Hi Ladies. I gave birth a few months ago by c-section. I was induced initially and didn't have the section until nearly 48 hours later. Everything was going fine at first and slowly went down hill. The contraction were regular and intense after breaking my water so I had an epidural. the epidural failed after a couple of hours and I was only 7 cm. The doc thought the rest would happen quickly so didn't have my epidural topped up. I reached 9.5 cm about an hour later but didn't seem to progress any further. the doc had me push while she tried to push the little bit of cervix back. This only caused the remaining cervix to swell. After this my epidural was topped up and I was told to have a nap until the swelling went down. About and hour or two later I began pushing again. I pused for about 1.5 hours and the baby did not move at all. The obgyn was called in and he decided to try forceps. At this point the epidural had worn off again. Easy to say, it wasn't a pleasant experince. The forceps didn't work and caused me a tremendous amount of pain. They took me to the OR and gave me a spinal. They tried the forceps once more and nothing. After delivering my baby by section they realized she had been posterior and that was why my labour was so drawn out, painful and I was unable to push her out. I'd like to try for a vaginal birth next time but am afraid of having a repeat experience. Anyone else gone through something similar than had a vbac?
