Tears Before the C-Section
Submitted by Michelle_xo
I went into hospital on Monday morning to get prepared for an induction because I was 2 weeks over the due date. When I got there they showed me my private room, I was told to put my things down and then follow the midwife to one of the birth suites, I was like "awesome! finally i'll get to see my baby soon!". When I got there they strapped me up to the machine where it shows the contrations and baby's heartbeat and had a talk with me about what they were going to try and do to induce the baby. They then inserted the cervidal which was as uncomfortable as all HELL! I wanted to spew! I then though, "oh god, if i can't handle this, how the hell am i meant to be able to handle giving birth!?" After they did all that, then that was it really, I had to wait 12-18 hours until it was taken out. It got taken out that night and they checked to see if any progross was made.. nope. nothing! I didn't dilate, my waters didn't break, nothing! So then they tried the prostin gel, which made me have more contrations, but they really weren't that painful at all.. that night I had some midwife who came in and say "oooh I can tell you're going to go into labour tonight so lets get you down to the birth suite." Because my partner hadn't smoked for the entire day he was all shitty and didn't want to wait around and said, "just give her some sleeping pills and do a cesarean tomorrow." Then they had a mASSIVE argument infront of me and I was just lying there absolutely bawling my eyes out, I couldn't believe this was happening, my partner yelled at me for not sticking up for him (I wasn't taking sides, I was just there crying) so then I ended up just asking for the sleeping pills which they gave me and I went to sleep.. in the morning my contractions had gone, and I wasn't really feeling anything, then another midwife came in and asked me if I wanted to go through with the cesarean, or since i was 3cm dilated they could break my waters.. but after what happened the night before I just said cesarean, I didn't want another massive argument like that ever again.. in the end after I had the cesarean and gave birth to my beautiful son, the doctors told me I couldn't give birth naturally anyway because my ovaries were ruptured.. well there you go. Maybe that's what made my partner fight for the cesarean.. he just knew.
