Hi I want to introduce myself! I'm Susanna and this is our journey so far. I went into labor on Monday May 15 and was already dilated to a three before I realized something was wrong and went to the hospital. I was admitted and the next morning I was already to a 6cm. I was given an epidural and we prepared thinking baby was coming within hours. By Wednesday I'd dilated to 8cm but still was just laboring. My obgyn gave me everything to stop labor and it still kept progressing. We decided to just let my body choose what to do and keep monitoring baby. Thursday I went down to only a few contraction every hour and wasn't progressing at all. I had the epidural for 2 days before they removed it and started giving iv pain meds. I still kept laboring until Tuesday night where transitioned into active labor. I finally was given another epidural after midnight and was able to sleep for a few hours. Wednesday morning came and around 8:00 my ob checked me and I was to 9 1/2 cm. And my water still had not broken on its own. Within 25 minutes I had given birth to my baby girl. She was 4 pounds and 10 ounces Born at 32 weeks. She's in nicu and doing good. She's breathing on her own and starting feeding. I'm here for support as this is all so new to me and I really don't know how to handle it all

@Lina Benítez 🇨🇴🇮🇳🇦🇺 thank you ❤️

Keep reminding yourself this WILL pass, you will get home with LO. This is a tiny part of your life with baby and before you know it you'll be sick of picking up blocks and covered in baby food. Easier said than done but try to take breaks, the mum guilt is real but you'll want to be in a good place mentally and physically when everyone is home.
