I’m a Mommy!- Even More Pics…

I'm a Mommy!- Even More Pics...
Hola Chicas,

Lawd… there aren’t even words! I’m physically and emotionally drained, but have fallen head over heels in love with someone I just met yesterday!

To make a very long story short, my birthing experience was not at all what I wanted or expected, but such is life. I went into labor on my own, stayed at home for a while to make some progress without intervention, and arrived at the birthing center only to learn that despite the hard and frequent contractions, I hadn’t dilated much. They started me on Pitocin to move things along (which produced horrendous contractions without breaks in between– I knew this ahead of time, along with the other side effects and really didn’t want it). I was a total G though. With the help of hubby, my mother and my mother-in-law, I breathed through the contractions without tears, moaning or screams. But the pains became intensified after the breaking of my water and the introduction of Pitocin, so I requested an epidural. After the epi was administered I was able to rest– I had already suffered through about 13 hours of unmedicated BACK labor! It’s just as horrendous as women describe. It felt like charlie horses in my back.

At 8cm, I stopped dilating and my cervix actually began to swell. Apparently sister girl was facing the wrong direction, so while she was trying to work with me to make her grand entrance, my body just wouldn’t allow it. Later, I’d also learn that she was an ounce shy of 8 pounds and 21 inches long! 8 pounds??!! Probably due to all the strawberry pancakes. Needless to say, they started talking C Section, which resulted in me balling my eyes out. After talking out the pros and cons and getting over the disappointment and feelings of failure, I agreed and 30 minutes later I was face to face with the little diva.

She was born on 8/29/2010 at 2:20 am. Unlike me at that age she has a head full of hair! She’s my heart and I can’t stop staring at her. We’re doing great with breastfeeding and watching her and hubby together is truly remarkable. My recovery is going well and I feel okay.

Thanks ladies for the well wishes, donations, kind words and prayers. I read through your comments to the ‘In Labor’ post while in labor for motivation and to help keep me positive. You all played a bigger role than you’ll ever know! So, to all of the CN.com honorary aunties, little miss Gia Nicole has arrived and she is ridiculously precious. I couldn’t be happier or more excited.

Love you guys,
Nik

    Welcome to the mommy and C-section club Nikki.You are all well, that's what's important.I delivered twins via C-section, I know how you feel. God Bless you all.

  • Stephanie says:

    What an honor you have given me and the CN.fans to share in your blessed event. Gia Nichole is super-duper cute and so alert! You're so strong Nikki.

    I had an emergency C-Section with my fourth child and only son. This was after watching Birthing shows on TLC for almost 6 months! IDK, God determines our birthing experieces because He breaths that breath of life in that itty-bitty reflection of Him. It's all amazing and good.

    Thank you for sharing. God Bless You and your family. BTW-Grandma looks FABULOUS!

    Congrats Nik! She is such a BEAUTY! I too had to have a C-Section because my water broke right as I approached my 9th month and my daughter was breech. Although my cervice was dialated, I guess she was comfortable and not at all interested in gracing the world with her presence. Everything turned out wonderfully and I never had to experience labor with her, as they had me choose the day I wanted her to be born and they perform the c-section that day. Thanks so much for keeping us connected and you can bet we all felt like we were adding a new addition to our own families, in essence we are…THE CURLYNIKKI FAMILY. Take some time off and bond with your Blessing! You, the hubby and little Ms. Gia Nicole will continually be in our prayers. You can bet we will be here when you return ;~).

    That's okay, honey girl, she's here and healthy. I just knew that my children would be born natural, well my son was breach, and the doctor broke my water before she checked me. So I was sad at first but like you our childrens health are most important. I breastfeeding him and he is a healthy 12 year-old. My next one was natural birth. Wish you all the very best, she is so adorable, and I'm sure will continue to be a job. Just keep staring at her in amazement of what God has done. He knows every hair on her head, and her formed her in your belly. She's women.

    absolutely beautiful. congratulations. btw, back labor very common with babies facing OP (looking up toward ceiling) instead of OA (looking down at floor with you lying down). and you shouldn't feel like a failure because when babies are OP, the narrowest part of the head is no longer presenting in the birth canal, and it's much more difficult to push her out, especially if she's your first. Don't feel bad at all b/c now you don't have to deal with urinary incontinence, bladder & rectal prolapse later in life (very bright side of c-section πŸ™‚

    What beautiful baby! Congrats to you and your family! Sorry your birth experience wasn't exactly what you envisioned. About the C-section there is a slightly longer bounce back time, but at the risk of getting a little racy, there is an up side. Things *down there* will remain closer to the pre-pregnancy state–if you know what I mean. Not having someone's head and shoulders tunneling through makes a difference. Know what I'm sayin'. LOL

The most important thing is you're both well. You just have to take it easy for a few weeks to heal up properly.

    I just wanted to say "Congratulations on being a new mom." Even though I haven't entered motherhood, I want to wish you well. I know you will be an AWESOME MOM.
    One of my greatest childhood memories, were the times that my mother and I shared while she did my hair. Often times, I would get frustrated with the tug and pull of my thick hair but would love the results. We would spend that time having "girl talks" about school, boys, etc. So, as your daughter gets older, you should do the same. Again, congrats and enjoy the wonderful moments with your beautiful baby.

    Yea Nikki! She is beautiful. Recovery from c-section will be fine, just take it easy. Lots of time relaxing and snuggling with little diva! You and hubby will be doing a lot of adjusting the next few weeks. Just remember to ENJOY this time when she is so small and precious – it is soooo short in the big scheme. Congrats!

Congratulations to you and your family and God Bless you. I don't have any children yet, but as a word of advice, since you are recovering from surgery try to take all the rest that you can get. You won't be moving around too much right now, so sleep as much as you can. You'll know why later πŸ˜‰

    She looks precious. I think she looks more like you than you think. We'll see as she grows.
