Gabriel came into the world after an induction 12 days past my due date. Labor lasted 24hrs.25 min.
Brylee came into the world a week early after 8 hours of labor and 3 pushes!!
3 1/2 weeks before my due date 7/28 my baby was born on 7/3/13. I skipped my walk after work because I was having some lower back pain and though I should take it easy. I got home, threw a cake in the oven for my fathers birthday on the 4th and took a shower. After pulling the cake out of the oven. I sat on the couch to look up "mucus plug". I though maybe I had lost mine. I told my husband once the "plug" is gone, it could be hours, days or weeks. The info was not very helpful. As I was reading, I felt a tug on my belly and wetness. My water broke at 6:30pm. I started saying "oh oh no, oh no" and ran to the bathroom. I yelled to my husband "my water broke' he though I was joking. When he saw me he knew I wasn't joking. I called the doctor in a panic and they said to come right in. The hospital is about 25 minute from my house. I felt fine the whole car ride over and even walked to the maternity ward from the parking lot. Once we checked in at the hospital, we had to wait about 20 min for a room to be ready. While waiting I started to get contractions. They were painful, but not too bad. The minute we got into our room it was like the baby knew and she didn't want to wait any longer. I hadn't even laid down yet and the contractions were so strong I dropped to my knees. My husband got the doctor. He took one look at me and said "Well, I see a full head of hair. You are about 7 cm". I was in shock, not only because I couldn't believe how quickly things were going, but because I also knew it was too late for any pain meds. I knew I had no option but to be strong and fight through the pain. I closed my eyes, listened to the nurses and kept giving myself pep talks. It was a very busy night in the hospital so the Doctor was in and out of the room. He said "I'll be back in 10 min, you will probably still be pushing". In my head I though, "Heck no, this kid will be out by then". I did a big push and he ate his words. After holding the most painful push, the nurses told me to open my eyes. As I did I saw a tiny beautiful baby being pulled out and put on my chest. I was overcome with emotion that I was finally holding my baby girl. Hailey was born at 9:34pm, 4 min after the 4th of July fire works begain. We could hear from our room. I am so proud of myself for being strong and delivering a healthy beautiful baby girl without and medications.
I went in for a fetal non stress test on October 8, 2013 and my blood pressure was too high and I was showing signs of preeclampsia so they decided that I was going to get induced. After 72 hours of labor it was finally time to push, which then took 10 hours afterwards they did an ultrasound to find out he was sunnyside up and stuck. So then I had to have a C-section. My son Max was born at 6.24pm on 10/10/2013 he was 8lbs 11.3oz and 20in long. Even though it was a rough experience I wouldn't change it for anything in the world.
My bundle of joy was playing tricks on us at first. She was due January 20Th but after my last ultrasound I got called in and they said they have to do a c-section. I was scheduled to have a c-section on the 17th because the baby was breech and they though she might be in danger. I was confused and scared at the same time, because weeks earlier my doctor told me that my baby is fine because she turned head down and ready. Since its my first pregnancy i didn't even think that they could try to turn again or something? So I was in my hospital room ready to be cut open..but thankfully they did another ultrasound right before taking me in the surgery and guess what..she was head down again! So the surgery was cancelled. I was so happy because the though of being cut open really scared me I really preferred the though of giving birth vaginally. So..after that my due date came along but I did not feel a thing. I had another doctors appointment next day and they said if i don't go into labor before 41 weeks, they will have to induce me and we scheduled the inducing date Monday the 28th. That Monday came along and i still did not feel a thing.. I was not in pain at all i felt completely normal, well except for the exhaustion of being 41 weeks pregnant and still not in labor..I called the hospital at 7am asking if i can come in, ( i was told to call in 1h before my appointment to make sure they can take me in) and the answer was no...i kept calling basically after every few hours and finally i was admitted in hospital 6pm. I got induced and oh my gosh....i was like in the worst pain i have ever been almost right away, contractions were so often i couldn't even get a 5minute break. Finally after 6hours in massive pain i got my long waited epidural, after that i was all fine just had to wait to be 10cm... i know i should have been taking that time to rest but i somehow did not feel tired at all, which i found was a little bit weird. After 3 hours of pushing she was finally born 29th January 4.21am. It was not the best day in my life, but she is the best thing that has ever happened to me love her to death and beyond. <3
my story is way to long but the funiest part was when all the nurses kept saying one more push....the dr then said one more big push and you are done....my SO says i yelled the following, i think i simply said it "you have been saying that for almost and hour" the dr then told me calmly that no he didnt the nurses have been telling me. everyone laughed BUT ME!!! now i can laugh about it
Well I was due 12/5/12 but the Dr kept telling me that she'd be here before thanksgiving because i was 2cm and nice and thinned out well that came and past my due date past and the weekly check up I went in Dr said oh your still the same and I just it started crying so he scheduled me for induction the next morning of 12/12/12 so 6am he broke my water and put some jell in and I got a epidural at 12ish then at 315 I started pushing then a nurse came in at 345 and said stop pushing the Dr has tobdoba c-section on another lady but the Dr came in to just "check" me and said oh wow the babys coming now and 4 pushes later at 416pm she was born 8lbs 6oz 19in long
