||My mood while writing this blog:|
Since my last page was deleted I wanted to rewrite my birth story.
On Tuesday I had alittle bit of blood come out and I called the doctor. She said that soemtimes you can lose some of your mucous plug and it grows back and that I shouldnt come in unless I was having contractions. So I just put it in the back of my mind. Wednesday Im at work and my BF texts me and says that he was pulled over and because he doesnt have his liscense they towed the car so Im crying like crazy because to get a car out it costs a little over $200 and thats what I had saved up to get some baby stuff. So Im crying for like 3 hours straight and my manager lets me go home. That night my BF and I got into a huge argument so I went to sleep in the babys room on the floor. Well that lasted about 10 minutes and I got up and went back to the bed. So I fell asleep and next thing I know I hear and fell a POP! And I wake up and do sort of a kegel and felt a whole lot of fluid come out. Its 3am. So I tap my bf and say I think my water broke and hes half asleep and said are you sure you didnt pee on yourself again. So embarassing. So I stand up and call my mom she told me to lay down and stand back up and see if any more comes out and call her back if it does. So I do and some more comes out and I try to catch some with my hand I know gross but I wanted to see what color it was and it was clear. So I call the on call doctor and shes says it sounds like I need to come in. I call my mom so she can come get me since WE DIDNT HAVE A FREAKING CAR grrrrrr. So she comes and we get to the hospital at about 4ish. I get wheeled up to labor and delivery and they have me sitting in that wheel chair waiting to go back into triage for about 30 minutes and by the time they call me back and I stand up to walk back there the wheel chair seat has a puddle of fluids in it. My mom says yup your water broke. So they take me back and ask if im in any pain and I tell them no. They said since I was only 34 weeks and hadnt been tested yet for group B that I couldnt labor in the tub. I was pissed. So the nurse checks my cervix and says that im almost at a 4 and I was floored. I wasnt in any pain how could I be so dialated? So She asks if I want the epidural and I tell her no. She gave me a funny look like really? I didnt have anything with me I didnt have any hospital bag or my birth plan.
So they put me in my own room and gave me an IV. I started to feel some contractions and they got strong. I just would breathe through them but no one could talk while I was having a contraction. I would go shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh. Until the contraction was done. My boyfriend decided to go out and smoke a ciggerette. About 5 minutes after he left out the room I felt a really bad burning pain and the only way to get relief was if I pushed. So a nurse came in and by this time im in pain so I say I WANT THE EPIDURAL! So she chuckles like I knew it and said ok and walked out the room. A few seconds later I realized OMG im pushing im not supposed to ! So I told my mom to go get a nurse so she runs and tells the nurse that im pushing and they take their sweet ol time coming in. 10 minutes later she comes in and checks me and says "sweetie you dont have any cervix left!" My heart stopped. It couldnt happen this soon! So I look at my mom and yell call T tell him to come back in NOW!
Then a bunch of people start running around the nurse is making phone calls their taking the bed apart all while telling me DONT PUSH YET and I couldnt help it. So finally my BF makes it back in and the dr comes in and tells me to push. 2 pushs later I heard the most beautiful sound. My daughters cry. Of course they couldnt place her on my chest because she was 6 weeks early so they take her and make sure shes breathing and all that good stuff and about 15 minutes later they hand her to me but tell me I couldnt breastfeed yet. I was mad. So I got to hold her for about 10 minutesand she was so beautiful and then they take her down to NICU. I made my bf go with her. He came up about 30 minutes later and showed me some pictures of her.
THEN this HORRIBLE EVIL nurse comes in and says "this is not meant to offend you but when someone goes into labor and delivers very quickly that is a sign of drug abuses namely cocaine and we have to do a drug test. I was floored. WHAT???? I wouldnt even take tylenol while pregant and you think I was doing coke?? So she wasnt to put a catheter in me but I told her no I would go to the bathroom myself. So she follows me in the bathroom and watchs as I pee in the cup. I was in so much shock I couldnt even speak. So of course it came back negative but I honestly think thats the reason they wouldnt let me breastfeed.
Trinitee weighed 5 pounds 4 ounces and was 18 inchs long. She had to stay in the hospital 6 days and left at 5 pounds 0 ounces. She is the highlight of my life and I couldnt imagine loving anything more than her.
