So as you all know I was pregnant and due around August 17th or 18th. Well I had my little boy on August 17th and my fiance and I named him Jeffery Daniel he weighed 9 pounds and 1 ounce at 11:01 p.m. My water broke the morning of the 17th at 3:30 and oh man was I suprised I had no idea what I was suppose to feel when that had happened so here I was leaking fluids and telling my fiance we needed to go because after my water had broke I started to have contractions that were around 6 minutes apart. He thought I was dreaming and told me to go back to sleep and we would go to the hospital at 7 well what happened next was that I ended up calling my mom to bring me to the hospital because he wouldnt. So my mom and I got to the hospital and I was admitted right away they told me I could have the baby any time. What happens 20 hours pass and I am still in labor and doing it all natural so around 10:30 that night they checked me to see how far dialated I was and I was only 3 cm dialated and 100 % effaced. Omg talk about long time I felt like I was going to die. I had to make the choice that I didnt want to do and that was I needed to have a C-section so they took me in and out came Jeffery at 11:01 pm. everyone keeps asking me if I want to have another baby and I tell them with the trouble with the C-section I can wait three years before doing it again. but just letting everyone know i am back
Congratulations on your little boy! I'm sorry about the C-section but glad everything worked out OK in the end. That is my nightmare, to spend hours laboring and not progress, only to need a C-section in the end. I'm not planning on a natural birth though. I say bring on the drugs!
