Isabella Joy

Hi, everyone! Sorry I haven't been on here to post, but life with a newborn at the hospital (with lots of visitors during the day) sure keeps you from doing those things!

Isabella Joy arrived Wednesday afternoon at 1:35. I was scheduled for a c-section at 1pm that day because she was breech. They did an ultrasound an hour before surgery to check her position and she somehow had wiggled herself head down. But when the obstetrician made the incision in so he could reach her head, she had moved again. She was in a diagonal position and dodged his attempts to pull her out. She's a pistol!! He had to make an extra cut into my uterus in order to get her to come out. All that means is that my next child will HAVE to be a c-section baby because of possible rupture to the uterus if I went into natural labor. The doctor said when she first came out of the womb, she looked around with a disgusted look on her face because she didn't know where she was. Then, when she realized she wasn't going back into the womb, she cried. It's the most beautiful sound there could ever be in the entire world. I couldn't see her, since I was on the other side of the surgery sheet. But that noise...beautiful. I cried. Seriously. And then, after she was cleaned, I got to see her. I didn't hold her until I was in the recovery room. It has been an amazing experience. Surgery itself hasn't been fun, I'll admit that. But having my precious Isabella is wonderful. I'll write more later about the surgery itself and the recovery process here at the hospital. Right now, I'm just waiting to be discharged. Here are a few pictures to enjoy of my beautiful blessing.
