Had my baby! C section details..


I had my baby girl monday 4-29-13, and I named her Monica Rose (mia for short). I had a scheduled csection so I went into the hospital and found out the little period cramps I was having were actually contractions!! They were 4-6 minutes apart and lasted about a minute and a half so either way she was ready to come out . Ill go over what happend to me just incase you guys are nervous about yours:

They hooked me up to the machines, asked me questions and I had to change into one of those stupid gowns. Then I got tons of IV fluids, and had a chat with the anesthesiologist. Then they wheeled me back into the csection room. My mom was there with me but they didnt let her back with me until after the spinal was in. When I was getting the spinal I didnt feel alot of pain just discomfort (He had to try different times as I was feeling the left side getting numb) but when he finally hit the right place they layed me back and I began to feel tingly. there are a lot of questions regarding spinal/epidural pain and to me THE SPINAL DID NOT HURT, it was just uncomfortable, pain wise maybe a 4. So after I was numb they put the sheet up and the anesthesiologist kept talking to me asking if I was uncomfortable or nauseous. If you feel nauseous TELL THEM! DO NOT WAIT!! So my doctor poked and pinched me down there and I didnt feel a thing, they inserted the cathater once I was good and numb and then they started the csection, I felt nothing but tingles, it was a pretty wierd feeling. After about 10 minutes I felt tugging (I was litterally being shaken around the table from side to side) and finally she was born!!! At 5:51pm My big girl was born at 9 lbs 13 oz, 20 inchs long.She was handed to my mom because they had my arms tied down. My mom cut her cord (which the dr said was VERY healthy) and they bathed her and her and my mom went to the nursery. The doctor said it was good I had a csection, as they even had trouble getting her out that way too. they sewed me up and put staples in me (never felt a thing) and then I was wheeled back to my room. My mom came back with the baby and the nurses and I finally got to hold her. The baby was NEVER out of my sight or my moms sight BTW. I wasnt aloud to eat until around 4am the nurse let me have jello and popsicles. The next morning I was up walking by 6am and my catheter was out at 7am. My IV was out by 11am. ONLY TIME I EVER FELT SEVERE PAIN WORTH SAYING A 10 WAS WHEN THE NURSES HAD TO PUSH ON MY STOMACH AFTERWARDS. Getting the cathater out wasnt really painful, really unconfortable kind of like when you have a bladder infection and you go pee. I had to stay for 2 nights, because I had lost so much blood. My baby slept an hour the first night, and kept cooing and making baby noises all night. I was able to come home wednesday (may 1st), I LOVE MY BABY!!!! Ive been getting more and more sleep since monday, and my milk came in yesterday Baby mia has only lost 4 oz since birth.


Id like to thank all of you guys for your support uve givin me these 9 months Heres baby Monica:

Congratulations! She is beautiful!
I am to have a scheduled c section on July 19th. I am really scared and your story has helped me feel better. Just wondering why they told you not to wait to tell them that you were nauseous?
