Hey ladies. Just checking in. From the hospital. After more than 24 hours after my water broke, one of the midwives did an exam and i was dialated pretty darn good, but she thought there was something wrong with the head (which freaked me out) and so we went upstairs for an ultrasound and found out the baby was coming butt first. We had to transfer to the hospital and neither OB would deliver a breech and it was more than 24 hours after my water broke, so I really did not have any other option but to get the c-section.

As soon as I had the ultrasound at the Birth Center I was a wreck. I was hysterical and cried until I went into the OR. Once in the OR I chilled out and just went with it. Nothing I could do at that point.

In the end, we have a beautiful little girl, born at 3:19pm, 5lbs 13oz. I do believe she turned sometime during labor. I will say I had an awesome and totally intense labor, and even had to chug 2 containers of castor oil last night (OMG). I will write up a birth story sometime soon. I am so bummed i am trapped in the hospital for a few days, but I will survive.

Thanks for all your support. Everyone at the Birth center and hospital thought I was a super star on how I handled my labor and no one could believe I was as far along as I was with the way i handled the contractions. That made me feel good

Here are a few pics, we have not taken much, more tomorrow

She is so tiny!







I would also like to add that they did not bathe her until a few hours after her birth, so I got to cuddle with her, blood, cottage cheese and all. They wiped her down after she was born, but she was au natural.
