They replaced the epidural catheter in my back and my pain did not decrease very much. They gave me fentanyl and it made me very dopey and then I passed out? Then the baby's heartrate dropped rather suddenly and would not go back up. They did a quick ultrasound right there in the OR and realized my placenta was toast and I was bleeding to death.
So I just had an emergency c-section that was done in under 5 minutes flat.
He's in the NICU overnight and I'm in recovery.
We almost died---both of us, but we didn't. We are alive because we happened to be at the hospital getting induced.
This is terrible and awful but really right now I feel like I have horseshoes up my ass.
I have a live baby. He didn't die. And neither did I.
