Congrats! This thread was so inspirational and exciting!!!


Yes this definition sealed the deal for us even though we decided on this hypothetical name for a son before we got married!

Yesterday was one of the most beautifully horrifying days of my life. After I dilated to 7 centimeters stuff got real. The pressure in my bladder was unbearable by that point. I thought I had to pee but I didn't.
it took THREE hours  to get to eight centimeters. By this time it was 5:30 pm.
My midwife offered to break my water which I agreed to. This is when I feel labor began. I started having extremely intense contraction with an unbearable urge to push. I basically had a 7 lb turd lodged in my rectum and I couldn't run. That is a terrifying place to be. At this point I was laboring in the water.

 My husband informed me this morning  that I choked him for the better part of 45 minutes while I pushed with each contraction. He was behind me in the birthing pool and I had my arms up over my head clasped around his neck. Apparently I shoved my head into his throat with every contraction.
I remember that , but it never occurred to me to care in that moment how he felt, I was just trying to survive.
The final 5 contractions were pivotal to me. The third to last push felt like my clitoris ripped in half. Ring of fire my butt--it felt more like someone pour acid on my clitoris.
I felt this tearing continue as I pushed with the 4th and final contraction. Once I pushed his body out I felt like a new person.
THEN
I had to push out the placenta
. I thought that was the easy part.
It hurt. I was so frustrated I didn't even look at my child for the 1st few minutes. Then they put him on my chest for skin to skin contact and to nurse. I cried like a fool and did my husband. He latched right on and begin to nurse.  After 20 minutes I felt like my nipples had been scalded with boiling water. Once everything got cleaned up, I really looked at my baby and fell in love.


This little dude is a huge blessing and I am looking forward to the journey of parenthood!!!

That being said, NEVER again!!!! lol.




Aww thanks for the update Wifey! Your little one is soo adorable...but yes you have also made me rethink natural childbirth. Sleepy I will be numbed from the waist down.lol!

even after reading your post, wifey, i'm still going to try the natural route...i'm just going to make sure that epidural is close, lol.

did you feel very comfortable in the water? were you in a hospital or birth center?

I was up until the end...it was just too hard by then.
When all was said and done I got OUT of that tub, it was just too hot!!!!
I ended up delivering on my side on the futon in the nurseryDead
The water really helped me manage my contractions though!
But it did NOT lesson the pain or intensity. If anything it was nice to enjoy the water in between contractions. I would definitely use one again. I made it to 8 centimeters with my sanity intact because of that water!Star

Many Blessings,

I wouldn't! I am so glad he was not born on his original due date of 12-25 though.
That would have been tough!!! I definitely want him to focus on the birth of Christ and what that means for the world. This is such a wonderful time of year! I am glad he came during the holiday season <3

LOLLOLLOL
He has been looking like that the whole time!LOL
He finally smiled for the 1st time this morning after I fed him. This was his 1st taste of actual breast milk. It finally came in this morning at around 5am and my breast are SO heavy and tight!!! The burning sensation is no joke. My midwife says it'll pass once my bod figures out how much he needs. This little dude is voracious and nurses like a champ! My nipples look like raw ground beef. Ouch

My midwife and doula were at my house and took a peek at them. Apparently that is normal. I thought this only happened with an improper latch, but he has been latching correctly the whole time. I thought nipple pain could be avoided so long as the nipple was pushed past the hard palette in the baby's mouth.
Not the case for me at all. Apparently it will take weeks for my nips to callous up, then the pain should subside.

It seems like everything is so hard for womenLOL I am so glad I don't know the future, I would have completely avoided parenthood had I known  all this ahead of timeLOL I couldn't imagine my life without this little boyCryHeart It seems like my love increases EVERYDAY!!!!  I would do anything for him.

LOL It wears off later...believe me it does for many of us. Breast feeding does hurt at first but after a few weeks it gets better. If you find yourself having problems ask for help. Warm showers help ease things. He is such a cutie! Big smile

I just don't think it ever willLOLCry
The labor was such a wonderful experience, up until that last hour and a half. If it weren't for the ring of fire, I would have 2 more without hesitation! I just was not physically or spiritually prepared for this!
