So far, so good.
There were a few things that got a bit hairy. I had a (rather expected on my end) low blood sugar Monday morning. They were a bit unhappy that I was refusing an insulin drip in lieu of my pump, but I got it back up and was able to keep it between 85-95 from pitocin to delivery (yay). At some point during delivery, the infusion set came out and I didn't notice for a few hours, so I went a bit high, but it came down quickly and has been good since. I did get an epidural at the very very end that I (and my team) did not realize was the very very end. It was only in for an hour between insertion and after birth, so I was lucky to avoid any of the unpleasant side effects. She was little, like we were expecting, 6 pounds, 2 ounces, and 18 inches long, but she came out with the quickness, so I did tear pretty badly. I had discussed waiting and seeing about the episidomy a minute or two before she was born, and there just was not even time for that. I was pretty convinced I'd rather tear, and I'm still glad that I didn't agree to get cut. I'm very glad that was avoided. Apparently I have a very short perinium, so I didn't take too much! I'm not uncomfortable, except when I cough (will this lung thing go away!?!?!?!) and it feels like I'm being torn again, so i'm taking some percoset and treating with ice.
Baby's blood sugars are great, she is feeding great. She had slightly low body temperature so spent an hour or two on a warmer, but if that is the worst, than I'm pretty happy with that! I'm so tired. I haven't slept more than a few hours since Thursday night. Baby did well sleeping last night, but they were coming in every 2 hours to make sure I tested my blood sugar, which got pretty old. My insulin needs dropped a lot, endo told me not to treat anything very aggressively. It is weird having that flexibility/lack of guilt/permission for it to not be perfect. Its stayed under 150, so I'm pretty happy with that.
Lifeguard: Did she get stable? How long did it end up taking?
