Well, as most of you know, I was diagnosed with PIH (Pregnancy Induced Hypertension) and had all of the pre-e signs, so my doctor was monitorin mrr pretty closely... well FINALLY the straw that broke the camel's back was on Wednesday, March 26th - my head was pounding, BP was back high & I was having "other symptoms" so I called the doctor. They sent me to L&D Triage to be monitored for a few hours at 11am. They monitored me & saw that my BP was still high... but we had made it to 37 weeks, so my doctor decided to admit me FOR REAL & induce!

So, by 2pm I was in a room & ready to go... to make a long story short, I was given 3 12 hour doses of Cervadil through Wednesday night, all day Thursday & then on Friday morning (28th) they started the pitocin - which baby Elizabeth DID NOT LIKE - she was having a lot of heart decels, so I was put on oxygen & taken off pitocin by 5pm. The doctor came by around 6 & she really wanted to just send me upstairs to the ACU for hospital bedrest & to try induction next week - but she did give me the choice of a c-section. Because of EVERYTHING me & Elizabeth had been through at that point, needless to say I chose the c-section!!

Well, by 8:45pm that night, I was in the OR getting a spinal (which by the way - went really well for me - everyone told me it would be awful, but honestly it wasn't!!) They did the c-section with my DH there with his camera. It was quite an experience & I was quite surprised that I was so calm through it all. All of a sudden I hear my doctor go "OMG SHE'S MOONING US!" And honestly, this didn't quite "register" with me - and then she says "SHE'S BREECH!!" - OMG my doctor didn;t even know she was breech - and all this time I spent 2 days trying to be "induced!" Well, no wonder the induction failed!

She came out at 9:23pm on March 28th, 2008. She weighed 5lbs 13oz and was 17.5inches long. She is my petite princess! I honestly can say, I never thought love at first sight could happen - but it can & it did!! I love her so much!!

Here are a couple pics:
- WILL POST SOON!! - uploading online now!!

Happy 5th Birthday to my princess Elizabeth!

I am so glad she's finally with you! You really went through a lot this pregnancy so I am sure you're relieved and I don't blame you for choosing the section. She's beautiful and congrats!

Congrats! I think I would have chosen the c-section too if I had been through all that.
