Emergency C-Section *** Carver is here!!!

Hey

Sooooo.... Monday AM was making breakfast and talking on the phone. I felt a goosh and thought I peed my pants. Abotu 5 mins later felt another and put my hand down and came back with blood all over my hand. My underwear was soaked and it was running down my legs. I quickly called my brother to babysit and my BIL to take me in. (Mom away in NYC, Sister on cruise, SIL and Brother working on Island, and MIL just had hip replacement) I went in, hooked up to moniters and my MW checked me. Well, that started my labour. Ive never gone into labour, so I was quite irrittated. lol. She said I was closed but soft and quite long? About 2 hrs later my OB came and checked me too. I was VERY soft opening and short? So (by this time hubby was in from work) he said he would leave me for an hr then see if my contractions had stopped. If not, C-section. So my hubby left to put my kids with my little sister and came back JUST in time to rush in for the C-section. Sad My beautiful baby BOY was born Sept 26th at 4pm. 6lb 5oz at 34 weeks pregnant!! Smile

He is in the NICU because his lungs arnt 100% yet. I have been pumping but he hasnt had food yet.

Please pray. They are trying to send me home tomorrow, but we have NOTHING ready for this week, no one to bring me in to see him, no one to babysit, no one to take my boys to preschool.... Sad

PLUS... I have nothing ready.... Trying not to freak out...

CARVER CRAIG INDY

*** Forgot to mention, his cord was in a knot when they pulled him out. So if they would have left him, he would have died. Sad ***

Oh wow! Congrats-he's beautiful (and so are you!!)! I hope that you're able to stay in the hospital or maybe you could stay nearby in a hotel or Ronald Mc Donald House (some insurances will cover that, or a portion of the cost of that). Good luck!!

Oh my goodness! Congratulations Megan, great work getting in to the hospital so quick given most of the family being away. And DH was able to get off work, settle the kids and get back in time!

Welcome to the World little Carver!

Sending all good vibes for Carver's stay at NICU and that they can keep you in hospital awhile longer. I guess at least it's the weekend now so your family has a couple days to sort out getting the kids to preschool on Monday and babysitters and all. Hope you're both feeling recovered soon! He is adorable and you look fabulous too

Congratulations! Biggrin

What a big, strong boy at over 6 lbs! It sounds like your body knew exactly what to do when the cord became tangled.

Oh Megan, he's so tiny and pink... and beautiful!! I have to admit I am totally freaked out by your post though... because here I'm thinking I have two months to go still and then I read your story and it really makes you realize that our babies will come when they want to! I'm so glad you're both OK... and congratulations!!

Congrats! What a blessing he was born early considering the knot. He sounds perfect and I hope he's able to be home with you shortly. He's beautiful!
