She is here!!

I know I have been M.I.A. for months and I apologize for it! I had a very difficult pregnancy but I finally had my little one on July 15! She is two weeks old today and perfect in every way!

I had a pretty difficult labor. Here is my birth story. I ended up getting an epidural but it did not work so they gave me a second epidural and that did not work either. About an hour later both epidurals started to work and I became numb from the neck down. I started to feel extremely dizzy, lightheaded and like I could not breathe. My husband rushed out and got the nurse and doctors. I was put on oxygen. They checked my blood pressure and heart rate. My blood pressure which is usually around 128 dropped into the low 50s and my heart rate also dropped dangerously low. They had to give me 4 epi shots to stabilize me. It was really scary i felt like I was going to die. I was trying not to freak out while this was happening because my 3 year old son was in the room when it happened. Thankfully he was so in to his cartoons he never realized what was happening. After that my very good friend took the train all the way up to Seoul to watch my son for us. She is an amazing friend! They had stopped the epidural and the gradually gave me a little more but it didn't end up working and I was too afraid to have too much again so I ended up delivering with out it. Around 5:30pm I felt like I had to push and told the nurse she checked me and I was ready to give birth...except I couldn't. There was only one doctor and another woman was getting ready to push her baby out so i had to wait until she done. What a long half hour that was! I had to squeeze my legs shut together so I wouldn't give in to the urge to push. The doctor finally came in and she was amazing! At 6:37pm I gave birth to a beautiful 8lb 13oz and 21.5 inches baby girl.
