  • Hi there, so sorry for the delay in my post. It's been busy and I just don't get downstairs to the computer much since Baby Lila has joined the family.

    A couple nights before my booked c-section I began having contractions. They were regular and I had them for 14 hours straight. First every 7 min then every 5 min. I saw my OBGYN the day before my c-section. He right away wanted to get me in to do the c-section because of my cerclage in place....but there was no beds available on the unit. Sooo, he sent me home and told me to take a warm bath and have a glass of wine. I went home and did this and wow, presto my contractions slowed and stopped. I just came in the next day for my booked section and it went well. They had some trouble getting my placenta out as it was stuck in the top horn of my bicornuate uterus and the baby had been in the other half. Baby Lila arrived on Aug 7th and she came out crying! She weighed 5lbs 15 oz and was 19 & 3/4 inches long. She is soo beautiful.
    I will try ans put up a pic. I was only in the hospital for 48hrs and went home quickly. It was so nice to be in my own bed.

    My daughter Annalise is adjusting fairly well. She is showing some testing behavior but is in love with her new baby sister. It is so beautiful to see the love she already has for her. I imagine the jealousy will show at some point but so far so good.

    Lila had lost a lot of her wt the first week and the doctor has been following her closely. She struggled with the Breast Feeding and still isn't perfect at it. She gets tired quickly and trying to get her awake to feed the first week was very difficult. Even to get her to drink my expressed milk in a bottle was difficult.

    She is now past 6lbs and doing much better. I see the doctor again this week. I also had to go on antibiotics because my incision became infected. That was not fun, i had a fever for a few days of 102-103. I am feeling much better now.

    ...i will have to post the pic later, Lila is starting to fuss...gotta go!

  • Congratulations ME! I was wondering when we would be hearing from you! I am so glad your precious baby is here and that everything went okay. Her and Hope were about the same size! And, we have had breastfeeding issues as well. Now I am just pumping- but at least she is getting breast milk. Can't wait to see pics!
Thank you Mark'sbabygirl!
