It all started back at my 36 week appt when internal exams began. We found out then that she was breech(Frank breech at delivery). I proceeded to look into spinning babies and chiropractor care. None of it worked. I did find when chiropractor was working with me, my left side had the most issues.

I scheduled my section the 40th week and 3rd dayas no one delivers breech babies anymore.

7am on Tuesday morning we went in for for preop bloodwork(Monday eas a holiday) and ultrasound. A nurse asked me how I was and I burst into tears. I did my best to prepare for this day and come to terms that I wouldn't have a natural birth. The nurse was sympathetic and did her best to tell me it will all be worth it to hold my baby girl.

I was wheeled off to the waiting area and met with the anesthesiologist. I asked a few questions to make sure I knew what was to happen. I was scared when they opened the OR doors. I wanted my husband there to hold my hand. It didn't get any better when I had my spinal. This was the worst and I pray I forget about this part. I had horrible shooting pains down my left hip, tried again then in my left thigh, tried in another space with pain down my right thigh with a bursting sensation. I was balling and said a prayer to God to please let this work. I didn't want to be put under. I begged them not to and everyone said they know what to do and while uncommon, it would be okay. I need to follow up on this and want to know why all this happened.

Paul was waiting and worrying about what was happening. Soon enough he was there and I was feeling so drained. He asked when baby would be born and soon enough, they told him to look over the drape. I remember saying no, why are you looking over, you will pass out. I'll never forget he said it's okay she is so beautiful. I didn't hear well so i had no idea what they were doing. I asked when she was going to cry, nurses explained what they were doing. Then she cried, I started balling and calling out to her. She was bundled up and they showed her to me. She didn't stay long so i asked to please let me kiss her.

I was moved to recovery and got out in 45 minutes. The rest was a blur. I was so tired and nauseated.that I hardly remember getting to hold her the first time.

Recovery wasn't as awful. I had a jittery and sleep reaction to a drug given interveniously so when i got up out bed to sit in a chair, I was too exhausted to hold Juliet or try to breastfeed.

I am doing better a week later. Working through typical breast feeding issues, mobility and sleep deprivation. My DH will be home through the end of January and he has been the best husband in the world. I can already see how much this has made our marriage better.

I cried, and I don't really cry when I read birth stories.

I'm so glad she is here with you now!

That made me cry, too, and I'm at work, lol! It's nap time and the kids who are awake think I'm losing my mind. That's a beautiful story; I'm so glad your recovery is going well.

Awww Irene! What a hard birth story. I know a lot of people have had great success at working through their c-section trauma with ICAN, the c-section support group.

She is precious! Love those bright eyes!

While I am so happy she is here safe and sound, I am truly sad for what you experienced
