2022.01.26 14:52 atreegrowsinupstate Graduation 41+3: Hopes for natural, unmedicated labor turned to Emergency C-Section (True Knot/Traumatic/Overall a positive ending)
It's taken me a lot longer than I hoped to share this story as this sub was such an incredible resource for me throughout pregnancy and I loved reading others Graduation stories, but it took some time for me to work through what happened, so here we are almost 4 weeks later.
On December 30th at 5:30am after waiting 24+ hours to hear from my hospital that they had an opening for an induction (I was 10 days late at this point) my water spontaneously broke when I shifted in bed.
(1st takeaway - after trying literally everything to induce labor for 2 weeks, I've concluded nothing actually works! Your body/baby decides!)
It was less of a "popping" noise and more of a "thump" followed by a small gush of water. It was pretty easy to tell when I started walking around that this was definitely my waters. Woke my husband and called the clinic line for active labor because 1. My water had broken 2. I was 10 days late and supposed to have been induced the day prior and 3. I was GBS+
Waiting on a call back, I started to feel crampy almost immediately and within 30 minutes I started to get my first contractions. I had zero contractions up until this point and very few cases of Braxton Hicks (like I could count them all on one hand). The hospital called back and I was ecstatic to learn it was my favorite OB at my practice working that day and he told me "no rush, but come on in" and there'd be a bed ready.
Contractions picked up on the way to the hospital and as I checked in. They were getting painful (but not unbearable) by the time we got to our room and settled in. The timing of the contractions was somewhat sporadic, but the intensity was definitely increasing. When the doctor checked me around 8am I was 4cm.
This is where I want to pause and explain my mentality/birth plan. I had never been fearful of labor. I am surrounded by women in my immediate family who had extremely positive, rewarding labors. Women who needed no medication and assured me it was doable. My husband and I took a childbirth, pain management, and breastfeeding classes. I went into labor with affirmations, crystals, massage oil, heating pad, and visual aids to remind me of positions and breathing. I was positive and excited, and hearing I was 4cm despite the contractions getting painful felt promising. At this point - I believed I could do it.
After getting checked, things picked up rapidly. The pain was admittedly...bad. I was having back labor that radiated to my front like I was being squeezed with a vice. I labored in the tub for an hour and that was one of the best memories of my labor. My husband sitting beside me talking me through each painful contraction and us imagining our baby. When I had to get out of the tub because they wanted to check baby with a fetal monitor, the contractions started to become unbearable. I could not find a good position and the window of "reprieve" I was promised in my childbirth classes was much smaller than both my husband or I had understood so I requested to be checked again (around 11am).
It was at this check when I learned I was only 6cm that the nurse/OB noticed the fetal heart rate was dropping substantially with each of my contractions. The OB said the words "a potential cord issue" and this is now forever seared into my memory. They said they'd watch it and asked me if I wanted the epidural. The disappointment over only being 6cm after 3 hours and the contractions not letting up (I truly have never felt a pain comparable to contractions) and me getting very narrow windows to recover (more on this later) + I did quick (ignorant) math and if it took 3 hours to get 2 cms, I had 6 more hours to go of this pain (or worse). No positions or breathing or affirmations were helping so...I requested the epidural.
By the time I had enough fluids and the anesthesiologist arrived, I had no regrets about requesting that epidural. I was truly miserable. Once it was administered - they checked me again and I was 7cm. I had about a one hour reprieve where the epidural worked, however...the fetal heart rate issues were getting worse. In that hour they moved me from one side lying position to another to on all fours to try and regulate baby's heartbeat. It was then that my husband and I were starting to get nervous, and after that one hour break, the epidural wore off...completely.
The level of pain I felt following the epidural not working is truly indescribable. I was on all fours, dry-heaving, with stacked contractions, one on top of the other, with absolutely no break in between. I don't know how anyone on earth can calmly labor through that pain. It reached a point where both I and the baby were so distressed as the anesthesiologist returned to fix the epidural, they administered a drug to SLOW DOWN my contractions because they were literally coming too fast and too frequently for how dilated I was.
(This gave me a bit of validation in the level of pain I was experiencing...)
By the time the epidural was working again (after 2pm), they did another check and I was almost 10cm. The doctor came in, gave me a strange, reassuring smile and said "We're going to try pushing soon. Sometimes baby can work itself out when we start to push."
These words still haunt me. Not "almost time to push!" or "you'll meet your baby soon!" but we're going to try.
I started pushing just before 3pm with a doctor and FOUR nurses in the room (this should have been a red flag to me more than it was). Between each push, every set of eyes was on the fetal monitor, and it was harrowingly quiet. I held my husband's hand and in-between each push touched a Tiger's Eye crystal for strength and protection. I put every ounce of my energy into pushing and after 30-40 minutes, the doctor (who I trust and truly couldn't imagine having had anyone else) said, "I am going to be real with you, okay. Your baby is not moving. You are pushing perfectly and there is zero descent or progress. And normally - that would be okay at this point. We could push for 4 hours. But this," and he pointed at the screen, "is very concerning to me. This makes me certain we have an umbilical cord issue. These heart rate drops are why I am going to advise a c-section now."
I looked at my husband and together we made the hardest decision of our life and agreed.
It gets blurry here as we agreed and the room sprang to life. They upped my epidural medications substantially, I signed waivers agreeing to major surgery and complications and the loss of my life and tons of drugs, my husband was fitted with PPE out of the corner of my eye, and they wheeled me off to the OR alone (in case they needed to put me under, my husband had to wait). I was honestly catatonic as I entered the OR. I felt so numb. More drugs were administered and in the blinding light and anxiety of the moment, I threw up multiple times (which they reassured me was normal).
They prepped. The nurses and the anesetheologist kept trying to ask me questions to distract me until my husband was allowed in (or to ensure I was OK, hard to say). I made a comment about how much I loved the TV show Grey's Anatomy and the entire room laughed, and then quite suddenly I found myself just reciting a mantra over and over aloud: "I can do hard things. I can do hard things. I can do hard things."
Finally, after what felt like a lifetime later, but my husband promises me was only 45 minutes, they allowed him in. Within minutes of him entering the room and coming to sit by my side, they pulled out our baby boy and as I heard our baby's cries, I heard one other comment:
"Look at that knot."
Our 8lb 9oz baby boy had a true knot in his umbilical cord.
The chance of this complication is about 1% but risk of stillbirth or brain damage if you have a vaginal delivery goes up significantly. Had they found the knot prior to labor (rarely they do), I would have had a planned c-section all along.
I didn't know any of that about a "true knot" though in my bleary drug-induced state and despite being so happy to see him, begged my husband not to share photos with anyone because I was embarrassed we had a c-section. I didn't get the skin-to-skin or immediate breastfeeding I had hoped for (or a natural or vaginal delivery at all) so as they closed me up - I felt very off. I watched my husband hold him and I felt detached from the moment, like I was watching someone else's baby.
But as my doctor and the other surgeon wrapped up, my OB leaned over the paper and told me things went great and said firmly (because I’m now certain he overheard me telling my husband not to share pictures) that I/we had made the best choice for our baby, and to not feel bad about it in anyway. Besides the moment I saw my baby, this was the only other point I cried.
In the hours, days, and weeks that followed I've learned to let go of some of the shame I feel. To allow myself to mourn the birth I did not get, and to let myself be angry about the mentality (I was told by family, midwives, and many others) that "if you don't go into birth fearful - you can have a perfect, natural birth."
Sometimes not being scared isn't enough. Prepping and planning doesn't mean a smooth birth. Things happen. Complications arise. Birth can still be beautiful, even when it doesn't look anything like what you hoped for. After all, it led to the sweet baby snoozing away on my chest as I share this story.

2022.01.26 14:52 mustachepc My girfriend has depression and I am getting tired of it
Hey reddit, So I (27M) have been dating my girlfriend (27F) for a year now. Everything was great at first but she has been dealing with depression for most of the last decade and in the last 6 months she took a step back and i just dont know what to do anymore.
Every month she takes at least one week of sick leave from work (its a public company so no one really cares) and just stays home all day sleeping and crying. She went o the psycologist once but every week finds an excuse to reeschedule the metting. To top it all, shes becoming an alcoholic drinking at least 2 botles of wine everyday.
I just dont know what else to do and im really tired of her. Between all the "whining" during the day, drinking herself to sleep every night and not looking for help, i dont even know if I love her anymore. Not sure what kind of advice Im seeking, maybe i just really needed to take it out of my chest
TLDR: girlfriend is depressed and alcoholic and i just dont know what else to do

2022.01.26 14:52 Spiderman885 Trying to find a Specific Theory Video
Hopefully this is the right spot and someone can help me with this. About 4-5 years ago I remember watching a star wars youtube video that did a deep dive on why the Jedi had to be wiped out in order to bring balance to the force. Unfortunately, their are about 1000 videos on this topic but the one thing that stood out to me was the deep dive into all the battles through out the original series and how in almost all the conflicts the Jedi were the first to ignite their light saber signaling that they were looking for conflict and not peace. They also talked about how Luke realized this and that's why in return of the Jedi he tosses his lightsaber at the end.
I know it's a long shot but hopefully someone remembers this video.

2022.01.26 14:52 --flying1993 Should I just tell her how I feel
Hey people, I’m in the need of some much wanted advice. There’s this girl I’ve known for the past few years starting in high school. It’s been two years since high school and I recently reached out to her again (I was messaging her January last year). I was thinking about her recently so I started to message her again.
It’s been fun talking to her but she to me has genuinely made me feel so different the past week. I’ve always had a kind of crush on her but she was with someone in an icky situation earlier on that ended in 2020. She’s the first person to make me love her personality over her looks even though she’s really pretty.
Tonight I thought about what I wanted to say to her. It kept leading me to want to tell her how I feel about her. I don’t know if it will be a big shock to her or not but I hope she would give me the answer I want more then anything. Should I try to call her and just confess my feelings as best I can.

I wanted to try out a katana-swordmaster kind of build, roleplaying a warrior with akaviri-roots. And while making it I thought: I don't actually know nothing about them really. Would it even be possible that the akaviri might be related to any living race at all? I need a lesson here please.
