I have to say that this birthing experience was not only the craziest but also the best!! The contractions never got regular but they did start hurting really bad so dh urged me to go in. Thank goodness for that because by the time we got to the hospital 15 minutes away, I was already dilated to a 9!
Honestly though it was for the best because I knew at that point that even though they were offering, it wouldn't work in time. So I ended up getting my all natural birth! No induction, no meds and no intervention.
I'm not going to lie though, the ring of fire is painful. I couldn't help but scream and groan but the euphoria I experienced when she came out was AMAZING! I wanted to cry and laugh and I couldn't stop smiling. They let me hold her right away and she latched on almost instantly. She was so alert. It's been a huge difference from the two drugged births I had previously. I feel so empowered and proud of myself. Even the nurses and my Dr were amazed at my composure and delivering without meds. Hubby gave me a great compliment as well. He said "Hunny you really were amazing" coming from him, that was huge!
I will post pics as soon as I can but I just want to say a big thank you to all of you ladies for.your help and support over the past few weeks!
