Sorry about the lack of posts the last week but I was busy having a baby!!!
Introducing my "Pumpkin," born September 3rd at 9:44am. She was 7 pounds, 3 ounces and 18 1/2 inches long.
I am happy to report that her birth went very well. For those of you who regularly read my blog, you know that I was incredibly nervous about my scheduled c-section since the birth of my last baby was not so great. This time was absolutely wonderful. I was nervous waiting in the pre-op area before hand but when we went back to the OR things went very smoothly. I got numb very quickly and the anesthesiologist was great. The doctors were very quick getting Pumpkin out and she was perfect. When they wheeled me back to the recovery area I was feeling great and chatting with everyone. I even managed to breastfeed in the recovery room. I did start having nausea and vomiting in the recovery area and it persisted for the next 24 hours, but honestly I didn't care because I was so happy everything else went great. We were in the hospital for 3 nights but I was anxious to get out the next day because I was feeling so good. I was able to get out of bed shortly after the c-section and walk to the bathroom and I credit that with a speedy recovery.
Things are going great so far at home. I am happy to have my husband at home with me for now and this next week to help me out as I am still recovering. I still haven't had that first margarita as I am still on Vicodin but I will let everyone know when that momentous occasion occurs. Thank you everyone for the good thoughts about the delivery. I will try and get more posts written in the next days and weeks about my precious little newborn.
