Last time that I updated on here it was 11-20-12. it is now 1-15-13.........
Last Shot of me Carring Daniel Reason. 35 weeks
So, She (Marlo) told us that we should just take our time, Go get lunch, Come back for the Level two Ultrasound.... then Head straight to L&D to be admitted..........
Found out they thought the lil chunker would weigh 10 lbs 1 oz...... they were totally shocked calculated that if he stayed in til what they said my due date would be .... he would weigh over 12 lbs. What a shocker! for a chunk who still had 4 + weeks to bake!!!
left there walked back to the 7th floor trying to catch Marlo to see what she would say about the weight and his size... added to what all my complications were. but she was out of the office, so back down to the 3rd floor to get checked in...... got checked in, put into a stupid lil tiny room to get monitored, then shipped from l and d to the perinatal ish area to stay, they kept asking how i felt if anything was worse and it was so then next think i knew they said they would send in a dr and check on me..... when they did they decided they were going to go on and do a c-section.. so, 9 pm i was moved back to L&D to a delivery room to be set up and watched. He wouldn't stay on the NST so I got to try a new thing..... called a Beacon........ it has sticky tabs that they put on your belly, its about 5 of those i believe its then runs to a lil thing that has lights and shows if it is connected or not and shows his heart beat which travels through the air waves over to the nst machine which has the stand like part plugged into it which make it read the one on me. super cool cause you do not have to lay in a certain position, or pray the baby stays.... no having to have all the pressure on you from the having to have the belts so tight on you... only odd thing was that to get a great connection.. they pretty much take sand paper to your skin haha felt really funny!
They put an iv in.... shoved in tons of different meds and things, that only took about 5 sticks. Then... i found out they did NOT have my signature on the fix me papers any where..... which means, i was too late........ has to be 72 hrs signed before you have a premature baby, and 3 months i believe before a full term..... Lets talk about aggravated, frustrated and the last person you wanted to see at that moment. I was VERY ugly!!! finally they decided that from the head man over the hospital ... that if I signed and wrote out that i under stood it all...... that i could go on and get it done I would be the EXCEPTION to the rules and regulations they have to stand by...... YAY ME! haha.
So we were told first around 5 am we would have a baby.................. then we were told around 7.... then around 8........... then finally we were told 9 am i would be taken back........... and I was!!! WOOHOO
I was more nervous and fearful giving birth to Daniel in the OR having a C-section... than i was when i was vaginally delivering Gabriel, and actually more than when i was rolled into the OR to be put under and give birth to Ezekiel.
Took forever to get things settled and me adjusted in there ........ and when I finally was, and Daddy got to come in........ this is what I saw........... the whole time they were slicing and dicing me....
I didnt get to hear Ezekiel cause i was put under, Gabriel was soo quite when he cried cause he was so tiny.
But My Daniel Reason..... He let us know he was there.... A happy healthy baby boy... Did i mention he was a chunk??
Daniel Reason Mahanay
10 lbs 5 oz
Born at "36" weeks
Our newest member! Our Newest addition to our Pride and Joys....
While he and daddy were taken out of the OR to get him checked and all that good stuff. I was getting cut tied and burnt =) After 3 beautiful boys, I was ready for this moment. The moment knowing that I will not have to worry about leaving my boys behind because of a horrific traumatic 3rd complicated pregnancy. Knowing that It will be our own version of My three sons =)
knowing that Unless GOD really really really wanted to keep proving doctors wrong....... and to keep letting me get pregnant......... that... I wont get pregnant again...... It was truly annoying how many drs and nurses questioned my sanity of having 3 sons and not trying for the golden ticket and getting a daughter............... I just dont feel like i need a girl to feel complete..... to be happy. I was never supposed to even be pregnant anyways and now here I am 3 beautiful boys......... that have stolen my heart.......
So, Daddy got to bring Reason back in to me and i got to kiss him before he left to go to ISCU, (infant special care unit)
Again I didnt get to hold one of my babies before they had to be rushed out.
but really he was good..... nothing was that bad or that wrong. to be so "early" not that it was that early... but, he didnt have the issues we were all expecting. he only had the "diabetic" issues that are normal.
here we have, Mommy Holding Daniel for the first time, Mommy giving him his first bottle feeding that he did wonderful with. and hes 1 day old in....then Daniel in his Car seat for the car seat test that he passe with flying colors, 12-9
Daniel ready to go home in the following car seat pic with his sock monkey blanket, and then Our friend Melinda The nurse Karen(oh nurses names were a trip!! the ones that we heard the most were Karen and Ashley! TRIPS! family names of members that are angels over Daniel from Keith's side) and then All my loves home and happy under one roof!!!
Been home and settling in for quite a while now.... Its taken 4 weeks home with Daniel for Gabe and Zeke to start warming up to him and realizing that not Daniel or mommy and daddy will be leaving... and to get back to our routine. Thank Goodness!
Our Reason at Christmas........ =)
