Si was born yesterday! All 8 pounds 14 ounces of him :D and he is absolutely BEAUTIFUL!
water broke around 6:20 yesterday morning and I woke Jason up shortly
thereafter. I didn't even have my bag packed to take to the hospital and
I never imagined that my water would break on its own. Needless to say
we packed as fast as we could and headed to Mobile.
didn't take so I ended up with an epidural and a spinal block. The
surgery went smoothly and Si was born at 11:32 am.
He is a beautiful child! I am so very truly blessed by God.
Yesterday afternoon I was in more pain than I have ever been in my
life. There has been no other pain I have ever experienced that is
comparable to what I felt like yesterday evening. Thankfully my parents
and Jason's parents had already left. I had every nurse on the floor in
my room at one time. They even called the nurses that were with me
earlier in the day to coke back because something wasn't right. Then
they called the doctor who performed the c-section.
After 4 hours
of crying, begging, and even having an anxiety attack, they determined
that I have a hematoma in between two of the layers of stitches. My
blood pressure dropped to 60/35 and I honestly thought I was about to
die... I couldn't breathe... it was the scariest moment of my entire
They gave me something for the anxiety and tried getting
my pressure back up but it seemed to take so much longer than I'm sure
it actually did. And then once I felt better, it happened again. Finally
by 11 o'clock last night I was somewhat better. Not 100% by any means
but I was able to fall asleep.
Today has been a much better day
:D I got to hold my beautiful baby boy! He is so sweet and perfect! I
cannot get over how miraculous it all is... and how blessed I am...
I just got a dose of Benedryl because I am apparently allergic to
morphine and any other good pain relievers other than Percocet. And I
got a dose of Ambien so that I can sleep...
