ok well i went to the hospital Tuesday (24th) to get induced, got induced at 4pm, they used cervadil mainly coz i'm a first timer and they preferred using that on first timers.
after having the cervadil put in i was put on the monitor so they could see if both me and baby would accept it and we did.
about 10pm i started getting really nasty period pains, i asked for some panedine forte, they didn't help with the pains at all, so after about an hour i tried having a shower to see if that helped, it didn't, i got out of the shower and went straight to the bed and curled up, my mum got the midwife and she gave me some sleeping tablets (which didn't help at all) and said if they don't work she could either give me a shot of pethadine or an examination, i started crying coz the pain was just getting a bit too much, said to my mum "these pains are only going to get worse, i want the epidural as soon as i'm in labour", mum got the midwife again and asked me if i want the pethadine or an examination, i said i wanted the examination, as she was about to do that she said "if your 3cm's dilated i'll break your waters", she then told me i was 6cm's dilated and she was going to break my waters, i started crying more saying i'm not ready do this while trying to do what she wanted me to which was hard as i was getting the pains while trying.
my waters got broken she then put that cable thing on babys head to keep an eye on the heart rate, they started to put a drip in me for the epiduralthen my body went into shock and started shaking, i had all these people around me and all i remember is some1 telling me to push, so i pushed and then heard "head is still too high, push again" so i pushed again and then baby's heart rate dropped to 30-40bpm, they then rushed me to theatre for an emergency c-section. on the way there i felt the urge to push and said i needed to push every1 told me not to so i tried not to but then my body started to the pushing by itself, got into theatre wanted to push again so i closed legs and just sucks on the gas (i think it was) while they gave me a general anaestetic.
i woke up in recovery and asked about my baby, every1 kept telling me she's fine but i didn't believe them. i was put on Morphine for pain relief, they stapled me. Baby was in the nursery almost all day and i only got to see her once but i don't remember it coz of the Morphine.
so my labour lasted 2hrs 17mins and i had no clue coz the pains started at there worst and i expected them get worse than what they were.
i'm pretty proud of myself knowing i went through labour without any pain relief. OH after my waters were broken i went from 6cm-10cm dilated in less than 20mins.
