On Tuesday, I had my normal prenatal appointment. All was well until they took my BP. It was elevated. So they took it again and again it was elevated (can't remember the exact number)..I was then sent in for bloodwork and told to do a 24 hour urine collection and thento go home. I was also told to call the doc if I started to have headaches, vision changes, swelling, etc...so I went home. On Wednesday, I woke up nauseaous and with a headache...When I got to work, I starte seeng black spots and the headsche would not let up so I called my doc and they sent me into the OB Triage. On the way there, I begin to have contractions seven minutes apart..when I reached the OB Triage and my BP was taken it was 153/108(or very near that number)! ! After monitoring me for about two hours, I was admitted and told that I was going to be induced. I was put in a room and the cirvedel (sp?) was given at 5pm...at this point I was still 1cm...they checked me again after 12 hours and I was 2cm..I was checked again after 2 hours and I was back to 1cm! YIKES!! The contractions were 5 minutes but my waters hadn't broken and I was still onaly at 2cm. Around 12pm I was checked again and I finally progressed to 4cm. The doc broke my wter bag and I was given my epidural...everything was great and then my baby's heartrate would skyrocket with each contraction and then correct itself...then it would drop too low so doc said "we have worked too hard and waited too long to have this baby, I am scheduling a c-section for 1pm"...I was in tears by then...but I wanted what was best for my baby. After that, everything happened so fast. I was taken to OR and prepped, Michael was led in and the incision happened..my little one was born at 1:30pm on the dot. She weighed 5lbs 15oz and was 18 inches long!!!! She's a little peanut with a lot of spunk and I love her soooo much already! She is very healthy and I cannot wait to take her home!!!

I also had a c-section because Anna's h/b was dropping with contractions and at first I was disappointed but you forget all about the surgery after you see your baby's face.  I am so glad you and your little girl are doing well.  Looking forward to more pictures of you and Makayla!!
