This is Olivia Helen Metzger! Born 3/20/2013 at 1:16pm
She weighed 6lbs 11 oz and 19.5 inches long.
I had her via csection because the stubborn cutie was frank breech and we tried an external version to flip her and she was not going to budge. Had her two days before her due date, right after we tried the version. I wanted to go natural but I'm glad my little girl is here and is safe!
I'm doing pretty good. My past surgeries gave me a lot of scar tissue the doctor had to cut through so I was in a lot of pain after... probably more then if I didn't have scar tissue. They really had to work on me to get her out. Definitely took longer than I thought it would.
My husband got to hold her right away while they stitched and stapled me up. I got to hold her in recovery for 15 minutes and then they took to the nursery to warm her up because her temp was low. I got her back a few hours later and started breastfeeding right away. She took to it like a champ! So excited for that too!
I go home tomorrow and am super excited. She has been an excellent baby so far so I'm not worried about that. I love the hospital I'm in and they have given me tons of awesome advice and feedback. I know it will be amazing having her home.
I'll post more pictures later when I'm not busy watching her daddy hold her :-) Love them both so much!
