Hi Mommies.....I hope everyone is doing well....I am finally a mommy!! Mia Bella arrived on 9/5/09 via c-section - after being almost 1 week late and being in labor for about 20 hrs. Was scheduled to be induced on 9/8 but went to DR for non-stress test on Wednesday and a sonogram on Friday showed that my amniotic fluid was low. Was told to go to the hospital for baby - went home got my things and off I went. They inserted the pill to help me dialate, gave me some good drugs, hubby said I said f*cking Big Bird?? and that I said I was floating around Sesame Street? LOL I got to 5cm and they started the petocin but everytime I received it the babys heart rate dropped so they decided to do a c-section. Was pretty painful but I was glad everything was ok with the baby. Supposedly during the c-section they realized I had a band on/in my uterus that would have made a vaginal birth impossible!! Has anyone heard of this before? DR said its pretty rare and he has only seen it once? Plan to ask more when I go for my f/u visit. Had great nurses and hubby was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING in taking care of me and the baby after the surgery - he changed all diapers until I was able to get up and stayed home with us for 2 weeks doing everything and anything to help!!
Here are a few pictures of our little bundle of joy!!
Mia is now 3 weeks old, 4 weeks on Saturday and is doing amazing!!
