I turned 20 years old 4 days after my son was born. throughout my pregnancy i had preeclampsia, placenta previa, and incompetent cervix, and group b strep.. i was hospitalized at 28 weeks for preterm labor and almost lost my son. i spent 22 days in the hospital tyring to stabalize myself. when i was realised on july 6th, i was sent home on strict bedrest. my labor had to be stopped 5 times total before i had him. i went into the eval unit a week before he was born and i was laready 6cm and they sent me home. on aug 12th i went into the dr and had my biophsyical profiling done and i had a registered contraction and after it was over, his heart rate dopped dangeously low, so i was admitted for prolonged monitoring. the ended up inducing my labor which in turn only last for 5 hours. they started my pictocin at 7pm, broke my water at 8:30 and i got my epidural at 9pm when i was 8cm which never took. when i started my practice pushes, my sons heart rate kept dropping really bad, so i had no time for a delivery dose of medicine, and ended up doing it naturally.. i couldn't get him out on my own and they had to use the vacuum. while trying to get the vacuum on his head, the nurse stepped on the pedal on the floor and turned it on on accident and caught me and did alot of damage to me. he was born at 37 weeks, and was 5lbs 13ozs. it really upsets me when all these mom' sbrag about how perfecdt and fine their labor and everything was, and they take for garnite that they never had to think about losing their baby when i almost lost mine several times. and i wrong for being upset about this and being afraid to have more kids. i was already dilated to 2cm before i was 28 weeks..
