Baby name:Mackenzie Lynn-Ann
Baby birth date: 12/19/03
Time of birth: 5:22 pm
Weight: 6lbs 5oz
Length:19 in
Head circ: ?
Type of delivery: urgent c-section
Early/Late: born at 36wks exactly
Other information about pregnancy/labour/delivery:I will try to make this short inlove.gif It took us 4yrs after our loss (11yrs TTC in total), finding a great dr, a dx of PCOS, 2000mg of Metaformin, 2 cycles of Clomid, and a cerclage to have our little miracle. They thought at first I had a blighted ovum bc I had a BFP so early that they couldn't see the sac and fetal pole. I had to wait ten days after they thought there was a blighted ovum to find out there was actually a baby! It was the longest 10 days of my life! I had GD, and had to take insulin. I had early labor even with the cerclage, and had to go on disability and bed rest. I had to take weekly NST's from 32wks on and BPP every 2wks. I was scheduled for a c-section on 12/22, but when I went in for my NST on 12/19 we failed. They sent us for a BPP and we failed that also. She would not move for anything. They decided to take her that day. I had a spinal and then I heard the most beautiful cry in the world. Mackenzie was so healthy they couldn't believe it! Because I had GD they didn't think that her lungs would be developed enough at 36wks, but she was fine and spent no time in the NICU at all!

Baby birth date: May 2, 2006
Time of birth: 4:07 pm
Weight: 6lb10oz
Length: 20 inches
Type of delivery: vaginal
Early/Late: 12 days before due date
Other information about pregnancy/labour/delivery: We had confirmed the day before via ultrasound that her heart was no longer beating, and I was induced that morning. After 2 hours of pushing, my Dr. decided she couldn't come on her own, used the vacuum, and pulled (I could see the strain on his face). She had the cord wrapped around her neck twice and it almost didn't let her come.

Other information about pregnancy/labour/delivery: I was induced 4 weeks early due to issues with a drop in his heart rate. The peri did an amnio the night before to see if his lungs were mature enough and my OB called me at 11 pm from his home to tell me the tests showed he was ready. I was induced the next morning and 12 hours later I had my little miracle baby. Thank the Lord for my epidural!!

Baby name: Kannon Wilde ...
Baby birth date: September 5th, 2006
Time of birth: 4:39 PM
Weight: 9lbs9oz ohmy.gif
Length: 21-22.5 inches (He kept squirming out of line!)
Type of delivery: Vaginal, unmedicated (except for antibiotics for GBS)
Early/Late: 2 days past due date
Other information about pregnancy/labour/delivery: I went into labor 4 days before, tried to ignore it because I thought I was having BH again. We didn't know what we were having, but I'd had an idea, and all during labor, I was simultaneously concentrating on labor itself and not referring to the baby as "he". I kept doing little dances in between contractions because I was so excited...and tired. My sister almost passed out when the head came out because it went from a teeny plum-sized thing peeping out, then POPPED into a fairly decent-sized baby head!
Date & gestation of past losses: ~21 1/2 weeks, August 2003; multiple early losses up to 7 weeks between November 2003 and November 2005.

Other information about pregnancy/labour/delivery: pretty straight forward pregnancy, however had attempted induction for two days (with prostin gel), which failed to make any progress with my cervix - so I opted to have a c/s. I was booked in for the following morning (Thursday), around midday. 5.30pm that night my mucous plug came away, and then 9.28pm my water broke, there was meconium present, so due to my anxiety issues, I ended up going in for an emergency c/s around midnight

she was very jaundicy and tiny.. well tiny to me. i had a very bad recovery and left the hospital right before christmas eve. i think she let me go home early cuz of christmas not sure.

Other information about pregnancy/labour/delivery: After TTC for 7yrs, and having 3 losses in a 9 month span last year we were thrilled to find out 4 days before Christmas that I was pg. It was an awesome pregnancy withzero symptoms and I felt awesome. My due date came and went though and the week I was overdue I was so anxious to have her. Two days before I had her I woke up and felt different. I could hardly get out of bed, the lower pelvic pressure was intense and made it hard to walk. 2 days later I was having contractions all day that were 4-6min apart, but I couldn't feel any pain. I just felt tightening and didn't want to go to the hospital and get sent home, so DH & I decided we would go shopping for a few items. Well, my water broke in the Walmart parking lot of all places at 4:30pm! When I arrived at the hospital at 5:30pm I was 3-4cm's, and the contractions weren't bad at all. There was meconium in my water so I was closely monitored throughout my labour. I laboured until 12am on my own, and then asked for my epidural. It didn't really take and after 4 top ups I had an hour of relief, but then laboured a hard labour for 3hrs (from 5-7cm's) until I could get another epidural. At 3am I was 7cm and by 5:45am I was 10cm and complete. Instead of pushing though I asked if I could sleep for a bit since I couldn't feel the urge to push. I slept for 2hrs and started to push at 7:50am when I felt the urge. 6 contractions later she was born. I only had a 1st degree tear and I'm healing pretty well. I honestly believe that resting for those couple of hours before pushin allowed her to come down on her own without force, helping me to avoid any tears that involved muscle or an episiotomy. All in all it was a wonderful labour and delivery What a way to end a fabulous pregnancy!
