The birth wad great, he was so patient with me pushing, and guided her out with no tears at all. My midwife during labour and birth had to leave her shift 20mins after birth so was very rushed to get out of there, something about getting picked up to go away at 6am on the dot and couldn't be late.
After the birth the OB said he wouldn't be in tomorrow (Sunday) to see me as that's his "family day". So my ob would be in to see me Monday.
After an hour of skin on skin, I had a shower. As I got out of the shower I noticed alot of blood flowing out of me. I hit the button on the wall to call a nurse to check if it was normal. A nurse arrived. I said "ummm, im bleeding" the nurse chuckled and said "oh she's bleeding, thats normal". I said ok. The flow seemed quite heavy and the floor was covered in blood.
I got dressed, sat in a chair, picked up bub and tried to bf her. She latched on and then I had horrible tummy pains which I thought was after birth pains. A mw walked back into the room and I told her about the pain in my tummy. She told me to stand and go back to the bed. I did so and at that moment I thought I pooped my pants, I said 'I just pooed in my pants'. The nurse pulled off my pants and there were massive blood clots falling out. One was right next to where I was laying on the bed, about 20cm in size, so yuck.
The nurse hit the emergency red button on the wall and 5 other people entered the room. One was an anithesist who inserted a drip, they also inserted a catheter as I had a very full bladder and I kept saying I need to pee but I couldn't release the urine in labour or just after birth.
Anyway, the story is I don't accept blood transfusions, so I was supposed to have a very managed 3rd stage of labour to prevent PPH but with the change in OB, I guess he didn't read my file or the mw didn't let him know. And to be totally honest I forgot about having the syntocin drip inserted after birth.
The anethesist inserted the drip to start syntocin and a mw was manually removing the placenta that was left behind as well as trying to vigorously contract my uterus. I was worried about blood loss and and said so then the anethesist said "don't worry we'll give you a blood transfusion". A MW then said "she doesn't accept blood, I have the document here". Which she did it was right next to here on the vital signs machine.
