We went to the doctor for our biophysical profile on Monday the 19th, and much to our surprise we were told our little one was breech. We then met with our midwife, who discussed our options with us. We decided to schedule a version with the liklihood of having a c-section. Our midwife then suggested we go into the hospital the next day! We went from not knowing when the little one would show up to a whirlwind of emotions accepting things weren’t going as planned, and we’d definitely have a baby tomorrow!
So Tuesday morning rolls around and we head to the hospital. It must have been super busy because we had to wait for a triage bed. 45 minute wait later we were finally given a bed in triage, IV’s started and they put the fetal monitors on. The doctor came in to discuss our options again, and after much thought we decided not to try to turn the baby and just go in for the c-section. We were taken into the OR at about 12:15, and I was given the spinal, and within the next 10 minutes the surgery had started. It was 12:49pm when we welcomed our little one into the world. Our team green turned into team pink as little Avery Mae was born. They finished stitching me up, and Avery, daddy and I were taken to the recovery room.
My recovery was quite well, and I’m feeling pretty good. This was just a start to acknowledging that nothing ever goes as planned with children .
