C-section tomorrow UPDATED She's here!

Well C-section day tomorrow! In 8 hours I will be having my baby girl by c-section. Please think of us and send lots of positive vibes :) Excited/Nervous/Anxious and Joyful.




Thank you all for your thoughts. My c-section went well. The spinal worked and I was awake for the birth of my baby girl and got to hear her first cries watch her being weighed, asked for the vernix to be not all rubbed off and my midwife brought her over to me for a face to face snuggle (they had the drapery really high up on me) She was not separated from me at all :)


Mila Lilian was born on June 7th, 2012 at 8:50 am weighing in at 9lbs 3oz and was 21" long her APGAR was 9 at 1min and 9 at 5mins!


I am healing really well and even got out of the hospital a day early (thankfully, the nurses are so not encouraging) My milk is now in and my left breast is hurting. Mila's latch is getting better but not perfect yet so my nips are a bit tender but she is getting lots of milk. She is sleeping really well at night and only fussing to nurse every 2-3 hours but is side lying nursing already so we are sleeping well. I am so in love with her joy.gif
