Jacob was born healthy! THANK YOU for your prayers

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Jacob Alan Ruble was born at 2:25 p.m. on Thursday, October 18th by c-section. He weighed 8 lb 9 ounces and the only complication was that he was so big they couldn't get him out through the incision and required two vacuum attempts before he was out. Before the surgery, I had asked that the pediatric team really focus on suctioning him so we could try to avoid any respiratory complicatons like my first two had and the team was so supportive. I am proud to announce that Jacob was able to join me in recovery and was born healthy with no signs of infection. He was the first of my babies to be with me the entire time. He has taken really well to breastfeeding and we were both able to return home this afternoon. I am emotionally fantastic but not having such a great recovery. With the 3 back to back c-sections, this recovery has been extremely painful and difficult and we were informed during the surgery that my uterus was so thin and distended that it would likely have ruptured at any time in the last two weeks causing the unimaginable and that I would definately not have been able to carry another child safely. We feel so blessed that Jacob was protected and I am very thankful to everyone for your prayers and well wishes which I truly believe helped protect him in the womb. Our family is now complete. I have been so eager to post his safe arrival and I couldn't wait to hear about all the other new arrivals while we were gone.

Whew! so glad to hear evrything went well for the delivery and will pray that you heal well now. you may want to try using wheat germ or sesame seed oil on your scars once healed to keep them from being problematic down the line ( not for aesthetics, but for health reasons). Enjoy your sweetie and babymoon! Congrats!
