Miss Olivia Rae made her grand entrance into this world via emergency c-section at 01:31 am on Thursday, September 9, 2010.
She weighed in at 6 lbs 5 oz and measured 20" long at birth. We had a day stay at the hospital because at first she was having trouble breathing seeing as though she was born at 36 weeks and 5 days. That thankfully resolved within the first day. From the second day until we where discharged and even now at home we are dealing with Jaundice. She had to receive photo therapy at the hospital, which was harder for me then for her.
Thankfully we are home and she is doing well. We went to her doctor yesterday and her bilirubin levels where slowl decreasing. We follow up again on Friday.
As or me... I'm having he hardest time because this is my first section and it was so unexpected due to a placental abruption. The surgeon said I had already abrupted 30% of the placenta by the time they got her out.
I'm in pain not so much because of the incision but more because I am allergic to latex which someone apparebtly forgot to mention to the doctor and so when they sewed me up and bandaged the site, they used latex based materials and gloves.
The next day as they removed the bandages, my skin went right along with it and what little skin was left was left irritated and blistered. It's been a long road but I am eternally thankful and grateful that my beautiful Olivia Rae was the end result.
Her Daddy and I are hopelessly, helplessly, head over heels in love with our little miracle baby
