Update on Birth Story

So while discussing the birth story I posted with someone I realized I left out some of the biggest details.  I blame it on sleep deprivation and composing the post in another program but anyway.  The big point that I omitted from my birth story and that I have now fixed is that not long after getting my epidural, my blood pressure got really low and Colby’s heart rate went down a lot (it’s called a brady and made the monitors go off) so the nurses came in and put me on oxygen and when Colby’s heart rate still wasn’t rebounding they gave me a shot of epinephrine which burned off my epidural.  My epidural probably only lasted maybe 15 minutes and I most definitely felt everything and it was natural childbirth – even the nurse told me that I could tell people it was natural childbirth.  And it hurt.  A lot.  I thought I wanted to try it natural with Brady and it got to be too painful.  This time I knew I wanted an epidural and it was unfortunate it didn’t happen.  All that matters now is that I have a beautiful, healthy, baby girl.  But just so it’s out there – I felt it all.

    Haha, you’re a champ! I’m so sorry the epidural was a no go. You should have gone in wanting to avoid it and then it would have worked, you know how these things go! You are awesome!
