Hi everyone,
I gave birth to my son Logan naturally. I started contracting at about 11PM on 12/18/05, after about 6 hours of labor at home I was finally admitted to the hospital at 5am and was dialated to about 4 cm. When I was in labor my husband never left my side, he stayed with me holding my hand and using a cold wet cloth on my forehead to cool me down. My contractions were so close together, about 5 seconds apart, and the nurse kept telling me that she wanted to give me medication to "take the edge off". I refused all the meds they wanted to give me, about 2 hours before he was born, my contractions were so close together and my urge to push so strong, the doctor told me that I needed to stop pushing because the baby wasnt getting enough oxygen. I don't know if any of you ever had to stop pushing during labor but it was the hardest thing I ever had to do. When he was finally in the birth canal, the doctor said that he was not going to come out by himself (as my hips were always very small) so they called 3 more doctors into my room (at which time I was freaking out) and they used a vaccume to help me the rest of the way. My son was born at 12:43pm that afternoon weighing 8lbs 7oz. When they put him on my chest all the pain melted away and then I allowed the nurse to give me an IV to rehidrate me. Never before had we felt as truely blessed as we did that moment, and still do every moment since he was born.
Thanks for letting me share m story with you all
