  • Baby Aiden Noah made his way into the world 01/12/10 at 8:35 am. He arrived via an emergent c- section due to placenta abruption.

    We arrived at the hospital on Monday evening at 5pm. They inserted the Cervidel to ripen the cervix. The following morning they removed the Cervidel and let me take a shower while we waited on the Dr to arrive and break my water. The nurses started the Pitocin while we waited and everything seemed to be going great. UNTIL.......I sneezed, not even a big sneeze, and I felt something come out down there. So of course I reach down there, expecting that my water had just broke, instead I find that my hand is covered in blood and alot of it. I call in the nurse and she says she has to look, so she examines me and I had passed a huge blood clot. The nurse immediately called the Dr and I could feel myself continuing to bleed. The Dr arrived and did an internal exam and said that there was alottttt of bloody fluid and said that my placenta had abrupted and that we were going for an emergency C-section. I continued to bleed really heavily afterwards and they had me in the OR, gave me a spinal block and had the baby delivered within minutes. The Dr said she made the incision larger than usual because she didn't want to have to waste any time trying to get the baby out. I lost alot of blood in just a couple minutes of time, so I'm thankful that it started while I was here in the hospital as opposed to being at home or work.

    So on to the important stuff...........
    AIDEN NOAH was born 1/12/10 at 8:35am weighing in at 6lbs 4ozs. He was 19 inches long, and his head was 13 inches. He arrived kicking and screaming and totally unimpressed with all that was going on around him. The Dr says I may possibly go home tomorrow or the next day depending on my pain and labwork.

    I'll post pics when I get home.....I have no idea how to do it from this phone.

  • Congratulations on the birth of Aiden. I'm glad to hear that you're okay and that Aiden is healthy. I had a placental abruption with our second daughter and somehow pushed her out because there was no doctor available to do a c-section. It was a terrifying experience that left me in kind of an altered state for a long time. If you need to talk, I'm always available.

    Welcome to the world, Aiden!!
