Thanks ladies for all the lovely thoughts! You guys are so great!
Thanks Christol for being my messenger! :)
You guys, it was ROUGH! Regina's water broke around 10:15 on Wednesday night after a whole day's worth of contractions. We got to the hospital around 11:00 p.m. and she was dilated to 4. She received an epidural around 5:00 a.m. and she was still dilated to 4 at that time. It took her HOURS to dilate to 5 and 6 and then hours more to dilate to 7! Regina's blood pressure was low, Layla's heart rate was low, she was in distress. At about 2:30 p.m., 15 1/2 hours later, the midwife made the decision to call in the doctor and an emergency c-section was in order. I was FREAKING out! I was so scared. I prayed and prayed. But obviously, everything turned out just fine. Layla is perfect. Regina is doing well. In pain, as expected but otherwise she is great. She was SUCH a trooper! She had planned on doing it natural but she was so tired and it was just too much for her to bear. She's disappointed about the c-section but it had to be done. I think they'll be home on Sunday. Rhiannon and Joey aren't allowed at the hospital because of the whole flu thing. No kids under 15 are allowed. So that stinks! They are so excited to meet Layla.
So now what you ladies have to look forward to is lots of baby talk, Layla this, Layla that and tons of baby pics! :)
Thanks again everyone! Love you all!
