My baby girl is here! Updated w/pics & more details

post #1 of 37
Thread Starter 
Miranda Dawn was born March 25th at 1:35 pm. She was 7lbs 5oz. I had already decided a repeat c-section was going to be best for us, and I am very glad I did. Because of this, my ob scheduled a nst for 38 weeks 4 days. I was having very small ctx, and her heart rate would drop considerably with just these tiny ctx. So, she was born 2 hours later. The cord was wrapped tight around her neck 3 times.
The hospital I'm at is supportive of the parents' wishes. (Vaxing, medications, rooming in, etc.)They are pro breastfeeding and Miranda was not cleaned up until we were ready for her to be. She was kept in the OR until I left, and then she stayed with us for at least 2 hours. She latched right on and has been nursing well.
I know it is not an ideal sounding situation for most people, but it has been a better experience than I could have imagined, and it is just what our family needed.

brand new
cutie
baby and me
