the Arrival of Savienne on 11/22/11

so.. went out with friends on the sunday night. and made sure to take looooots of walks. even did a 4 block walk for ice cream. mmmm.. ice cream.

on monday the 21, i got some VERY scary calls from the doc. they thought she had water on her brain, and under her skin and in her chest. had to go for another ultrasound at the big scary clinic in the hospital. little did i know, 5 hours later, i would be back again. turned out, the ultrasound was just a good precaution. nothing was wrong with her, they had suspected congestive heart failure, but didn't want to say anything till they checked again.

left hospital at 3, went out for lunch with friend who drove me there, a nd thought the contractions were getting a little stronger. thought nothing much of them. by 5 they had picked up to every half hour/20 minutes pretty regularly. 8 pm rolls around, now they were at 10 minutes apart and hurt like crazy with some back labor. got Caya into the bath and into bed by 9 pm. less then 20 minutes later. i made the call to go to the hospital. they were at 3-5 minutes apart and progressing much faster then they did with my first daughter. called my mom to get on the bus and get here ASAP.

we dropped caya off and got to the hospital by 1030. Called our doula to meet us there. by 11 i was at 10 cm and going through transition. i got the shakes so bad!! and since i already knew my girl was breech/transverse they did a last minute ultrasound and could not find her feet, and she was back to being breech. i sat up after that, and broke my waters all over my doula.

i made the incredibly hard decision to go for the emergency c-section. i was going to try to push, but mommy instinct said something was WRONG! and something needed to be done NOW! so by midnight i was on the or table waiting for everything to begin.

by 12:47 she was out and the nurses told us that she had the cord wrapped around her neck 3 times, and was tight up tight to her placenta. so had i pushed, we could have caused a lot of issues for for of us. i was into recovery with the shakes so incredibly bad.

so on 11/22/11 at 12:47 my wee girl, at 9 lbs 2 oz. 21.5 inches long made her entrance into the world!

Welcome Savienne Odette, into our family and into the world.
