Hmm noting really dramatic for me. Doug was definately the worst lol but then again he's the only one I was in labor for.

Went in on a Thurs. night because my water was leaking. They decided to keep me(I wish they hadnt...but thats not how I felt at the time haha). Friday morning they started the PIT, increased it every 30 min!! Put up with the pain of that for the next 12 hrs lol, I was still only 3cm but I begged for the epi sense they wouldnt let me out of bed because my water was leaking. Got the epi, they broke my water, by 10:30 that night I was still only at 5 cm and I let them talk me into a csection . Doug was born at 11:32 pm. Oh and I puked all over the nurses as soon as they laid me flat on the OR Table

Logan and Bekah were planned csections so no drama there lol.

yeah it's funny how much your thoughts change when you have kids. If you can count how many times the baby woke you up last night on one hand it was a good night .

Re: Thursday ~ FTLOC

Qotd: What's your most dramatic birth story?


ok maybe just that the nurses said I wasnt in labor with contractions every 2 minutes and pain I couldnt stand... Also was told I have a very low pain tolerance which I do not.. My hubby did sleep through some af my Bad contractions.... thank god my mom was there
but here is the whole birth story of brayden as written by my mom

9:00--Dr started Meg on cytotec pills

3:00, she had her third dose and was beginning labor on her
own--contrax every three minutes, talking thru them, eating

Dr came in--dilated to 2, 80% effaced

contrax throughout evening and night--talking thru them, but slowly
becoming more uncomfortable

9:00 (we heard from a family friend nurse that Dr was planning to give
Meg a sleeping pill and start Pit in the morning--all three of us said
NO WAY)

9:30/10:00 Dr checked her again--2+, baby down more to a -1
at this point Dr said "When you get to 3-4 I will break your water,
I'll be back in an hour or two.

About 10:30, the friend nurse was going off duty--she again mentioned
the sleeping pill, Meg told her the DR was planning to break her water
soon. The nurse, no, he has gone home for the night and no nurse will
call him out to break your water. At this point the nurse offered Meg
the epidural, but Meg was doing good on her own.

Labor continued to get stronger and more painful, as labors do--
contrax contined reg and strong.

At midnight, Meg asked to be checked. Enter nurse 1 (a CNM) VERY not
happy about being asked to check Meg, did so, told Meg she was close
to 3 and 50% effaced. *I* said "hmmmm she was 80% effaced just two
hours ago--what happened?" Nurse 1 did not like me questioning her
and said "It is subjective." She then advised Meagan to take the
ambien. Meg told her no. The woman promptly shut off the monitor and
the light and said "welll get some sleep!"

Meagan continued to have a lot of pain... a lot more than I expected
for being in the early stages (remember not quite 3cm.) Meagan was in
pretty bad shape--and the contrax changed from every 2-3 minutes to 30
second contrax, 60 off... repeat three times with a three minute
break, 60 sec contrax and start cycle over.

At close to 2:00 I asked Nurse 1 if she could hook up monitor and to
check her. Nurse 1 said "welll it won't make a difference" very
rudely. I asked "why" wondering what she meant. She explained ever so
impatiently that Meg was having irregular contrax, her extreme, barely
hanging on pain, was due to pain tolerance level, and that checking
her would not change anything. I said "welll she wants to be checked
and it may encourage her. Nurse did not come in.

At this point *I* am starting to feel a little panicky inside about
the extreme pain for only being at a 3.

Twenty minutes later, Clinton went out and repeated the request. He
got "I will be there." to which he replied "That is what you said 20
minutes ago."

She came in, checked her--did not tell us anything until I asked and
the answer was "the same" Meagan asked about the epidural--Meg was
moaning very loudly, and rolling sode to side/writhing on each
contrax, which were coming closer and closer. Nurse 1 said--too soon,
it will slow your labor and walked out. (Oh she did offer to put a
pain killer in her IV????)

Enter Nurse 2 (40 year vet there--head nurse of OB) Meagan asked her
about the epidural. Nurse 2 said she needed to be in "active labor"
first. I asked "what is active labor?" Nurse 2 replied "you need to
be 2cm" Meg said "oh good I am already at three." Nurse 2 said "well
you need to be 4cm for the epidural" and walked out.

Now I am a big anti intervention, but I was getting very angry and Meg
needed something soon--some dilation, something.

Meg, Clinton, and I took about two seconds to decide to buzz the nurse
and tell her get the epidural ready. NOW. We told Nurse 2--Meagan was
offered the epidural hours ago, so we know she can have. Basically we
said--Make it happen.

Welllllllll there is much to do to get ready for an Epidural. Meagan
continue to be in extreme pain--nurses never once talked to her about
her pain, never offered ideas.... they just hooked up stuff.

At 3:30 Mr Epidural came in. The nurse had to do a check for his
records-- hmmm.. 5 cm.

4:00 Mr Epidural completed the threading of the cath. and asked for
her to be checked again-- hmmmmmmm 7cm.

At this I couldn't resist saying sweetly "wow I bet you are shocked at
how far along she is." Nurse 1 said (and I about choked) Oh I knew
with her pain, she was going to move fast. (oh realllllly--less than
two hours ago the nurse said she was not even in active labor yet, and
the perceived pain was due to a low tolerance)

About 4:20 the Epidural kicked in. Nurse rechecked her--10 cm and bag
of water bulging. (2 hours after comments about not in active labor )

4:50 Dr walked in and broke water
4:58 baby born
