Moxie's Birth story and pics

Kind of a boring "birth story" -- I had (repeat) C-Section scheduled on 11/11/11. Most hospitals in my state do NOT perform V-Bacs, believing the risks of surgery are lesser than the risks of V-bac complications.

The staff was hoping for 11:11am as her birth time, but the anesthesiologist took awhile to do the spinal. Her birthday was 11:19am. The doctor was livid! It was very uncomfortable. The staff was actually griping about her behavior while I was in recovery.

I'm in loads of pain and I'm not sure my incision is faring well. I think chasing after a 2-year old has something to do with it. I'm only 5 days PP, so I hope things are on the up and up!

Pics of Moxie Adele: (including one of her brother Cable getting to meet her for the first time!)

she is beautiful! and what a smile on cable's face when he met his sister! i'm hoping my toddler doesn't smack his brother! eek!

i'm sorry about your incision issues - can you get someone to come in to help you? you really needs to rest up. i SO know that's easier said than done when you have a toddler though. feel better and heal well!

How cute!!! I love Cable's smile when he got to meet Moxie. *love*

I second getting some help so you can heal. I am kind of worried about that when I get home after my repeat c next week...Jack suddenly wants to be carried up and down the stairs, and he often asks for "up" when I am doing stuff....

Look at all that hair! I love the pic of big bro meeting her. His smile tells exactly how he felt that moment.

I know how frustrating it is with the time. As silly as it is in the grand scheme of things. My DS was born 11/11/08 at 11:13 am after 53 hours of labor. Why in the WORLD couldn't they have put the time back 2 minutes - how would that have affected anything?!

Moxie is a doll though...congrats on your new LO!
