Peanut Update

Hello Everyone!

I am finding out new things day by day about what happened on Sunday.  Peanut was transverse, so there was no way to try to get her to turn after my water broke and we didn't know that she wasn't in the correct position before hand.  Because of her positioning though, it made the Cesarean very tough for the doctors.  RacDad was there with me and he said that it was very surreal to see four hands working around inside my body, trying to retrieve Peanut.  She gave them quite the fight.  That is why it took the doctors an hour and a half to do the repairs and get me out of surgery.  That is also why my recovery is taking so long.

Things are getting better day by day though.  Today I was able to get out of bed by myself to go to the bathroom.  I was also able to stand by myself to take a shower.  I guess it's the little things that you can take for granted that can become such big milestones.  I'm still having a hard time managing the pain.  Yesterday, they thought that I was getting an infection because of my elevated temperature, white blood count and heart by blood pressure was low too.  So I was started on a new IV and had fluids and antibiotics all day yesterday and all day today.  Luckily, they took the fluids off tonight so I can have a little freedom between antibiotic drips.

Peanut is perfect though.  She has great coloring and has only lost a few ounces in the last few days.  She nurses like a Pro!  She latches on perfectly every time and I have not had any pain with it.  I never knew that nursing could be easy from the start.  I always had at least 6 weeks of really bad problems nursing my first two...but it's was worth sticking with it.  I will try to get a few more pictures up for you all to see soon.



  1. Congratulations on the little one! Wishing you a speedy recovery!

  2. Prayers for your speedy recovery. Congratulations again-your peanut is beautiful!

  3. Oh so happy that things are turning out to be okay for you guys! I had difficulties nursing Buggie and Lady Bug had absolutely no problem from the start. It is amazing how different our kids can be from the beginning, huh? Hope things continue to get better for your recovery!


Feel free to leave me a note! I love hearing from you!
