I can't believe that Camille is 6 weeks old already..almost 7 weeks. These last 7 weeks have been the most wonderful and exhausting weeks of our whole lives. We are so very blessed to have Camille and I could not imagine life without her in it. Cami keeps me so busy, and I never want to put her down, so finding time to blog has been impossible for me. I want to take the time to catch up now before I get too far behind. I am going to post the birth story first so I have it down for me to remember. Then I will follow with updates and milestones from the last few weeks.
Camille Rose was born on February 9th, 2010 at 5:50 p.m. by cesearean section at Gonzales Memorial Hospital. She weighed 8 lbs 3.8 oz and was 21 inches long. She had a 13 inch chest and a 13 inch head with a head full of hair.
Having a C-section was a weird experience because you can feel them tugging but it doesn’t hurt. I remember thinking that it seemed like it took forever to get her out once they had me opened up. At my one week checkup, Dr. Walker mentioned that she was just as hard to deliver by C-section as vaginally. She had made it pretty far down during labor and she was sunny side up (face up), which makes it harder to deliver apparently. He also said after he delivered her that there was not a problem with the cord, which was a relief.
