So I was able to have the natural birth (at least mostly) I wanted all along. And I am happy that I won't be going through that again. Afterward, my placenta didn't want to detach, so I was taken to an OR, and given a few minutes of sedation for a D & C to remove it all. That was the most restful five minutes of sleep I've had in a long time.
Meanwhile, Brady stayed with Rowan and after I returned, she immediately started nursing. She's been feeding well—nine times since her birth yesterday. She's very alert when she's awake and likes to crane her neck to see/hear what's going on. So far, everything is normal and we're just waiting to see if she goes back into SVT. The cardiologists have asked that she stay in the nursery tonight for continuous heart monitoring (we had her in our room last night) and if everything is ok, we'll be discharged tomorrow afternoon. We'll just have to keep her on a Holter monitor (continuous monitoring) and stay in town for a few days.
Ella will be coming down here with my mom on Friday and I can't wait for them to all to meet! :-)
