14 years ago



14 years ago tonight i was in the hospital in a dead end labor. I went into the hospital at 11am. Walked the halls, walked the halls some more....nothing. No labor pains, no contractions no nothing! The doc came into break my water, i am in the hospital bed laying facing the door in all my glory. In walks my dad...nice...."what's going on"...he said....uh...the Dr is breaking my water....glad you could make it!! lol Anyway the doctor, being rude as can be tells me to "RELAX" while he is "manually" making me dilate....um....I am trying, but i would be more than willing to bet, since you are a male, that you don;t know how this feels....so "SHUT IT!" Anyway...long story short, I still didn't dilate, still didn't go into labor. So, it was time for the lovely "pit" drip....still no contractions other than Braxton hicks and a little bit of back labor, still only dilated 2. Doctor comes back in, "I'll be back in in the morning, we will probably have to do a C section if you don't progress anymore....ok, i have been here 12 hours...no nothing, do you really think I am going to progress? Whatever...you're the doc. So there i lay waiting.....the nurses kept asking if I wanted the epidural, i really hadn't felt any real labor pains yet, and if I was truly going to have a c section, would have liked to have experienced some sort of childbirth pain. At about 3am i finally gave in and let them give me the epidural so I could maybe sleep alittle bit. That was fun! I slept alittle bit and then 9am February 22 came.......more tomorrow!

Funny in my mind said...

Manual dilation?
I had the epidural drip started in my 6th month so I wouldn't have to go through natural childbirth the 2nd kid. haha

It's amazing the details of our children's birthdays that we remember. I had labor complications too that resulted in an emergency C-section with the first one. The second one was much easier, planned C-section.

What a fun way to break up the story. My sister went in 3 times to get induced with absolutely no results.........I know it was mentally and physically taxing for her........:)

Don't you just love those male doctors who say "it'll only be a little uncomfortable for a minute"...like, how would he know?? UGH!!

It amazes me still how I remember every single detail of my childrens' birth stories. It's like it was yesterday! Sounds like it's the same for you too!

Thanks for the warm welcome from SITS!
