The Birth Story- Saturday
I had been dilated to 10 and pushing for a good 2 hours when my doctor decided that something needed to be done. So she decided that the baby would have to come out with the help of a vacuum extraction. I was pushing for another hour without much success, and a c section was being discussed.
However at 3:22am I gave one final push and Josiah made his way into the world. He was a little in shock after delivery, so I got to look at him and hold him for a couple seconds, then they took him away for awhile to be looked at.
The rest of Saturday is sorta a blur to me at this current moment. We did some breastfeeding, got some rest, and I even took at shower! The nursing staff there could not have been more helpful and kind to me.
Want to know what happened Sunday and Monday? Stay tuned!
