This blog has been started as a way to record all the exciting moments in Liam's life. So it only seems fitting to start at Day 1.
2. It is very common to vomit while getting an epidural, and you cannot move, thus throwing up in your partners face.
3. Shaking uncontrollably while getting an epidural (but told to stay still) is also fairly common.
4. Last but not least. Most women are having contractions while receiving an epidural, and you cannot move while feeling excruciating pain.
He went to go prep for a c-section. The worst part about this was that it took them an hour to prep for surgery and for the anesthesiologist to come back in. Ladies...note to self: Once they turn down/off the epidural they CANNOT turn in back up/on without the anesthesiologist. So I had to sit there for I don't know how long just feeling the contractions. This is when I went into another world. Thank God for Matt's aunt. The pain was so intense I felt the need to scream, hit, kick, walk, cry. I couldn't lay still. I was dying of thirst and was unable to have any ice chips or water because of the pending C-section. I literally thought I was going to die. Matt's aunt helped keep me focused as Matt was no longer able to. I remember just shaking in pain hoping it would be over soon. I was beyond exhausted.
|Somebody should have made me get my hair done!! However, this was the sweetest moment of my life.|
Anyway that’s our story of how Liam came into this world. Yes, it was the most difficult thing I have ever done in my life, but so worth it. It’s amazing how quickly you forget the pain once they put that baby in your arms. I remember thinking “nothing else matters”.
Life is good.
