I'm totally impressed you walked out of the hospital too! Way to trust your gut.. stupid dr! I'm sorry about the bleeding but it sounds like you did a good job bringing your baby into the world safely.

I immediately turned on my computer to tell all my online friends, then i called my mom and my midwife. A few hours had passed and nothing was happening so Paul and I took a 20 minute walk. With each walk the contractions grew stronger and more regular. By dinner time the contractions were really intense and very close together. At around 10:30 pm i was only dialated 3 cm. I am ashamed to say that i was so tired and in so much pain i decided to go to the hospital. When we arrived i was checked and at 8 cm. That was fast!!! The on-call Dr. refused, yes refused, to participate in my VBA2C and would only deliver my baby by another c-section. UGH!! I got up, dressed, and walked right out of that hospital and went home, lol. It took a few more hours to complete dialation and the midwives came to the conclusion that the baby was in an ackward position. I had to push in the most uncomfortable positions!!! Squatting brought him down the most but it was so hard!!! At 5:40 am, after 2 1/2 hours of pushing, Elijah James was born - 8lbs 1oz, 21in. He was immediately laid next to me and Paul cut the cord. I'm teary eyed as i write this. Well, 6 hours after little Eli was born i had to be transferred to the hospital due to blood loss and low blood pressure (80/40), my feet turned blue. At the hospital the Dr. had to manually extract the blood clots from my uterus, i was still pain meds free and it hurt worse than having the baby. I had to stay overnight with an IV of antibiotics because i had a fever. The good news is that i didn't have to admit Eli but he was able to stay the night with me. i'm sure i left out tons, it's hard to remember everything. All in all i had an amazing birth and i would do it again in a heartbeat, except the hospital trip.
congrats
