She never did cry until the took her from me 15 mins later.

A pedi came in to asess for broken bones, and she had a lot of bruising on her head, and stork bites but no coning. I was confused at first about why the concerns for broken bones, and my husband was like, you didn't realive two nurses standing on stools practically jumping on top of you? Then I vaguely remembered pain in the area and small flash memories.
I don't think pushing to get baby under pelvis is necessarily the same as fundamental pressure, someone correct me if I'm wrong. It sounds like you had shoulder dystocia, my first 2 had very similar things. Atfter the gaskin maneuver failed they flopped me over and used the pelvic pressure to try and unwedge them. I didn't remember after my first birth either until i started looking back, i think i had blacked it out because if was really terrifying.
