#ShineBabyGo master post! 

Here we go!!

#ShineBabyGo Update 1: 

Alright I’m all hooked up, my nurse is awesome and fun :)

Baby looks good, I’m good, drinking some water while we wait for my covid test to come back. I’ll get my IV once the hydration hits and I can take my mask off once my covid test comes back negative :D

probably will be looking at a mid morning delivery if it goes similarly to last time, as it goes faster with each successive birth.

#ShineBabyGo Update 2: 

Trying to place my IV was a trip lmao

They stuck me 3 different times, 2 in the forearm that hit valves and are gonna bruise and 1 in the wrist which hit bone owwwww

3 different RN’s, apparently my veins are Weird today

Last nurse tried and failed in my bicep area, then got me in the side of my tight forearm so I can still move around thank gooood

All of this out of respect for my sensory issues, I begged them to avoid my elbows and hands 😭 bless them all

#ShineBabyGo Update 3: 

👀

That’s a contraction

Yay!

...ow

#ShineBabyGo Update 4: 

Hitting a bad funk of disabled body vs labor

Sitting up for too long my coccyx and lumbar hurt real bad but laying fully down sucks for baby so now I’m at a like half lying position and my upper back/shoulder blade area/neck hurt

bleeeeeh trying to hold out for the epidural until I actually need it

#ShineBabyGo Update 5: 

Got a wedge for my back, Mom is here and being delightful thank god and bestie is on his way

Second dose of cytotec came at 11:30, it’s 1:10 now and I’m contracting regularly and with some force now oof but I’m handling it 😩

I’ll get pitocin when my cervix is nice and ~*soft*~

#ShineBabyGo Update 6: 

YEEEEHAW got my epidural

It was a shitshow and I about lost my damn mind freakin out but we got it placed god bless my nurse

#ShineBabyGo no update just a quip 

It’s a very strange thing to be high as fuck but only from the ass down

#ShineBabyGo Update 7: Good Morning! 

I am progressing gloriously and we’re looking at anywhere from a lunchtime baby to an early bird special dinner type baby :) it’s going much smoother than the first time, which was already pretty smooth!

#ShineBabyGo Update 8: IMMINENT CHILD 

OOP I bore down some and now they’re IN THE CANAL and we are prepping the room for active delivery!!!!!

Feeling good, feelin strong!

Looking at a baby in the next hour or two max!

#ShineBabyGo Update 4:

#ShineBabyGo Update 4: 

@hammerhead I took birthing classes then had to have a c-section so it's like I studied for a test I never got to take anywayyy

#ShineBabyGo Update 4: 

@Sorl squatting is great for laboring for many im just especially broken lmaooo

#ShineBabyGo Update 4:
