Did anyone else have an interesting pregnancy stories

Posted by   + Show Post

So with my first two it was just the normal c section type of thing, they where both breached and emergency because even now my kids just have to be difficult about things:) My last son i had a really bad stomach ache and found out that it was my contractions being a minute to two apart, really wasn't that bad just uncomfortable. But they gave me some medicine to help me rest and i went to the bathroom and ended up climbing onto my iv pole because it looked like the floor was moving, luckily the nurse came because i wasn't on my monitors. I was meant to call her but i like my children am stubborn and hate asking for help. Then when they did the c section to get him my epidural wore off to soon and I had to feel the rest of getting stitched up. OWIE! They tried to put stuff in my iv to knock me out but i just kept getting drowsy and then it hurt and i wake up again, three doses later and they couldn't give me anymore. Where all healthy and happy i was just curious if anybody else has had any interesting stories or anything

So far I've had to be induced with all three of my girls. I'm praying that this last one will come naturally of his own accord. With my first one and my third one I was induced a few days before my due date because I had too much amniotic fluid and they didn't want my water breaking on its own for fear the umbilical cord would be pushed out through my cervix and suffocate the baby. Wth my second I was 42 weeks and she just wasn't going to come out on her own. She's still my most stubborn child.

With my second and third deliveries the doctor was convinced I would need a c-section. Babies were head down, a bit on the big side, but still of a size that I could push them out. I don't know why they hought I would have to have c-sections, but they did. I told them both there was no way I'd be having a c-section unless it came down to life or death for my child or me. After my third was born my doctor congratulated me for being stubborn. She was all set to do an elective c-section.

My two most interesting pregnancy stories: When I was in labor with my first my doctor came in to break my water, we already knew there was a lot of amniotic fluid so the nurse built this little u-shaped dam out of rolled up towels around my lower half. The doctor sat on the bottom of the bed and did his thing and the water came ut so fast and hard it hit the towels and sprayed up all over his chest. I was mortified! The nurses took t calling me "The Great Flood of 2009" because it just kept coming, I had a small lake around my bed where it had poured off the sides.

With my second I was very apologetic throughout the whole labor. I'd getting grumpy and then immediately apologize. Well, when it came time to push I'd done two pushes and was on my third when my foot slipped off the stirrup and I kicked my doctor in the shoulder. I immediately stopped pushing and started apologizing and my doctor says "SHUT UP AND PUSH!!!!" So I did and out flew my daughter!

 I had a period for 4 months. Was sick the whole time. When I got to the hospital. I was given an epidural. Then my baby's heart went down. They had to stop the epidural so I could feel what I was doing and start pushing immediately. I did it. Here the cord was wrapped around my baby's neck and she wasn't getting much oxygen. It was a very scary experience!

My 1st came emergency c-section at 24 weeks. She was a footling breach. She was 1 pound 3 ounces. My 2nd I got only an epidural for the c-section so I felt a lot of it. Worst pain of my life and I screamed the whole time. My 3rd I went into labor at 19 weeks. With bed rest for months and meds he came into this world at 37 weeks. My 4th I had a placental abruption. I thought my water broke but I was hemmeraging badly. He was delivered immediately by c-section and made it fine. My 5th went fine except severe morning sickness that I was hospitalized 4 times in one month for. My 6th went smooth. So after 6 c-sections and all this I am finally DONE :)

My middle son had the cord wrapped twice around the neck by its not actually dangerous for the baby. They don't breathe out of their mouths in the womb donut doesn't cut off their oxygen.

With my first , it was a long , hard , extremely painful labor even with the epidural . I couldn't walk for a week, I had like 12 stitches. With my second I was induced, it went very fast, very painfree , I got the epidural once I was 5 cm dilated. I told the nurse I felt pressure, she checked me and I was ready to push. I have healed very quickly
