  • [SIZE=3]My mom and grandma got here early Saturday morning. After spending most of the day letting them rest after the drive, we went out for dinner. Then I requested a trip to Target since I had been stuck in the apartment all week. At about 11:30 that night I woke up with pains. I wasn’t sure if it was actual labor because I wasn’t contracting with all of the pains. DH decided that we needed to go to the hospital anyway saying the worst they could do was send us home.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=3]We got there around 12:30 and I checked in. They hooked me up to monitor the contractions, which were now coming 5-7 minutes apart. When they checked me I was at 5 cm and said that I was having a baby that night. So, they called my doctor and had him come in. By 2:30 they were taking me back for the epidural. I started getting nervous after I went numb. Haylee Grace was born at 3:01 am and I was out of the OR by 3:55. They kept me downstairs for an hour and then took me up to my recovery room. I was able to attempt breastfeeding soon after delivery, but I was so out of it from the epidural that I wasn’t able to hold her for very long.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=3]We were sent home Tuesday morning, which I was not expecting. I thought I was going to have to stay until at least Wednesday. We are doing great, breastfeeding is great. The only problem we are having with that is that she doesn’t open her mouth wide enough sometimes, so I am sore. The lactation consultant gave me breast shells so that my clothes don’t rub.[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=3]Vincent is adjusting well. He was very jealous at first...he even tried to sit on her while she was in her carseat. He only sat on the edge though, so he was in front of her feet. It was kind of funny, I couldn’t help but laugh. Now, he will pet her head and try to give her hugs while saying ‘a
     
    He also likes to peek at her while she’s sleeping in her bassinet. I think he’s going to do just fine.[/SIZE]
