I went into labor on my own at 37.5. I had contractions all day and my water broke at home.
When I got to the hospital I was a 5 but my water had Mec in it. I got my epi (no complications) and then I started having issues. My heart rate rose to 140 my daughters heart rate 180 no variables. My temp rose to 103.9 and I was throwing up. I also wasn't progressing anymore.
After an hour of them trying to lower my temp and heart rate my daughters heart rate jumped to 220 then came off the monitor. I was rushed back to the OR for an emergency c section.
My daughter and I both obtained nasty infections.
We're obviously okay but I had to stay in the hospital for 5 days for IV antibiotics.
I can't decide if I want to try to VBAC or elective c section next baby.
I work in Labor and Delivery and I'd say 80% of VBACs work... But the ones who don't are really bad. I've seen babies die before.
So who knows.
