four weeks (yesterday)✨ celebrating by sharing JACK’S BIRTH STORY on my BLOG! link in bio 🥰🤰🏻🤗 ...

LAST BIT I PROMISE- I came round and heard a baby crying. “Give me my baby”. I was passed her and at that point the anaesthetist came up to me. Her words are as clear now as they were then. She said “you had a panic attack. You need to get that under control”. Now 10 years on it seems surreal that at the moment I was handed my baby that happened. Why didn’t I tell her to do one. Why didn’t I question what she was saying? I remember feeling embarrassed that I had caused all this. 
Amara took to breastfeeding like a dream with wires still attached to me I gave her her first feed. 
Hours later I was by myself and a midwife came to check on me. I burst out crying. She asked me what was wrong and I broke down. “My panic attack almost killed my baby and me” she looked so confused. She said she was going to get someone to come and talk to me. It was then explained that something had gone wrong with the spinal block. I hadn’t had a panic attack. Rather than numbing me from the waist down it numbed me from the waist up. I had stopped breathing. I’ve never really understood the actions of the anaesthetist that day. She was clearly worried and trying to cover her tracks. 
Having a traumatic birth is awful. For weeks after Amara was born I kept thinking my baby was still inside me. This wasn’t my baby. 
Every single time I hear about someone’s birth I have this little pain about the fact I was asleep. Don’t get me started on when people call a C-section an easy way out... like honestly don’t get me started that’s a whole other 3 posts 😂. This is all a small snippet of my birth story and I will go into preeclampsia, post traumatic birth feelings and how it affected me in my other pregnancy’s but it’s a lot all at once 😂🤦🏼‍♀️..

TLDR - My #2 birth story. Wanted to experience labour and the whole shebang. And so I did. 
For mummies considering #VBAC~
6 June: Been waking up by tummy pains throughout the night but I dismissed them. Had some pinkish discharge at 5am and @sanyuhesselink got concerned. At 12pm I had more brownish discharge while at the library, but no mucus plug so I wasn't worried. Felt more tired than usual. 
7 June: Had a scheduled gynae check. At the appt I told him I started having tummy aches but not sure if they were contractions. He did a cervical check and said I am barely half a cm dilated, baby is still high up so he isn't expecting anything to happen within the week (but it's unpredictable and he may be wrong). He asked if we wanted to do a CTG and so we did. They were irregular contractions of about 2 every 30 mins. We left for lunch+bbt, and I went home to watch Netflix while rolling on the gym ball, hoping to get baby's head engaged/ relieve the pain. The pain grew closer and more painful. I was moaning while moving around the house. 😂

By dinnertime, I felt like I was going to have diarrhoea so I keep going to the toilet. 😅 Told my husband I'm in pain, so I tried to sleep early at 10pm. Yelled and sent him to buy a hot thermal bag to help me relieve the pain. Can't sleep at 11pm. I texted groups and @liwernn for advice. Checked my phone every time it hurts, was 7mins apart. It was difficult. I had to get up and started throwing stuff in the hospital bag. I was wincing, and asked if we can go/should go? At midnight he called our gynae. He said I could go to the hospital to check. I'm not sure how dilated I was and didn't want a wasted trip. We set a deadline. If I cannot endure past 3am, wake him up and we'll head to the hospital. I woke up every 5 mins and felt miserable. 
Got a cab, moaning at every wave of contractions. Driver was worried so he drove fast. Admitted at 3.48am.

June 15, 2019 // DJ's Birth Story, Part 2.
.
[Continue 2/4] Spoiler alert: Second delivery does NOT come earlier, quicker, or easier. My first came at 41 weeks, this one came at 40+6. Although I labored naturally for 9.5 hours both times, my first kept its intensity all the way through, while I took a freaking cat nap at 5 cm dilation with this one. It was 6 am, and I was exhausted. I had just fallen asleep when my water broke at 1 am. By 8:30 am, I was still just 6 cm and there were talks of using pitocin if I am not 8 cm by 10 am. They suspected baby was positioned to one side as labor was progressing inconsistently with back to back contractions then nothing for 5 minutes. I felt defeated and now even more exhausted. We decided a change in scenery to get things going so I hobbled into the shower. My body shook with each contraction. How was I still at 6? I could barely stand! They continued to monitor the baby's heart rate and found dips during contractions. The warm water beat down my back as I braced each wave of contraction across my body. My legs weak and the lower half of my body felt like it was splitting in two. But just like the first time, my husband stayed right by my side the entire time and continued the hypnobirthing script to get me through the next wave....

The Fresh 48 session is the chance to capture all of those first hours after your baby is born. Those moments that will soon be forgotten. Hours after having just gave birth you’ll often feel tired or a mess, but the sensation of love comes flowing from inside the moment you pick up your brand new bundle of joy. And you realize that is what makes you glow from the outside and what ultimately shows in your pictures..
