I will cut to the important parts....I stayed on bed rest until she was born..spent one night in the hospital being monitored...my kidneys were in full rebellion...my blood pressure had a mind of its own and went up and down like a yo yo.....but our goal was 36 weeks....AND WE MADE IT!
Taylor was born on Tuesday Sept. 21, 2010 at 10:28 pm, she was 6bs 2oz. and 18 3/4 inches long. (all of that equals tiny) I did end up having a C-Section. The doctor nor I either one wanted that but after 14 hours of all the drugs they could give me to make me have her and it didn't work we had no choice. I was so scared going into this to have surgery, however once all was said and done it wasn't nearly as bad as I thought it was going to be.
We were in the hospital until Saturday. When we came home Taylor had a little jaundice and weighed 5lbs 13 1/2 oz. So we had a doctors appointment that Monday to check her levels and we are watching her weight pretty close because she was a preemie and I am trying to breast feed.
Now, she weighs 6lbs and 3oz. and I can't believe she is almost 2 weeks old. It makes me cry to think about how fast they grow, I want her to stay a baby... completely unrealistic I know. She is just the most beautiful little girl I have ever seen. I know I am partial but still. :)
So here are a few pictures:
She was pretty beat up after so many hours of hard contractions.
Going to the doctor.
