Labor Story

On July 6 i had a dr apt and my blood pressure was high and it never is. So my dr said i will call you with delivery options later tonight... I was thinking oh weird i am not ready to have my baby yet. I still have work for 4 days! ha ha That's so something a workaholic would say. So we went home and went about our night.... Our dr called and we missed his call. He said i will call you tomorrow. We went to bed and though out the night i wasn't feeling Reg move too much so i was worried. I ate something sweet and laid on my side and so on. So i told Y that we should go and get him monitored. So we did! July 7 in the early morning we were at Timp Hospital and our little guy was perfect but my blood pressure was still to high. So they called my dr and he said we are going to induce you! They were all ready. So around 1130 noonish they induced me and we were on our way to having our baby boy! I was worried. I didn't want piton and i wanted to sit in the tub and relax. But they wouldn't let me with my bp so high. I felt like everything i didn't want i was having to do... At least i had my perfect hubby there to calm me. I was at a 3 when i went in and with the piton i got to a 5 1/2 but that's it! I breathed through my contractions well and stayed with no drugs for a while. They had to break my water and that felt soo weird. So after that i got my epidural. I was so scared. But i had a great nurse, dr, and yoho. Poor y he had nail marks in his hand from ME squeezing soo hard. They had to do it 3 times because of my back problems. But after it got done the last time. All was well and i was numbed up! So we were on our way! After a while they checked me again i was dilating a little but not enough for how strong I was contracting. After a while i could feel my contractions and that wasn't fun. But i just took some breaths! Then around 11 they checked me again. They said i might be at a 6 but the babies head was swelling and he wasn't fitting. So that worried us and them. They called my dr , and he came in and talked to me. He said you can stay in labor and keep trying , but your babies head will keep swelling and you have been in labor 12 hours already or we can get your baby out safe and do a c section. I was really worried... We decided to do the c section to get the baby out. They said that he wasn't fitting. That i was too small and his head was trying to come down but he was swelling. So as soon as i said yes to the c section like 10 nurses came in and prepped me and my anaesthesiologist came to tell me what would go on. he was soo great! I loved him! They took me into the operating room without yoho and i was worried again. But then he came after 15 min. They gave me more meds and then got stared. They stared around 1215 and at 12:33 am Our little guy was here. Yoho got to see him right away , but i didn't.He was a bit of a coned head. lol All i heard was its a boy and he will be a swimmer, he was holding his breath when he came out. Yoho went with him and the dr finished me up. The pressure during the surgery was soo crazy and it hurt. They had to give me more meds cause mine was wearing off. I also heard, yeah he was not going to fit. I was happy we did the c section after i heard that. Just so our baby was safe! Around 315 was the first time i remember getting to see Reggie. Yoho said he brought him to see me after he was clean but i was too drugged to remember.
They then took us to our room and got y a cot and we finally got settled. We had to get all our blood work done, and finished around 6 am. I was soo ichy and they gave me pain meds too. We then got 2 hours of sleep and that was it. Then the visitors started to come and we had to be up and parent our little guy! He was soo good and we were soo happy to have him. Yoho changed all the diapers and held him and was being such a good dad!! He is soo great with him. Our little guy is perfect!
We had to stay wed to Sunday in the hospital and that's the least they would let us! I was soo happy to go home! So now it's the 3 of us and we are soo happy! Our little Reggie Menna Barreto Foz Correa is here! He was born on July 8 at 1233 am! 7 lbs and 19 inches! We love you Reggie and are soo happy your in our family !!! Love you Mom and Dad

I'll have you know that hearing your story before I had Brodrick totally helped prepare me for having to have a c-section this time. (Like knowing i was going to go into the OR alone, etc) It was still no fun- I'm sure for either of us- but we sure do have cute little boys! SO worth it!!
