She is here!!! After 20 hours of labor, 7 hours of pushing, Cadence Etolia was born via emergency c section. 7 lbs 14 oz. 19 1/2 inches long. I'm just now coming out of the med fog I was in ans threw up with. It's 11:45 pm.
My word! That's a long labor and lots of pushing! I'm glad you are OK and baby is healthy. Congrats flick. I'm crying now lol. So happy for you. :-) rest well and enjoy your sweet baby girl! ( beautiful name!)
Congratulations! So happy she is finally here! When it comes to c-sections I've learned stay on top of your pain, don't let it get really bad because then its hard to get it back to a comfortable level. Also the sooner you can get out of bed and move the better you will feel in the long run. I'm talking just getting to standing, maybe a few steps, and gradually progress from there. Its going be harder since your body is wiped out from labor so go very slow.
Thanks for the advice...trying to follow it. Ouchy this hurts.....an update...the pediatrician came to visit Cadence today and tol us that her black eye isn't a black eye. It's actually a cyst surrounding her tear duct. We have an appointment the day we are discharged (either tomorrow or Thursday) to go to childrens hospital for an appointment where they will take a scope to the cyst. She is on antibiotic eye drops right now. She is doing good on breastfeeding with minor issues. She is such a good baby. Rarely ever cries. Makes cute noises in her sleep. And is easy to put down to sleep. She is content looking at things around her bassinet.
Poor baby. Hopefully its a simple fix. Glad to hear she's such a good baby. I love all the little noises newborns make. Everything about them is so precious. Take lots of pictures because they change so fast it'll amaze you.
