Just wanted to share my birth story with you guys!
The birth of my son didn’t go as planned.
At 35 weeks of pregnancy I found out I had gestational hypertension (high blood pressure).
I had constant high blood pressure readings every time I went to the doctor.
At 37 weeks 6 days, my doctor thought it was best to induce me because my blood pressure was extremely high.
You can watch my story by clicking the link above but essentially, I had to have an emergency c-section because baby King was in distress with every contraction I would have.
My experience with having a c-section was filled with a lot of discovery because I truly didn’t know what to expect. I assumed I was going to have a vaginal birth and I didn’t do any research on cesarean births.
A few things I experienced with my c-section:
- an epidural (that was not painful)
- a catheter (also not painful)
- tugging and pulling during the c-section
- nauseous after procedure
Overall, I wouldn’t trade my birth story for anything! Watch the video to see all the juicy details! It’s a good story! I may write more later but right now, I’m going to go cuddle with King!
