I went in for my weekly sono and and appointment on Thursday April 14th, Sono was at 8:30am, it was a Bio-physical sono, which the tech explained measured breathing and movement. My BP had been up consistently the day before and Katelyn wasn't moving as much, just little flutters instead of huge kicks like normal... The sono tech confirmed she wasnt really moving, she even tried using the little shocker thing and Kate still wouldn't move.
I saw one of my normal dr's associates, and she advised that we would be having Kate that day. She said my uterus was "hostile" (LOL) and Katelyn would be better off outside. She told me to go straight to the hospital which is right across the street.
So off we went. We ended up leaving the dr and getting to the hospital around 10am. I got checked in, got my IV and everything and was told she would be arriving around noon.
I had to have a csection, no VBAC like i wanted, since they couldnt induce.
They wheeled me back to the OR, gave me my spinal, prepped me and then the nurse went and got hubby. The nurses were Awesome in the OR, they were so sweet and made me feel so comfortable.
Katelyn made her grand entrance into the world at 12:43pm, weighing 6lbs 9oz and 18.9 inches long. She came out screaming, such a beautiful sound. Her agpar scores were 8 and 9.
They took me to the recovery room and hubby and Kate went to the nursery where they checked her out and got her all cleaned up. They came back to me in recovery shortly after and I got to nurse her. It was an amazing experience!

We aren't to give a baby milk, berries, or peanut butter. We are to introduce new foods one at a time. But it's OK to inject several viruses, bacteria, aluminum, formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol, animal serum, mercury, squalene and more into an 8 week old? I don't think so.
In order to be healthy it is an unfortunate fact that people must be allowed the opportunity to be ill. I trust my body and those of my children to work correctly against the relatively benign diseases they vax for, and do not trust the ingredients in the vaccinations.
Our choice to not vax isn't based in ignorance, poverty, conspiracy theory and rumor. It's research, common sense, fact and evidence based..something the medical community has largely forgot about.
