Now that the swelling is gone, the hormones have leveled out and I am getting more than 2 hours of sleep…I finally have time to write about Bella, and not cry:)
Between finishing the nursery and wrapping things up at work, the last few weeks of my pregnancy flew by. Since we knew the exact date we conceived and exactly how far along we were, we scheduled an induction just a couple of days before my due date. This is the last picture before we left for the hospital...in the snow!
Now, I had no idea what to expect with a c-section. It wasn’t planned and no one really expected it. I have experienced a lot of physical pain in my life, but the pressure and pulling of them getting her out was one of the most painful experiences yet. She was so far down that it took some muscle by my doctor and another doctor to get her out. But I was never worried. My doctor is a childhood friend and provided the reassurance this first time momma needed through both my pregnancy and delivery.
Bella Mae arrived at 5:15 pm on February 21st at 6 lbs 11 oz and 18 inches long.
