Miss Z's First Month

February 17, 2012

Miss Z and I over a month ago and now I have a 1 month old baby.  I can't believe that a month has already gone by.  We love being parents!  Miss Z is very content and happy baby.  Miss Z loves to cuddle, hum, grunt, and now starting to squeal, she also loves lots and lots of kisses.  Miss Z is now staying awake a lot longer and we have fun playing starring contests with her.  Miss Z is a binky baby who loves loves to be swaddled and break her arms free.  Miss Z likes to suck on her fingers and her favorite finger to suck on is her middle finger.

Little Miss Z's Birth Story

We found out on July 7, 2011 that we were pregnant and we were so excited.  We waited 37 weeks to meet little miss Z.  But not without some bumps along the way.  We had tons of doctors appointments we saw you in an ultrasound 5 plus times.  Every time we got to see you was wonderful.  We had some hospital visits once when mom caught a viral infection and had to go get fluids pumped back in.  That was wonderful because we got to listen to your heart beat for an hour.  We also got to hear you thump the monitors with your little feet.  We than had Non-stress tests with you the last couple of weeks you were in mommy.  Mommy went with Grandma M to a Non-stress test the week before you were born and they were worried about your little heart beat.  So they admitted me to the hospital for a 24 hours of monitoring your heart beat.  Mommy got worried and stayed an extra day because I didn't want to go home and have something go wrong.  Mommy and Daddy prayed that you would be healthy if they needed to deliver you early.  Mommy got a strong feeling while she was praying that everything was going to be okay.  Mommy got the steroid shots to help your lungs develop faster if in case they induced me at 36 weeks.  We went to Grandma M and Papa's house for the week before you were born.  We had doctor appointments every day.  Every other day we got to listen to your heart beat and the last Perinatologist than we saw called Dr. W and told him bring this little girl into the world on Monday February 20 and do no amino test.
Monday morning at 6am Hubby and I woke up to get ready by 7:00am to be at the Hospital.  We got to the hospital parking lot at 7 and we made it up to labor and delivery before 7:05am.  We asked for room number 4 because this room is the room that has so many windows to look out and it is very bright and that is the room we wanted to welcome our little girl into the world.  Mom got her IV and everything else hooked up to her before 7:30am.  Dr. W came in at 7:40 and by 7:45 my bag of waters had been broken.  Miss Z didn't like it at all her little heart beat went high.  But hey mine would to if all of sudden all the liquid I had been in for 37 weeks was all of a sudden draining out.  Miss Z got probed in the head with the monitors so that I wouldn't have to have the ones on the belly.  I asked for the epidural as soon as I could get it.  Aunt L was the first one to show up she brought mommy and daddy a goody bag of treats.  Grandma M was the next one to show up.  Than a couple of minutes later the nice guy who takes away all the pain showed up to give me an epidural.  By 9:00am we were rolling on with labor.  Than mommy's best friend J showed up to take pictures of this very memorable day.  We had a wonderful morning full of talking and laughter.  I would look at the monitor when I was having a contraction and say Mommy it really hurts, or that was a big one.  We joked about how the monitors in your head were anchoring you down because you loved to be head up in mommy and if you were to go head up we would just start pulling on the monitors.  By 12:30ish mom was dilated to a 5 so everything starts going faster after getting to a 5.  At 1:30pm the nurse came in to check me I was dilated to an 8.  By the time she got back down to the desk I called her back in to the room I was feeling pressure.  My mom and sister had me call her back because I wasn't sure if that was the right pressure I should be feeling.  The nurse checked me again at 1:40 had me do a practice push.  Than she said stop I have ears.  Miss Z was already to come.  They went to call Dr. W and he said he was 15 minutes away.  (later he told me that he was debating about going to the staff meeting at the other office so he went because he thought he had time)  I had to hold you in until Dr. W got there he showed up at 2:05 he was going to come over and talk to me when the all the nurses told him we don't have time you need to gown up and put on your gloves.  (all the nurses were in the room because I picked their biggest room and they were being trained on the new warming device plus they all knew my story of my little Angel L).  My sister L had asked if she could help deliver her niece hubby told her that she could so she went and asked Dr. W if she could help he said gown up and you can stand right here and help clean her off.  I was than able to push I felt the need to push and my nurse had wanted me to take a couple of deep breaths I had other plans I wanted to push.  Before I knew it my nurse was laughing hysterically she couldn't breath she was bending over with so much laughter.  Finally she got it together and at 2:09 Miss Z had entered this world it took a total of 3 pushes to bring you into this world.  Miss Z weighed 5 pounds 3 ounces and was 17 1/2 inches long.  Less than a minute later we heard your cry and than everyone started to cry.  I couldn't wait to see you and have you in my arms.  You were and are beautiful.  You were put on my skin and you put your little legs up stuck your butt up and looked like a little frog.  You looked up at me and my heart melted. All the nurses in the room were crying Grandma M was doing her little jig.  Grandma W was out in the hallway and said it was wonderful to hear your cry.  J had taken pictures of you entering this world and captured the special moment.
I can't believe that Miss Z is now 16 days old and is healthy.  We love her so much and are grateful to have her in our family.
