Sorry it has taken me so long to update.

I went in on thursday for a scheduled c section.. well as you all know nothing goes as planned. I was to have the c section at 8am but I kept getting pushed back. I lost my normal scheduled dr and ended up having to have another dr... the one who killed me with the group b strep test.. if you all can remember that...At one point I was actually in the OR and they were putting in the spinal and some woman had to push in another room and there was only 1 dr on duty. Needless to say I was taken back to my room to wait. Finally she has her baby and they take me back into the OR and everything began.

Once I was numb they went to work.. pushing and pulling.. my god I thought I was going to fall off the table.. All I could do was close my eyes and pray this will be all over soon and I would have Tristan. I kept saying to my husband.. I dont like it.. all that tugging and pulling ugh.. SO scary!

Finally it was time and I heard Tristan cry... I bawled my eyes out.. to the point that I couldnt stop.. you know when your belly jumps and you seem to not be able to catch your breath.

Once I was done they put me in the recovery room with Tristan and my hubby was there too.. I found that they gave me staples... STAPLES... instead of that glue or stitches. and I have to say.. they hurt like an MFER! Im still in so much pain from them today. I get them out tomorrow. I cant wait.

My stay in the hopital was great.. the nurses were great! they were all very kind and made sure I wasnt in any pain and kept me comfortable.

Now to Tristan... He is Beautiful!!!!!! He remindes me of JJ when he was born.. They look similar but Tristan has his own look at the same time. He is breast feeding like a champ (im so engorged today.. ouch!)

Im so glad to be home I have my mom here and my husband who are both taking good care of me. Seriously this c section is so different from my 1st.. with my 1st I was up and around no pain whatsoever and this one.. well.. PAIN PAIN PAIN. Sometimes to the point im shaking and can barely move.. Im thinking the staples have alot to do with it.. im not really sure.. that and scar tissue maybe??

anyway.. if you made it through all this congrats... Here is a pic of Tristan.

I had sutures and staples and the nurses at the hospital did not believe me i had staples in and they never took them out (i asked a few times) and had to see my primary on Friday to get them out!!!
I hope your recovery goes well Looking forward to more pics of your LO.
