Uncle of Two UPDATE with Pics
Well yesterday May 31,2008 my sisters water broke at 0830. As you all may remember she is a very high risk pregnancy and they attempted to do a cerflage on her, but it failed. She has had cervical cancer twice as of now and this was her last attempt for a second child.
So we take her to the high risk pregnancy of the hospital she stayed at and they checked her in, got her a room and we were off. By the time we arrived it was 0930 and her contractions were already 3 minutes apart. Once she was checked in and had all her IVs and other little things taken care of we played the waiting game. Around 1000 her doctor came in and checked her to see how far she was dialated and she had so much scar tissue from all the surgies that the baby could not break through to make her dialate.
They tried giving her another medication, i believe it was citatex(spelling), any medical people here correct me please, it was supposed to help relax the female parts and help her dialate. That failed and put her through so much pain.
They tried that medicine twice neither time it helped loosen anything up or help her dialate so they tried some more waiting. Well around 2030 she was starting to feel so much pain, even with her epideral redosed 4 times, that they started to worry. They decided to redose her epideral one more time, about that time they lost the babies heart beat and they really freaked. They finally got it back and everything was stable, so once again we waited.
Finally around 1145 everyone had enough waiting and after the baby crashing and stabalizing again, they decided they all had enough and they went into c section mode.
At 1233 on June 1, 2008 Ella Grace Maines was born a healthy, 6 lbs 5oz bundle of joy. She has very little hair and has great vocal cords already. I will try and get pics with my phone today when we go back I am just waking up since after everything I didnt get home til almost 0400 after getting there and 0930 the previous morning.
