Just before her first bath
I'll post a full birth story later, but here is a quick update. Piper is perfect. She is such a doll and her siblings loved meeting her. They were so cute. She was born a little over 6 hours ago and I still have not been allowed out of bed. I bled a lot very fast and got really weak. I was given an extra bag of Pit to contract my uterus and had to palpated forever and it was so painful! I got a shot of something and my hemoglobin checked. It came back low, which is normal but they are giving me lots of time so I don't fall when I get up. They finally took my IV out, but now they are switching shifts so I'm waiting for my new nurse. I'm ready to finally get out of this bed!
Aww she is perfect! Wow your delivery sounds like mine, ( c sec for me) I lost alot of blood and was teetering on needing a transfusion. I couldn't get out of bed until the next day either. Had to keep iv in for 2 days (but due to incision reopening) Glad all in all you all are ok! congrats!
I'm sorry to hear you lost a lot of blood and that all of the palpations were painful.
But Piper looks so great and is a beautiful girl! You did well Beth!
