Cesarean Scar: Ashley

I don't have any pictures but here is my story.

On 5-22-09 I went in just to check to see if I was dilated . As I was waiting to see my OB, I realized I thought I needed to pee and I went to the bathroom and as soon as I closed the door my water broke. My mom went to my appointment with me and they had already called me back to my room and my mom was in there waiting for me. I opened the door and I saw my mom and I was like I think my water broke and sure enough it had.
They made me rush to the hospital , I had nothing with me cause I was with my mom. So I had to rush and call my Husband and tell him to get off work and come on it was time for little Ethan to be here.
I get to the hospital and I got checked in and I started to walk the hallways and outside trying to get my labor started cause I was only three cm. Well I finshed my walking and went back to my room to get monitored for a little while longer.
Well after being there for 3 hours I wasn't progressing at all so they decided to start the pitocin at a low setting and then after awhile I was put to the highest setting. My contractions still weren't consistant and it was working on 15 hours after my water broke so at 3:45 the decided I would need a c-section.
So after the prep work and the bag of antibiotics they sent me to surgery and Ethan was born at 4:26am at 8lbs and 21 inches long.
Honestly it was the best thing to happen because I learned that my pelvis was closed too tight from a fractured pelvis 4 years before and I would never be able to have a child naturally.
