Back story - Due to have a c-section and deliver a baby girl

Birth Story:

Sunday Feb 12 I had been on the go most of the day trying to use the last 2 1/2 weeks of my pregnancy to get things squared away for the baby. I was experiencing a little discomfort - no more than I thought I should be feeling for being 36+ weeks along and walking most of the day.

Got home, fixed dinner and was getting ready to go to bed, but I made a pitstop in the bathroom first (of course). As soon as I sat down I felt something kinda heavy and unusual come out and experienced some bleeding. I called my husband in the bathroom and he was like no way. I said I need to call the doc and find out what we should be looking out for. I called the doc and got the nurse midwife on call and she said to be onthe safe side since I had already started soaking a pad to come in. So not having my hospital bag packed yet, I grabbed a pair of sweatpants and my robe and shoved them in the diaper bag.

My husband let me off in the front at the elevators I need to use and drove off to find a parking spot. Well those doors locked at 9 and it was 9:30 and my hubby had vanished. So I go walking around by the ambulance center unable to get in and then I corsse over into the emergency room area. I asked one of the technicans the easiest way to get to L&D (of course hoping I'd be wheeled off) but noooooooooo they told me exactly how to get there. So I'm still hoofing it through the hospital by then I'm aggrivated and getting a little pain.

I make it up to L&D to find my hubby and a team of nurses waiting for me. I get into the exam room and go through a painful inspection of my lady parts and the midwife said I think your water broke. Stupid me asked what does that mean (I know I knew what if meant, but I was out of it) She said it means we may have a baby tonight - so she ran a test on my fluid and said yep we're having a baby tonight. To which I replied I'm not ready for the baby tonight - she laughed and said no time like the present. My hubby makes a phone call to my parents and tells them it's baby time and I hear my mother scream at my dad to get up and she hung up the phone.....lol priceless

So it takes them 45 mins to prep the OR meanwhile I'm being stuck, monitored, hooked up to see the baby heartrate, etc. They walk me across the hall to the OR and I get prepped for my c-section. My hubby comes in and sits behind the curtain with me and we are just talking while the docs conduct their business.

They start asking us about the sex of our baby and what we're going to name it. So we said we're having a girl and her name is Katelyn. Oh that's great blah blah blah - and then the doc says - so you're having a girl? We replied yes and he said "well I see a penis!"

My hubby yelps "WHAT?!" and the doc repeats your baby has a penis and then I chime in "holy sh*t" and the doc laughs and said yeah that's what we said too...lol

So they pulled the curtain down and let me see his penis flying in the air - and they escort my husband over to see him on the table and he walks back to me and said "it's a boy, baby" He leaves the room to tell my parents and everyone is in shock.

It's been a whirlwind since then, but I'm so in love with my baby boy.

His name is Christopher Robert 6lbs 9oz, 19 inches long.
