OK. Well this took me a while to get posted, but here it is. I had an appointment with my midwife on Tuesday the 20th just to check my blood presure and all of that good stuff. We were planning on having our c-section on Friday the 23rd. Well my blood pressure was better from being on bedrest, but still not good. My midwife came in to do my exam, and casually tells me that we will be doing my csection tomorrow. I was like WHAT?! So we showed up at the hospital at 9:00 am on Tuesday, I filled out my paperwork,got settled in the post-partum room, got my labs done, and got shaved (yikes that tickled!). At about 12:15 my doc and midwife arrived, so at 12:30 they took me into the OR. I got my spinal, which was an absolute breeze, and it was super fast from there. They layed me down, got my catheter in, and delivered our perfect angel at 12:43pm. They told me when they layed me down that she was floating, meaning she was still very high, so they did a verticle incision instead of a bikini cut. Oh well, I wouldn't be caught dead in a bikini anyway. I now look like I have a butt on my backside AND my frontside.LOL! Oh well. We are so in love! The whole experience couldn't have been any better considering the circumstances. Yeah, I would have preferred to have a vaginal delivery, but this was smooth sailing. Also, the staff at the hospital was absolutely amazing! Here is her hospital picture. She weighed 7lbs, 3oz, and was 21 1/2" long. Right now her hair is kind of a brownish red color. She scored a 9 and 9 on her apgar score. What a miracle it is to be a part of the birth of a child, especially your own!
