Going to hospital


Cole Terry was born at 3:40pm on October 11, 2007. He weighed 7 lbs. 1 oz. and was 20 1/2 inches long. It was quite an eventful day, to say the least. Tanya went into the hospital at 6am to be induced. They started her on petosin (sp?) and increased the dose every 1/2 hour. At 10am they broke her water, because Cole's heartrate dropped, but went back up when she moved (he didn't have much amniotic fluid inside, so they put a rod up inside to add saline water and an internal probe to monitor the contractions. They also gave her an epidural shot (took 5 tries!) and so she was having contractions, but couldn't feel them. The baby's heartrate fell a couple more times, but the last time it fell, they checked her and she was 9 1/2 cm dilated. They couldn't get the baby's heartrate up, so they whisked her into the OR at 3:34pm and did an emergency c-section and he was out at 3:40pm....crying and just fine:) Tanya was a real trooper and was calm throughout the whole ordeal! Billy wasn't allowed into the OR, which was upsetting for Tanya and Billy was very upset and worried. But everything turned out just fine and both mother and baby are doing great! He is a very calm baby and rarely cries. Doesn't like to be wrapped up, have his diaper changed or take a bath...but other than that he is nursing great and is either asleep, just looking around or eating. Today is Saturday, and I think they will come home tomorrow. Tanya is up and walking around a little and took a shower last night. She is very tired because they keep waking her up to check her vitals and to nurse Cole.

Here are some more pictures:) Sorry, can't turn them:( And they ended up at the first, not here! (Maybe Tenille can fix it:)
