I had a normal pregnancy. This was my 5th time doing this, so I knew exactly what to expect! I knew what recovery from delivery would be like, I knew how to breast feed, and I knew what life with a newborn was like. We did not find out Sammy’s gender before birth, so the big gender reveal was the only surprise we were expecting!
I had to have a c-section with Sammy (because of previous c-sections and a thin uterine scar). I went in to the hospital early in the morning on August 23rd, calm, and ready to meet my newest son or daughter! We were very excited, and felt completely prepared.
All went smooth with the procedure, and I was able to watch the OB lift him from my stomach. He was facing me, and I think I was the first one in the room to see he was a boy! We were so excited, another healthy baby, he looked perfect!
The pediatric nurse at the birth took him to the other side of the room to make sure all was well.
