Grace was actually 1 1/2 weeks late! She was 7lbs 9oz. I think all the tubes just make her look small. We had a very tramatic and hard delivery that included me being on pitocin for 3 days straight. My body did not want to go into labor and for some reason my idiot doctor didn't want to do a c-section. But it was my first baby so I didn't know better so I just listened to the Doctor.
Grace was born with a large collection of blood under her scalp, her blood was not clotting, and she inhaled a large amount of meconium. She spent a little over a week in the NICU. I didn't get to see her for 24hr because I hemorrhaged during the delivery. We didn't get to hold her for 2 days.
The picture in my siggy (the same one below) is a scanned picture of a poloroid one of the NICU nurses brought to me. It was the first time I got to see her.
