So, i HAD written my labor story out, but i forgot BG logs you out after a while (it took me a good 2 hours to write it) so i said screw it... i'll write it out completely again later lol i'll just highlight the story points this time (and copy it before i post incase it does it again)
Jairre Izekiel Malechi was born June 11th, 2012 at 6:39pm after 11.5 hours of labor. He was 7 lbs 10 oz and 20" long.
I was induced at 7am. I hit 9cm's at 5:15 and was fully effaced so they had me do little pushes to try to get the last lip of a cm to give. When i was pushing it felt weird. I figured it was the fact i wasn't technically dilated all the way that made it weird. All i knew was i had NO urge. A few minutes later i was 10cm's but the urge still wasn't there. They wanted me to give big pushes. I couldn't. The pressure was there but everything in my body was telling me NOT to push. I kept saying, "something feels weird. There's something wrong. It just doesn't feel right." so they let me stop pushing and said we would just wait till my body told me it was time. I focused through contractions for over an hour just visualizing him moving down more, since the dilating and effacing was already done. Finally, i began to feel SOME urge to push. It hit at the tail end of my contractions and the urge was gone before i even got to 10 seconds of pushing but it was a start. His heart rate was falling so they put me on oxygen. I hated it. I threw it off a couple times because it was so frustrating. I was burning up so they put cold washcloths on my face and neck. I couldn't get him to move under my pelvic bone so my doctor had me lay flat on my back and she used a vacuum to help me push him past my pelvic bone. Finally, i could push him out. I could barely see because my eyes were so swollen (i busted the blood vessels in my face neck and shoulders pushing him out), but i could see a full head of wavy dark hair and two big dark eyes looking up at me and i could hear him crying. I still cry every time i think of that moment <3
The doctor held up his umbilical cord. There was a huge knot in it. She said it was probably the reason his heart rate kept dropping. She also said it was probably why i felt no urge to push for over an hour. Something was telling me not to because the strain could have tightened it even more and caused a cord accident and a tragic outcome. She said i was lucky it hadn't happened at the end when i DID feel the urge to push. I think a higher power was at work there (if u don't believe that is fine, but i do...).
