Meet my Macy Rose

I know many of you have seen pictures or heard the news on Facebook, but I still thought it was important to update here.

Macy Rose was born Tuesday 5/15 at 9:06am. She was 8lb6oz and 20.5 inches long! (Alex was 8lb15oz and 19.5inches, for comparison)

It was a scheduled repeat Csection, however I went into labor on Tuesday morning anyways (looks like we picked the right date). For those keeping score, I was set to be induced with Alex on April 14 and my water broke that morning. Looks like my body just knows when its time!! Anyways, contractions started at 4AM and by 6:30 when we were checking into the hospital they were between 3-5 min apart and strong. I was very nervous but glad I was where I needed to be.

Long story short, surgery went great. My doc removed lots of scaring and adhesions so the surgery actually took 1.5 hours. Im thankful he took his time as it was quite clear this was what was affecting my fertility. My bladder was also relocated and locked onto my left side abdominal wall- he was surprised I never had issues with that. In anycase, Im now full of anti-adhesion barrier and ordered to take it EASY this time in recovery. Why is it so hard to sit around and be waited on?? Seriously having a difficult time with this!

Macy is such a great nurser compared to Alex at this stage. I just couldnt ask for anything better. She is doing wonderful and we are just so much in love. She was worth the wait! I am such a proud mommy of both my babies- Alex has taken on the big brother role with excitement and is loving being my helper. This just makes his seem so much older in my eyes. Our blossoms really are growing up!

Meet my Macy. She's just perfect!

First. Congratulations. She is just beautiful. *gush*

BUT, I did not see anything on facebook. And I had no clue you were already a mommy of 2. So very happy you posted this here. I do slightly recall the girls saying something about you posting a pic of Macy, but I thought it was a US pic. :bonkself:

She is absolutely gorgeous! How funny that you went into labor on the day-of with both of them!! Sounds like you had a great doc and hopefully all their hard work will save you from issues down the line. I hope everything is going well now, a few weeks in!
