Friday appt didn't end well and my ob sent me for labs and monitoring in l&d. They weren't good and the on call doc said it was time.

Pit was started at 6pm Friday and lol miss arrived on Sat at 10:02 pm with the help of a vacuum. I can post her stats tomorrow.


I am in love, I can't grasp that she's mine. I'll update when I get home on Monday.

So JM has eaten this post more than a dozen times in a week because I'm too busy with the baby to do it up quickly so here's the spark notes version.

Went in for OB appt, BP high, she sends me to L&D for some more monitor time because baby wasn't doing great on her in office one, and for some labs. Pre E threshold is 300 for protein, I was at 299. On call OB says "we have two options. we can induce you now, or we can induce you tomorrow, but you aren't leaving the hospital".. so by 6pm Pitocin was started. Holy miserable. I labored all night, had my water broken (I was badgered into it. I'm still upset about it) at 7am, Had an epi by 2pm, and was 10cm at 8pm. I pushed for two hours but I was absolutely exhausted and lacked the oomph to get her head out and she went into distress. I now know she was in distress from the time I hit 10cm until she was out, but they didn't tell me and had turned the monitor away so I couldn't see it hours before. Doctor said she needed help out and recommended we try a few pushes with the vacuum before we talked c-section. 6 pushes later she was out and I was hemmoraging thanks to a really wonky 2nd degree tear. I swear it took her forever to cry, but her eyes were open and she was moving.. just kinda limp. If I'd endured what she had, I'm sure I'd be limp and tired too.


August 5th at 10:02pm Alexis Scotlynn Anne was welcomed into the world weighing 9lbs 0.5oz and 21" long. She is doing fantastic, and we had to let her Nanny go back to Canada yesterday so we've had a rough night and day (I swear she's looking around for her), our first in over a week where we are on our own.


A week after delivery I was still swollen, so they had me come in for labs, and they were even worse than before delivery. The next day they had me go into the hospital for some BP monitoring and thankfully everything was regulating itself, but it looks like I may have had a very late case of HELLP syndrome as my liver and kidney labs were both impaired and I had pain under my ribs.. and I'm fortunate it resolved itself alone.


My princess




She is a fantastic sleeper.. so much so that she will absolutely not wake up to eat no matter what we do. She'd gone into her carseat at 7pm last night, this picture was taken at nearly 11.. and she'd been changed and stripped prior... no interest in her bottle (I'm supplementing and nursing because I can't seem to satisfy her).
