So, after 4 weeks of bedrest due to gestational hypertension, and a threat of induction, my water broke on Mon night and I delivered my beautiful baby girl naturally on Tues afternoon. This was quite an experience! I didn't think it would be like this but everything went well. Except for the back labor! I never thought my baby would be posterior and the mw was telling me that the baby was in the correct position. But I give any woman credit for being able to handle back labor! IT's AWFUL!!! I got to the point of not being able to deal w/it anymore when the nurse suggested water papules. The MW injected sterile water into my back in four places. After 1 minute the back labor was basically gone! I couldn't believe it! It only lasts about an hour, but what a godsend! At the point when she injected me I was 7 cm and after 10 min I was 10cm and ready to push! I had my baby after 1 hour of pushing. I can't believe all of it! I am so happy to be a mommy. I am trying to get used to the sleep deprivation. But she is so very worth every minute!
Take care ladies and remember water papules if you have back labor.
