emergency cesarean after 17 hours of labour and 3 hours pushing! on 31/01/09

by Poppy
(Cornwall, England)

My waters broke at 8am my partner was not home and struggled to get hold of him by the time he came home at 9am my contractions kicked in by 10am they were every 3 minutes! we made the mad 45min dash to the hospital by which time my contractions totally stopped!

The decision was made to give me a hormone drip, at 9pm i was fully dilated.

After 3 hours of pushing and my son not coming down the decision was made to have an emergency c section! i was petrified as i never expected this and was totally unprepared!

my son was delivered at 12.45am i was so knackered and overwhelmed by the experience i struggled to take it all in!

i found the first week - 2 weeks extremely painful and my scar began to re - open, even after following the strict giudelines about lifting, getting out of bed etc.

It has now been just over 5 weeks since my cesarean and the scar is still not healed in places!

My best advice is to be as prepared as possible mentally and physically, even if u do not expecta cesarean!

also be as active as possible i found if i even had one lazy day i could definately feel my scar was tighter!

I would also say whilst not totally excluding the guidlines, try to do things when you feel your body is ready and in the way tht feels comfortable to you!
