Oh my. I had A blood transfusion after DS, but that's no big deal. Sorry to hear what you both went through.

Quoting hippiemamax3:

Oh, I didnt say it was easy or safe or that he was healthy.
I did it, but he was too big.
We both suffered greatly.
He in the NICU and me getting multiple blood transfusions, stitches, etc. :-/


Quoting rjsmommy214:

Glad your body was able to do that! My DS was too big for my body. It took 2 hours of pushing and had to have an episiotomy and the suction thing to pull him out. I'm glad I didn't need a cesarean (I was on the verge) but it wasn't fun.

 nah, not that shocking,  I just think that a lot of people don't put enough confidence in their own bodies! I was told I could push a huge baby through my business! lol but both of mine have been tiny!
