bleeding)a 3rd degree and fourth degree tear along with a skid mark or two. Then again since I popped a 15 lbr out I'm not surprised lol. I had a 3 day hospital stay, mainly so that they could observe Ryan and patch me up. I don't want to deter or scare anyone who chooses to have an UC, but please don't be stubborn about going past the due date! I'm def an extreme example at 45 weeks, but I would much rather be induced then literally push out a watermelon again lol.

There was something I couldn't put my finger on with regard to the phrasing of this post and the telling of this story, so I found your friend's post for more back story.

 

http://www.mothering.com/community/forum/thread/1319222/the-uc-from-hell

 

I find it fascinating that both you and your friend fail to use paragraph breaks and use single quotes (' instead of ") around everything but spoken words.  Lots of parentheticals as well, and you both use semi-colons frequently-- both things are not impossibly rare, but certainly distinctive.  You both put periods outside of quotes. I'm sorry-- you both put periods outside of quotes lol.  You must be very close.

By the way, I didn't get through all that (or the original) because I don't enjoy reading such a carpet of text. Perhaps you could add paragraphs, so we can read your story?

After doing a little checking we found hey kingsville and theRN share the same IP, same cookie, and same computer, which tells me this thread and "The UC from Hell" thread are suspicious in nature. So, I'm suspending those two accounts and contacting them. If they can provide some sort of evidence of this story and evidence of their separate identities I will return their access. If not then we'll know this is what it seems to be.

How odd. I know several "10 month mamas" and most of them have perfectly average size babies. A few have 11 or 12 pounders, but nothing bigger than that. And a 15lber born vaginally would definitely have made the news somewhere. That size baby seems to make the news even when they're delivered by cesarean. Looking at google, the 15lb baby stories are a Vietnamese woman, a Romanian woman, a Minnesota woman & a Chinese woman.

Haha! Something about this post (before scrolling down to cynthia mosher's post) had me convinced that that the OP and theRN were the same. Maybe its because I've been watching too much Lie To Me on Netflix the last week or so. It didn't read like someone who is writing THEIR story from THEIR perspective. Posting/typing similarities aside, the "background" at the beginning especially just doesn't seem natural. Both in speaking about herself, and in speaking about.. her other self.. (heh)

I read somewhere that it is possible to be pregnant for 12 months if allowed to go that long.  Or maybe I was dreaming about reading something to that effect.  I'll have to google it.  I read both poster/s too.  Some people need hobbies...or better hobbies.  May I suggest knitting?

There was a gal in the Holocaust that was pregnant for over 12 months but it was because she was so ill that the baby had growth restriction for some time. The baby was average size when it was birthed.

There was recently a 16 lbs baby born in Texas. :) Late June or early July.

I recently had the privilege of getting to know a man who's walking across the country to end gender discrimination. He's done a lot of activism and is a member of lots of "controversial" forums. During one of our conversations he told me that he had met people hired by companies to post negative comments on websites as a way to sway people to the other side. Maybe that was the case here...

What a horrible thing to do! That's worse than trolling all by itself. Not only are they trolling, but they are getting paid to change people's mind about something they believe strongly in. Sick.

that's absolutely true.  agent provocateurs.  Cops do it, right wingers do it, lots of people do it...

you never know who you're really dealing with on the interwebs. Or, unfortunately, in activist groups or otherwise IRL.


Is it getting lonely in the echo chamber yet?

Do you have any more info on this IwannaBanRN? I have seen it mentioned on MDC before and I'd really like to read more about it.

I'll see if I can find anything. I just heard something about it in a class I took a couple years ago. There might not be record of it, because she had to hide the pregnancy or risk having it aborted or having herself be killed.

Yeah, that's kind of what I read too. I did a bit of a Google search and couldn't find anything but if you've got something that'd be great. Thanks :-)

In Auchwitz camp, there were two women who successfully hid their pregnancies and babies after their birth, but they were both regular length pregnancies. :/

I knew it didn't sound right, especially the part that "induction is rare". I've never known anybody to choose UC without a partner there and without fully preparing for emergencies ahead of time. And honestly, even if it was true, this birth sounded WAY better than my 41 week induction!

Yeah, I think maybe since it has pretty much been proven to be a bogus story it could be edited to say something like "posted by a user who was found out to have two ip addresses" or something so that when people read it for the first time, they dont automatically think its true if they dont read the comments.
