I got pregnant after having a miscarriage 3 weeks into my first pregnancy. When I found out I was pregnant again, I was so mixed emotions about it! well, at 7 months pregnant, i started having contractions, my husband and I went to the hospital and they were able to stop my contrations giving me 3 shots. Well, in Feburary I started having contrations again, but this time it was worse! The contractions were 4 mins apart. When we arrived at the hospital, they put me in a room. I was put in a room on bed rest and a liquid diet! The had me on magnesium and gave me stadol for pain! On that Friday morning at
4:00 in the morning the doctor decided to let me have her on my consent. I had a hard labor!! Nikki was born at 5:45 that afternoon and of course I had 15 people in the room with me while I was giving birth to my daughter! When she was born, the nurses cleaned her up and let me hold her for 2 sec and then took her to the nursery intensive care unit! There she had to stay in the hospital for a week and a half! She weighed 3lbs and 15ozs. She is now home and now weighs 7lbs and 15ozs! I am very happy that my baby is growing, but I can't seem to find my happiness! People say it is postpardom depression. I don't know what it is! I just feel like i'm a bad person at times! Anyway, does anyone feel my pain? Does anyone have any advice that I can use to help me? Thanks!
