I'm still in the hospital, not sure when I'll be going home.
Our c/section was scheduled for noon and then got bumped back to 1pm. Then I was dead set on being put under because of my last experience with a spinal. However, the drug Dr convinced me to try a spinal again, so I did. THANK GOD it was first try, he was awesome!! So, I was awake and DH got to stay with me and watch her being born.
I was honestly shocked at how tiny she was! I'm so proud of myself for controlling my sugar so well and having a little baby. She's perfect and beautiful, she's such a good baby!
My Dr had a hard time getting in due to so much scar tissue, so it's a really good thing I had the spinal because if you're put under they need to get her out QUICK!
Then closing up took even longer because I had scar tissue attaching to other organs and she had to clean all that up, plus tie my tubes. So, because of the extra clean up, I am SO SO SO SO sore. I'm on vicodin and it only takes the pain from an 8 to a 4.
DH stayed lastnight but had to go home tonight because our oldest has school tomorrow. He'll be back right after she get on the bus. My Mom still has Em, so Jay can be here all day with me. Em has seen Abby twice now and loves to just watch her and tries to help care for her. So sweet!
Well, Just wanted to check in. I'm ready for some sleep and waiting for drugs to kick in.

Hey Paula! Congrats on your little beauty!

So glad you tried the spinal and it was a much better experience this time.
Sorry to hear about the extra soreness, hopefully in a day or two it will be much better.

Glad everything went well. Sorry to hear that you're so sore. I can't imagine having extra pain from scar tissue. Get some rest, and I hope the pain lightens up soon.

I'm so glad everything went well. I know you were nervous but that's great that you got the spinal and didn't have any problems this time. I can't believe how much smaller she looks than Emily did!

Oh and that stinks that Kayla has school tomorrow. The kids here are off because it's Columbus Day.
