My birth story : I had a scheduled C-Section on 1-24-12. I arrived at the hospital at 6:30am. Since I work there in L&D I had one of my best buds as my nurse. She got my IV started and drew some blood. I then waited for anesthesia to get started. I was super nervous bc my epidural with my first son took 5 tries and they said I had small disk spaces. They took me back for my spinal and the resident got it in on the first try! It didn't even hurt. That was the part I was most worried about! I became numb about 5 min later. I felt like I was in happy land lol I was lucky enough to have my mom and husband in the OR with me. Normally they only let the husband but I guess I get some perks for working there ;-). Jett was born at 8:56 am after they had to work on me bc I had a lot of scar tissue from the first section. I heard his cry right away and they out down the drape for me to see him! It was an amazing moment! His Apgars were 8 & 9. I got to touch him and had him laid on my chest about 5 min later. I got to breastfeed right when they took me into recovery. He was 9 lbs 3 oz and 20 inches long. He is a great baby! I'm not producing enough milk so we had to start supplementing and now he refuses the boob :-( I'm only pumping about 1/3 of an ounce total out of both sides so he mainly gets formula. I'm in the 5% of woman that can't produce enough milk. I'm at peace with it now. He is having gaining issues and only weighs 8-2 so we have to go back in a couple days for another weight check. He is an easy baby. I have to wake him for his feedings!! Here are some pics of him now and at birth. :-) here he is at birth and here he is today at 8-9 days old :-)
Love My House Of Boys!
