Hi! I came over from Motherhood Uncensored. I just wanted to say that the birth story for my son was remarkably similar to yours. Thankfully, I didn't have the BP problems you had. It must have been very scary for your family.

I was induced about a week after my due date and had a C-Sec after labor stalled at about 9 cm. He also got stuck during the C-Section. There were people climbing up on top of the table and on top of me trying to help. My epidural had slipped by that point so most of the surgery was quite painful, and I was wiggling my feet by the time it was over.

My doctor had estimated my son would weigh 8+ lbs, but he ended up just a 1/2 ounce shy of 11 lbs. No wonder he wouldn't fit! I'm currently pregnant with my 2nd and really hope this one is smaller.

I also had trouble with depressed respiration due to the pain meds. It took a couple of days for anyone to tell me why I couldn't breathe though. It's a good thing you found out early. Not sleeping because you can't breathe is horrible.

I enjoyed reading your birth story! Thanks for sharing.
