Well mine is still pretty cut and dry compared to most because I had a schedualed section on the 20th of April. Well I got there at 5:00am and got prepped and all that good stuff. They took me to the OR at around 7am My mom came with me because I am her only daughter and she didn't get to see my son born and this would be her last chance so my hubby said that he'd sit out so she'd have a chance. Any way after what seemed like forever the Epi doc came in and had me get on the table and get into the fetal position as best as possible... and hunch my back out like an angry cat.lol... well after trying for what seemed like 30 minutes... probably only like 10 0r 15 mins He decides that we won't be able to do the epi because every time he would put the needle in I would get a sharp stabbing pain in my right hip. So they had to put me out.. So now instead of just crying, I am sobbing uncontrollably, I was awake for my son and I wanted to be awake to see my new daughter, I just couldn't stop weeping... any way they put the mask on me and then I woke up. it was really hard for me to wake up for some reason? I remember they asked me if I was awake enough to look at pictures of my baby and I said no. I can't believe I said no.... any way Then When the nurse came back by I asked if I had a girl and she said yes and then showed me my pictures of my amazing baby girl. She looked a lot like my son but continually changed and has more her own look. Any way with all that said, I know it was of God that I wasn't allowed to be awake during the c-section because they had problems with Ali when she first came out( I know I would have freaked out) She had to be put on oxygen for a bit and they had trouble getting her to respond or wake up... So, Every thing is good so far now. She wasn't on oxygen very long because she was born at 8:22am and was brought up to my husband who at this time is pacing, they said the baby would be born around 8 and he still had heard nothing. ( oh and my mom didn't get to be in with me because I had to be put out) But any way wow my thoughts are jumbled. Anyway She wasn't on the oxygen any more at around 10 when she was brought into my husband. And then I followed at around 10:30... So My poor hubby. I felt so bad for him not knowing what was going on. Any way She is a beauty... She is Alirene Maybelle Lewis Her name is taken from my mothers name Alice Irene, So that is how I got her name. oh and her middle name is my grandmothers first name.
Alirene Maybelle Lewis
