In the wee hours of the morning on April 17th, Chris and I made our way to Morris hospital. We checked in at 530a.m. The time flew by and by 730a.m. I was walking my way to the O.R. I was a bit nervous to have the spinal, but it went in with out a hitch. It was such a bizarre feeling. My butt went numb before my legs did... it was weird! By the time Chris made his way into the O.R. the doctors had already started the C-section. Next thing I knew the 2 doctors were "violently" pushing on my upper abdomen in effort to get Austin's head out! It was an odd feeling to not feel but know that my entire body was being shook around. I laughed so hard I cried when they did this. I didn't know any other way to express my emotion... So I laughed! Dr. E and T said that was a first! Next thing you know, here came Austin. He came out screaming, my reaction..." OH HE IS PISSED!" the doctors then replied ... " YES HE IS PISSING!" such a great visual I suppose. His apgar was 8 and 9. I am not sure how much time had passed before a nurse came in to tell me how much he weighed.... 9 LBS 7 OZ and was 20 inches long. If I could have felt my legs I would have fallen off the table! I was still having my tubes tied when they came in.
He is such a good baby and my recovery has been great! This time they did not use staples or any stitches on the outside of the incision. So I did not have that discomfort. Well he is starting to stir. I will leave you with one more picture of my beautiful baby boy. Thanks to Jan to made his great hat. I will have to post the link to her Etsy site when I have more time.
