I am going to make this as short as possible.


As you all know, I was scheduled for induction at 9 am. After talking to my Dr, they wanted to go ahead and do a C-section b/c they were scared of shoulder dystocia. I am a huge surgery risk due to prior surgery so I was shocked they wanted to even try it.

Ava was born at 4:42 pm on March 31st weighing 7 pounds, 9 ounces. 20 inches long. Not the 8 pound baby we thought, but still big for me.
She went to the NICU to be monitored like all C-section babies do. They discovered a few things about my Ava in there. She needed O2 for a while and she had some trouble keeping up her body temp. She is NOT a 39 week baby, She is most likely a 35-36 week baby due to many reasons. So, I have a big preemie! Imagine how big she would've been in another 4 wks.
She also has a birth defect on her left little toe. Not a biggie and will be fixed when she's older. As far as birth defects go, this is nothing.

I had some problems with my kidney quitting the night I had surgery and a bad reaction to the spinal. Both were better 24 hrs after surgery, thankfully. They pumped me with so much fluids, my face swelled . That's going down too.

We are home now. She is down to 7 pounds, 2 ounces. She is 72 hrs old and already eats 3 ounces every 3 hours. She's a piggie!


And, of course, I am in love!

She has a touch of jaundice and her eyes are super swollen, both will get better in a couple days

Congrats, Hope!
She's really cute, I like her outfit! What kind of birth defect does she have on her little toe? Natasha had a minor one too (still does).

Thanks girls! I love her so much!



Julka, Ava's little toe is almost split in half so it looks like she has 2 miniature toes. She'll get surgery when she's a toddler. The nurses didn't even notice it when they were cleaning her up. It's so tiny.

Ohhh, okay, thanks for explaining it. I can imagine it being so tiny. Natasha's issue was different - her little toe was raised (sticking out) above the other ones and kinda going over the other toes, to the side. She might need a plastic surgery when she's 2 or so, only if we have problems finding shoes for her. We're still figuring it out... it sucks, but it needs to be done.
