Hey Everyone--Here goes the details of probably the longest day ever yesterday. Everything started well and we got into the operating room very fast and got the c-section started. I think my nerves were at an all time high yesterday. They really had to dig to get those babies out and it was amazing watching them pull each one out and see how big they were. I have only gotten a glimce of them as of yet. They moved them into the next room and then up to the NICU. They were not put on any oxygen and they are doing great. They have all eaten and from what I hear they are ready to be released out of the NICU to our room. Now lets get into why I have not seen or held them yet.
I got into my room yesterday at 1pm and unfortunately my uterous was not contracting the way it should so my bleeding was too much. By 4pm they took me back down to the operating room where they put me under and packed my uterous with sponges to stop the bleeding. I was given 2 units of blood and was back in recovery by 6pm last night. I was then moved down to labor and delivery to be monitored more often. I have been given shots, blood checks, IVs all night long. I am still down in the labor and delivery area and will stay here until the sponge is removed later today. If the sponge is removed and there is no bleeding then I will be able to go back upstairs to a room and see my babies.
I am so very sore right now. They really beat me up this time. Hardest section I have ever had. I couldnt write much last night because the pain meds are so strong they make me tired.
I will keep posting today as things happen but I am thrilled that I have 3 babies that I will be taking home with me...I just need to get my hands on them for now. David has been visiting them regularly and my doctor says that what I am going thru right now is very normal when a uterous expands that big. Thank you everyone
