Well I am officially the WORST at blogging...but thats ok because I have an excuse! LUCY IS HERE!!! She came into this world on December 27th at 9:54am. She was 7lbs 11oz. and 21 inches. Life is now complete for Troy and I. We had no idea HOW MUCH FUN it would be with a daughter. Yes there are sleepless nights...but who the heck cares!?!?! It's because we are taking care of our adorable little one!
Labor you ask? Well it was 19 hours...started at Target on the 26th in the middle of the afternoon...we headed to Kaiser Lakeview at around 6ish, remember this is 6 at night! Got the epidural which DIDN'T DO A THING AFTER 7centimeters!!! ......I started pushing at about 6 in the morning....and did a good 3 1/2 hours of pushing with no success. We had to have a little help from the doctors and use a vacuum to get her out ( it was either that or a C-Section---no thanks!)Turns out she was also face up....which is considered back labor and is VERY painful as well. Soooo I am hoping to find out exactly what went wrong with my epidural...do a little problem solving..so that by the time we want to have another child this does not happen. Some thoughts could be : they didnt consider my height with the amount of medicine they put in, that my scoliosis played a factor, that the dr. who put it in just didnt do it right....( she tried it 4 times!) . I need a little piece of mind with this situation so that I am ok with getting pregnant in the future!
But so far life as a mom is so wonderful! I am totally weepy at every little thing she does or even little things I read...like poems about kids...or commercials with kids in them. One cannot describe how great it feels to have someone be so dependent on you..to be the only one who can truly calm another little life. :)
So bear with me...I am trying my best to be a diligent blogger....it took me over two hours to post this because the computer wouldnt let me upload images...and when it did it would do funky things to them...its taking a lot longer than it should!! Stay tuned for more to come!
