MY LABOR & DELIVERY STORY: WITH PICTURES


Hey everyone so Aya had turns one Next month I’m gonna have a one year old And I thought it would be a perfect time Since she’s asleep in AE is out of the house. Just kind of sit down and talk to you guys and just Share my labor and delivery story, so I just wanted to start off with the beginning I guess just a little background and I found out I was pregnant um. I have PCOS which is polycystic ovarian syndrome You can look it up, and I’m gonna go into details, but you can have it on one ovaries or your can have it on both I unfortunately have it on both And it’s basically infertility you can have babies but It’s like it’s a very small chance so the doctors um did tell me that if I don’t have a kid than I eventually just have to say that hormone pills and fertility pills and All that jazz just things to help me you’re pregnant um But it didn’t happen. I didn’t need that so basically I Found that I was pregnant When I was 8 weeks pregnant I my manager I was at work And then I wasn’t feeling well like all the smells around my office building I was working out like we’re just getting to me I felt so nauseous, and I thought that it was probably like the Chinese food We had the day before cuz my office used to always buy us food And I was like oh, it’s just a stomach bug my manager at that time has five kids And she’s like a little bit more experienced when it came to having kids and the signs and the symptoms She’s like girl you’re pregnant like I know you’re pregnant. That’s if your senses are like up there You’re pregnant and I was like no that’s not me I can’t be pregnant so I decided to buy pregnancy tests from the Dollar General I didn’t want to spend like $15 on a pregnancy test And I wasn’t even pregnant that was it was just kind of like a just-in-case test You know I was like I’ll just go to the Dollar General on my way home Um I know I had read up that it’s best to check your if you’re pregnant in the morning I guess just because of all like everything built up your first like pees like Has the most in it so I waited the morning, but the next morning to take the test and my ticket It was positive I Literally like I had threw the Box away in the trash can with Instructions cuz I already like knew how to take pregnancy tests like I was 23 like yeah So I knew I had to take a pregnancy test so I threw that all the way I was like I looked at it, and I’m like It’s probably a false positive. I know you can have false negatives. It’s a false positive I opened like I looked at the papers like thought I missed something I don’t know I was like reading over the instructions again, and I was like trying to convince myself that I had a false positive I start looking online. I was like oh It’s like can you have false positives or whatever? But then I went to the room and I was like hey like I’m pregnant I showed him the test He was like he was asleep because I woke up super I woke up super early to go to work He had to wake up like later on So who does that asleep? She’s like and he went back to sleep? I think I didn’t like register in his head so once we woke up and we talked about it I’m like hey, you know I’m pregnant he’s like okay Just take another chela’s just like we decided to take another test so after the next like so the next day I came home another pregnancy test and then following morning I took the test and it was positive again, so we decided to just kind of not say anything xx family or friends yet we decide to go to the doctor and make it like final like if I was pregnant he’s worn out all the information and to Make it like yeah You’re pregnant like give us that like reassurance not like 100% like she’s pregnant So down the road is like this church, and they have this building? That’s like that attached to it’s like a little bit in front of it and It’s a pregnancy center for women so lately like offer like Just free stuff and their clothing and discounted stuff and free pregnancy tests. Just like a pregnancy office for women So I went there I took the test and I came up positive Then after like being in the room they took us to another room and we took our first ultrasound And then we saw her heartbeat, and that’s time I was only eight weeks pregnant so she was like a little tiny like she I saw her like I kept calling her a little Style because it was still tiny And Yeah, that final My new day was originally November 23rd so fast-forward The week before or the week of me giving birth Thanksgiving was coming up and It was like my appointment I think it was like a day before I was due were like treat for us to she she checked me And I wasn’t dilating or anything so She’s like you know we can schedule you to be induced if you like we have to schedule now and still since Thanksgiving was coming was just like schedule it now I Wanted to schedule it he did not want to schedule it He was all about waiting about 41 42 weeks And then maybe getting induce if she didn’t came he wanted her to cook up a little bit more in there But I wanted to see my baby like it’s my first, baby I was the first mom I was so excited like I wanted her to come I really had wanted her to come before Thanksgiving because I wanted to be like be there with her but So he scheduled to be induced Black Friday like the morning of Black Friday um So it’s my sister’s house on Thanksgiving I wanted a break still wasn’t having any signs of like going into labor. Everything was fine wasn’t in pain After um after dinner we decided to walk around the mall because you know everything’s like open So you walked around for like an hour to just to walk her out went shopping and everything Still didn’t feel anything. I didn’t break nothing happened I was so bummed out But I was still excited because I knew the next morning like we were on our way to the hospital for me to get induced so we went home, and then we woke up probably around like I say on five thirty Six’s six shifts because six ish because um We have to be there eight o’clock and the hospital is about like 45 minutes away from us and they were like make sure you make it there because You know you have an appointment if you don’t make it there on time Then they’re gonna basically give your room to someone else that comes in that is Going through labor so I didn’t want that because Like I don’t know to crush my heart because I knew what I had to reschedule and got the doc here and just do everything Again, and I’m so height. I’m like so act like it’s right there. So anyways we got um while we were getting ready, I started feeling pains but My water didn’t break And I’ve never been pregnant before so I didn’t know what like going into labor pains were You know I wasn’t like crazy bad. I was just kind of like like this sharp like pain So I was like hmm on our way there like a cup intensifying as like the minutes We’re going by I was like babe. I think like I think I’m going into labor I mean like my water didn’t break, but I think I’m going into labor before your water breaks So we got to the hospital we were filling out all of our paperwork before we head to the room you have to do like everything like the paperwork and stuff and then Well, it’s not the paper or the lady was like yeah, you might be going into labor, sweetie, and I was like Well, I mean today. I’m gonna either be induced or going into labor so she gonna She’s gonna come out like with next couple hours um So we got to the room and the doctors checked me and they were like yeah, you’re definitely going into labor My water didn’t break, but they’re like you’re going into labor We’re gonna check to see if we should induce you or just kind of let let it happen So I came back and they decided to just I was far along with God with labor. So they’re like okay, you’re good You’re like four centimeters already, which is like crazy because it’s kind of jumped, but like you’re for 470 meters, so you’re good. Let’s just Like let it be and just let her come so Epidural time they kept talking about epidurals and meanae you were all against epidural we didn’t want to do epidural epidural and The doctor kept coming in and a couple reassuring me like hey You know there’s gonna be a point where we can’t offer you the epidural anymore so decide if you want it or not because You know we have to have the guy come up or the doctor it was a guy Then come up and give it to you so the final time She came in she’s like hey, you know we’re gonna argue. Do epidural or not and at that time I was I was in pain. I’m not gonna lie I was in pain I was like it was so hard to make the decision cuz I’m like okay like if I take it now I’m good I don’t want to take up, but I kept saying I don’t want it But then if I say no like I’m gonna have to go for the rest this thing in Pain like I can’t do anything else about it like I could not get the epidural anymore So I I like chickened out got the epidural like okay? Let’s do it. I want to get that girl um So fast-forward to like you know this entire time were just hanging out in the room and stuff So it was time for me to get the epidural and the guy came up and he had to leave their room I guess for just like sanitary reasons So he told me you know you know punch the pillow and everything and When he was like pushing the needle in he’s like tell me if you feel like anything And I kept feeling it like on my right side the back. I’m like I feel it on my right side right side He’s okay, okay, okay, so that happened? He finished that all the sudden like I did not feel good I did not feel good, and I started to pass out and I they laid me back. I started to pass out and then I his heart Started heart rate started to go down this time and you still he was still waiting and wherever they made him wait He was still there this was literally right after the epidural So I’ll be nurses rushed and like I the hospital I went to Was amazing like it was Osceola Regional Medical Center in Kissimmee, Florida? Everyone here in Orlando usually goes to any Palmer, which is supposed to do this amazed. It’s a like a children hospital They do deliveries there and suppose to be like an amazing hospital to have babies but with my with my doctor She was she wasn’t under that hospital so with Osceola Regional which was a smaller Hospital But and I was kind of if he bought it, but I was like whatever But they were oh my gosh they were amazing I’m so happy I went to that hospital and I will continue going to the hospital to have my babies because the they were amazing But anyways back to that um we rushed in and they flipped me to my left side And then my heart rate started coming back I mean her heart rate started Coming back up and normalizing, and I was they gave me oxygen and I started normalizing They said that my my blood pressure was dropping So that was really scary and It was literally an hour later I didn’t even realize it then he came back, and he was like what is going on. He had no clue What was going on he thought? because I was just only supposed to get the epidural like and he was out there waiting the entire time and he comes in and I have like the oxygen mask on and I’m crying and he’s just like baby What’s going on? and I’m shaking because I Never went to the hospital for anything serious like this is my first time really be in a hospital like I’ve went to like Because I was sick, and I want an excuse out of work But I never really liked being in a hospital so I was freaking out like everything just like was so fast I was shaking he’s like what’s going on. I kept saying nothing nothing I mean I knew obviously something just went on but I didn’t want to talk about it I was so scared so I told him I was like oh my god I was I was passing out my look my blood pressure was you know I’m going down, and I his heart rate was going down, so he’s just like So he was scared and then they um they’re like oh do you want you know we can take the oxygen off? But the oxygen made me feel really safe for some reason it just it was very refreshing oxygen So I was like no. I really kind of was like can I keep it on for a little bit longer? so at that time Everything was okay I didn’t feel anything like I didn’t feel any contractions after that that the girl was Amazing like I’m so happy. Okay. The patrol was amazing I we were just waiting there my sister came and Slept with the like she slept there for a little bit she spent a couple hours Chillin, but the baby wasn’t coming out but was dilating so slow, but throughout that time I Was heart rate kept dropping, and they had to rush into the room a few times and flip me over Her heart rate was just kept dropping and they said that she might not be doing well with like the trip that I was getting the saline drips and everything so they Took me off of it and they like I think they I don’t know if they lowered it or took me off of it But they like took me off of it for a little bit. I remember this one time We’re asleep like don’t you know during the night? We were sleeping and then all of a sudden all the doctors just Rushed and like all the nurses like just rushed in and I guess her heart was like her heart rates going down and we were Just freaking out. It was it was really scary it was really scary eventually finally took me off of the saline drips because they thought that she wasn’t doing well with it and basically, what was happening was I was having contractions and When you have contractions, I guess like squeezes the baby or like their heart rate jobs But her heart rate was and then after the contraction her heart rate wasn’t like bumping back like fast enough Say something off the drips and everything And just time kept passing by and at this time I was Starving I did not know you could not eat until you have the baby They gave me ice and they told me I can’t really drink any water. I was only supposed to Chew ice I would mind you I didn’t eat the last time I ate was like the night before like 6 7 o’clock for Thanksgiving, so I was so angry I was starving like I’m like I Like my sister’s bring like chick-fil-a for a tea and everything I was so mad But yeah, so eventually they kept coming in the room and they kind of mentioned c-section And I didn’t want to see section I mean he didn’t want to do a c-section we want to hurt like I wanted to push her out We wanted her to come normal They had popped my water because my water was not breaking and I’m sorry I don’t have this in order because to be honest like It was a long night, and I really don’t remember like the order of it Like like exact be exact order and like the times and all that But yeah, so They have to pop my water because my water would not break but on its own so the doctor came and she’s I just need to see if like Makoni and once in your like any was Your stomach so when she popped the water. She’s like yeah the baby did poop in this stomach and When you do have her we’re gonna have to like make sure we rush to Excuse me. It’s like suck it out of her because that can cause complications if she swallows it So I was like okay another thing so I got into like go back like everything that’s been going on Like I hope they catch. You know the stuff before she Swallows it so Eventually like I was not dilating it was six hours later and six or seven hours later, and I was only at 6 centimeters and I just would not dilate I was about 6 centimeters They came they gave me like the peanut pit like the little peanut bowl ball. They tried everything they tried flicking me around I just couldn’t dilate like and she just stopped at that and They were like we’re gonna go speak with your doctor and see if she wants to go ahead and do the c-section and I’m like Okay, and I don’t know if it’s true or not, but they told me that After like six or so after a couple hours if you just stopped dilating then they’re gonna go go ahead and do the c-section So it’s kind of scared honey. We didn’t really want to do the c-section So they came in and they’re like yeah, we’re gonna have to go ahead and do the c-section You know it’s better or whatever, and I forgot exactly were they said, but we were like okay. Let’s do it We didn’t think it was gonna happen like right away so after like the doctors left They literally literally came out in like ten minutes And they had like the clothes for it eats who got ready in and they gave it to him they put this on So we’re just chillin hanging now We thought that like it would pop like he probably put on like later on like I was probably going I thought I was gonna have the c-section like an hour two hours like not really soon And then they come back in like five minutes later. They’re like oh you’re supposed to put the cold on he’s like right now They’re like yeah, right they started getting me ready to like trying to started life. They’re gonna Flip me over to like the other bed, and I was like okay, he was like what so he started putting everything on and he was just like freaking out so he grabs the iPad because We had our iPad at that time. He went to take pictures so you grab the iPad then we started rushing through the room and But when we went into the room for surgery. They made him stay outside. I guess like prepped me So he was outside waiting so I was so Scared like I walked in the room was so bright. I just saw all the lights I saw the table There was so many people in there Like it was crazy. It was like I Think like one go ahead her at 2:45 2:45 a.m.. On this one. I’m November 26, so it’ll probably like one two it was like pop Jewish and so I’m just laying there and I like was shaking like for some reason I Was freezing and I wish like not this like hidden and trembling I was literally like this The and I was like this the entire time that they were Performing the c-section my hands were like this and then they gave me more epidural And I guess they started cutting me up they put like this stuff in front of me so I couldn’t see anything that was going on my doctor came in and I didn’t even see her this was the first time I Saw her since the time that I saw her before Thanksgiving I don’t know if that’s no rule not but I did not see her the entire time I only saw the nurses and this was the first time I saw her since then Kind of upset in me that she didn’t ever come in and check on me, but anyways so I was shaking I was so scared they started preparing me, then he finally comes in and he is Nervous like he told he was sweating like our iPad was soaked. He was so Nervous like I’ve never ever seen him that and We’ve been together for seven years, and he was so scared and we were both just terrified like But it’s so happy. It was just like so many emotions at the same time we were about to see her, baby Then they were like like doing everything like pushing and tugging and and he was like they were I don’t to be honest I don’t remember anything that was going on like he was saying that they were having Conversations about what they were eating like what they ate that night or like the day before so like what that probe lunch or something? Like that their own conversation about what they were eating or what they ate I? Remember that because I was gone, so they were like performing the c-section Baby During the c-section they were like oh Let me know if you feel anything and I kept feeling like like tugs and pulls like on the right side I like my stomach and I kept telling them like hey, I feel like the pulling on my right side um So, but then it wasn’t really like a big issue. I guess they just want me to know like thinking I can feel anything And they just kept like giving me more of like the stuffs like numb you then finally we heard I cry and like it was amazing and then they Can go see her so he left like my bedside, and I was like strapped down I literally stopped out like this and I was shaking so much. They had my hands like kick strapped down Oh, so we I think they had my head. I don’t remember. I just couldn’t move anything So um he wants to go see her And he said that they pulled out like a huge syringe of like the meconium from her so I was so happy that They pulled that out and she didn’t have complications with that didn’t swallow it and after that they took her and He left with her And then he got to see her and take her first bath And they did the whole process with Him there because we were we opted to be there for every single part of her since she was born like we wanted to be There because they give you those choices and we wanted to have at least one person there with her so they had to sew me back together on and everything and They I was finally ready to go back to the room where it’s like be The recovery room we didn’t go back to our original room yet to go to a recovery room So on my way to recovery room I was not feeling good I always about to pass out They they had so much play about five like fake blankets on me, and they were heated blankets, but I was still Shaking uncontrollably. I don’t know if it was my nerd. I was really cold. I was shaking and all I remember is I Couldn’t remember like a lot for some reason I was just so like dazed out like All I remember was like people was Britain for bringing our bags in I don’t remember who bought our bags in but our bags were bought in Our stuff from the other room were bought in and then he comes in and he’s like do you want to see your baby?
