Well, I had Baby Reed Manning wed 4/22 and am finally back from the hospital. I t was a wirlwind of an experience.

Reed Manning was born:
32 weeks
3lbs 11.2oz
16.5 inches long
10:46am 4/22/2009

I went to L and D on mon becuase of contractions and they sent me home 2 cm dialated and said my usterus was just irrritable but no real contractions. I went back on tues afternoon because the pain would not let up and I was 3cms and water had apparently broke but I didnt know it. I was leaking all day but didt think any thingof it because it was so little and had mucus in it so I didnt think it was my water, just mucus. Anyway, they gave me antibiotics, steriods and an epidural. they next day, I had him at 1046am. I did one "practice push" and the head came halfway out and they started screaming stop!! The doc wasnt even dressed yet. they moved my legs a little and the head just popped out without me dioing anything!! Then, they sucked out his mouth and I gave a little push and the rest or him came out. So I guess had pushed 1 and a half times and thats it.

When Reed came out there were about 4 people working on him at once, they wrapped him up let me kiss him and off to the NICU he went. I dont know what his first apgar was but his 2nd was 9.

That evening, I didnt get to go see him. My left leg was so numb that I had to wait and then I was bleeding too much. I got to see him the next morning. he was only on CPAP for about 12 hours and went to room air. He is under the bili lights for jaundice, he is aactually bottle feeding like a champ 15cc at a time. He is breaking all the rules, showing off with how good he is doing.

As for me, they almost killed me in the hospital. I continued to bleed and bleed and bleed, passing large clots. I kept saying that Im losing too much blood and that I wanted my blood level checked and none of the nurses paid attention to me. I cried several times because I was so scared. When my blood level came back the next day as very low, finally something was done. I am a terrible person totry toget an IV in and of course the one that was in during the delivery was taken out when I moved to postpartum. Anyway, it took 6 hours before someone in the hospital was able to get a line in me. A general sergeon and an anesthesiologist had to come and put IVs in me. I had to get 3 UNTIS OF BLOOD and had an emergency d and c where a small piece of plecenta was found and two ORANGE SIZE CLOTS.

After that, I made a great recovery and feel almost normal and am home. I would have wrote sooner but the network at the hospitla would not let me get on to alot of things with my computer.

i will be going back to the hospital tonight to see Reed and bring him pumped milk.

Oh congrats! He is so adorable and so tiny. That must have been a little scary, especially with the nurses not listening to you. I'm glad they finally clued in and that you're both doing well! When do you think you'll be able to take him home? Congrats again!!!!!

I'm in shock! I didn't think I'd ever see a post about someone having their baby here! It's just surreal to me. (I still can't believe there's a baby in me!)

Congrats! It sounds like you had a couple scary patches but things are going well now!
