Hi My name is Crystle I have a 16 month old son Daniel!! He was 9 lbs 21 1/2 inches!!! he was due on Oct. 29th 2007 but of course with my luck he was a few days late. I was induced on Nov.1st at 6 am. The Dr. was so sure I would have him by 5 pm but of course that didn't happen either! in fact NOTHING had happen by that point! I was in no pain my water didn't break He just did not want to come out. So a little after 5 they broke my water and then came the pain shortly after. I dont think I lasted to long after that before I got the epidural. The epidural was working at first but wore off faster then I expected, something was wrong with the iv drip part of it so they had to keep injecting it in about every 3-4 hours! yes, it was a LOOONG labor. So at this point the Dr. said I should be able to start pushing around 9-930. Suprise suprise didn't happen! Finally at about 530 am I was able to start pushing. at this point I had barly slept, ate or drank anything in about 2 days :( I was exausted but very excited to meet my little man! So I was pushing and pushing and pushing and he still just did not want to come out. 3 hours into it I was begging for a c-section. Did I mention I had a mid-wife not a Dr. there. Well anyways mid-wifes cant do c-section so as I feel like i'm going to pass out if I push anymore. the mid-wife tells me she'll call the Dr. because she finally realized I really did need a c-section and she comes back and tells me the Dr. is at home letting her dogs out!!!!!! She didn't give me anything to stop the pain while the Dr. "was letting her dogs out" so as i'm sure most of you know when you need to push you can't control and have to push. so it was now about 930 when the Dr. got there (over a hour later) and he was born at 9:57 am :) best day of my life but also the hardest! The only thing I would change is my Dr. of course!!!!!
I love to hear labor stories so please share yours
