Jayden Noel Larsen
So after everything I had already went thru for this lil baby.. I ended up having to have a c-section. She was born on January 11, 2010 at 1:46pm. She weighed 8lbs 8oz, was 21inches tall and had a head cercumference of 38cm, but most of all.. she was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen in my whole entire life!
After spending 4 days in the hospital for recovery we got to go "home" (to Adams parents house). We got out on Friday the 15th. This was also Jayden's first car trip.. and of course it was in a mustang :). Since the hospital would only allow 4 visitors total we chose my mom, my brother, and adams parents. So we had to take her to see my fam since no one got to come into the hospital to see her.
The next day I started to have trouble breathing (I thought it was some sort of allergic reaction to my oxycodone). On Sunday the 17th I went into the ER, where i had numerous tests done.. including blood work, a chest x-ray, eeg, and a cat scan. My blood pressure was extremely high so they gave me some medication thru my IV.. this made me sick (and for the next 2 days i was unable to hold ANYTHING down including water). I was admitted to the hospital and was put on many different medications to try to figure out what was wrong with me. Over the next few days I was very ill and tired. I slept most of the days. Eventually my IV went bad and since i had just had a c-section (and that nurse was a retard and poked every other place on my body to try to get an iv in) I was pretty much tapped out. They had to put a pickline into my upper right arm in order to give me a dose of Magnesium Sulfate. This being the treatment for preclampsia.
After 6 days of hospitalization (a few without my baby... i was too out of it to know if she was even there anyway). I was released and put on blood pressure medication. I was later told that I had post partum preclampsia. I also had an infection in my c-section incesion.
She was worth it all.. but man what a ride!! If we do end up deciding to have another baby.. I will have to go thru everything all over again.. from the cerclage to the c-section, and even the preclampsia. We haven't for sure decided on no more kids but it pretty much looks that way. But thats ok.. Jayden is perfect and I'm very happy with her. (not that I dont want another baby.. cuz i'd love one but if we end up not having another one.. im good with just her).
