I am finding my first post back here very emotional. As I sit here crying I guess I never truley believed I would be posting our SUCCESSFUL SUBSEQUENT PREGNANCY & BIRTH STORY!
Our Little Reagan was born via c/s on December 30 at 10:35am weighing in at 7lbs 11oz!
Reagan turned out to be more of a miracle then we knew. Our c-section started on time and went wonderfully, However, When my Peri located my Uterus I heard him say to the Resident that what he was looking at was the beginning of a Uterus Rupture. My old incision was open a couple inches and the amniotic sack was already emerging. With that said, we thank God for us following our tummy's and deciding on a repeat c/s. When Reagan made her grand entrance I finally felt like I have found my purpose and peace in life. I couldn't be more proud of DH and the little life we made. She is absolutely everything we didn't know we were missing.
My recovery has gone well and Reagan so far has been a true blessing. For now, she has her Dad's laid back personality. My Peri did visit us and after reviewing our case does not feel I will ever qualify for a VBAC. Which wasn't earth shattering for me. He did say if we chose to try again considering my pregnancy history he will follow our pregnancy the same way as he did with Reagan.
So with all that said, we are home and I am wearing Cabbage Leaves proud in my Sports bra. I am ENGORGED and am loving the cabbage leaf relief!
I can not thank each and everyone of you for the unbelievable support you offered to me throughout my pregnancy and as I continue to travel through the grieving process of our darling Jack.
Many hugs & wishes to all of you!
Erin & Reagan
I will post her site when I get it updated!
