Olivia Rae has arrived! Yesterday I went in for my weekly midwife appointment. I told her that the baby was not moving as much and she asked me to do a NST. The nonstress test wasn't reactive so we went for a BPP which found that my fluids, which were at a 10, were only at a 1.2 and she didn't pass any of the test at all.  The drs had me do an emergency csection. They wouldn't induce because they didn't think that she would tolerate labor.  That was not part of my plan but it apparently was a part of a higher plan and my little girl is here safe and sound.

 

She is 6lbs 2 oz, 18 inches long and a sleepy little bean :) She was 35+6 when she was born. Nursing is going well. Csections suck but I'll make the best of it :)

 

Thanks for everything Mamas and good luck to you the rest of your pregnancy, you know I'll be here stalking your birth stories!

 

I'll update with pics later!

 

This is the best pic I could get considering everyone else in my family took pictures and neglected to send some to me, the baby's mama :)

I know this wasn't what you planned, but I find it so heartening to hear stories which could have gone so badly and ended up so well!  Congratulations to you and your family!  So glad Olivia got here safe and sound!

 

(Oh, and congrats on the nursing!)

Congrats mama! None of my babies births went as planned and all ended up c-sections. I know it is tough but I am glad to hear you and baby are healthy. Enjoy your little one! Beautiful name!

DDDC to say congratulations!  I'm due mid-August with a little girl that we plan to name Olivia Mae, so you can probably guess that I love your name choice!

Congratulations!  I'm really impressed that you were so in tune with your pregnancy you knew to get the NST, and got your little daughter safely delivered.  I hope your recovery and babymoon go easily.  Welcome to the world, Olivia!
