Baby Gideon born December 9th, 2013 at 8:07 am.
I was 10 cm dilated and his positioning was at +1, however my placenta ruptured while I was in labor, I couldn’t feel contractions to be able to push because of the epidural, and his head wouldn’t fit in my pelvis. I had to be rushed to get an emergency c-section. I was in labor for roughly 10 hours, including when they took me in for the c-section.
It was a fast yet very scary labor, but I’m so blessed my baby boy was able to make it through. I was so worried I would make it out without him.
After labor though, I was on very extensive watch because my blood pressure would not go up and when it finally did, it was way too high. I was still extremely intoxicated by the medication they used to put me to sleep during my section so I was in and out very often during my stay in the labor & delivery room.
Today was very eventful, and the beginning of my life with my lovely family. Any word along the lines of “happy” or “ecstatic” aren’t even close to defining how everything has and will be.
