Re: Avoided a c-section, but with mixed feelings
Honey I think your mommy instinct worked just fine just like it was supposed to!! I ended up with a repeat csection even though I wanted a vaginal delivery but while getting ready for my surgery I was having labor contractions. With each contraction ds heartrate dipped quite strongly in what would have been termed very early light labor. I got scared at one point (granted I was an hour away from a scheduled csection) and almost begged to be taken back RIGHT THEN!! but his h/r came back up and they were able to keep it up. When I had my surgery his cord was wrapped around his neck 2 times....he never would have tolerated true labor. So my instinct was CUT CUT CUT and your instinct was PUSH PUSH PUSH and it was right. Sometimes we just have to listen to our bodies.
Congrats on your little bundle
