She's 5 days old today! I started working on this birth story the day we came home from the hospital and was just now able to finish lol
Short, sweet and to the point version:
Wednesday, February 29
-37w prenatal appointment; GBS test, discuss induction date
-BP very high, admitted for observation and lab work over night.
Thursday, March 1
-Blood work all came back "high normal" except one test which came back just over. Not enough to induce labor yet. Waiting on 24 hour urine test to complete and get results. Looking to go home!
-6p Urine test came back with protein levels over 5400. Yikes! Was going to be able to go home as long as they were under 3k. Not happening. Admitted for induction.
-6:30p Cytotec inserted
-7p Started on antibiotics for GBS since we weren't able to get around to getting that test done. Have to receive antibiotic every 4 hours until delivery.
-9p Contractions started, very irregular
Friday, March 2
-12a Contractions getting stronger and slightly more regular
-6a Pitocin started
-Contractions a whole lot more regular and a whole lot stronger
-9:05 Doctor broke my bag of waters
-9:30 Anesthesiologist comes in to give me epidural
-12p Started having some epidural side effects, unpleasant but nothing major.
-1:40p Cervix checked, progressed to a 4
-2p Lots of pressure, called nurse
-2:08 Happy Birthday Haevyn Adalie! 6 pounds 6 ounces, 19 inches of pure, sweet perfection!
I couldn't believe how small she was lol my other two were over 8lbs so when she was sat on me I was like oh no she's missing something! SO small! DH was putting away bread from the store and I was joking that she couldn't be any bigger than that loaf of bread lol sure enough!
