Precious <3






I came in for my scheduled induction Tuesday night but had already started dilating so we did not end up doing thecervadil asplanned. By the next morning I was at a 4 and so they broke my water. I was having contractions 2-3 minutes apart. After 4 hours I was still at a 4 so we started some pitocin. After 3 hours of that still a 4 but in the last hour I went from a 4 to a 10. Baby ended up being posterior and was having a hard time moving down so it was a more difficult labor than any of my other babies. After 8.5 hours though she was born and just precious.
There was talk about moving to an emergency c sec since she wasn't moving down so I just gave it all I could and out she came.

The first night her temps were high and in the am they ordered some tests, her CBC showed a high white count so she went down to the nicu for iv antibiotics. She has been there for the last 48 hrs. (she moved into special care yesterday). I was able to spend the night in one of the sleep rooms and keep nursing her so that was great.
Her temps have stabilized and her repeat CBC came back much lower and urine cultures were negative, x rays good so we just got the discharge ok!! Sooo excited and ready to have my family all at home together!
I miss the kids and they are so excited to meet their sister.
They did get to see her one by one in the SCN after they were washed and temp checked but only for a couple minutes each.

I'm so excited to be able to get her home!
