i woke up at 4am to horrible back pain. i knew that i wasnt far along but i couldnt handle the pain( i had my other two drug free so imagine how painful that had to be) i get to the hospital at 630am and they tell me i have a high fever and both mine and babys heart rates are high so they're admitting me even though im only 1cm dilated.they think i have an infection somewhere. so they want to get my fever down and then induce because of an infection.(after doing blood tests they say its either in the uterus or really bad back labor) im not real sure on times but they started pitocin a few hours later. after 10 hours of not dilating i got stadol(iv drugs).i was out in seriously less then 2 minutes lol. i was in and out for 2 hours,hubby got a back massager and was massaging me the whole time. i was only a 4 and the pitocin was making babys heart rate drop so they said csection is highly likely. they stopped pitocin for awhile. started it again,got more stadol a couple hours later. i was out again.i woke up to the nurse giving hubby instructions about what would happen in the er. FINALLY the pain will be gone. i fall back asleep. i wake up to the dr checking me and my water breaking(i was at a 7) so he wants to continue to go natural because he didnt think it would be more then an hour. and he was right.at 10:44pm thursday,may 28th after 18 hours 44 minutes of back labor Malachi Ezekiel was born weighing 7lbs 12oz and 19 3/4 inches long. he was born on what would have been my uncles 50th birthday.he died in a house fire in 92 i believe. we wanted to use his name as malachis middle(vince) but my sister got mad because she wanted to use it i have a myspace and facebook for those who want to see pics.
Awwww! Poor thing... you sound like you were miserable!!!
Are your pictures on facebook/myspace private (i.e. you have to be signed up on facebook/myspace to see them)? I don't have a myspace or facebook acct but if they aren't private I would love to see them.
Glad you came through it without having a c-section! I've never had a c-section but I'm pretty sure I'd rather have an 18 hour bad labor than 6-8 weeks healing up for my tummy.
I had stadol with my DD, 2nd child. I firmly believe IV narcotics are one of God's greatest gifts to us.
Congrats, and cool names!
