Some know my birth story most don't but without getting too carried away I'll go over the basics. It started with my son, Sawyer Dean, & a stubborn woman ---NO WAY -- & her "birth plan" (like that actually exists) to have a non-medicated, natural labor. At 41 weeks pregnant, only dilated to a 1.75 maybe lol the 25 hour process had this stubborn woman in an oxygen mask having full on labor contractions back-to-back without meds. I finally, FINALLY - DEAR JESUS - took an epidural to see if it would calm me down & help the process. It did not. And one unplanned, emergency c-section later..my beautiful baby boy was born<3
This brings us to Scar's birth story, which in retrospect, wasn't all that bad. I will say having a planned c-section is one of the scariest things I have EVER done. My spinal block or whatever the hell it's called wasn't working the way it was suppose to? My hyperactive, ADD, OCD self probably needed a horses dose lol. I do not know. But, the process that should take 5mins to numb my lower half -- Ya know, the part the docs would soon be slicing into like a friggin slasher movie--(ok, just my memories lol)-- Took 15 to 20 to what seemed like HOURS lol to numb. Again, my "birth plan" was to have a gentle cesarian. To hold my baby girl back to the room, skin to skin & have the closest thing to a natural labor experience a gal with child-bearing hips but not child-bearing parts could have. But, with the numbing issues my whole body to my lips went numb =/ So, that didn't quite happen. BUT, what did happen was still magical & thanks to the PC medical doctors & my favorite of all time most awesome nurse, Kathey Farmer, my experience was well...pretty amazing<3 My incredible sister took pics like a damned professional. =) My mom was the rock & the comfort I always need. My mother-in-law took care of Sawyer & was just wonderful. And last but certainly not least, my husband wowed me. Truly wowed me & made me fall in love with him all over again. And now I not only have wonderful memories & images that make my heart melt but I also have the most perfect thing in the world, our little girl.
