I was scheduled for Wednesday morning at 9am for my induction. They called me around 7am and said that I’m going to be placed on call and that they will call me due to the hospital being full. So during that time I’m getting ready and cleaning our room and waiting for the phone call. I get the call like around 2:30pm. Thankfully my hubby job let him work from home that day since they knew I was gonna go in at anytime on Wednesday. I got there like around 3pm, which we checked in and we actually did not get a room in the induction floor due to it being full so I was placed in a regular rooms where you stay after you had the baby for visitors. We get to the floor and they start preparing everything. By the time they hooked me up to the machine with an IV, it was about 8pm. I got my cervix checked and I was just 1cm dilated and that’s when they were inducing me by placing a tablet medicine in my cervix so I can dilate. So about 10:30pm the nurse came in and had to reposition but didn’t say why. Then around 12 midnight the nurse had to reposition me again and that’s when the nurse said that my contractions are 3 min apart. The midwife comes in around 1am and she started to explain to me what’s happening. So with every contraction I was getting the baby heart rate would drop and that they didn’t like that. Pretty much my contractions were stressing her out and that’s a sign that my placenta was not doing it’s job during my contractions. So they gave me the option of dilating around but can’t GTD how the baby would react to it or have a C-section. Hubby and I immediately looked at each other and said C-section. We just didn’t want to put anyone life at risk at this point.
The midwife asked me at what time was my last meal/snack and I said around 10pm so then she said ok so at 6am we can do the C-Section. I said ok sounds good and the midwife left. I do hear the midwife talk to the doctor and the doctor said no we need to get this baby out now. I don’t like how the heart beat is dropping during her contractions. So they immediately came in the room and start wiping me down to get me ready for the C-Section. 😳😳😳
Let me tell you at the moment you really can’t sink in that you are about to have a baby. So they take me to the floor where they do surgery. My hubby is going to get scrubbed down and they take me into this big room super bright white lights with about 20 people in there ready to deliver my baby. They put the epidural in and I’m immediately numb from my breast under. I see they are about to put the curtain up so I can’t see anything and at this point I’m still asking for my husband. He finally comes in and he tells me “baby, I’m here” then we hear the dr said “Ok, Baby time, 1,2,3”
