c-section



We went in for my scheduled c-section and after a few delays and some high blood pressure issues Eli was born at 12:38pm, he weighs 7lbs 13oz and is 21in long.  My blood pressure seems to be getting better and Eli is doing great.

Swelling



I am going in to do my lab work and paperwork before my C-section in the morning!  I can't believe Eli will be here in less than 24 hours!  My body is ready to be done with the pregnancy, my nose is dry but crusty with blood, my swelling is aweful and isn't going down at night any more and for some reason I am having 3 or more bowel movements a day! Still need to steralize bottles and pacis but hopefully won't need the bottles for awhile still.

Blood Pressure



Pretty much the same as last week, blood pressure is alittle higher but not actually high.  My weight is going up quicker than I would like but the Dr. doesn't seem concerned.  I will go Sunday for my pre op and they will tell me what time to be there Monday so that I should have my C-section by 9am! I just have to get thru Christmas and then we will be good to go!

c-section



Went to my weekly appt. and my bp was alittle higher, 134/82 and the baby's hr was 140.  Everything seems to be going well and the Dr. did not say anything about the Strep B test so I am figuring it was negative.  I have one more appt. next monday then the monday after Christmas I will be admitted for my C-section.  I was having a few period-like cramps yesterday, but only while I was riding in the car and I haven't had any today so we will see.  Also the Dr. said I am measuring at 38 weeks, so I am no longer measuring "SMALL".
