We got back from the hospital yesterday. Christina had the baby by cesarean at 3:30pm on Saturday afternoon March 5th, 2005. We arrived at the hospital at around 7am, they had intended on inducing Christina, since the baby was 8 days overdue. However, by the time we got to the hospital, checked in and settled, she was already dilated 7cm. So everyone thought the baby would be arriving pretty quickly.
Unfortunately there was little change from when we first arrived and around 3PM the doctor decided that they would perform a cesarean to avoid any unnecessary stress on Christina’s kidney.
We have been at home for a day now and everything is going great. I have uploaded all of the pictures from the hospital at https://aboutmacbeth.com/gallery/firstdays.
