Last Thursday April 29th. I woke up having a contraction. I was hoping that because it was strong enough to wake me up, it was labor. I went to the bathroom and there was light pink spotting, by the time I got back to the bedroom, I was having another. I woke my dh up and we headed to the hospital. I got to the hospital and they were ready to send me home stating that since I was only 37 weeks, it was highly unlikely that I was in labor. At 5:20 they checked me and I was dialated to a 5 and completely thinned out. I was admitted and and IV was started. I was having contractions on top of each other, but wasnt painful enough to ask for anything. At 7a.m. my dr. came in to check on me, due to them wanting to do a c-section being high risk. He checked me and I was dialated to 9 cm. Everything went really fast after that. By 8 a.m I was being wheeled into O.R. at 8:22 a.m Zayne Daniel made his entrance at 9 lbs. 8 oz. The dr. immediately took Zayne to the nursery to be checked for anemia and jaundice as a result of me having the anti-e. I was taken to recovery and my postpartum room. Zayne had to be monitored all day because his bilirubin levels at birth were a 3 and were rising. At 8 p.m. the dr. broke the news that the levels were rising too quickly and that he may need an exchange transfusion which they could not do at that hospital, so they were going to transport him to a childrens hospital 2 hrs. away.They let me hold him first, and then left. I could not go because of just having the c-section, so my dh and FIL went with him to the hospital. The hospital there was amazing! The dr. called me as soon as he checked him to tell me the course of treatment, etc. My dr. released me the next day to go be with my baby. Luckily my Zayne did not require a transfusion as a result of the quick action by all of his drs. At 1 week old, he was released from the hospital and is now doing great. He is gaining weight and eating like a champ. I will post pics as soon as I upload them.
