    Matthew Jude 'Matty Meatball' has arrived!

    Advertisements
    I figured I'd post Meatballs birth story, and a few pictures.


    Matthew Jude was born on July 25th, at 10:37 pm. He weighed 8lbs 3oz and was 21 inches long. He is an absolute LOVE!
    My labor was rough, without a doubt. I had been having spontaneous contractions all day on Tuesday (7/24) and then at 11:30pm my water broke, and contractions began very quickly following. I didn't even have my hospital bags packed thinking I had time. I got to the hospital around 12:15 am, and was obviously admitted. Contractions were about every two minutes apart at that point, and I was only 2 cm dilated.I received a pain medicine via IV (forget what its called) but it only lasted an hour. I could barely sleep with it. I eventually got my epidural (I think it was about 8am) and things slowed down, so I started pitocin. I labored all day (back labor), and had to have my epidural 'topped off' about 5 times. Turns out, Meatball was sunny side up, and stuck in my pelvis. They realized this after I had been in labor for almost 24 hours, and pushed for two without any progress.
    At that point, I was in excruciating pain, even with the epidural. The pressure from meatballs position was absolutely killing my hips. I couldn't move, and felt everything.
    The doctors eventually came in and gave me options.. I actually asked for a csection before they even put it on the table. (that was about 830pm) It took them TWO HOURS to get me into the csection room. I was furious (obviously because I was in pain and exhausted). I eventually went in around 10 pm, after having a breakdown in front of my doctor and nurses. (I cried my eyes out- I think because of nerves/exhaustion).
    Anyways,my c-section went perfect! Matthew was definitely stuck, and it caused a bit of trouble for the doctor. Poor guy was born with bruises all over his face and head.
    The next day, I was up and moving around without any problems. I left the hospital early (saturday) because I was sick of sitting around, and sunday I went for a mile walk. My recovery has been great! (except I caught a stomach bug that landed me back in the hospital yesterday.)
    I personally will opt for a c-section every time now.

    And... pictures to follow!



    This is me about 3 hrs after arriving at the hospital. I'm a hot mess!
