|28-12-2010 - why I don't want to be induced
||My mood while writing this blog:|
I was induced last pregnancy... the reason the dr gave was because I had already been out of work for over a month, she was going to go ahead and induce so I could go back to work... supposedly I had high blood preasure... but it only seemed high at the dr's office. obviously I am not using her again this time arround. I think induction is becoming more and more something to make things more convinant for the drs. sorry if I am inconvinant, but after the pain to the induction, and then almost crashing after getting an epidural I don't want to risk it at all (they had to give me a shot of adrinaline to get my blood preasure into the normal ranges because it had dropped to like 86 NOT 86 /something... just 86) so seeing as an epidural isn't exactly an option... I don't want to be induced there by bringing the pain on hard and fast instead of gradual. still not 100% sure that it wasn't partly because my husband was in the room this past time arround and everytime I'd have a contraction he'd ask if I was okbut I didn't feel anything from almost imidately after the epidural was administared... which was pretty nice, until it came time to push. the nurses were asking if I felt any preasure or anything cause it was time to push... I couldn't even be sure I was pushing. with my first I wasn't even sure at first if I was in labor or not (good thing I was already in the hospital because my water had broken 5 days before) the contractions were not registering on the machine... so I contacted the nurse (the first time since I got there that I bothered a nurse) she came adjusted the monitor told me that she'd be keeping an eye on it at the nurses station and to let her know if they became more regulare or more intense... so I called my husband who had just gone back to work that night or the night before... and he said he was on his way. a couple minuets later the pain was more regular and starting to hurt so I pressed the button like three times before I got a responce. nurse came in asked if there was someone I needed to call I said my mom, she dialed the number for me (my little brother answered cause it was about midnight) he asked if everything was ok I said no, get mom... he woke mom up and I said momit's time... she was like huh? I said mom it's TIME!!! she said ok... we'll get dressed and be right there. the nurse asked me if I needed anything I said I wanted to go home... she said I had to have the baby first (I actually ment I wanted my husband but it came out want to go home....) then all of a sudden I felt like I had to have a BM... and I told the nurse I need to go to the bathroom... she asked if I needed to pee... I said "NO< I NEED TO GO TO THE BATHROOM!!!"... she looked and said... no that's the baby's head then yelled out the door for the dr. the dr gave me a local for an episiotomy (which didn't kick in before he started cutting) and then Robert was born, cried, and rushed off to the NICU... a minuet after they took Robert away Ken comes in the door asking if he needs to go home for the plunger, then sees the dr sewing me up... and is like... guess not.so my first hard labor was only like 45 minuets long.. and wasn't too bad, my second labor wasinduced about 6am or so, and born arround 2 pm... still not too long, but I still don't want the extra pain of induction!
