I am so glad I found this group because I have a question that has been bothering me since I had my daughter in Jan 2010.... How many moms out there didn't get to see their baby in the OR? I was in labor for 23 hours and they had me push for 2 hours (she was head down but facing the wrong direction). After the 2 hours of trying to push my daughter out I told the doctor I couldn't do it anymore... I just knew she wasn't going to turn enough to come out. So at 2:11 in the morning my daughter was born via c-section. I thought that I would be able to see my daughter while I was still in the OR and they were stitching me up... However I didn't get to see her until I was in the recovery room... sometimes I feel like I got robbed of that special moment... my husband was deployed (he's in the Navy) so my mom and sister got to see Madison before I did... it still bothers me... has anyone else had this happen? And am I just being to sensitive about the whole thing?
