Magnolia Faith was born 19 January(her EDD) at 3:33 PM. She weighed 7lbs 7oz and was 21 inches long. Labor began the morning of the 18th and progressed to active labor at around 3 AM the 19th. After a relatively smooth dilation and some productive pushing, babe's heart rate, my heart rate, and my temp skyrocketed. A vaccum extraction was attempted but very painful and unsuccessful. During the very emergent c-section, it was disocvered that my amniotic fluid, uterus, and bladder were all infected. It was the severely swollen bladder that made a vaginal delivery impossible, as it was the size of a 22 week uterus! We spent three days in the hospital.
Thankfully, babe and I are AWESOME :D!
Breastfeeding is going well,, as is co-sleeping and baby-wearing.
This family is now on babymoon!
