I was induced August 31 at noon at Timpanogos Hospital and had Eliza at 5:59pm. It was an easy labor, after the epidural, and an easy delivery (out she came after 3 pushes!) That's what you get when you have a 5lb 9oz baby with a tiny head! I had an abruption of my placenta (it started coming separated from the uterine wall) and they figured that's why she stopped growing, which is why I was induced.
The next day she was sounding really congested, so the nurses tried to suction her nose but wouldn't you know those little blue bulb syringes are too big to stick in her nose! She started to aspirate and they had a scare until they used a preemie catheter to stick in her nose and suction with a syringe the fluid out. Tyler was with her watching and I was nervous because my biggest fear about her being so little was how she would breathe. Thankfully they pumped a lot of fluid out of her stomach and she hasn't had congestion problems since.
So now, on to the good stuff...pictures:)
Here I am as we are walking out the door to the hospital last Tuesday. Inductions are nice because you have time to do your hair:)
Our happy little family
Eliza can't even fit in Newborn sized clothes! Here I've prepared and tried to be ready and I have no clothes that fit her! Little sleepers are the funniest because her legs end up together in one leg and her arms right up under her chin and not in the sleeves. The torsos swallow her up! Thank goodness she has some hair bows though...
