At 37 wks exactly my water broke at 4:30 pm. I was hoping to keep her in longer but with the constant pain I was in for weeks, I was also pretty thankful. At 5:15. I was dilated past 3 cm and admitted. My nurse was an idiot and smelled like cigarettes. They freaked me out by telling me they couldn't find dd's heart beat and so I let them do an internal monitor. She was fine. Just rotating.
A little before 9pm I started pushing and my doc showed up. 15 minutes later she was trying to push pitocin. She cut a 3 rd degree episiotomy without even telling me. My nurse bullied me while I pushed as best I could. Deelia Josephine was born at 9:15pm on 8/12/12. 7 lbs and almost 20 inches.
My doc and nurses bullied me in the later part of my labor to change my mind about vit k and routine pitocin after delivery. Once Dee was there I really didn't bother to argue so I had those things even though I didn't want them. I did do it completely natural, however. I knew I could. Ugh all those women who gave me their word of wisdom: epidural. And laughed when I said I was going natural. So back to the story...
My doc sewed me up too tight and THEN delivered my placenta. Ugh yea ouch. It's 5 months later and I still can't have sex. Thanks doc. The part no one told me about... The tummy massage. More like tummy beat down. I screamed out in pain louder than I did throughout l&d. The nurse then said some more bitchy stuff.
Deelia is now almost 5 months and we're EBF. Needless to say if I give birth again I will not let that smurf happen again.
I got really lucky with my nurse but the epidural rate at the hospital I was at was 93%. The doctor tried to push for one especially since I was talked into being induced. I stayed strong and did it without. He laughed at me for it. Luckily my nurse supported me and didn't ask if I wanted medication at all. I am so sorry you went through that though and it really is hard with the first baby. I was scared to death and I ended up letting them give me post delivery pitocin too.
