Happy Birthday Emma!! Sorry you didn’t have the best experience… I have heard so many “first time mom” horror stories… I’m sorry you didn’t get the natural birth you had planned for. My sister is in the process of scheduling her C-section for the end of this month. Due to medical issues from the vaginal birth of her daughter, she can no longer have vaginal deliveries. It was really hard for her at first, and I didn’t think she would get pregnant again. She would get *sick* just thinking about ANY ONE’s labor… but needless to say, she is now due at the end of this month and preparing for the C-section… at least she has that time to prepare. I don’t know the story of your son but I hope it was a more pleasurable experience! Melody August 6, 2007 at 6:14 pm (10 years ago) I loved reading Emma’s story. So sorry to hear things didn’t go as planned. You are stronger than I am, I can’t even think about doing the natural thing! I admire you.

Julie August 8, 2007 at 7:07 am (10 years ago) Happy Birthday, Emma! Glad you got here safe 4 years ago! My first’s birth didn’t go as planned, either. I did natural 14 hours, and finally got the walking epidural. Whole thing was a bad experience. Second, got to do natural. “Loved” it, even though I yelled, “Get it out of me!” at the end! kerflop August 12, 2007 at 8:59 am (10 years ago) Oh this made me cry a little. Happy birthday Emma! I wish we lived nearby so we could have come to the party.
