I only posted here once or twice, but I loved reading all these natural birthing stories while I was pregnant, so I thought I'd post mine, too.
Just a little background, my son was born 8/10/07 via emergency c-section due to severe HELLP Syndrome (kind of like extremely bad pre-eclampsia) at 35 weeks. He had IUGR and only weighed 4lb11oz. They figured out during this pregnancy that it was due to two gene mutations I have that cause blood clots, so I gave myself anticoagulant shots twice a day and then three times a day at the end of my pregnancy. I also took extra folic and B vitamins since the disorders keep my body from utilizing those properly. My blood pressure got a little high at the end of this pregnancy, but all my hard work paid off and I got my natural birth!
