Hello! I was browsing breastfeeding websites when I came upon this one. I am 25 and married with one beautiful boy baby (Eliyahu!) who is nearly 5 months old.

I am a SAHM, but I am different because for my next delivery I WANT A CESERIAN. My L&D experience was extrordinarily long (4.5 days of active labor) and painful, and as much as I want kids, I never want to do that again. *sigh*.

At any rate, I'm around looking for people to talk to and make friends with. Thanks to the internet, I can socialize without trying to find a way out of the house (a task in and of itself!).
So, hello out there

Rynna

Rynna, Mama to Bean (8), Boobah (6), Bella (4) and Bear (2)

Rynna, WELCOME.........

You might find there are a lot of mommy's trying hard NOT to go through the whole c/sect thing........ I've had one and am trying to avoid it this time round.


Welcome to the club!

I've had quite a range of birth experiences. (no meds more than pitocin, demerol) my ds in 9 hours, in hospital, pitocin, episiotomy.
dd in a birth center with a midwife in just under 2 hours-start to finish!
and dd2 OMG....a miserable experience! long labor, 16+ hours of pitocin (upped ever 20 minutes) I walked, bounced on the ball, showered until I was out of my mind in pain. totally efaced, dialated...nothing! long story short, the doctor was called, took all my jewelry off to do c-section. doctor has one last look and decides that membranes are bulging, lets just rupture them (I came to the hospital with ruptured water)????? the are getting gurney and paperwork and i say....she's coming out of me! I felt her "pop" down, he looks...we are having this baby now! (duh)
afterward i felt so shell shocked and disappointed! traumatized! angry! i had hoped to have the midwife in the office deliver her (she was the one on call when i got there) only to have her visit the next day to say hi blah blah....she says...yes, she saw the bulging membranes but the doctor on call was in surgery! i had been in excrutiating pain, mega pitocin all day because of a doctors schedule!
i have to say i had no idea what being in pain for an extended period of time does to your mind! if i was to have another baby i'd have the epidural! (and a new doctor)
i totally know how you could feel like that!
