Just a quick note while I convalesce. Rachel came a knockin' early on Friday morning! 10 days before from due date is not a bad thing, thank you, Lord!
Drove myself and the boys to the hospital with contractions every 3 minutes. The hospital is 45 miles away (1/2 of those are on the interstate)! Foolishly, I sent my husband to work...well what drama is in "he drove me to the hospital"? LOL! Yeah, I'm crazy like that!
The preparations for a the c-section went like clock work. However, the surgery was a difficult and long one as there was a lot of scar tissue and adhesions from the last two deliveries. Suffice it to say, I was well relieved to hear baby Rachel cry out! She weighed 9 lbs and 1 oz and measured 19 1/2" long. Boy did that ultrasound technician get it wrong! What happened to 6 lbs 15 oz! Someone needs to get some more training!
Recovery is going slowly as I developed an infection and am supposed to stay off my feet.
I was blessed with a sweet little girl who sleeps for long periods of time. Last night she woke up twice and not with crying but the smacking of lips as if to say hey mom, I'm thirsty. 'Scuse me while I go back and rest.
