I started throwing up on Saturday afternoon. I finally got the "flu" bug that was going around the family. Called my doctor and he told me to go in L&D to make sure I wasn't gettting dehydrated. Went in about 6:00pm, they pumped me full of fluids and monitored the baby all night. They were going to send me home around 2am but the babies heartrate was not reacting like they would have liked. It was dropping everytime I would have a contraction.
The next morning they ordered an in depth ultrasound to make sure baby was ok and the doctor told me that if everything checked out ok he was going to send me home. I started crying and getting very emotional, I was so done and ready to have this baby. When the nurse told me the results of my ultrasound were 8/8 I was so dissapointed. She new I was done and ready and asked me "If you had one wish on your Christmas list what would it be?" I said "to have this baby today". She said "ok" and said I am going to call the doctor and let him know the results of the ultrasound and let him know what it going on.
She came back with a big smile and said "Ready to have a baby?!?!?" OMG!!! I started crying!!! I was so relieved. The babies heartrate was still not reacting properly and she let the doctor know that she does not feel comfotable sending me home. He agreed and the c-section was scheduled for 3:00. Well, 3:00 came and went because someone else had an ememrgency c-section and needed to go before me. Finally at 4:00 they came in and got me.
We didn't know the sex of the baby but I always had this gut feeling that it was a boy. When the baby came out my hubby says "Mommy was right!" and I just started crying! I was one of the best moments of my life. I could not be happier to have my little one here already!
