Wanted to give a quick update for those wondering. After laboring (easily I may add) for 12 hours, contractions were about 2-3 minutes apart and I had my husband check me and he found a prolapsed cord in the bulging sac of waters. So off we went to the hospital and baby was delivered by emergency c-section. Everyone is calling him a miracle baby. Will update more later, we just got home and are resting.

I survived 16 mos! Ask me about breastfeeding a baby with posterior tongue tie, high palate, and weak oral motor skills- whew!

I'm impressed with your ability to handle that stressful situation, it sounds like you were prepared and knew exactly what to do if a situation like that arose.

I agree, you handled that wonderfully. Are you doing ok emotionally? I know how hard it can be to have a birth go completely differently than planned. *hugs*
