Lil' E and Doble are pleased to announce the birth of their new baby sister Razy. The boys love their little sister to death. Here they are giving their first kisses to their new baby.
So let me tell you about the day she was born. D.J. and I went in for the amnio at 7:20am on Monday September 24th. If the amnio results showed that her lungs were developed we would come back the next day for the c-section. I had had an amnio before, but I was still pretty nervous. I had nothing to worry about and felt kind of silly when the whole thing was over because it didn't hurt at all. Maybe just a little cramping which was due to the needle going not only through my uterus but through the placenta as well. The doctor got his sample which included a little blood from the placenta, but that wouldn't be a problem. They put me on the monitors just to track contractions for awhile. A little while later the nurse came back in to check the monitor and I had had a good contraction and during the time Razy's heart rate was lost. She told the doctor about it and they decided to watch a little while more. About an hour later the doctor came in saying that one of the tests came back saying her lungs were developed, but the other couldn't be done because the sample had the blood from the placenta in it. However, he decided that since her lungs were good to go that we might as well do the c-section a day early. Dang it for me I had eaten at 6:30am and had to wait 8 hours before doing the surgery. So we were scheduled for 2:00pm unless she had another drop in her heart rate. Well 2:00 came and we were bumped because they had had some Emergencies that went before us. However at 6:30pm they wheeled me back to start the surgery.
