I woke up at 4 AM in labor but went back to sleep after about a half an hour. At 5:30 my water broke but was filled with blood and we rushed to L&D where is was decided to do the section. The placenta was already about half way detached and due to how much blood baby was passing in her stool it had been detaching for some time prior.
I am sad that we were not able to have our homebirth and probably wont be able to ever have one but I am grateful our baby is alive and doing well. She had skin to skin with my dh from nearly the moment she was born and is sleeping on my chest right now. We don't have any pictures as it was such an emergency but I will try to post some soon. I am having a hard time processing everything and am in a lot of pain.
ETA: I am finally adding a picture. This was taken at 12 days old.
This was taken by my friend on the day after I came home from the hospital. 5 days old.
