The Birth Story:
This birth was MUCH different than the last one. It went so smooth. I was going to try for a vbac (having a baby naturally after a c-section) but my body didn't agree. I had to go into labor by myself to try to have a vbac and I wasn't progressing or anything, so I decided it was best to just go ahead and do the scheduled c-section. So on April 6th we showed up to the hospital at 8:30 in the morning and started getting everything going. I changed got all my paperwork done, got my IV in and then I walked down to the operating room. I was really nervous to get the epidural this time around. I am a baby about shots and when I got it last time it was so painful. So I had to go in by myself, Jake couldn't come in until everything was set up and ready to go. The anesthesiologist came in and had me hunch over and stuck me with the numbing shot and then did the Spinal. I didn't know that they did spinals now for c-sections, but it was much less painful. My IV hurt worse than that. I was numb in about 1 minute and was ready to go. It was a weird feeling this time, I could feel all the pressure and my body moving, but no pain. They had him out in about 5 minutes and it was so special. It never feels real to me, but he was here and perfect. The kept saying how pretty he was. He had the nicest round head ( 1 plus for having a c-section) and his skin looked perfect. Jake went over and look pictures and stayed with him while they sowed me all back up. Jake did accidentally look over while they were doing that, and saw all my guts. He said it was pretty cool, but he didn't want to see it. While they were in there though they did find that I had endometriosis on my ovaries so they fixed that too!
After they were all done they took me back to labor and delivery and made sure I was going to survive. Then I went up to Mom and baby. The only thing that I didn't like was the numbing medicine made me itch. They gave me benadryl to help but I was itchy for several hours later.
This c-section was so much better. My body wasn't so worn our from hours of labor and I am healing so much faster. We are so happy to have this new little one here.
Reed doesn't pay to much attention to him. He did get me the wipes the other day and threw them right at Nash's face, but that is about it. He is getting a little jealous. For the most part he is doing great.
