I made the cutest signs to put on the bassinet explaining what we did and didn't want. I had a thread about them earilier in the week.

Anyway, I didn't get to use them because baby ended up being in special care for 30 hours. So, some things just weren't feasible. HOWEVER, my birthplan was wonderful! Every nurse or dr that we dealt with had read the bp and all things were respected! No eye ointment, no bottle or paci (even though he was in sc and on an iv) They let me wait to see if he would be able to nurse with 36 hours before moving to pumped colostrum or formula.

It all went really smooh because of our bp. There were barely any questions about why we wanted certain things and why we didn't want others. We were only told that they had seen "stranger" requests befo re!

So, taking the time to write a bp and even make the signs was very worth it! I couldn't have asked for a better experience!

It is amazing how much better a planned c/b is compared to anunplanned one!

I truly believe switching practices at the end was the best option for me. And even though the hospital was an hour away it was well worth the drive!

Bryce is doing great! We came home saturday evening. He is still kinda yellow and has another billi test tomorrow. He was Coombs+ so they are still watching his jaundice closely. Hopefully tomorrow is the last illi check!

Dear Megan....
Congratulations on your new son! I just logged on and was scanning thru a thread and realized you added Bryce's name! How wonderful.

I have to check out birth stories to see if you have posted there.

Much love and happiness to you and yours!
