It S A Girl

Tracey - March 13

I've posted on this site quite a bit and I just wanted to let everyone know that I finally had my baby girl last Sunday, March 6th at 6:28 am. My water broke at home Saturday afternoon so we headed to the hospital, where they gave me pitocin to start my contractions and get things moving. After about 15 hours of labor (NO epidural at this point) they decided that I wasn't going to progess past the 7 cm I was at so they took her by C-section. It was the craziest experience of my life. I was really disappointed after 15 hours of hard labor to end up with a c-section anyway, but in the end all that matters is having a healthy baby. I just wanted to let all you ladies know that are getting close that it eventually all does come to an end so just hang in there! Also, c-sections aren't nearly as bad as I was making it out to be. I'm exactly one week postpartum and I feel really good. I kind of baby my incision, but other than that, it's business as normal. Also, there are some perks as well. I can go to the bathroom without any pain, and my bleeding has been very light and in fact has almost stopped already. I know everyone fears the idea of a c-section, but I can now tell you from personal experience that it really isn't something to fear. So ladies hang in there, be strong because the minute you hold your little one in your arms for the first time, all the agony of the last 9 months just disappears. My little girl is happy, healthy, and absolutely adorable (ok, so maybe I'm a LITTLE biased). Good luck to everyone and thanks for all the good support I've gotten from this site!

I am very happy to hear about your little girl..everything that you say just makes me want to have my baby already...I imagine that when you have your baby you want all the world to know that you are the happiest women in the earth! I think that is how i am going to feel and I am not a mother yet!! hopefully everything comes out good for me too!! Congrats again!
