Thank You!

You girls are the BEST. I love reading all your comments,you girls say the most wonderful things and you make me feel so good! Zoe has been great,tomorrow is her first check up so we'll see how much she weighs now. As for me,I feel amazing,my body is healing fast and I love being a Mom. I had to have a c-section because my water ruptured and I was like that at home for two days so when I finally went to the ER to get it checked,they told me they were keeping me because Zoe was going to come either that night or the next day. They put me on antibiotics for an infection I had and they gave me something to get the labor going (pitocin). Well,come 4 am and I'm in pain and when they check me they realize I hadn't dilated any. I knew I was gonna be in pain all day because I had been at 1cm dilated for a few weeks and nothing changed,so I got the epidural. They also had to break the rest of my water bag and that made me dilate some. The epidural wore off 3 TIMES. The anesthesiologist had to keep giving me some more medicine. I'd go from being numb to feeling all my contractions and moving my legs to being numb again. And to top it off,the baby's heart rate kept dropping so they would take me off the pitocin. After a while I started getting this pain in my legs and groin area and they didn't know where it was coming from and then the baby's heart rate really dropped so they decided a c-section would be the best thing to do. I got really scared and nervous and I could tell Damian was too. I was shaking uncontrollably and they even covered me with warm blankets but it didn't help. The surgery went by faster than I thought. One scary thing though...the umbilical cord was wrapped around her neck TWICE. My Doctor said she was smart enough not to come out vaginally cause that could have hurt her. My baby knew what she was doing,I can picture her holding on to the walls of my stomach to stop herself from coming . When I heard my daughter crying for the first time an intense emotion that I've never felt came over me. It was UNREAL. My boyfriend came up to me and gave me a kiss and said I did great <3 then they brought Zoe over and all I could do was cry and give her kisses. It's a pretty amazing feeling to be a Mother.

Ahh my your story brought tears to my eyes. I am not a mother yet but I can imagine the feeling you had seeing her for the first time. Prayers are truly a powerful thing because so many things could have gone wrong for both u and baby, but yet u both came out safe.
She is absolutely adorable!!
Thanks for sharing the pics cant wait to see as she grows.
Take care
