It was amazing. It was traumatic. It was PAINFUL! And it was worth it. What a cool story this turned in to! ♥️
Finally induced at 41 weeks and even though I kept telling everyone I knew he was so big just from how he felt in me and the ultrasounds but everyone kept telling me “oh they can be off by up to two pounds I’m sure he’s a fine size for birthing lol silly people. After 16 of the most painful hours of my existence, literally thinking I would die, I finally caved and went against my own birth plan and told my doc to get me in to a csec. There was something definitely wrong trying to birth him vaginally. That pain was NOT ok and felt like I was breaking the bottom half of my body off. I couldn’t take it any more! So they get me in and everyone in the room just couldn’t believe their eyes 🤣 not only was he 10lb3oz, 22.5in long, but he actually had a “true knot” in his cord! My doctor was so complimentary and proud of me for coming to the csec decision because not only would he have destroyed me internally and externally and his most likely shoulder damage if we tried to pass him vaginally, but she said it was a true blessing because of how much of a risk having a knot in the cord would have been and it cutting off oxygen while trying to birth him which could have put his life at risk! I’m so thankful for all the pain and change of plans and choices these last couple days were. I wouldn’t change a thing. He’s PERFECT!
