OK...

Breathing...

Not passing out...

My water broke... possibly today, but it's also likely I've been walking around with ruptured membranes for about a week... so I'm on a time clock now. By about 9 a.m. tomorrow, Sarina must be out of my body...

AAAAAAAAAAAAACK!!!!!!!!!!!

OK, dudes, I'm outta here. I have to go to the hospital and figure out if I'm letting them induce me with evil stuff or go for a C-section. Please think positive things for us! This is so surreal.

Talk to you in a few days.

XOXOX,
me

i forgot if the baby's a boy or girl, but as ive told you in countless PMs now, Bravo is a fairly gender neutral name.

Forget TIO... This is TMI.

Get thee hither woman, and hie unto the midwife, for unto you a blob of flesh and goop shalt be born this night, and ye shalt wrap him in swaddling Baby Gap clothes and lay him in a crib with safety features and a baby monitor, and ye shalt call him Deek, for it is a good and godly name, and he shalt be a source of consternation and vexation unto all time to thee.

When my mom was carrying me, she was actually carrying twins. I was long prepared to come out, and my twin bro had to get out by suction six minutes later, except they had accidentally got him by the head. The newborn pictures show him with a big red forehead.

I was going to say something about how lucky you are that you aren't having twins, but I think it's inappropriate.

Hope everything goes smoothly. Hope she's a lot like her mother.

Thursday night labor in early March. No Monday night football, no good re-runs. Basketball March Madness hasn't yet begun, no good reruns on TV unless you like Gomer Pyle USMC.

What is Anthony going to do?
You need to plan better in the future.

And, uh, why exactly is Jenna shaving a baby???

It's an ancient mystical tradition.

A clean-shaven baby brings a good harvest or an extra-large veggie pizza in less than 30 minutes to your door. Can't remember which.



Jenna-

Great good fortune to you and your family. All my so-happy-for-you-all vibes are going straight to wherever you are.

Happy Birthday Sarina!

No news yet.

I bet Jenna's feeling us all standing right behind Anthony, peering over his shoulders.

I won't be surprised if we don't hear for a bit. My guess -- and it's only a guess -- is that Anthony will call Mac when he has something to tell us and a few free moments in which to call.

Hee hee! My husband was the best man after. My doctor wasn't around until it was time to push, but I'd have loved to kick the nurse that was there for the delivery in the face. Was she ever rude!

And for what it's worth, Rich, when my labor wasn't progressing very fast at the beginning, I made my husband go home so he could get some decent sleep. His mother refused to go anywhere, so I was never completely alone, but after the epidural, what I wouldn't have given for a book to read.

My poor husband was pitiful. When he was in the Navy, he worked in a clinic and helped out with many, many different kinds of medical cases, and even helped deliver a baby. He thought he'd be ready for anything when I got pregnant. Nope, he sat in the corner with his head in his hands rocking because he thought he was going to get sick or pass out. If we ever have another one, he knows what he's got to do.

My mom passed out when my daughter was born. My husband couldn't stand the thought of seeing them stick a needle in my back when I got the epidural, so he left the room and my mom stayed with me. After it was all over with, she went into the hallway and slid down the wall. Luckily, I wasn't anywhere near ready to deliver, so they could see about her, too. LOL. She says she didn't pass out, but everyone else said her eyes rolled back in her head.

If only Jenna had bothered to invest in voice recognition software she could have given us a full running commentary of her labour. She just doesn't care enough, that woman.

My beloved husband not only took care of all of us as well as working full time when I had to have bedrest for six months for my last pregnancy, he also watched most of my caesarian and didn't even falter. He's so tough. And he changes nappies. And cooks dinner.

He doesn't wash up, though, or hang clothes up, or throw things away. So he's not quite perfect.

Oh my goodness, I just discovered this thread and hurriedly skimmed the whole thing, expecting resolution by the end of it. Not to be. :(

Jenna - My water broke long before I went into labor with both my kids, so I understand when there's no hurry at all to get to the hospital. With my second, we had a 2.5 hour drive from my house to where my doctor was located. So, I worked all day, cooked dinner for my parents who were arriving to visit *before* the baby arrrived, then left them to do the dishes and drove up to meet the doctor.

Guys: Usually, they give you 24 hours after you get to the hospital, because of the risk of infections introduced by the hospital staff. It's a long slow process, this giving birth, especially if your oxtocyn receptors aren't active and they decide to induce labor.

Jenna, I hope you're too busy working at having this baby to be panicking about it. Slow labors are way more comfortable than fast labors, so I hope they're making you as comfortable as possible. You don't need us rushing you. So, my wish is, may it all come to pass as it was meant to be in its own time.

(But I'll be checking back frequently for news!)

My daughter looked at me within a minute of being born.

Scarred the poor kid for life. ;)

Actually, it was the single most incredible moment of my life. She was born, the nurse put this solution in her eyes to clear out the gunk, then handed her to me, and she blinked a couple of times then locked onto me. That's when I nearly passed out, it was so amazing.

SC Harrison
03-02-2007, 11:30 PM
I wasn't beaten up by my ex-wife in the delivery room, but when my daughter was born, I was told by the doc if I passed out I'd be the last one they'd attend to.

Check out this conversation between me and a devious doctor:

"Are you going to be okay with this, Sarge?"

"No problem, doc. I just don't want to see the stuff that comes afterwards, if you don't mind."

"Gotcha."

A few minutes later...

"Is this what you're talking about?" He asks as he shoves the pan within three inches of my face.

Good Lord. On a scale of one to nasty, that was about 9.3. It kinda looked like a Portugese man-o-war, and I really thought he was actually going to throw it on me for a second or two. Then I sat down on the floor.

I guess messing with me didn't fall under the "Above all, do no harm" thingie. :(

Babies can hold onto anything, parental fingers included, when first born. So tightly, in fact, that they can support their own weight. Although they lose this ability within the first few days of life, I believe.

Ding! Ding! Ding! (http://www.marchofdimes.com/professionals/681_4536.asp) You are correct. And your question? (If you want to play.) I also found an abstract to a journal article that indicated they are finding more substances in amniotic fluid than just fetal urine, too.

Right, although according to www.childbirth.org (http://www.childbirth.org), there are two circumstances under which a woman would not be able to have a VBAC (vaginal birth after Caesarean): if the incision for the C-section was vertical rather than horizontal, or if the woman's pelvis can't accomodate a vaginal birth.

That baby here yet?

My water broke first when I had my son. The doc said 'to the hospital!' and fourteen hours later (and an epidural and some EVVVVIILLL pitocin) I had the little man.

So what's the holdup?

I need to get my BIC off the chair, down to the freezer, grab the bottle of schnapps, and have a shot. Or two.

I'll have a lemon-tini, sir. Top shelf, if you please.

Are we in the waiting room still? I hate waiting rooms. Some doofus always beats me to the crossword puzzles.

Are we aunts and uncles yet?

All we have in the house is beer. This is taking so long I figure it's an epidural, which slows things down considerably. Hopefully she got some sleep. I was in labour for a good 30 hours with my first.

My water broke with my second baby, and in spite of that it looked like it was gonna be a long haul like my first, but things picked up nicely and he was born within 14 hours.

I guess I'd be Auntie Stormie. Or Stormie Auntie, however my mood is that day.

Hmmm, Jenna should be more considerate. She should know how we're suffering. I, for one, will be giving her a good piece of my mind when this is all over.

This is more intense than waiting for my own kids to be born...

Not that I was ever in labor, but still.

Come on, Jenna, it only took me 8 hours to have my son. And I had an epidural and everything (including pitocin). What the heck is taking so long?! My feet are starting to ache from pacing...

Ha! Wait 'til Sarina goes out on her first date. And Jenna and Anthony are sitting up waiting for her.

Yup, then they'll know what it's been like for us. Oh yeah.

this has to be the largest group of people pacing up and down outside the delivery room waiting for news, there has ever been.

I'm waiting so i can hand out the cigars.

We're almost alike on this, Kristie. 8 hours to have my first child. I did have the pitocin because the contractions weren't coming along the way they should have. But no epidural. No pain medicines. I felt everything!

I hope Jenna is okay.

We're writers right? Let's pass the time writing. Everyone get creative and write something for Baby Sarina --today, this first hour this first minute that you were born...in this world...

Sarina, we waited here in the cyberworld for you to arrive in the real one. We have never met your mother but we know her to be lovely and as such, we are anxious for her and for you.

We wait for you, with less patience than we have for responses from editors to our submissions.

Happy First Day, be it March 2 or March 3rd. Be good to your Mom.

Maybe we need some good ol' pagan and/or wiccan magic. Or some strange Chinese concoction that miraculously speeds up the process and makes Sarina be born as a warrior princess.

I must be reading too much fantasy. Come on, Sarina. We got food for you! And books! And toys! And things/people to hit! You know you want it all. Please? Pretty please? For Jenna?

I stopped checking in to get some work done today (had a huge seven page section to do today), went home, then went to visit my Granny, got my daughter to bed and still no news? Gosh, this waiting is hard.

I'll be going through it again on Tuesday when my future sister-in-law is going in to be induced.

Ooooh, Jenna--we're still waiting! Got here to the waiting room late, but still. That's what I get for being banned by cocker spaniels.

Good luck and prayers and warm thoughts to you and your family's way.
