Well, it goes as follows..

I went in on Wednesday for induction, which started at 10A.M, they had me hooked to an IV with pitocin which they raised the amount introduced into my system periodically.

By 7:00P.M., I had made only enough progress for my doctor to break my water. After that, they had to put in a catheter, and I couldn't get up to labor anymore. I was bed ridden.

I continued to labor with contractions as strong as they could be until morning the next day. I'd gotten an epidural, but it was placed incorrectly so it wouldn't work properly. Whenever they would bolus it, it would cause me to have a very insanely painful back spasm.

By the time my doctor came to see me the next morning, I'd only dialated to 6cm, so we both decided to go for a c-section. I went in and was given the epidural for the section, which caused me to have another back spasm, except 10 times more painful. During the c-section, the anesthesiologist had to gas me.

Afterwards, I was taken into recovery for 2 hours, where they injected me with morphine a few times, and then palpatated my stomach.. to which I replied with a "#%$#@$% you". I normally wouldn't be so rude, but for one, it hurt so bad..and two, I was on a lot of drugs...

FINALLY, I got back to my room, though still in a daze, and was able to hold my baby.

I spent a good 4 days in the hospital and I'm still unable to walk too much. I finally got to come home today, and little Freyja is sleeping really well.

Congratulations Meghan, little Freyja is just absolutely gorgeous. All the best to you both.

by my illicit exquisite dream
but I can't really wake up

*beaming at you*

She is beautiful, of course. But then, with you as mom, she simply couldn't miss.

Rest...be well. And oh, enjoy...

You've begun a magical love affair sweet lady.

Congratulations Meghan!
I've been thinking about you so much lately.
I'm so glad you popped in to let us know how it went.
I'm sorry you had a bit of a difficult time with the labor and delivery..
But believe me, just look into her eyes and
you will see it was all worth it!

~Big hugs to you and that adorable daughter!~

Now that is the sweetest little goddess of love yet to be born this era!  I too remember that first push after a ceasarian, I could have killed someone!  The memory fades of pain fast with all that love in your arms doesn't it?  Congratulations, and welcome to our world, Mz. Freya

Meghan, as a gramma, I can tell you whomever invented that vibrating bouncy seat with the things hanging down, is my hero!  Hope you got one of those as they can save your sanity.  If not?  I would love to send you one if you tell me where in an email?          I also have a trick of putting something into the crib, carseat or whatever carrier of choice is on the go.  I can't put here what it is, (maybe in adult     ) but it sure works in a pinch LOL, but I'll give you a hint - it vibrates - is smaller than a breadbox, and bigger than a toothbrush and comes with batteries.  I remember one time when my son almost died of embarrassment  when it dropped onto the floor in a mall once, and I swear this is a true story.  I had forgotten to remove it from the carrier.  I can't wait for you to share some of yours with Freya with us all here.
