Olivia Rees Nutley
She's here!! She arrived December 20 at 5:53am weighing in at 7lbs 1oz.
Sunday morning we went to the hospital at 10am to get a second dose of induction. Sam was monitored for 2 hours and then they let us go home. She started having contractions and they asked us to come back that night to check up the progress.So we headed home and walked down the hospital hallway towards the elevator. We pressed the down button when Sam said "Oh! Either I just peed my pants or my water broke." We headed back to the maternity ward and told the nurses. We were put back into the room and hooked up to some machines.
Our family arrived in the delivery room and waited throughout the whole process. Even the nurses said that no one stays as long as they all did. After being in labour for 13 hours the doctors said she was ready to push. Then after pushing for an additional 2 hours it was 5am. The movement of the baby wasn't progressing so it was decided that she needed to head to the OR for a C-Section.
We both went down there and the procedure was done. At 5:53am she came out to the doctors singing Happy Birthday. 10 fingers, 10 toes and no weird moles. She's very healthy and so is Mommy.
Recovering in the hospital ward for the next few days was a little frustrating but on Wednesday night we finally arrived home with out little bundle.
The pics are trapped on the camera until we get our main computer back but I'll add them once we can.
