Baby 3 ---Emilia Gianna 9/17/08

845am got call to come in
900am dropped kids at Tamiís house
915 went to kneaders for cinnamon roll
1000 am check in hospital
1045 started pitocin
1100 broke water
Still 1-2 cm 70% effaced
1pm got epidural
3pm 3 cm
5pm 7 cm 90% effaced
6pm 8cm almost totally thinned
7pm began pushing
No progress, head not descending
Pushed until 9pm
I was very cold and exhausted
At 9pm Dr Q discussed C-section with us. He said that the babyís head appeared to be too big to get under the pubic bone.
915 pm prepped for C-section
I was very emotional: scared, nervous, &
disappointed. It was absolutely freezing in there. I had the chills and couldn't stop shaking. I didn't know it but I also had a fever.
9:57pm Mountain Standard Time Emilia Gianna was born! She weighed 7 lbs 9oz and were 20.5 inches long.
She nursed as soon as we got back to the delivery room and had no problems.
Dad helped give her first bath at about 1am in the maternity recovery room with mom videoing!

After the delivery, the baby had to have IV antibiotics because her WBC count was elevated due to my fever. They still don't know why I had a fever. She hated that IV. I got thrush because of the IV antibiotics I was given. They didn't detect that until I came home. I'm feeling better but still a week post have pain and really need a couple more weeks of recovery.

DH stayed that night and then went to get the kids the next day. He brought them up that evening. They were SO excited. They just adore their baby sister.


Monica, Mom to three wonderful children
