where the wild flowers grow
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.
