Here is my birth story. My water GUSHED at 10:30 pm on the 21st of October. I took a shower then drove to the naval Hospital(my husband is not able to drive on base right now). The contractions started but I was only at a 3. After about 4 hour they checked me and I was at a 5. I was in so much pain, I got the IV pain meds and slept for about 5 hours. I had planned an unmedicated birth, but that didn't happen. A few hours later I asked for the Epidural. It took them 3 tries to get it in correctly. Then all it did was make my legs not work. I still felt EVERYTHING. I could feel the monitors and the catheter going in and out with each push. Laynie was being stubborn and would not drop so I had to push from a -2 station. I pushed for 3 hours before she was finally born. I got a 2nd degree tear and I hemorraged. I was proud of myself because I did not feel any fear or panic about the hospital(like I usually do). It really helped that my husband was talking me through it and helping with my breathing(we did not get moved over here in time to do childbirth classes). Laynie Claire was born October 22, 2007 at 5:11 p.m. She weighed 8 pounds 13 ounces and was 21 inches long. She has long brown hair, chubby cheeks, my nose and lips, and long fingers. The hospital staff
said I was having problems with milk production so they gave her a bottle. She latched well until then. They told me I needed to supplement and I was worried and didn't know any better. We have been to consultant after consultant and she will still not latch now. She FIGHTS it and everyone who tries to help. I tried pumping for the first week, but it was causing contractions so bad that I was doubled over in pain for 3 days. I couldn't hardly walk. I have no choice but to bottle feed now, it's the only way she will eat. Labor was the worst pain I have ever had in my life, but it was so worth it!!
