After being induced Tuesday night, and laboring all day Wednesday (think: broke my water and went through two epidurals), we began pushing on Thursday morning (after waiting an hour and a half for the doctor to arrive). We pushed for three hours and twenty minutes with pretty much zero progress, before they decided we needed to make sure Harper arrived safely and took us for a c-section.
Even though there were SO many things that went differently than my "plan" and there were so many people who made me really angry with their decisions (doctors, mainly), I wouldn't change anything about it. Harper is amazing and is SO worth 36 hours of labor and not eating any food for over a day. Isn't it amazing how you forget all of that the second you see your baby's face?
Now, if time will just slow down so I can soak up all of these newborn baby snuggles! (Make sure you're following me on snapchat (@emilycarnes) to see all of the cuteness overload).
