She’s here! Delivered on 07/12/18 at 9:11am via repeat c-section. My delivery was a bit rough, after they took her out I started to feel the surgery, so they had to drug me up quiet a bit (rather than put me under general anesthesia). Callie came out screaming and had wonderful apgars, she weighed 7lbs 4oz and is 19.5 inches long.
My recovery was going smoothly until 24 hours post op when I started to vomit. I had no lower bowel sounds from all the drugs I received my bowels were still asleep. So I ended up back on IVF, quiet dehydrated and felt just aweful. Slowly after a little bowel rest and walking around I was able to start clear fluids by mouth and things started to move down. But let me tell you vomiting on a fresh incision was the worst pain I could I imagine! I was very close to having to stay another night but ended up coming home the night of 07/15/18.
I’m happy to be home with everyone. My wife has been an amazing support person in and out of the hospital. Reese is adjusting well to her big sister role. And baby Callie, needs to gain weight instead of lose! We took her to her first pediatrician appointment and she lost 10% of birth weight, so we will go back tomorrow for another weight check. Hoping for good news!
