Labor and Delivery? Try the O.R.
Yes, you guessed it. Bristol Larue came 5 weeks early. I went in for a routine Dr.'s appointment, and they were so concerned about my blood pressure being at 158/108, that two hours later I was recieving a shot in the back and laying on....the operating table. Bristol was still breeched, so I had a C-Section. SCARY! Luckily, I didn't have any time to think about it, so I couldn't be too nervous, but my hands were shaking. Ty and my father in law gave me a sweet blessing right before which I thought about a lot as I could feel the doctors tugging and pulling at my body. BUT, to spare you the gory details, Bristol was born on March 16, 2009! She came out screaming, but has been thus far a very good baby. She spent 8 days in the NICU, but she finally came home today! TyRell and I feel so blessed and are so greatful for the many prayers in our behalf. Bristol is doing better than expected, which I'm confindent has much to do with the blessing that my Dad gave her along with Ty and my father in law soon after birth. She weighed 6 lbs. 5 oz. and was 18.6 inches long. However, her current weight is 5 lbs. 14oz. and one nurse measured her as barely 18 in. long. So, a little controversy on her length, but over all she is a good sized babt for being 5 weeks early!
