Urgh I was induced and she didn’t come until SIX DAYS later, I just laid in bed being induced over and over it was horrible, she definitely wasn’t ready!
By the time she came I was so exhausted I could barely push, I had to be cut! I lost so much blood I needed two blood transfusions in the days following, my baby was in the neonatal unit for 2 days so I could barely see her, makes me well up just thinking about that time, she was fine though and discharged after, but I wasn’t for a week, it was shit but she stayed with me obviously.
I still feel like it’s messed my body up, I can’t clot blood properly and my period lasts one day but it’s like the exorcism, I won’t even go into that
When I was finally allowed home I sat in the car park with my baby and partner in the car and just sobbed my heart out with relief, I honestly thought I was dying at one point! My boyfriend couldn’t drive because he was crying too at me crying haha.
Took me 8 days to poop after
but I barely ate, the nurse gave me suppositories to take home with me
I never used them I was (shit) scared.
just came naturally but I’ll never forget the after pain, almost worse than labour, I bought an inflatable ring/donut to sit on cause I couldnt sit on my arse for ages!
I was certain I’d never go through it again, we are now trying for baby no 2!
