We arrived at the hospital just past 7:30am, there was a bit more traffic than we anticipated. However they checked us in very quickly (pre-registration rocks) and took us straight back to the pre-op room. I didn't realize we wouldn't be going to the über nice delivery rooms. The nurses had me change into a gown, took vitals, set up my IV (the nurse in training missed the vein the first time, OUCH!), placed monitors on my belly to hear baby and gave me some horrible nasty tasting meds that apparently reduce nausea. It tasted like sour candy gone wrong. Then we waited. This part felt like it took forever! I was supposed to be wheeled back by 9:30am but they had an emergency c-section come in right before me. While I was in pre-op Nana, Opa & Juju came back to say hi and wish me luck.
Daddy went with Carsyn to the nursery while the doctors finished up with me and moved me to recovery. They brought Carsyn to me very quickly and I was able to hold my sweet baby girl for the first time. Juju and Malek also came in to check on me. I was in recovery for 2 hours before they discharged me to my post-delivery room around 1pm.
Family came by the rest of the afternoon/evening to meet our newest addition to the family. She's super sweet and Ryland couldn't wait to meet her! Right away he wanted to hold her and give her kisses. Carsyn also had a gift for her big brother, a tool belt with tools. However I think Ry was more delighted with Carsyn. :) The second day she had even more visitors from friends.
