Ssmith S Baby Story

ssmith - May 2 turn to share!! At 13 days over due...I was induced. Labor started at 1pm, and I had 6.5 natural labor. Then things all went to into my back. Back labor is 1000X's more painful than normal I had to get an epidural. Dilation was going very slowly though....maybe 1cm after 7hrs!! By midnight, I was only 3cm dilated. I was getting frustrated and concerned about the baby...even though the baby was tolerating everything just fine! Then at about 2:30am...the back labor came back full force...despite the epidural!! I was scared because I figured I was only 3cm dilated at midnight...I still had HOURS to go. The Dr. checked me at 3am, and I was 10 cm!! Talk about super fast progress!! I pushed for 54 minutes and baby CAITLIN ELEANOR was born. Thursday April 27, at 3:54am....9lbs 3.5 oz!! She was absolutely gorgeous from the minute she came out, didn't even have a cone head! I've never seen a more perfectly gorgeous baby in my life. Now, at 5 days old...she seems very content and relaxed. I have been struggling with horrible emotional imbalances, and have been VERY teary. Talk about overwhelmed. I am feeling better now, and the br___tfeeding is going much better too...which helps. I will miss this forum....I've received so much great support from you ladies! Congrats all....

HI ssmith congratulations! Good sized bub too! I know that emotional rollercoaster only too well, but just accept it for what it is ... hormones and dont let it worry you about not bonding or depression etc ... it is purely our hormones going crazy at a time when your body (and life) is going through so many changes. It will get so much better ... really!
