After nine hours of natural labor and an ambulance ride to a facility with NICU capabilities, Kinsley Addison was born June 18th at 2:11 am via emergency (repeat) c-section. She weighed 5 lbs, 14 oz and is 19.5 inches long. I went to the local L&D because I wasn't feeling "right" and assumed it was because of my blood pressure issues. As soon as they hooked me up to the monitors I began contracting at 8-10 minutes apart. I insisted on a bag of fluids and to stay to rule out dehydration even though the on call OB wanted me to go home. After the first bag of fluids I had progressed from "fingertip" to 2 cm. They decided to do another bag of fluids since my contractions were still far apart. After that bag I had went from 2 cm to 4 cm and the contractions were 2-3 minutes apart. At that point the on call OB decided to transfer me to my regular OB for delivery. By the time the ambulance arrived, I was dilated to 7 cm. Once I finally arrived at the hospital to meet my regular OB, I was fully dilated and ready to push. However, since I was only 36+3 weeks and the amnio had come back showing her lungs were slightly immature we decided to do a c-section.

 

I'm recovering well and even off my pain meds already, but Kinsley has jaundice. We are doing lots of sunlight. She's nursing like a champ, but for some reason she has been at 5 lbs, 7 oz since Monday, so the pediatrician said for us to nurse and then do an ounce of formula after each feeding.

 

Will post pics soon!

Congratulations on your little daughter. How is her lung? Did you need the NICU?

Enjoy your babymoon!

Congratulations!!!  That's so tiny!  My little guy was a little less than a lb. more than that and he seems miniature to me with very little fat.  I'm glad it sounds like you both are doing well!
