I haven't read anything on here since Wed, is there ANYOTHER babies, besides mine
Here's my story:
At 1am on Thursday my waters broke. So we headed to the hospital. contractions started after we got to the hospital, but by 9 they weren't doing much. So I got off the monitors and started some walking. I walked a bit, sat down, did it again. But when the nurse checked my BP, it had ski rocketed and babies heartbeat was doing some dips. So I ended up on my left side hooked to the monitors all day.
By noon, my contractions weren't getting any better. I couldn't switch positions, or babies heartbeat would drop. Every time I got up to go pee, his heartbeat (HB from now one) would drop. And I wasn't dilating any more either, I just barely got to 3cm.
So we started the smallest dose of pitocin, within half an hour babies HB started doing drops every time I had a contraction. Isaiah was NOT happy!
So at 3 the decision was made to do a Ceasarean section We got things ready and at 5 the Dr got me in the surgery.
And then there were the little things...like when trying to put an IV in my hands, they had to try THREE times!! And it would not go in. So it went in at the arm.
And I had to have an epidurmal. The nurse tried AT LEAST FIVE times, and finally the Dr had to do it... I HATE NEEDLES!!!
And now, Isaiah has joundice...sigh, not bad enough to stay at the hospital, but enough we have to take him back tomorrow to get another blood test to see if it's any better.
Isaiah weighed 4lbs 15oz, and is 19 inches long. I had to have the csect due to a placental abruption.
Firstly Congrats on little Isaiah, Dorian!!!
Suck that you had to go through all that though, hope you're ok. Hope his jaundice settles soon.
My Eldest was quite badly jaundiced so she had to stay in an incubator under the lights.
Due date today.....still nothing.
Miss 2 is quite sick though....she has picked up a vomiting/diarrhoea bug though, so its probably best she stays put for the next few days.
Congratulations Dorian - your April baby didn't want to wait!....
Sorry it didn't go as planned but at least you are both safe...I love ,love,love his name btw.
Jaundice is pretty common in newborns and it should be fine with time.
Did you have a feeling your yellow bump was a blue one?....
Kirst - it'll be you next....so excited its our month! X
