Q:

What is your scariest pregnancy/labor story?

  • Nicole says:
    Just one? Probably this last labor...my BP dropping so low and my passing out. I had a serious reaction to the epidural that could have killed me and my baby if the nurses and doctors hadn't been so competent and quick to take action.

  • Francine says:
    The pain!!!

  • Amanda says:
    I had a natural birth lol so really the whole thing was scary

  • Rachel says:
    when i was pregnant with my twins and my cord prolapsed they rushed me into a c-section to get my girls out they were premie. my oldest died the same day and my youngest passed 1 1/2 mon later.

  • Amanda says:
    not really scary for me but when Emily was born she came so quickly that there were people running everywhere... my dad was trying to get out of the room, the midwife (at the hospital, not MY midwife) was trying to get someone else in to assist her and break down the bed (which did not happen, btw.) we caused quite a commotion!

  • Melissa says:
    I had a difficult pregnancy but by far the scariest part was when I was in labour and they lost Noah's (Baby B) heartbeat. They checked with the ultrasound and still couldn't find it. It was 7 weeks early so I was terrified we had lost him. We had an emergency c-section though and everything thankfully, turned out great!

  • patrice says:
    the scariest part was wondering when and where my water was going to break. My son was born in the winter and so, NOT knowing when he was coming, was scurry.

  • Nicole says:
    Being diagnois with Gestational Diabetes

  • shauna says:
    being in labor for 48 hours then having a c- section

  • Aimee says:
    When a doctor came in to "check" to see how dilated I was and lied...she tried to manually dilate me without my permission, and later found out it was against my doctor's permission! I could choke her!

  • Lisa says:
    Nothing really scary. Was in labor FOREVER with Jacob. The next day the doctor came in and rushed a c-section though.

  • Tarsha says:
    MY WATER BREAKING AT 6MTHS AND HAVING A 1 POUND BABYBOY

  • Angela says:
    During both labours had fetal distress, with the first, his head was getting stuck and compressed which caused his heart rate to drop really low. Ans with number two, I caused her to be distressed, I panicked about an a drip I had to have and nearly fainted, then she went into distress too, purely maternal stress. Was quite scary, I got thrown down on the bed, an oxygen mask went on and alarms were going off everywhere. The midwife was shouting for help, and the looks on their faces said it all!

  • Jessica says:
    Ive heard alot....i dont think mine was too scary... apart from when her heartbeat dropped to 75bpm she was pushed out right away i didnt want a c-section!

  • Victoria says:
    actual labor, the pain, pushing the baby out!

  • Lory says:
    Having my daughter 3 weeks later than anticipated; then she was almost 10 pounds at birth. OUCH!

  • Amanda says:
    When the Doc told me there was something wrong with his heart

  • Micaela says:
    SHIT I DONT HAVE ANY WEN THERE NOT BREATHING WEN THEY COME OUT

  • Trisha says:
    Lets not go there with my labor story... To long

  • Jenae says:
    He was a month early so I had to take an ambulance to Duluth just in case. (but everything was fine)

  • Laura says:
    While pushing the cord was around her neck and they had to extract her... other than that it was easy squeezy.

  • Jean says:
    Went into labor the day before I was scheduled for a C-section.

  • Kate says:
    With the first the doctor had to break scaring that was on my cervix that was acting as a rubber band, and yes it did hurt alot. With the second after he was born, while trying to deliver the placenta I bleed around 2 litres and had to be rushed off to theatre. I remember going into shock and from reports later if I hadn't been in hospital I probably wouldn't be here now telling this story.

  • Melissah says:
    Prob having Codi at 36 weeks

  • Jamie says:
    Antiphospholipid Antibody Syndrome. Google it. Nuff said.

  • Melissa says:
    When i was preggers with Abby, my 6 year old, I told everyone that I didnt care weather she was a boy or girl, as long as she came out breathing and crying. I was terrified when she was born blue and I didnt get to hear her cry. I was yelling for someone to tell me that she was ok, but everyone just looked at eachother. Thank god She turned out to be just fine!

  • Leah says:
    Oh my gosh, she had the ambilical cord wrapped around her 3 times, everytime I pushed her heartbeat would go down, scary for me

  • Amy says:
    well mine went well so i dont have one YET!

  • Jacqui says:
    I was sick in the beginning they gave me the choice of terminating the pregnancy in my 13th week ... she was a handful right off lol

  • Pamela says:
    I was in premature labour with Amy. Finding out how litlle she was 2 lbs or less. I was dilated to 4cm and 100% effaced with 3months to go. With God's help,with medication and long bedrest. She was born health and doing well.

  • Hilda says:
    scared of giving birth

  • Melissa says:
    My pregnancies were all pretty uneventful. After I had Kyle, My placenta was stuck and they had to get specialists to come and get it out. I could have bled to death. But I didn't know that at the time.

  • Anonymous says:
    All 3 were scary pregnacy but yet when I actually think about the worst was when My appenddicts burst and I was 4 1/2 motnhs pregnant with Christopher and they didn't know if either one us would survive and here we both are!

  • Sarah says:
    C section with Josiah they found a vericalis vein on my incision and didnt know what to do . then after they delivered him I wouldnt quite bleeding almost had to have a hysterectomy then ..

  • Deb says:
    The only thing I have to mention was that one of my kids had their umbilical cord wrapped like a pretzel and praise God for bringing her/him into the world!

  • Desiree says:
    It took forever! bleeding out after #2 was pretty scary.

  • Carly says:
    well i only have one. erm basically i started leaking my waters at 36 weeks so went to hospital to have it checked out. they refused to let me go home as i could get an infection and they wanted to keep an eye on me. i asked to be induced the next day as waiting the 3-4 days knowing i could get an infection worried me. but i didnt even need to. an hour after i was checked over i went into labour. i think having a internal actually broke my waters and sent me into labour. i was in labour for 3hrs 14mins in all and enjoyed every second. the scary bit though was when they couldnt stop the bleeding after and eva being rushed away from me at birth.

  • Lisa says:
    None.

  • Sarah says:
    My son was born with his cord wrapped around his neck and was born blue and nearly didn't make it

  • Natasha says:
    ummm. IDK. Well, Jaiden's heartrate kept dropping during my contractions, which made my heartrate drop.

  • Diana says:
    well I only have one child and the other is on the way but my first delievery was scary for me because they lost his heartbeat so they ran me in for an emergancy c-section. With this pregnancy I just get a c-section so hopefully everything will go smooth.

  • Dominique says:
    I got severe SPD with my first pregnacy and spent the last 6 weeks in a wheelchair unable to walk. I was finally induced at 37 weeks and spent the whole labour with my legs tied together with bandages as my legs couldn't be seperated. You're proberly wondering how you give birth naturally with your legs tied together and the answer would be with great difficulty!!! But i did it and was eventually fine.

  • Mary says:
    I was 28 weeks pregnant and i was asleep aND STARTED BLEEDING UNCONTROLLABLY. i HAD TO GET CARRIED FROM MY BED DOWN THREE FLIGHTS OF STAIRS AND THE NEXT THING I KNEW i WAS BEING GIVEN ALL SORTS OF MEDICINE, TRYING TO PUSH A BABY OUT, AND THEN WHEN i CAME TO, i SAW MY LITTLE BOY AS SMALL AS A BABY DOLL. hE WAS APREEMIE.

  • melissa says:
    When I was pregnant with my 1st I went in to premature labor 2xs. With my 3rd I was getting out of the car and had my middle son in my arms and fell down the hill. I was about 6 months pregnant and my son that I was holding was asleep and it didn't wake him up but it scared the crap out of me.

  • Ashley says:
    not guna get into details--i was bleeding when i shouldnt have been but everything turned out okay :D

  • Angie says:
    I was in labor with my son for 22 1/2 hrs. Right before it was time to start pushing I overheard the doctor tell the nurse that they could no longer find my son's heartbeat. That is NOT something you want to hear when you are in labor! Especially during the pushing part.

  • Paula says:
    i had a really easy pregnancy, and a really quick labour, but i tore really badly and ended up in surgery after he was born

  • Sarah says:
    after i had my last child i was bleeding internally and the nurses didnt believe me until i passes a blood clot the size of a newborn baby. then i got really sick

  • Claire says:
    it was awful, 16 hours, forceps delivery, with a tear on top of being cut, to then be sick and pass out and miss the first few hours of my baby's life :(

  • lindsey says:
    with my second it was too quick went from 5cm to pushing in like 15 minutes doctor wasnt there, they were telling me not to push but my body was making me(im sure you all know the feeling) the head came out and they didnt let me rest at all they were all saying push push thenher shoulders got stuck and they were yanking on her...but everything was ok...

  • Bonita says:
    After I had been admitted, the nurse was trying to find a vein to give me an IV. I was already 5cm and the contractions were coming every 5 min and very strong. They stuck me three times in my hand before finally putting the IV in the middle of my arm(elbow). I had a bruise for a month from the IV. I asked for the epidural when they admitted and was told they had to wait for the blood work. My doctor was not there yet. Three hours later, the anestegiologist finally arrives asks how far along I was, no one had checked, I was now fully dialated and told it was too late!!

  • Ewa says:
    when bub was born, wasnt breathing

  • Tanya says:
    I hit a 18lb moose on the highway within my eight month of pregnancy. My vehicle was a complete write off and I was rushed to the hospital. I had glass and moose fur/blood everywhere. The hardest decision was to have an Xray to see if I had internal bleeding. I was admitted and spent nearly a week in the hospital. The reality of the situation didn't hit me until I returned home and saw the pictures of the vehicle. I shouldn't of survived the accident but the "Universe" or "God" had other plans. I am grateful for my second chance in life.

  • Emma says:
    I had some bleeding when I was only about 8 weeks pregnant which terrified me, then when I was around 7 months I had to go to the hospital with really bad stomach pains.

  • Kat says:
    When my son's heartbeat stopped and when my daughter stopped breathing when she was born. The scariest one for me, is not an appropriate story to tell, my son Colin will always be in my heart.

  • Amanda says:
    when i was pregnant with hanna rick got in a bad accident and broke his neck. i was about 4 months along and i think it was the stress but i started bleeding severely. i went to the e.r. and they told me that hanna was aborting. they didnt do any tests at all just told me that i was gonna lose the baby that i should go home and take it easy. they put me on complete bed rest. i was devastated. i quit bleeding the next day and made a doc appointment to be checked out and little hanna was fine. still dont know what actually caused it i just blame it on the stress of the car accident and everything that happend along with it.

  • Mel says:
    i went into labour at 6 months and i was in and out of hospital from then on he was only 8 days early in the end!

  • Alice says:
    Having a baby who was determined to sit up right for birth. He would not turn "head down" on his own and a team of doctors turned him manually in the womb.

  • Kaylia says:
    When my baby got stuck! Her face turned blue, and one nurse had to jump on the bed with me and start pushing down on my belly. I didn't know what was going on because they were speaking french. My grandmother is fluent in french and just seeing her face made me panick more.

  • Michelle says:
    Hard to say. I guess the scariest time for me was when my middle daughter was born suddenly, at home, footling breech with the cord around her neck, and got stuck in the birth canal. She was halfway born with her legs already out and my contractions just stopped -- the paramedics had to literally reach in and pull her out. I was absolutely terrified that she was going to die! But at the same time it seemed like everything about that day conspired to make sure that if she had to be in that situation, it was going to turn out ok. By the end of the day I felt like it was obvious that God's hand had been over us, and if I had to go back I wouldn't do a thing differently.

  • Patricia says:
    Really don't have one

  • Emma says:
    Have a baby in the US as a teenager and you will know what it is

  • Carie says:

  • Marie says:
    with my daughter i lost my waters at 29weeks and had to stay in hospital for 4weeks and then had a dry birth which was more painful. with my second son my cervix got caught during birth so i had to be hooked, i know lovely isn´t it and i´m goin to do it yet again!!!

  • Lisa says:
    When the Dr.'s told me(the day b4 scheduling a C-section) that my son, Tristan, would "prob'ly be dead".

  • julie says:
    My daughter was just a few days late, so my Dr. told me to drink a glass of wine and go for walks. Well, I am out walking and I tripped and ROLLED down a hill. I just knew I had killed my child! Luckily she was born healthy just a few days after the fall.

  • Victoria says:
    complications with my son in which I was put on bed rest the last two months of pregnacy,he still came a month early

  • Kisha says:
    The cord being wrapped around Dayson's feet

  • LaKisha says:
    Josiah hands down... I wasnt due till March 12 but I was stressed about having him on Chaute's birthday, the baby daddy had me stressed that I went into labor in Jan they had to take me off till March I finally went into labor March 8 @7:45 am started pushing @1145 he was out @ 12:20pm

  • Rebecca says:
    Labor with Mariana was the scariest thing that has ever happened to me - 31 hours of labor, preclampsia, emergency C-section, need I say more?

  • Tina says:
    when my girls heartbeats where really low

  • shanna says:
    i had no pain medication i had to do it natural and that hurts and going into labor early.

  • Kelly says:
    when the dam nurses said, "Uh-oh, we gotta move you quick, baby's not doing good............heart rate dropped...."

  • Amelia says:
    When Josh was born he did not cry right away it seemed like a life time. When Jake was born durning my c-section I lost all feeling in my body even my head went numb and I could not even swallow. That was awful.

  • Lisa says:
    Having to take shots for gestational diabetes when I was pregnant with Nathan

  • Wyona says:
    afraid of the doctor having to break my water, prayed and God broke it so the doctor didn't have to try to do it for me, such a relief to me...

  • Michelle says:
    When they lost Kelsey's heartbeat----and when they couldn't find Kenda's!

  • Just says:
    When Christa was born the nurse broke my water with her fingernail. Yes, she had gloves on. But it hurt like hell.

  • Jennifer says:
    I didn't have any, thank God!! Everything was great!

  • crystal says:
    That would have to be devon, he was my hardest and my biggest., I didnt think i was ever going to make it thru having him.

  • Cassie says:
    I had toxemia with Blaine and Bryar topped the cake with being born with heart defects. Not knowing if she would make it was the scariest thing I've ever had to face!

  • Amber says:
    The whole thing! Placenta previa and bedrest at 6 months. I also had trouble having her and healing. Afterwards I got a bad infection with a fever of 104.

  • Kristen says:
    Having twins and being on bedrest for 12 weeks is bad enough and I don't like to ruin other pregnant womens ideas of what their labor will be like by scarring anyone

  • Charlie says:
    having to have a c-secion when i didn't want one and being told by my doctor that i will never be able to have a natural birth. (we'll see!!!!)

  • Tonya says:
    i had a pretty scary labor, started off ok... they decided to induce because my blood pressure was high and they were worried about pre-e or something scary. Started pitocin on Thursday evening, by later that night I had nurses coming in to put oxygen on me and making me turn on my sides to get Rylie's heartrate back up. They even turned off the pit to let her recover a couple times - I was freaking out! By Friday, they basically told me that she wasn't handling labor well and i had to get an emergency c-section (the number one thing i DID NOT want!!) But for my baby, i had no choice. Turns out, her cord was so long and was sitting right by her head the whole time I was contracting, so it was putting pressure on her cord. Probably would have had to get a section anyways. Sorry that was so long!!

  • PAULA says:
    HAVING EPILEPTIC FITS WHILE PUSHING MY DAUGHTER IN2 THE WORLD, AND MY SON GETTING STUCK AND ME HAVING TO HAVE A EMERGENCY C-SECTION.

  • Ester says:
    I had a really healthy pregnancy.... Just on labor day, I kinda didn't know I was well into labor.... thank God I went to the hospital!

  • Sandi says:
    I almost had Hailey in our van on the way to the hospital but I held out and kept her in, she was born within 5-10 minutes of getting inside the hospital. With Marissa, I had preaclampsia and her heart beat was slowing down, but after she was born, everything was fine.

  • Nadine says:
    Nothing scary about it

  • Kirsten says:
    The fact that I would have to GIVE BIRTH was enough the first time and that ended with a c-section. The second time I opted for the c-section and then layed on the operating table and was astounded that I was going through surgery again! ;)

  • Elizabeth says:
    Perfect pregnancy, but needed an emergency c-section. Being told your child could die is friggin scary

  • Savannah says:

  • Anna says:
    my labours were both quick which was scary and i had no time for pain relief and i also did it all on my own cos they came so quick my partner didnt make it

  • stephanie says:

  • Judy says:
    my water breaking with Sam

  • Carina says:
    The laboring for 24 hours with contractions every 10 mins at home was the worst, everything at the hospital was a breeze.

  • Carrie says:
    Being in labor with my daughter for 36 hours with no pain medications and most of that by myself

  • Nicole says:
    I went into labor at 26 weeks with my son, I was rushed from one hospital to another in a bigger town, given a lot of medication and steroids for him. Luckily they stopped my labor, but I remained on bed rest for 10 weeks, he was still born 4 weeks early and spent 13 days in the NICU

  • Cyndi says:
    After suffering miscarriage before, I was pretty scared in the first trimester that it would happen again. When I got used to the fact that I was staying pregnant this time, my fear was of whether or not the baby would have OI (osteogenesis imperfecta) and how that would affect the rest of the pregnancy and his/her birth. THEN, at 33 weeks I went into pre-term labor and my amniotic fluid dropped drastically. We were able to slow the labor down and I had contractions for the next 6 weeks, but he held out until our c-section date.

  • Leslie says:
    Almost Aborting Chandra.

  • Gail says:
    See my Notes section on TTTS.

  • Kym says:
    36 Hour Labor

  • Danielle says:
    dnt hav 1

  • Karen says:
    thank god I don't have one

  • Jessica says:
    I passed out at my job when I was pregnant with my first (Jaydon) and I was very stressed out. I also had to deal with a lot of stress when I was pregnant with my second (Sariah) and I almost had gestational diabetes but it was borderline.

  • Jodie says:
    i don't have one...it was pretty easy for me

  • Amanda says:
    don't have one, they went on fine.

  • Marie says:
    Sara puked blood the day after she was born. Danielle was born with the cord around her neck.

  • Jessica says:
    when he got stuck and went into destress and my oxygen started droping and they had me so drugged up i could stay awake not a good moment

  • Katie says:
    During my labour, Jayin kept grabbing his umbilical cord and his heart rate would drop. It was pretty scary, so everytime he did it I would have to reposition myself so that he would let go.

  • Jamie says:
    Well with Bryelle I was in labor for 2 days and I got to the hospital when I was 8 centimeter and they almost could'nt give me any pain meds....I had her 2 hrs after I got to the hospital.

  • Tiffany says:
    There were alot of scary points with my first pregnancy. In the beginning my morning sickness was so bad I was hospitalized for dehydration. I couldn't even keep water down. Not even a g profile. When I was 5 months pregnant I was in a car accident because apparently no had explained red lights to the other driver yet. Then I moved suddenly and hadn't found a new doctor yet when I went into labor, and the on call doctor let me sit there in labor, feeling like I was literally dieing for 11.5 hours before she decided to do an ultrasound to check the position of the baby (she was breach). My husband got kicked out of the hospital twice by security for threatening to do her bodily harm if she didn't do something to help me. All around, not the best experience. I am glad she's here now though.

  • tamara says:
    29 hours of labour then a scary c-section lol

  • Kristen says:
    Case had a bowel movement while still in the womb....As soon as he was born they rushed him away to clear his lungs and get everything out. I swear it felt like minutes went by before I heard him cry...I couldn't see him because he was in another room and I was being stitched up so that made it even worse. I just remember asking my husband over and over again if he was ok. He ended up having to stay in the NICU for 7 days on antibiotics to make sure there was no infection...it was scary.

  • Adana says:
    I had an epidural with both Renee and Devyn, but with Milah, I had an allergic reaction to it. So for the last three hours and during pushing, it was ol natural.

  • carla says:
    when i was pregnant with stephen and was put in the hospital because i was so sick

  • Johanna says:
    Chase wasn't breathing well when he was born so he was rushed to the NICU. I never got to hold him until later the next day. He had a what's called a pneumothorax. It was pretty much a big air bubble compressing his lung. He never cried either which was horrible.

  • Shanna says:
    When they told me that I would have to have an emergency c-section just like my mother. I was scared to death!

  • Adriana says:
    I had a perfect C Section. Everything went 100% perfect until I got home, I felt so good I started doing everything around the house, then in the middle of the night 2 days after I got home, while feeding my son my incision opened up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!! Talk about the scariest thing ever! And the week after would be even worse when they kept it open and packed it with gauze 2 times a day. That is the worse pain I have ever felt in my life, Then they stapled me back shut after a week of torture, while being awake! =) If I can endure that I can do anything!!!!! =)

  • Jaimie says:
    The damn nurse at the hospital couldn't get the IV in my hand so she kept poking me and I was bleeding all over the place, one more time and she would have gotten punched!

  • Kelly says:
    Retained placenta. Almost needed a blood transfusion. Scared the crap out of my entire family. Happened with both....Not fun!

  • Amie says:
    I had to have an emergency c-section, my contractions started Makenna stopped moving my blood pressure went through the roof. Then they thought she might have an affection so she spent 3 days in NICU. She wouldn't take a bottle for a while so they had to use a feeding tube. She's made up for it now

  • Cammy says:
    i have a few......my daughter not breathing when she was born, my son being breech so having to have a csection when ive never had any kind of surgery before

  • Heather says:
    Being 19 and having placenta privia. Or being 19 and really wanting my mom to be in the room with me but she wouldn't. She told me...I was not there when you got pregnant, I will not be there when you get un pregnant.!! But she was in the waiting room!

  • Stephanie says:
    Mia - that should explain it .

  • Brandy says:
    his heart rate dropping quickly because my birth canal was not big enough for him so I had to go in for an emergency c-section.

  • Erin says:
    i was in labor for 24 hours thats about it god blessed me with easy childbirth

  • Anonymous says:
    When I was in labor and my progression stalled, Danielle's heartbeat plummeted from 140 bpm to 80 and was falling fast. It almost ended up being an emergency c-section. Another thing that was scary was when she was pulled out from my womb and wasn't breathing. Her Apgar Score was 4, and they had to administer oxygen, but she was fine and five mins later her apgar went up to a 7.

  • Blayr says:
    when i was pushin my son out his head got stuck and i had to have oxygen cause he was loosing oxygen fast i had 10 mins to get him out or they were gonna do a emerg c section i thankfully got him out

  • Anastacia says:
    don't have one

  • audrey says:
    whn my baby wasn't breathing

  • Kristy says:
    with rhys i had to push him when i wasnt having contractions because he had a knot in his cord and they lost his heart beat

  • Nikki says:
    Nothing was scary about it for me I don't think, we got a bit anxious when he flipped around the wrong way and starting stressing during labour, but that was thankfully short lived.

  • Samantha says:
    none.... it all went very textbook..... no story here sorry

  • Anamaria says:
    actually giving birth.

  • Lucie says:
    Losing a baby in a foreign country

  • Sam says:
    dont have any they were good labours

  • Jessie says:
    Braelyn - when they found a light spot on her heart during an ultrasound. We were lucky and it turned out to be just a calcium deposit - no harm. Giana - the contractions.......they were NOT what I was expecting, and they came on strong and immediately....I didn't think we were going to make it to the hospital!

  • Charlene says:
    I don't find labour scary just painful and normal

  • Jodie says:
    none

  • Lauren says:
    I got pre-ecplamsia when I was roughly 35 weeks and then was induced at 37 weeks...I thought the labor went well (3 hours from start to finish, i couldn't really complain) but we first realised he was sick about 20minutes after he was born.

  • Jennifer says:
    Being in labour for over 24hrs and not even give birth naturally.

  • Jessica says:
    I got up to pee one night at 34+5 weeks and my water broke on the toilet. I packed a bag and we headed for the hospital 45 minutes away. When the nurses FINALLY checked me, I was fully dilated, fully efaced, and at a +3 station. The doctor wasn't there and I was almost delivered by a resident. They didn't let me push until the doctor arrived. He gave me a shot of a local anesthetic, as that was all we had time for. The doc delivered his head, unwrapped the cord, and suctioned his nose and mouth. Then he delivered the shoulders and turned to get something. The nurse pulled me up to see the baby coming out and he shot out! The doctor barely caught him. All in all, my labor was 2 hours and Justus was out in 4 contractions.

  • Angela says:
    With Jude...the whole pregnancy...It was my first and I had an infection the whole time. I basically lived in the hospital. With Jace... the very end...when my water broke at the hospital while I was trying to pee in the cup in triage. I went from a 3cm to 9 cm within secs.

  • Tiffany says:
    I dont have one - my labor was wonderful - i had the epidural and didnt feel a thing - and then i only had to push 4 times and he was completly out....the only thing that was scary for me was going 2 weeks over my due date..not fun!

I got to hold my baby for 5 minutes before he was air lifted to St. Mary's NICU in Duluth.. he was there for a full week... he regained the use of his left arm in around 3 weeks and is mostly left handed now.

  • Sharon says:

  • Becky says:
    I got sent down to Pittsburgh around 30weeks becuase they thought that the baby had some kidney or swallowing problems. I also tested postive for the CF gene, although Scott didnt so the chances were just like anyone elses.

  • Pamela says:
    i tried naturally 2 have kaylee, but she got stuck so the doctor tried suction cap twice but her heart beat went down was 2 low so then they had 2 call in the doctors & nurses so that i could have a c-section, once that was ova i couldnt c her for 4 hrs

  • Angela says:
    Due to a previous miscarriage, I was terrified during my whole pregnancy because I bled through most of it.

  • Cindy says:
    9lbs3ozs...not coming out of little body so easily...61/2cms dilated....almost too late for epidural...doctor was allready home...was cranky she had to come back...wanted me to sit perfectly still while she inserted the needle.....yeah...WHATEVER!!!! stood on top of bed...cried...and then finally she compromised with me....thank god......and then....out popped beautiful baby boy... :D

  • Caroline says:
    My firstborn... Kayli, had her a month early, water broke, had placenta previa wasnt supposed 2 have her vaginally and she was an inch and half away from the placenta and couldve suffocated to death and I was only freaking 17 years old!!

  • Becky says:
    I had a home birth, right after my baby girl was born I felt liquid draining from me and I said to my midwife, "Beth I'm leaking something." She looked down and said "yes you're bleeding" While delivering my baby she tore the placenta off of the uterus wall and caused the hemoraging to start. We lucked out that Beth knew what to do and was able to stop the bleeding even before the first responders showed up at our house (35 miles from the hospital).

  • Ashley says:
    Non, I had easy labors and deliveries

  • Brittany says:
    Don't have one yet! With Adyson I had the easiest pregnancy and delivery!

  • Jennifer says:
    Hearing the doctor say Jesse's in distress and they had to do a c-section. Being strapped down to table during c-section but still have epidural shakes. Oh, and then my room burst into flames about 24 hours after I had Jesse.

    Going into labor 22 days early. While Sam apparently was never at risk, I feared the worse.

  • donna says:
    GOSH, HAVE YOU REALLY GOT TIME??? DONT THINK SO...

  • Alicia says:
    hmmm nothing really all went normal but i did want to have him on the toilet lol

  • Jonine says:
    Elias weighed 9 pounds and an ounce and born out home without pain meds. My cervix swelled and I was in transition for about four hours. In a state of exhaustion I was bordering on passing out. There are parts of the labor during that time that I don't even remember apparently. He was finally born and was healthy and HEAVY! And I began to think to myself...why am I doing this without pain meds?????

  • Cecilia says:
    Getting an unplanned emergency C section was pretty bad.

  • Cassandra says:
    i thought i was going to lose my 2nd baby when i was in my early stages of pregnancy with the amount of blood i lost but nope my little boy was growing nicely

  • Lisa says:
    I had easy, short labors...yes God blessed me...but both my boys were 9lbs. 12 ozs. so that in its self is incredible..esp. since I delivered naturally. Oh and with my oldest..I had no EPIDURAL..I wouldn't really do that if I were you.

  • Kimberly says:
    I went into labor on campus leaving class!

  • Heather says:
    The labor part went pretty quick for me when I was having my son, (so quick that the meds they gave me had no effect bc almost as soon as they gave them to me I was ordered to push), except for that last part when I started to get tired & it was hard to push. Then all of a sudden they start screaming, "Push!! Damn it push!! The cord is wrapped around his neck!!!" And I remember my mom looking nervous and i can't remember if she was crying but I was like, "Oh shit!" and gave a final push and finally he was delivered. I didn't hear him cry & at first I thought something was wrong---my heart started squeezing tightly--- until he gave a squall.

  • Ashley says:
    When my daughter was born, the cord got pinched in the birth canal, and she wasn't breathing at first. They had to administer oxygen, but she started crying after a couple of minutes. They were the longest minutes of my life, though.

  • Rhiannon says:
    ummm...I was almost dead after ausin's delivery

  • Morgan says:
    With Ashley I stayed at 3 cm all day, she had turned and was hitting my pelvic bone, so we had a c-section..I was terrified, I'd never had so much as a stitch! With Amber, hearing that there was a knot in her umbilical cord as I lay on the table during my c-section!

  • April says:
    During my pregnancy the ultrasounds should problems with Daytons heart and we were told she would need open heart sugury at 10lbs.

  • Melissa says:
    N/A

  • Erica says:
    hmm, i was in labor for a day, i pushed for 3 long hours, they tried to suck her out, then i had a c section and i felt it, and it hurt. the meds wore off.

  • Marcia says:
    Going into labour with my 5yr old 9wks early

  • Samantha says:
    After 23 hours my labour stopped my body shut down, and he had turned his head in the birth canal, so I was rushed to OR for emergency vaccuum if that didnt work it would have been c-section.

  • Stephanie says:
    in jan. of '95 when i went into the hospital at the time I was pregnant with my youngest Tyre and lying in that hospital bed the doctors were standing around me saying that they couldnt find a pulse on me that my body temp was so low that I was near death that in order to save me and the baby was for me to undergo a blood transfusion..I had to have 2 to 3 pints of blood..I thank GOD everyday for keepin me safe & putting his arms of protection around me as he does everyday of my LIFE!!!

  • Selina says:
    Having a manual removal of the placenta

  • Tina says:
    It was when I was in labor with my daughter Aubrey. I had problems during my pregnancy and had to have many ultra sounds and an amnio, I was induced at 5:15 AM, and they broke my water around 11:00 AM, and as soon as they broke my water, I knew something was wrong, I was told Neo Natal needs to be called and I was told I could not push until they got there, well for 45 minutes I was told not to push, and as you all know, that is easier said than done, while they finally got there and I pushed 2 times and Aubrey was born, but she did not cry right away, a few minutes later she began to cry, but I was not allowed to hold her. She had what is called : Meconium. I was so scared because while I was in labor, they kept losing her heartbeat, and I almost had to have a C-Section

  • Carla says:
    Pregnancy---Shawn-- my first Dr. treated me horribly after I declined an amnio due to the risks, and I ended up diabetic and on 10 shots a day. I had to be watched carefully and had many dr appts, stress tests, and sonograms. Delivery-- there really isn't one to tell. They pretty much went like clockwork.(not that they were fun)

  • Chezronda says:
    well having to have an emergency C-section is pretty scary.

  • Mariel says:
    i think both pregnancies were hard, but the last one was the scariest for me and John, because i went to a regular check up and i ended up in the hospital. Then they tell me i was having a c-section because she was breach! As i prepared myself for that the high risk doctor comes in and truns her around into the proper position! and..... 16 hrs later she was here!!!

    My pregnancy went very well, the scariest part was the doctor induced me before I should have been induced and only gave me three pushes before she would do a c-section

  • Whitney says:
    With my son, going into labor almost 2 months early. THAT was scary, I was afraid for him, but my husband kept telling me God would not give us such a gift if he didn't want us to have it.

    When I got a call saying that the last ultrasound that I got was abnormal. They wouldn't tell me on the phone what they thought was wrong. Instead, they scheduled a 3D ultrasound for 2 weeks later and I had to sit and wonder what was wrong with my child. When I got the ultrasound done, everything was fine. I was very mad when I found out that they thought there may have been something wrong with her brain. Why the hell wouldn't you tell the mother something that serious instead of making her wait 2 weeks?!

    Nothing really... the scariest thing was when I started going into labor preterm when I was working at Walmart. Which is why I quit the job. After that, everything was peachy

  • Kristi says:
    when he got stuck and they thought they would have to do a c-section.

  • Kim says:

    i guess after they gave me the epidural with vicki i jumped from 3cm to 5cm and with in minutes i was at 9cm and my water broke and vicki rushed down and i guess they were calling code red and code blue it was all fuzzy for me once they put the oxygen mask on and then i had her.... it scared my dad to the point he left the room

    With Colin I went into labor 6 weeks early. It was a very scary situation because I really wasn't sure what was going to happen to him. They gave me pitocin and after I hit 4 cm., I couldn't progress any further and I was losing amniotic fluid. I ended up having placenta abruption and had to have an emergency c-section. It was definitely one of the scariest things I have ever gone through. Thank God everything turned out OK. He was a big baby for his age, and only had to spend 10 days in NICU.

  • Shannon says:
    I don't have anything horrible. I suppose it would have to be being induced opposed to letting things happen naturally. I was hoping for a med free birth, but I had an extremely rare reaction to the pit which caused me to endure one long extremely intense unending contraction during labor. (My "breaks" were the strength of regular contractions, and the peaks were 3-4 times stronger.) As a result, I ended up with an epi...it was either that, or end up with a c-section for failure to progress due to the stress/tense/exhaustion of the pit reaction.

  • Becky says:
    1st pregnancy -- I started going into labor at 29 weeks. they stopped it with a shot. I had my son 10 weeks later. I was scared during the labor because I had pushed for over and hour and he still wasn't out yet and I was soo exhausted. I was worried they would have to do an emergency c-section, but luckily 30 mins later he was born. 2nd pregnancy -- miscarriage 3rd pregnancy -- I had a bad experience with my epidural, it worked, but getting it was bad. They missed the first time trying and hit a nerve and blood vessel, I was in so much pain from that. It has turned me away from getting one ever again. But the scariest part was after my son was born. They were cleaning my son off while I was passing the afterbirth, but it didn't want to come out.. when it finally did , I started bleeding out. They were worried that it wasn't going to stop. Luckily the Dr got the bleeding to stop after awhile. That was scary.

  • Karyn says:
    dont have one..

  • Jennifer says:
    Pregnancy story would have to be a toss up between my miscarriage and when they told me Tony would be born with Downs Syndrome. Labor: When a scary african man came in and jumped on my bed and began to push on my stomach while the doctor tried to suck off vanessa's head and I pushed. That guy came out of nowhere, running and hopped up on the bed onto his knees, and started pushing on me. weird.

  • Erin says:
    ugh..the worst part was I was relying on the epidural to get me through it but that didn't work out.. then the stitches..losing a piece of gauze.. not fun.

  • Rachael says:
    well i had to get cut to fit the vacuum in to suck Tyler out and then as i was being stitched up the local had worn off so i felt him stitching me up, but because i told him i could feel it he hurried and cut the knot off at the end by mistake but he never noticed till it got in infected a week later and it still hasn't healed...

  • stacey says:
    hmmm, knowing i was going to be induced with my first for a while i heard all these horrible stories about being in labour for days with an induction (my first labour was an hour)

  • Erin says:

  • Jean says:
    With Nat and Carter I pretermed at 28 weeks and delivered at 35. That was scary. With Ry, I bled at 12 weeks (the placenta had torn a little bit away from my uterus) and was told I would have a 50% chance of miscarrying him. With Easton, they told me I needed Pitocin during labor. Enough said.

  • Paula says:
    I almost miscarried at 8 weeks. I was in the hospital and then on bed rest for a week. The rest of my pregnancy I had to see the doctor every two weeks because my pregnancy was high risk and I was having morning sickness around the clock. Around 4 months I could go back to seeing the doctor just monthly. I constantly thought I was going to miscarry.

    I had a really easy and hassle free labour.. the only problem was that i didnt have an drugs and had to be cut so i didnt tear.. now that hurts more than birth i think..

  • Kari says:
    BRAYTON WAS (MY 5yr old). HE WAS 6 WEEKS EARLY THEY TRIED TO STOP MY LABOR MANY MANY TIMES BUT AFTER 72 HOURS OF FULL BLOWN LABOR HE CAME OUT HEALTHY. WE DIDNT KNOW IF HE WOULD MAKE IT. BUT LOOKING AT HIM NOW. YOU WOULD NEVER KNOW HE WAS A PREEMIE

  • Christina says:
    Too long to post here. Short story-I had untreated/undiagnosed toxemia and woke up to gushing blood at about 32-33 weeks. My bp was 210/134 and they had to induce labor, but her heart rate dropped with each contractions, hence a c-section.

  • Shawna says:

  • Robyn says:
    All three were scary... my first I was at my last prenatal class, and we had just finished up, I was due in a month, but was scared I was going to be early, so my boyfriend at the time and I went downstairs to London Drugs to get pads, and I went into labour. My water didn't break (any of the times) so I didn't know I was in labour. We called his mom, and she said I'd know if I was in labour when my water broke, so we called his friend too, she said the same thing. So we called a cab home, went home and our neighbour was over and told me that yes, I was in labour, so we called my boyfriends best friend to pick us up, he came about an hour later and when I got to the hospital they sent me home because I was only 2 cm dilated... so 3 days later I had my son With my second, I was having a bath when I went into labour. I had nothing ready so I got out of the bath, went into the room and started packing. My boyfriend asked me what I was doing, and I simply said "Packing" He asked me for what and I said "The hospital" He jumped up off the bed and told me to lay down and he started packing... so after that was done, we went out into the hallway and realized we had no money to get to the hospital, and no phone to call an ambulance. Luckily, my boyfriends mom lived down the hall, and just happened to be leaving her room when we came out, so her boyfriend lent us the money for a cab. An hour later I was at the hospital giving birth to my second son, and the doctor told me to stop pushing, because the umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck, but she quickly unwrapped it, and my son was born happy and healthy My third, I was at home alone, at about 4am I had started feeling small contractions, but thought it was just Braxton Hicks. So my boyfriend went to work at 5:30am like he always does, and at around 6:30 I started feeling the contractions harder and closer together, so I went upstairs to my landlords house and no one was home. I didn't have a phone at the time, so I used their phone and called my boyfriends coworker. He answered and I told him I was in labour and he said "Ok, do you want to talk to Corey?" so I did. I asked my boyfriend what I should do and he told me to call an ambulance. So I did.. by the time the ambulance got there I felt like I couldn't hold her in anymore... but I made it to the hospital, feeling like I was going to pop every bump we hit, including the little bump going into the elevator, and when the nurses bumped the stretcher into the door... when I finally got into the room, there was no holding her back, there were no doctors available right when I got there, they had paged one to come, but she wasn't there yet, so the head nurse ended up having to come in and I was finally able to have my daughter... I had her just as the doctor was getting into the room

  • Kristin says:

  • Stephanie says:
    My scariest was with my first born son Noah, those who know me, know about it =(

  • Amanda says:
    It was actually while I was pregnant, but it has nothing to do with my pregnancy. We got into a pretty bad car accident when I was 5 months pregnant. Thankfully my son and I were compleely unharmed. I had a terrile headache, a bump on the side of my head and some bruising from my seat belt and that was it. I was so thankful that nothing happened to my baby boy.

  • Gemma says:
    only got one child and it wasnt really scary just painful and late was 11 days overdue

  • Linda says:
    when they told me my babies heart rate had dropped and that we needed to use the forcepes to get them out fast that happened with both

  • Heather says:
    I had to have a C-section with the twins, My spinal was higher than normal so I was numb from head to toe. With that said, I felt like I wasn't getting any air, andI totally freaked out until they put an oxygen mask over my nose and mouth, when they did I could feel the cold air as I breathed it in. Of course the Dr. didn't seem to worried since the monitor showed I ws comletely fine..

  • julie says:
    hmmm probably the day the doctor told me my blood pressure was 290/120 and that we needed to iduce six weeks early in order to protect the baby thank the lord his lungs were developed and he didn't need special treatment

  • Jolene says:
    After I delivered Ben, I began to bleed out. Doctor sent the baby and Mat out of the room before I even got a chance to hold him. For the 20 minutes it took to stitch me up and stop hemoraging I thought that I could die and never see either of my children again.

  • Kerry says:
    Wasn't scary at all. Skye's i was in pain but thats coz i didn't know what to expect being my first child etc

  • Nadia says:
    I don't really have any scary stories about either. I remember thinking during hard labor after 30+ hours that it hurt so badly that I would never do it again. Ha! Don't really know if that's the case now but I bet if I did it again I would kick myself for not taking my own advice.

  • Tijuana says:
    Being diagonsed with placenta previa and being placed om 2 months of bed rest!!

  • Vashti says:
    I had Braxtton-Hicks contractions twice and got sent right back home so, when I went into "real" labor, I was too stubborn to go to the hospital for the fear I'd get sent home again and nearly had a dry birth.

  • Nohblee says:
    i was told to stop pushing cause my cervix was swollen and not letting jaxons head come through, they said it would take a while to go down so i stopped pushing and about 10 mins later he was out without even needing to push, just 3 contractions and he was round the bend and out. then lost 1200mls blood and blood pressure dropped to 60 on 40 (not associated with life)
