Ivy Capri is here

Labor :

  I had a very traumatic delivery with baby Ivy- I don't know where to start. My husband and I went in for your standard induction on Sun night and I took 3 pills. We check in at the hospital at 4 pm and the following day they started the pitocin and one 1hr later my water broke and I started to dilated quickly - so they gave me an epidural which worked but then stop working at some point-  I was in soooooooooooo much pain and pushing for hours and couldn't dilated pass 8 cm so I had a second epidural -but the same thing happen. So after so many hours of horrific labor my Obgyn decided to do an a emergency cesarean - as I was getting my spinal epidural anesthesia I was laying there and looking at my husband trying to talk but couldn't and then I had a hard time breathing. That's when my husband notify my the Dr and then I started having stroke like symptoms -they sent my husband out of the room and my Dr said I was suffering from High Spinal  (high spinal from subarachnoid anesthesia if it is performed immediately after epidural anesthesia). To make a long story short 45 mins later after working on me and getting baby Ivy out safely- she was born at 6:09 pm.  She is sooo breathtaking- gorgeous brown hair and greenish grey eyes (which I'm sure will change color soon).
