Thank you thank you thank you, ladies!!!!
Let's see if I can remember the questions lol
I was induced because I also had a traumatic birth experience with Landon's labor at 41 weeks. Had to be induced with him & he truly SHOULD have been a c-section. 3 hours of pushing with him as well, 24 hour labor, collapsed uterus, hemorrhage & forceps. He was 9lbs 2oz 22".
When my water broke I honestly don't know! It all literally happened at the exact same moment. The water breaking, the dilation & her heart rate dropping, putting me on oxygen. Then we found out she pooped. So I'm going to assume that it was clear, it broke, she pooped. BUT later on (hours later) he referred to it as a "bulging sack" where some of the water was left, just a teeny bit. So he broke that. & she had already pooped. So I guess that could be part of the problem then, the meconium leaking into the water?
The cord was not around her neck, thank God.
Yeah a c-section would've avoided everything but omg I was scared to DEATH to have one. But I did tell them "whatever has to happen, happens". No it wasn't ideal for me to have one but I wanted to deliver her safely. But my doctor didn't want to do one at all & really wanted her to be born vaginally so he kept waiting to see what my body would do.
& again, thank you all. She is seriously the best. I love her.
Was literally just back there & Landon got to hold her for the first time. He LOVED her!
