So after an otherwise totally healthy pregnancy, I went from "will deliver as expected" to "we need to induce" to "we need to preform a c-section" in less than the course of 12 hours. Nobody saw it coming so there really aren't words to describe how thankful I am that everything turned out well, despite the suddenness of it all.
My health is okay, but could be better. I'm on blood pressure medication but healing well otherwise. Staying in the hospital was like being trapped in a vortex of stress. The staff weren't at fault, in fact I'd recommend the facility to anyone expecting- they're all very attentive and provide excellent care. I was just tired and stressed out and feeling trapped there, plus you know how well "try to relax" works as advice.
Bab is healthy as can be & our neighbors definitely know we have a baby now (those lungs! LOL)
As of now, everything is going well- all of us just need rest & time alone for a while.
