Don't you just love remembering the little things about the pregnancy and birth
This time 11 years ago I was still bedridden after my CS. They tried to get me up, but I nearly collapsed. They later realised I'd lost more blood than was recorded and my haemoglobin levels were down to 77

Haha even though I wrote what Chunkydunks had written, it didn't click in my head that it was your DS's birthday. Happy birthday to him!

Considering the complications I had, it went as well as could be expected. The staff were fantastic though we were all a little confused as to why the Dr had noted normal blood loss when it was clearly more than that.
I'd been in pre-labour for 3 weeks when I was finally induced. They put one lot of gel on at about 7pm on the 4th and said "This won't take, we'll put another lot on in the morning". By 10pm, I was in the labour ward I can't even remember what time my waters broke but there was meconium staining. I was then told to stay in the bed while they monitored me and DS. His heart rate started dropping to 70 with every contraction and as soon as I was lucid enough to make sense of it all I told them I wanted the CS (the gas made me as high as a kite). The OBGYN come in and I was wheeled down to theatre. They tried to do an epidural but I was a size 18, carrying a 9lb baby and in active labour so getting a gap in my spine big enough for the thing was difficult to say the least. They had to do a general. At 8:11am DS come out blue and the cord around his neck, which explained why he never fully engaged and why his heart rate was dropping. Thankfully he improved very quickly with his second Apgar being 9.
Had the cord not been around his neck, there is a big chance I would have been able to have him naturally and possibly sooner.

Far out chunkydunks talk about a scary ordeal. You poor thing! Mothers instincts must of been in full flight that night when you asked for a c/s. Did you find it strange waking up and being a mum?
I was so close to having a GA with DD4, it was my biggest fear. The Anaesthetists stuffed up big time and right when they were moving to put me to sleep, he finally got it on his last attempt.

That's a crazy birth story Chunky!
So I have a very rough plan in my head that I might be able to schedule my FET for around Aug, or maybe Sept if my parents aren't ready to put me and DS up earlier than that. What sucks is that this FET will most likely be our only shot at TTC #2 for potentially a very long time, due to the current job climate in DH's industry. So if it's a BFN (extremely likely), it's going to be really tough to deal with.

I still get teary when I see shows that have bub put straight up onto mum's chest because it's something I didn't get to experience. Ah well, he's here and healthy and that's what counts to me.
