We are so excited to welcome Weston to our family. In these last few days we were wondering if he would ever come, (that is if we would ever get a green light on the c-section). Well, finally on Thursday night he came. As Eliza has mentioned, she was scheduled for a c-section on Tuesday, but ended up not having one due to a fever she couldn't get rid of. Well, the fever finally broke late Tuesday night. She went into the doctors Wednesday to be monitored and talked to the doctor. She said if all went well that night and the fever didn't come back she would shoot for Thursday around 6pm.
Thursday afternoon Eliza decided she should try to get some rest before we went to the hospital, so she laid down with Kambria for a nap thinking she would get at least a couple of hours before we had to check in at the hospital. Not but 30 minutes later the doctor called and said she wanted to do it at 4pm. Eliza didn't get the rest she wanted, but we thought this was great, the sooner the better. So we head to the hospital, check in, they get Eliza hooked up to an IV again, all that fun stuff...only to find out that we have to end up waiting 'till 6:00pm anyway. It turned out that there were a couple of the same doctor's patients laboring so the doctor had to wait for them, nice timing huh?!
Anyway, they finally took Eliza back to the operating room and got her all prepped and put in the spinal block. She said it actually wasn't as bad as she thought it would be. I was able to watch some of the surgery, (I wasn't as woozy as the first time). I was able to see her pull Weston out from her belly, what an amazing thing to see. As soon as he came out everyone in the O.R. gasped at his size. We had no idea and surely weren't expecting such a large baby.
Weston was 10 lbs. 1oz. and 21 inches long. Nothing like the 7.10 Kambria was. I think Eliza was quite grateful she didn't do a VBAC after all.
Dad was able to bring Weston over to mom as the doctors finished sewing her up.
In case you were wondering, the initial D. stands for both Grandfathers, Don and Dirk.What a sad face!
Who would have thought he would have been so big. Eliza sure felt like there was no room in the inn. :)
Kambria is such a proud big sister. She is very protective of her big little brother.Proud Mother. (You did GREAT Eliza, I love you so much)
