We went in to get induced this past Monday morning on Mallory's actual due date but things of course did not work out the way we planned but instead just the way they were supposed to. After over 24 hours on pitocin and then cervidil things were actually going in the opposite direction. Mallory's blood pressure dropped way low with each contraction that next morning so our doctor did C-section before too much distress happened for her. Turns out there would have been no way she would have come vaginal the way she was postitioned and with the placement of the cord so it all worked out for the best. I would have to say C-section was weird in the sense that I did not get to actually see Mallory and be with her for what seemed like forever which was pretty hard for me. Having to have a C-section was one of my biggest fears throughout the pregnancy but so thankful for such a great doctor and his team that made it such a good experience- as well as being cut open can be right? We had a long week in the hospital and finally got discharged late Thursday night. We have just been following Mallory's lead with everyting, she is such a good baby and has taken it pretty easy on us these first 5 days.
