    Carrie and Scout's Space



    Her birthstory:
    Scout’s birth story

    Name-Scout Eleanor Presley S-------
    Weight-6lbs 10.5oz
    Height-18.9
    Time-4:49pm CST
    Date-Jan 28, 2008

    On Monday, January 28th, I went to work as usual. I was 37 weeks, 5 days along and 10 days from my scheduled c-sec date. I taught my 1st 3 class periods and went to the bathroom at lunch time. I noticed that I had a little bit of leakage, but really thought I was peeing on myself. I ate my sandwich for lunch and went into my next class, which is a tutoring class. I help another teacher in her class. I had to go to the bathroom in the middle of that class and noticed that my pad was pretty full of what I still thought was urine. So, I took it off and went to the school nurse to ask her if I could have another one. I told her what was going on and she said she would give me one, but she would feel better if I would call my doctor’s office. So, I did. Of course, they told me to come into L&D (the cure for everything once you are full term! ) I called DH, who was at work, and let him know what was going on. He asked if I wanted him to come drive him, but since I really thought it was just pee, I told him to stay at work and I would call him when I knew anything. I left work around 2PM.

    I drove myself to L&D (not feeling any strong contrax, but everyone made a big deal about it!) and checked in around 2:30. The nurse checked my fluid with one of those lovely paper strips and said that while I did have some extra fluid down there, it was not amniotic fluid. At that point, I expected to go home but she said she wanted to check my progress, so I allowed it. I was dilated to 3cm, 80% effaced and the baby’s head was engaged so she wanted to call my doc. While she called him, I called DH. Still thinking it was nothing, I told him not to worry and told him what she had said and that the doc would be coming soon. About 45min to an hour later the doctor came in and sat down to check me. He noticed some fluid pooling and asked the nurse to get one of those papers again. She did and it tested positive for amniotic fluid. So either my body was psychic and knew my water was about to break, or I had been leaking since about 11:45. He told me, “Looks like we’re having a baby today!”

    Another frantic call to DH who was overjoyed and flew up to the hospital at what I am sure was 100MPH! He said later that he was almost hoping a cop would stop him because when else do you have a better reason to speed? It was a good thing he got there quickly because by the time he got there (maybe 20 minutes later) they were already giving me my spinal. It was about 4:20 when they brought me into the operating room. Scout was born at 4:49 and they finished with me at 5:02. For a long time, we thought 5:02 was her birth time because that’s the time we heard them say, but our bracelets told us otherwise later.

    She was just perfect. DH was standing by my head holding my head and he stood up to look over the curtain. I remember asking if he could see anything and he said yes, he could see our daughter. She was here already! At that moment I heard her beautiful cry. I can’t even explain how many emotions ran through me at that moment, but I am sure anyone else who has ever given birth can relate. They showed her to me and then began to clean her. DH got to hold her and then they put her on my shoulder. That first little kiss on her cheek was magical. About that time was when we heard 5:02, and they took the curtain down and got me ready to move into my room. We all moved into our room and I got to sit up a little bit and hold her on my own for the first time.

    DH and I had about 20 or 30 minutes with her alone before we started getting visitors. I was overwhelmed with how many of our family and friends came to see her and us. I was also a little overwhelmed by the presence of so many people as the feeling came back into my legs and I vomited a couple of times. So, while I was appreciative of all of the well wishes, I was grateful when everyone left (sometime around 10PM) and DH and I had Scout to ourselves again.
