View Full Version : WindMillSongRanch Offline-going into hospital

Well, my nerves have got the best of me, and after a post doctor's appointment phone call (always think of ?s afterwards) they are going to admit me early for monitoring. I hadn't posted before, but my cesarean was going to be scheduled for the 16th or 17th, and after seeing low fluid levels today, the doctor moved it up to Wednesday...causing me more concern, even though she said baby was okay right now. This has been a quite traumatic (for me, mentally) pregnancy, especially after finding out the chances of another Abruption happening-what happened with Gabriel, thus causing his severe Cerebral Palsy. Things have been going okay physically, it's just the mental strain that I've been under.

Soo, I'm packing quickly, and trying to get the boys to where they need to go, and then I'm heading to the hospital. We may still plan for a Wednesday delivery, possibly even tomorrow, if the Viacord kit comes tomorrow.

Have fun at Breyerfest, for those who are going, and for those who aren't-maybe we will see each other next year, :grin

I think I missed the send off party but you already knew earlier this week I was checking on the "harvest of your crop" :lol

Keeping my fingers crossed for you that all goes well and you get some much needed rest and relaxation (if that is possible)

Olivia Rose was born on Tuesday, July 14th 2009 at 12:18 pm. She weighs 6 lbs, 6 oz, and is 19 inches long. She is in the NICU right now, because she has spells of breathing quickly, and requires some O2 through nasal canula (was on a CPAP at first, as is now down to the canula) I was discharged this afternoon, and am home catching up on a few things, but will be spending quite a bit of time up there, until she can come home. Thank you again, everyone, for your prayers and well wishes, they are certainly appreciated, :hugg

Aww, thanks so much ladies :adore :hugg

Okay, here are some recent pictures of her-she turned 3 weeks on Tuesday. S.T.I.L.L. in the NICU, but she is really starting to "come around" and demand feeds every two hours, so now it's sounding like possibly coming home on Saturday, my birthday! :haha I hope this link works, it's to the Cradle Roll page at Sanford USD Medical Center, and the best pics taken so far-of course done by the nurses and not me :lol

Aw, she's beautiful. Hope she gets to come home soon!
