I went to the hospital where I had Maya today and got a copy of my medical records. I remembered driving down the same road 5.5 months ago with a huge belly and intermittent contractions. So many things different, so many things the same.
The records are pretty consistent with my memory of events.

Afterward my hematocrit levels were so low they ordered a blood transfusion. But I guess eventually they ruled against it.
Anyway, no real surprises. They counted 5 hours and 45 minutes of stage 2 labor and called the OB to do the section in the middle of the night. Pretty hard to argue that any of it was done for their convenience.
