Our baby girl decided to make her appearance on Christmas Eve. That was definetly not how I had expected to spend Christmas but, we are so glad that she is here. Big brother is in love with his little sister! <3
We went in to labor and delivery around 3am because I thought my water broke. It turned out not to be my water but the baby wasn’t being as responsive as they would like to see so the dr decided to induce me. The DR broke my water and we waited to see what would happen. Jayli’s heart rate kept dropping with every contraction I had which was starting to worry the DR. They started some pitocin to see what would happen and the baby just couldn’t handle that. Her heart rate continued to drop with my contractions so the doctor decided it was time for a c section. Ms Jayli was born in the early morning hours on December 24th. She was perfect and healthy!
The past 2 weeks have been a little rough for me with the recovery of this c section. I didn’t realize how emotionally draining they could be. But I have decided to be positive and remember that I will heal, this pain won’t last forever!
