As for the birth. It was quite an adventure really. Must say having it planned did make things allot different to the "not knowing" of a natural birth.
I was admitted on the 10th at 9am. My csec was scheduled for 1pm. there were loads of forms to fill in and once all that was done I had to shower and wash myself with surgical wash and get ready for my IV - which was the worst part of this whole experience. It took to tries to get the IV in. It was very painful the first time but the second time (with a different nurse) was much better. I hated every minute of having that IV. I didnít know where to put my hand or whether to straighten or bend my fingers! It was horrid!!
So we had to just wait till 1pm. At about 12:45 somebody came through to put the catheter in, which wasnít as bad I thought it would be. It was rather uncomfortable in the beginning. But still nothing beat the IV pain!!
I was also told that there was a delay and I would only be going in after 1pm which was a pain because I was already so uptight about having to wait so long for this.
Eventually at 13:30 the nurses came in to escort us to the waiting bay. Brett was taking to get changed and prepped while I waited patiently to be wheeled into theatre.
Once in the OR the anaesthetist made me comfortable and got me ready for the spinal. But I wasnít allowed to have DH in the room. So another nurse stood in front of me to keep me calm. I was so nervous already and now I had to have this without my DH!! Anyway, it went quick and shortly after laying down my legs was numb. The anaesthetist was brilliant! As soon as I mentioned I was feeling light headed she would give me something to make it go away.

Anyway at 2pm Jace Evan was born looking very green. He had passed meconium in utro. Obviously from all my stressing I had made the poor buggar stress. So once in the nursery they had to pump his stomach. He had not inhaled any which is great only swallowed a fair amount.
The doc also found that there was a knot in his umbilical cord. The doc said they would never have seen it on a u/s and if I had opted for a natural birth I would have ended up with a Csec anyway. I am very grateful that I had the csec!
After he had his apgar and was wiped down I was able to hold him on the operating table. We had some pictures taken and then he was taken away.
Brett followed Jace up to the nursery while the doc stitched me up and it wasnít too long before i was up in my room ready to hold my baby.

Glad he didn't aspirate any maconium....So happy your birth experience was great....so wonderful! Congrats

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.

sounds like things went really well for you!

weird they told you you'd have to have a c/s because of the cord knot..hunter had one, and the cord was around his neck twice but he was born with no complications.
