My C-section

So.... I have been on this board for 9 months lurking a bit and just wanted to post who my c-section went.

I was scheduled to have a c-section on 9/8/8 at am... Well baby didn't want to wait. At midnight 9/8/8 My water broke, no contractions, no sign at all! Yup, this happened. Anyway, got to the hospital at 12:15 with water broken and now contractions have started and another odd labor symptom Tremors (shaking without being able to control it, feels like your cold and can't stop shaking). So the docs got me in quick because of the need for a c/s I was in the OR with this massive shaking stuff and trying to get a spinal at the same time, Oh, what fun......not! everything went really quick and being my second time around I knew pretty much what was going on. My son was born at 2:26 Monday. Well they take baby to nursery and the anesthesiologist was like "I'll give your demorall it should help you relax and tap a nap" no no it did not and the shaking continued till the put me in a hospital room and bring my baby in and by magic once they hand me the baby shaking stops. strange but kind of neat. So I got to come home on Wednesday and my drug of choice liquid baby Motrin, everyone is like "oh, my god didn't they give you a narcotic." no because I told them I wouldn't take it and that I am breast feeding. everyone thinks im crazy but so far so good. I write more later.
