Well, here I was only one week away from going to the hospital - and boy was I ready.

On Saturday October 8th I was dropped off at the hospital, got checked in, was given a bed in a room with 3 other ladies.  One had gone into labor at 35 weeks 10 days before and her baby was  still in NICU, the other two were hospitalized for complications in pregnancy.  Only I was there just waiting for them to give me my c-section so Andrej and I could go home.

Monday morning I was informed that I would be having the c-section the following morning.  I was first in line.  I was wakened at 6am, and began being prepped.

Somewhere around 8:15 or so I was taken to the operating table.  The doctors were awesome!  They explained every little detail of nearly everything.

I literally felt them taking Andrej out of me - what an incredible feeling that was.  And as soon as they cleaned him off he was placed in my arms - something that I missed with Robi.

He was born on October 11th at 8:48am weighing 7lbs 11oz and was 20 in. long.

I spent the rest of the day and all night in the post-op room.  By morning I was expecting to be moved to the maternity ward, but L&D there is something akin to Grand Central Station.  Because it is one of a few hospitals that does leave the babies with the mothers all night - and is highly acclaimed for its c-sections - it is crowded it deliveries.  All night long I would hear a woman yell out, followed by a baby screaming.  *grin*

By early afternoon, a woman, who had just given birth, was laying on a bed in the hall nursing her new-born baby.

Following the c-section, I spent 5 days in the hospital.  It was a great stay and I came home very rested - which has aided in my quick recovery.

Andrej sleeps well, and Robi loves his new brother.
