Amayah is here!!!!!

Hey ladies.... Well, I saw that you guys were looking for me. I had my little angel on Monday night. Wasn't supposed to happen like that but it did. I went to the PN on Monday morning, and her fluids were really low. Just over 4cm. They started to blow it off like it was nothing, but I basically went off and threw a big fit. So.....they did another test to check the oxygen and blood flow. Im glad they did because they came back as very limited. So, they talked to my regular OB, who was furious that it came to this, and they went ahead and sent me to the hospital to deliver. I was soooooo scared, because it was finally happening. So I got up there and they gave me pitocin. I felt some contractions, but nothing really bad. The doc came in and checked me then decided to do a c-section. I was nervous, but the anesthesiologist was great and my doctor was sooooo wonderful!! Little Amayah came into the world 03/07/05 at 8:22pm, weighing in at 4lbs 13.5oz, and 17.5 inches long. I got a tubal while he was down there. I came home today in a great deal of pain, but baby has to stay at the hospital because she developed a little case of jaundice. Oddly, she is incredibly healthy otherwise. She has been nicknamed 'peanut', because she is about 1/2 the size of all the other babies in the nursery. She is in the regular nursery too. No NICU visits, thank goodness. She is tiny, but so incredibly beautiful. I was unsure about having her for so many months, but one look and I was immediately wrapped. My regular OB actually said that my placenta was shot to hell. Had we waited until tonight to induce, odds are great that he would have delivered a stillborn baby. It was that bad. Thank goodness for my doc.

I hope she comes home tomorrow because being away from her is already killing me...slowly.
Isaiah is loving her to pieces already too.

Anyway, I will be away for a few days trying to stay drugged up and feeling good. I hope everyone is doing well. I want to thank everyone here for so much support and prayers.

Re: Amayah is here!!!!!

Thanks ladies. Wow..... It is such an amazing feeling. I mean, I have a son too, and I remember how that felt. But with this pregnancy, I had doubts clear up until the end. I was scared I didnt have enough love to share with her. I can't even tell you how many times I had adoption people send me stuff. One look.....that's all it took.
She is doing so well, she is even amazing the doctors. Small as she is, she has kept her body temp up, she is eating well (she is a bit lazy at times but eventually she gets it), and is very alert. She even picks her head up moves it on her own. I know some babies do that too, but it is surprising to everyone how strong she is. They have run so many tests on her, because of the IUGR. So far, everything has come back perfect.

Anyway, Again, thank you ladies so much. I don't know how I could have gotten through this without all of you.
