Hey ladies! I figured since my last update about my little one was so drug-induced and freshly out of a C-section, I would give you a formal update. Dani River Register was born May 15th at 4:31 pm via early c-section. She was 7 lb 4 oz and 18 inches. My water broke Sunday in little spurts and I made it to the hospital two days early just in time for contractions to be 1 minute apart and pretty strong. They decided to admit me and take the baby almost immediately. I didn't honestly have time to panic or get emotionally distraught (THANK GOD) and I sat holding my husbands hand while I listened to them taking the little tiny girl out of me and tying my tube. I was out of recovery with only a little touch of pre-eclampsia blood pressures in under an hour. I was up walking and de-catheterized in about 6 hours and the next morning I got myself up without help (though extremely painfully) and held strong through the day. My only complaint about the whole process other than the pain is that being in the hospital bed for so long caused my tailbone to hurt so badly that I was in tears. I am still hurting pretty badly but I have been out running errands with my mother and husband and child(ren!) and seem to be doing ok I am glad to never have to be pregnant again, but I wouldnt trade the tiny little wriggling angel that I have for anything in the world. Oh--I pretty much demanded that my IV be removed on Monday afternoon and that I be allowed to go home on Tuesday, as my mom is a nurse and is good at wound care. I am not sure how to use the pic cut tool, so I will just post three of them.

I totally did tubes at the same time as having the c-section for my twins, too. We're still going to get Russell under the knife, too. We are firmly of the "we're done" variety. :)

She looks absolutely, positively beautiful, and so do both you and J. *hugs*

congrats!
