Juliette Whitney is here!

I had Juliette yesterday morning by c-section. She weighed 9lbs and 2oz and was 21 1/4 inches long and absolutely perfect. We are all home from the hospital tonight and I could not be happier. This is my third c/s at the same hospital and I could not be more unhappy with the experience. I had to be put in a double room with another c/s mom and it super sucked. When my ob's office came to check on me today they were absolutely shocked they did that. My actual ob came after work today to apologize and said that if I was up for it he would let me go home. I almost jumped out of the bed and yelled Yes! Juliette was doing so well, and her ped is a personal friend, so he agreed to release her as well. Baby fussing more later with pics!

40 weeks a 4 days pg - so ready to be done!

Bumping because I don't know how to edit the title. Smile
I really was ready to go home the second day. I can take painkillers and lay around just as easily at home. Smile I still can't believe that I had to share a room. The lady next to me was a FTM and had a ton of people come to visit her, she also had a rough birth experience and was in a lot of pain so she was calling for a nurse all the time. In addition to all that she was having a hard time nursing and called the lactation consultant in several times. She also turned on the overhead lights about 5 times during the night to do various things. I don't begrudge her any of that, it was her birth experience as well, but I will be composing a very pointed letter to the hospital admin about how miserable my experience was. I will also be going over my detailed bill with a fine tooth comb to make sure that the hospital did not charge me for one asprin that I didn't take. Furious doesn't even come close to how I feel about the whole thing. I'm so sorry to dump here, but you guys can understand how this really did detract from my birthing experience. Thanks for listening to all that.
