birth story(: Hailey Newsome Due December 16; Garner, North Carolina 48 posts22nd Dec '12
Well on saturday around 4-5ish i went to the hospital bc the night before i had drank castor oil & then hadn't really felt my baby move and was having lower cramping. they ran alot of tests on me and round 8-9 they decided to admit me and induce! they said i was dehydrated and had mild preaclampsia. i was dialated 2cm & 25% affaced when admitted. they got me a room and put in the "balloon" it makes you dialate to 4 then falls out. after not having it in but maybe an hour it fell out. then next morning at 6AM they started pitocin. i went 21 hours in labor with no medicine. they finally said i had to get an epidural so my body could relax through contractions & they could turn my pitocin all the way up since i had only made it to 5 1/2 cm. after a few hours i only made it to 6cm so it was time for a c-section. i delievered my babygirl on her due date Dec.17,2012 at 5:37 am via c-section. shes so beautiful and i am truely blessed!

Congratulations! I also had an unplanned c-section. They're rough, but ANYTHING is worth these precious little babies. (: Enjoy your little girl.
