well... i should start out by saying Jayden (my son) was never suppose to happen... not by choice... i wanted a baby sooo bad... every womans dream right?... well i was told i could never conceive... well the Lord produces miracles every day and i am SO BLESSED to have my baby boy... however, it wasnt an easy pregnancy nor delivery. first i start off on bed rest at 9 weeks due to bleeding they were pretty sure i would end up having a misscariage, the Lord had other plans!... i did fine until 29 weeks along and i went into preterm labor... i was in and out of the hospital for weeks... i had steroids for the babys lungs and we baught all the preemie clothes and care items. the doctors, my family, and i were sure he would be here early... Jayden must have been comfy in my tummy bc i was due on July 9th and he made his dramatic arrival on the 5th! i went to a community fireworks event like i did every year the night before and late that night around 11 i was begining to have HORRIBLE pains all over my stomach and down low where i couldnt even move... this continued through the entire night, i didnt call the doctor becaue iw as sure it would pass... i had been here SOO many times before, we were def. it was another false alarm... well around 12 pm the next afternoon i decided i wasnt going to wait they pains were more frequent and stronger... by then they were 2 minutes apart.. after getting to the hospital they confirmed that i was in active labor and was 4 cm... i didnt get an epidural until around 5... which by the way didnt work, it never helped my pain in the least...until it came time to push.. i started pushing at exactly 7 pm... and i got nowhere... the baby had moved his body in an odd position in my stomach and i couldnt bend over him to push... they tried to use the vacume on him 4 times! and he wastn coming,... by this time i was EXHAUSTED, i began to get dizzy and i almost passed out... they had to do an emergency c section. and when they went to poke to see if i was numb i wasnt it hurt!... like they were pinching me with something... so i had to be put under... i remember watching the anesthesiologist steadily shooting meds in my IV... the docs and nurses were all ylling about how big he was and i started to get concerned... he was born at 9:31 PM... but he wasnt crying... i started to panick and i was yelling why isnt he crying! and my mom (who i wanted with me in case of emergency) told me to give him a min. i heard him wimper and nothing after that... they put me under... i woke up in recovery. Jayden was sent to the NICU... he ended up being just fine although they kept him over night just to observe him. he was 8lbs 15 oz and 21 inches!.... BIG baby... ( i was only 108 when i got preg... i gained 78 lbs!) since then he has been a big! healthy little boy! hes my heart and soul and i wouldnt trade him or anything we went through for anything in this world... i am expecting again.. due March 14th 2010 and i hope this delivery goes better... im suppose to have a scheduled c section this time... the doctors recommended it... i would have prefered VBAC but whatever is best!
