Needless to say we are completely enamoured with our sweet baby girl! The c-section was scheduled a week before my due date and everything ran smoothly. We arrived at Hoag Hospital at 7:30 a.m. and they prepped me for surgery. I was not nearly as anxious or nervous as I was going into the emergency C-Section with Colton. The spinal tap went great and I didn't feel any pain. Devin kept me calm and distracted from the surgery. As they pulled her out I heard my OB say that she was a girl and likes necklaces since she had the umbilical cord around her neck. That made me grateful I went for the c-section rather than a v-bac. I didn't hear her cry very much and they said that it was because her lungs were filled with fluid. So when they finished the surgery I got to hold her for a minute in the recovery room and then they took her to the nursery to monitor her and pump her stomach. So I didn't get to hold her again until around 4 p.m. It would have been unbearable to be away from her for that long except for the fact that the spinal tap had made me incredibly groggy and I could not keep my eyes open. So by the time the drugs wore off I had less than an hour wait. Devin was alternating checkups between the baby and I until we got her into my room. We are enjoying having her home and I'm recovering much faster than last time. I didn't get swollen like I did post-surgery with Colton and I'm getting much more rest this time. She is a great eater and sleeper so far!
