Hello! S. Rivkah was born by emergency c-section last Thursday. To make a long story short, once again I had a suspicion my water had broken, but no actual evidence. All of the tests came back negative until the ultrasound Thursday afternoon, done in anticipation of a possible version (she turned herself around on Teusday). There was no fluid left, she was in a double footling breech position with cord evident between her legs as well as around her neck and over her head. Thankfully, I wasn't having real contractions as even the BH were enough to make her have decelerations. If she had engaged, the cord would either have prolapsed or been sat on; either way she had to come out the hard way. I'm recovering well, and having a hard time dealing with the fact that I just had major surgery and need to relax to recover.. that's so not me! It's also a real bummer that I can't lift Eli right now.
On the other hand, I have a lovely little daughter.
She's a sweetie pie, and she nurses like a champ!
We're hoping to have our computer back tomorrow, Saturday at the latest!
I can't wait to upload all the pictures we have! I've got some great ones of Eli and Rivkah tandem nursing.
He's such a sweet big brother! He's a little bit jealous, but for the most part he's doing really well with everything. I think it has a lot to do with the fact that Mike is home with us/him, helping him adjust. I'm trying to relax, but it's really beyond me at the moment... I'm so wound up and then I'm asleep. :LOL At any rate, I'm really impressed with how Eli is handling big-brotherhood.
Thus far, all is well!
