Well, every pregnancy/labor and delivery IS different.



Anyways, yes the pregnancy with my DS wasn't ideal, to say the least. The birth for both SO and I were was very traumatic.



But now that I'm pregnant again, I'm taking better control of my birth and hopefully I'll end up with the birth that I want. And I hope that this pregnancy will also be a little bit smoother :)

^___That. My first one sucked. I'm making sure this one will be better. It helps to know why your birth experience was traumatic though. Was it something like pre-e or gd? That could happen again. Was it a shitty support system? That can change.

The story shortened they overdosed me with epidural aswell
As other complications
Which paralized my diaphragm when they layed
Me down in theatre I stopped breathing they had
To do emergancy section and resusatate me
I only first held Charlie when he was 5 days old x
Also punctured the fluid surrounding my spine which
Started to leak to my brain causing very painful head
Aches they had to take blood from my knee and
Elbow to put a blood clot into the hole were they
Punctured it with the epidural x

Dear lord! I suggest finding a midwife or a birthing center where something like that would never happen.



Good luck! :)
