Of course I don't mind ladies!! I appreciate the thought... the last few days have been unbelievable!

Regan Page was born at about 6:30 Thursday morning. My induction started Tuesday at 1:00 pm. We did cervadil first and that got my body contracting, but they petered out. About 5:00 pm on Wednesday we started Pitocin. That kicked things up. But I still didn't progress very fast. We weren't too worried about it because baby was handling it all just fine and my water hadn't broken. We decided to break my water and there was meconium. When I hit 5 cm and 60% effaced my body wanted to start pushing. That would then make Regan's heartrate dip. So at that point we decided that it would be best if I got an epidural. The anesthesiologist came and put in my epidural and it was great for about an hour. Then I was feeling everything again. So I got a second epidural. That one worked better, but after being on it and increased pit for a few more hours, we discovered that my body had stalled at 9cm. I was so frustrated that that point! 35 hours of unmedicated labor and 5 with the epidural, only to be told that it wasn't going to happen!

So the doctor was sure that at this point my uterus was so tired that there wasn't any point in trying any further. DH and midwife and I talked about it and we just couldn't see any other course of action working as well to get her here safe. So c-section it was. The rolled me into the OR and she was here before we knew it. But almost immediately they knew there was a problem and they'd taken her to the nursery. She was not breathing right and they've been working on it ever since. So I'm in a room down the hall with DH and she's in the nursery. I got to really hold her for the first time this morning and got our first go at BFing tonight. I have been pumping so hopefully my milk will still come in with no problem. It's been really hard. But she's improving. They say that once her respiratory rate gets down they'll be able to let her go. But she has to have oxygen right now...

So... here's a picture of my little Regan Page!

Aww! Sounds like you had a rough time of it, and for that I'm sorry! But I'm glad your little girl is with you now! I hope she does real well and gets to breathing just fine on her own soon. Is that bubble around her kind of like an oxygen tent?
Thanks for the update!

Yeah I think they call it a hood... They kept her in that for the first day and a half with about 30% oxygen. Her respiratory rate was around 120. Today they moved her onto a nasal cannula so that I could have some skin to skin time with her. Her chest xrays are looking good and she's got her respiratory rate down to about 70, except when she gets upset. A normal newborn rr is 30-60. She gets so worked up and is taking such shallow quick breaths that her oxygen saturation drops. Of course eating when she's breathing like that is pretty impossible. I've managed to pump about 4 ccs of colostrum that they let trickle down her throat when she's calm. And she's got so many wires and things attached to her that it's really hard to get a good position to try and get her to latch... we did for a bit tonight though and that was really wonderful.

Aww...that sucks that you have to be separated from her, but I'm glad you got to have some skin-on-skin time. That must have done your heart good!

I'm glad she's getting the care she needs but know it must be so difficult. I hope she gets released soon!

She is beautiful! Lots of hair I am sorry that she has to be in the nursery, my Reagan had the same problem, there was meconium in the bag of waters when it broke and she ended up in the nursery as well for a couple of days. Glad you are all doing fairly well...how are you feeling?

And congratulations!!
