I had my baby Jayde October 9th. She was due the 14th, but she was ready to meet Mommy and Daddy.
I had an appointment Monday the 8th and when I was checked I was still the same 1-2 cm and 60% effaced. I was kind of disappointed because the doctor said if I didn't have her by Monday the 15th we would be scheduling an induction for the end of the week.
Tuesday October 9th:
About 3 am started having severe period like cramps all through my back and pelvis. I slept for a few hours, but was up awake a lot. I got up with my fiance as usual about 7:20 am so he could get ready for work. I told him I was cramping pretty bad, but took some Tylenol to see if they helped with the pain. It didn't do any good. The cramping was still bad and every 2-3 mins they would get really intense and it would put me to tears. I let my fiance know and after I called the doctor's office at 8:30 am and was told to head up to L&D. Got there about 9 am after he got home from work. I was still the same, but Jayde was being very sleepy. Things were going pretty well, besides the painful contractions. After a few hours I started getting contractions with only a pause of a few seconds between each one. My doctor came in and said I could go home and possibly have to come back or they could give me some morphine so I could get some sleep. I decided to go ahead with the morphine because I wanted to be well rested if we ended up having our baby girl that day or night. I got about 1 1/2 to 2 hours of sleep. My fiance accidently bumped the bed which startled me, but I shortly started to doze off again until all of a sudden my nurse and doctor were rushing into the room. Baby Jayde's heart rate dropped severely it was only about 20-30 bpm. They put me on oxygen and started an IV and soon her heart rate was back up. So I stayed up and was talking to my family through the contractions. About 2:30 pm or so my nurse came in to roll me over to my other side and Baby Jayde's heart rate dropped again to 20-30 bpm. So after getting oxygen again and it went back up my doctor came in. It was time to make a decision, I was only about 2-3 cm dilated, and he said I could keep going on my own and see what happens or go for a c-section. We weren't sure if her heart rate would drop again or not. After he asked me that I started getting very intense contractions so it took me about a half hour to make my decision, plus I was really scared. So we went with the c-section the important thing was that our daughter be born healthy.I got took back to the surgery area where they did a spinal block and gave me a dose of morphine to last for a good 20-24 hours even after the spinal wore off. As soon as I got on my back I couldn't feel much of anything below my breasts but I felt liquid come out and I looked at them and said "I'm really sorry if I just peed" lol they looked back and informed me it was my water that broke. So I got lucky having it break on its own. My daughter Jayde Ann was born at 3:45 pm on October 9th she was 19.5 inches long and weighed 7 lbs and 13.5 oz. I am EBF and she is already a pro. I am very happy to have my baby girl even though it wasn't how I planned. But she is healthy although she has had bad gas that upsets her tummy and she sucks really hard. My nipples are already cracked. She is so adorable! Will post pictures later on.
