I went in for an appt. at 10:10 am to check my b/p and they sent me to the hospital to be induced. Before they even started, baby's heart rate kept dropping, so they said he needed to come out now and I had him at 1:25 pm. I carried him for 9 months but I feel I wasn't even there for his birth. Everyone got to see him before me. I'm so thankful that he's healthy, but it's like I'm missing something. I had my 6 week pp appt. yesterday. I asked my OB some questions about his birth, and my dh seemed to think I was being weird.
The same happened to me with my twins. They had to get them out asap but I was just so happy that everything turned out ok that nothing else mattered to me. I think in my case the skin to skin contact helped me bond a lot.
I hope someone else can be of more help.
