My daughter is now 1 year old. I was induced a week early because I was constantly dizzy and they didn’t know why. So I started the induction on a Thursday with a gel on my cervix and my labor mildly started that evening. I was admitted Friday morning and they broke my water at 11:00am and started pitocin. I ended up having her at 4:45 Saturday morning via c-section because I was unprogresing with the dialation. I had no idea this could happen. I made it a little past 9cm , and then the pressure from her head on it for so long caused swelling and I went back to 7 cm. I was fighting the push. I ended up having the c-section. I was so scared for that but it was easier than I expected. Until afterwards. It was hard to heal from and really painful. But I had no complications. I am proud of myself for everything I went through and we are now ttc #2. Everything is worth it in the end! I love my daughter and now I have this scar to show for what I went through. Although some days I dispise it and wish it were gone I have to except that it is a part of me forever… This site has helped me to realize that. And I also have a stretched hole above my belly button from a belly ring… another thing I wish would dissappear but never will. As much as I hate it, my daughter is worth it all.
