Congratulations! Sorry that it didn't go as planned but I'm glad you're both doing well.

Dd#2 was OP most my (very long) labor and the pain was horrendous (ended up HB transfer CBAC, and she wasn't healthy). Dd#3 was a very easy hospital VBA2C, she was in a good position and the contractions were so much easier that it wasn't until I was 7cm that I really believed I was in labor (had prodromal labor all weekend before she was born)

My midwife was telling me there was a recent study released where they took u/s DURING labor and found that babies still turn around quite a bit even during active labor. So just cuz she was born OA doesn't mean she was there the whole time. :

I'm glad you have such a positive attitude about it. Sounds like it wasn't too bad other than the pushing on your back and tearing. btdt. Bring home a sitz bath if they offer you one. Or just get in the tub several times a day.

Hope I get to meet her!
Asynclitic? Off to Google...
Dh says she had her hand by her shoulder and he thinks that's what caused the tear.

That's probably why it was taking so long, too. She may have had her hand up above her head of something so she couldn't engage until she moved it down. KWIM?

Goodness knows her hand is always in the way now that she's out.

Was that Methodist you went to? How did the nurses treat you? I did my midwifery practicum there, and it was at least cool that they had midwives, but some of the nursing staff was pretty stubborn about doing things their way. Beautiful baby, by the way!!!

I think they assumed that I'd know all about staying in a hospital and I didn't. For instance, I didn't find out until our last day there that I could go to get Lina when it was time to feed her instead of waiting for them (2 nurses with 5-6 babies at a time) to have a chance to bring her to me. (She got bililights which is many levels of stupidity*, but the doctor's fault not the nurses fault.)


(*many, many,....many, many levels of stupidity)
