SIL And Baby Update

Well, my SIL could use your thoughts or prayers. She just had her baby last night after a super short 3 hour labor... pretty good since she is 42 (just kind of bringing those up to speed who may not have read my other post). Anyway, they waited several hours for her to deliver the placenta, but it never came, so they had to do a D&C. Later, the baby started spitting up blood, so they took her to NICU. My MIL said that they think she got some after birth in her stomach, but my MIL tends to get things mixed up LOL I don't know how she could get afterbirth in her stomach when it never came out???, but I've had all c-sections, so.... Anyhoo, at this point they aren't extremely worried, but are running test because they aren't 100% sure what caused the spitting up of the blood. She also won't nurse for my SIL, but I'm thinking this is normal if they have Lydia on an IV feed, because that happened with my daughter, too, and she was just so satisfied with her IV feed that she slept and slept and wouldn't nurse. Anyway, obviously my SIL is very concerned (to say the least)... thanks for reading!

Oh my goodness! Absolutely in the prayers!!!! I hope all works out well for the little peanut and you let us know as soon as you find out anything. I hope she takes to nursing. I tried and tried with my dd, but she absolutely wouldn't do it for anything in the world! I hope Lydia isn't like that.....I love that name! Please let us know!

I will certainly be praying....have you heard anything else? Birth can be quite the bloody experience....I remember when I gave birth to my fourth he was so bloody looking it actually scared me a little. Maybe baby swallowed some of the blood from the birthing process on her way out?

Anytime for a update. How is the baby doing.

I asked my MIL if she has heard anything more, but she hasn't. So, now I'm worried, but hopefully no news is good news!!
