I want to introduce baby Hope, she was born Monday aug 26th at 7:49 pm. I had a c-section scheduled for Tuesday morning but went into labor Monday. I woke up feeling so lousy Monday, was nauseated weak and cramping, had plans to clean but those were out of the question because I felt so bad. By the time I went in for my dr appt at 2pm my cramping had turned to regular contractions. I told the dr about it and he confirmed it after hooking me up to fetal monitor. However at the time I was not dilated at all and contractions were 10 minutes apart. By the time I got out of there at 4 he told me to walk and if the contractions progressed to 5 min apart. So instead of driving back home I opted to stay at hospital and walk for an hour. The first 30 minutes nothing progressed and I was about to head home, but decided to give it another 30 minutes.. And sure enough contractions changed from every 10 to every 5. So I checked in to labor and delivery, when they checked my cervix I was at 1 cm and that was all the evidence needed for the dr to admit me... He was on call and wanted to get home at decent hour do he told the nurses that he wanted to have it done within the hour which was perfectly fine for us. It was a good experience, everyone was nice and caring. They controlled my nausea well during the surgery so it wasn't miserable. My husband was dead set in not looking over the curtain before the surgery, but ended watching the whole thing by his choice and toon lots of pics. We were told shed only be 6 pounds, so I was really happy when she came out 7 pounds 1 ounce, and 18.5 inches long. She is the sweetest little thing, has mild cry and has bonded real well to daddy and I. She is beautiful, looks just like her daddy, has small perfectly round head with full head of hair. She has taken to breast feeding really well, I was only going to do it temporarily, so far we had little bit of an issue with her nursing a whole hour then still acting unsatisfied because my milk hasn't come in yet so I've supplemented a little bit... Husband is being supportive of me breast feeding so far, he didn't want me to initially but is understanding when I explain its a maternal need. I have recovered do fast from c-section, next day had foley out walking around... I've never recovered from a c-section so fast, and dr probably going to discharge me today, which is not the norm, usually I'd be here another day or 2. My only complaint is joe tired I am. She really hasn't let me get much sleep. They are pretty strict about baby not sleeping in bed with you, but when I get home that'll change. Looking forward to taking her home. Ill try to figure out again how to post pics wasn't able to figure out photo bucket before. I'm in love, so happy, so is daddy and my kids are excited to they came up and met her yesterday and held her. It's worth the wait and misery ladies!
