    Big Grin Belle's Birth Story

    Advertisements
    **I hope this is in the right place! If not, feel free to move it!**

    Here's Belle's story! There's not much to it, which is a good thing, IMO!

    On Friday the 15, we found out that Belle was sitting breech. We scheduled an external cephalic version for Wednesday, (an attempt to turn baby to a head down position) and a c-section in case that failed.

    So we got to the hospital around 5 am on Wednesday the 20. We did a bunch of pre-op prep and paperwork, met the doctors and nurses and waited a while.

    Around 8 something I was taken to the OR. It took somewhere between 4 and 6 attempts to get the spinal block done, but it was nowhere near as bad as I expected! (That's the upside to everyone talking about how awful something is! Hehe)

    Once the meds took effect, the doctors tried for a few minutes to turn my baby love, but she wouldn't go any farther than sideways. They brought in DH and proceeded with a c-section!

    Our beautiful baby was born at 10:20 am on June 20. After all of our miscarriages and fertility issues, it is still so surreal that she is here, healthy and ours. I really felt like this day would never come, and now that it is, it's so much more amazing than I ever expected!

    I'm doing well, recovery-wise, and I think that my mystery pains are just about gone! (But I know, I'm only a week out so I have a while to go!)

    Annnd that's about it! Thanks for reading, ladies!
