Birth Story- a bit long

Sorry I'm late posting my computer has mental issues.

Monday May 14, 2012 at 8:15 am via scheduled C-Section Morgan Leigh was born. 7lbs 15 oz 20.5 inches long. Extremly healthy and happy.

Then C-Section went good, I guess my uterus was so large they had to vaccum her out. It was so funny b/c my whole 2-3 trimester I had like 6 scans b/c they were so worried about how big she was getting and here she was so small and it was just my body! I did have alot more pain this time around then last which is typical on repeat c-sec. I was pretty much helpless for a few days and actually made it worse when I finally felt some what better I did too much and got yelled at by my hubby b/c I was hurting so bad.

On a not funny note, I am glad I double checked b/c somehow the OR nurses left out on the surgery pre op double check my tubal so they did NOT tie my tubes, They looked at me like I was nuts when I wouldn"t leave without a Deo shot! I said it took 2 years for her and I probally would get preggo on the first shot this time. So I have to go get my tubal done in a few weeks.

We are all doing well and adjusting to our new family addition. My eight year old is doing much better then I thought and being a mom the 2nd time around is so much more relaxing then with the first.

Thank you all for your support during this pregnancy.

Congrats! Glad to hear that everything went good. You said your 8 yr old is doing well? My DD is also 8 and while at this point she is acting so excited, waiting for her little brother, I am afraid there might be some jealousy once he arrives.

Congrats again!
