We went to the hospital early Sunday morning and got hooked up to the monitors where we caught her decelling pretty hard. She came back up on her own, and relatively quickly, but it was enough for us to be admitted immediately. We kept waiting to see if she started handling labor better, but she just never did. We decided that the chance of us making it all the way through delivery was pretty poor, so we went ahead with a cesarean. I’m a little bummed, but it’s not what matters!
…and you know what? A cesarean that’s NOT under general anesthesia is just not so bad! Not fun by any means, but way better!
Anyway, before 9 am, we had our little girl!
Meet Addy- 5 lbs, 13 oz and 18” long. She is a PEANUT!
Piper came to see her last night- she kept signing “mommy baby”, and once she realized what was going on, she got pretty excited. She did really good being gentle with Addy, but not so good at being gentle with me… It may be a loooong couple weeks. Not that I blame her- how’s she supposed to know?
…and for the record? No, she did not have a name until this morning…
