Hi all! I am writing this from my hospital room.
Little Eddie made his appearance into the world at 8:01 am yesterday, March 28th. He was 8 pounds and 2 ounces at birth, and last time he was weighed is at 7 pounds 12 ounces and 19 inches.
My Dr. and his staff were absolutely amazing and wonderful and kind and funny and it was by far the easiest C-Sec I have ever had. (he also delivered Colton and Parker)
Sorry the picture is awful... I cant access my pictures until I get home. This was from hubby's phone I think!
This sweet child has a full head of RED hair!! and is just a dream already. Last night he slept from 11:00pm to 5:00am when the nurse came and woke him up (to run tests) and is so sweet. I love the sweet little coo's and sighs he makes! And dont even get me started on that new baby smell... I just sit and hold him and breath in the heavenly scent!
I am nursing exclusively, and he latched on the very first time he tried! Such a champ. He has been with me since he was born, except for a bath and some other tests.
The kids have met him twice now, and just adore him. We all do really! I have some hilarious video of Audrey holding him from my FLip Camera, but it will be a miracle if that makes it to my blog as I am wretched at figuring out how to do that! We are thinking that tomorrow (Wed.) we can both go home.
As far as me, I am doing well! Pain has been minimal... I even held out on taking anything for the first 22 hours... my nurse thought I was nuts!
(TMI to follow, dont read if you are squeamish!)
We did find out that my uterus was very thin at the incision site. This basically means that if I had gone into active labor the chances of it rupturing and me bleeding out were very, very high. (risking death for me and baby) Sorta scary!
I asked if that meant there would be any complications with future pregnancy's and he sorta nodded his head yes. If we were blessed enough to be pregnant again I would have to probably have the C-sec very early to avoid all contractions. But he did say it would be do-able and we would just be pro-active and make healthy choices.
I am relived to know that the option of us having more kids is not completely off the table, but am also feeling so blessed with the family that we have.
I promise I will be adding some pics of sweet baby Eddie soon... he really is just adorable (I know, I am biased!) and I would love to share him with you!
Thank you SO much for all the kind words and well wishes and prayers. It has meant the world to me!
