**new surgery update at the bottom of the comments**
First off: We had a baby! Sydney Cora, 7lbs 2oz, 18.5 inches. Now for the story...
I started having contractions around 11pm tonight. They were way different than the BH I'd been having and were immediately feeling really crampy and intense. I started timing them and they were 5 minutes apart from the start. After an hour, I called the OB and headed to the hospital.
They took me to triage and started monitoring the baby's HR. Her HR looked good, but they said she was "sleepy" and inactive, so they were concerned. They immediately gave me IV fluid and oxygen, but it didn't get better after about 30 minutes so I had an emergency c-section. The OB said it was a sign the baby wasn't getting enough oxygen, which is why they were concerned.
I got the epidural and the c-section started immediately. The tugging sensations were so weird, but it went very well. They got her out and she looked great! However, she had pooped in utero and there was a lot of fluid with some blood in it, so the OB sent my placenta to get checked out to see what was up with it. H got to hold Sydney for a while, then I got to hold her skin to skin after they stitched me up. After they wheeled me to the PACU, I got to breastfeed for a bit, then a NICU nurse came to check her out again. Her sugars and oxygen are a little low, so they took her to the NICU to hook her up to a CPAP then they hope to feed her once her oxygen is better. Her oxygen is in the high 80s so it's not too far off from the 90s they like to see.
She's beautiful and perfect and we are so excited, although I'm kind of in shock from the crazy whirlwind. Now I hope to get a bit of sleep. I will post pics later!
