… and I thought everything will go smooth this time.
Even with our hospital being very liberal about “natural” birth giving after primary cesarean delivery, and being ask that question (“Which way you want to deliver?”) many times I know, I want c-section again. There is no way I will want to go through a half of what I went during my first labor.
The plan was simple. On given me day I show up at the hospital and they take my baby out. It couldn’t sound any better. It suppose to happen in 3 weeks.
On Monday my contractions started and they were very regular for 24 hours. Yesterday we decided to go in and have me checked. So we went and we spent 7 hours in Labor & Delivery. They hooked me up to the monitoring machine and after 2 hours of observation I was hooked to an I V . That didn’t help. So I lied there for next hour while the doctors deliberated what to do with me.
After that hour I was given a shot which stopped my contractions but I had to be under observation for almost 3 hours after that. I do not remember the name of it but it made my heart beat 3 times faster and my temperature jumped sky-high. I saw weird lights flying in front of me and I just wanted to go home, have something to drink and eat (since I got to the hospital they didn’t let me eat or drink at all), and when I was about to fall asleep they decided to let me go home.
So, we left the hospital with an advice to try to keep that baby inside me for at least one week.
I’m gonna try!
And here I am. No baby, yet. On bed rest with only one contraction today, so far. Today I got up with the hospital wristband and a bandage where my IV was. Last night I was too tired to take those off.
