IUI, Positive Medical Induction with Epidural after Cholestasis Diagnosis

After conceiving via IUI, Rosie had a fairly straightforward pregnancy until she was diagnosed with Cholestasis at 36 weeks. She had a medical induction at 38+2, and despite many interventions including misoprostal, a foley bulb, pitocin, internal fetal monitoring, and an amnioinfusion, it was a very positive experience. She delivered her daughter after about 20 hours of labor and just 30 minutes of pushing, with the help of an epidural and an amazing healthcare team. Early breastfeeding and postpartum were hard, but she settled into both and has had a wonderful journey with motherhood thus far.

Today’s episode is sponsored by FamilyAlbum. I’ve been using The FamilyAlbum app for the  last year ever since my brother and sister-in-law adopted my baby nephew! My whole family became obsessed with the usability of this app and it  brought our entire extended family closer together as we could each leave comments on the  photos and give our accounts fun nicknames. I might have teared up when I created that “Aunt  Bryn” name for the first time!! The FamilyAlbum app is totally secure and I love that there’s no third-party ads or unwanted eyes, unlimited storage, and it’s totally free!  

A few of the cool features I’ve discovered using the app are that it automatically sorts photos  and videos by month, allowing you to swipe back in time and see how your child has grown.  Another neat feature is you can order 8 free photo prints every month to be delivered to your home. Level up your family photo game with a free photo sharing app with unlimited storage. Head over to the app store today, search “FamilyAlbum” (one word), download the app and start creating and sharing in the day-to-day joys of those precious early years!
