The girl who is looking at the stars

It turned out the anthologist had a faster way to numb me up. But it seem like it took forever to get it in. My new nurse name was Wendy. Which was very confusing in my state. 

Finally the numbness kicked in. I was not able to feel my legs which was so nice that I fell asleep. Dr S worked his magic and the baby was finally born.  She was whisked away to be cleaned. I saw her briefly and she look so big! She turned out to be 7 lbs 11 oz! Everyone was like whoa that’s a big baby! 

Then after an eternity the nurse wheeled me to the recovery room. I over heard a conversation about how the baby was looking at the stars. Turned out that even though the baby was head down she was in brow position. Her head was down but she’s looking up. If I didn’t have the c section I would be pushing forever. It happens to 20 Percent of heads down births.

And most of these cases end up in emergency c sections. 

Anyway it’s all good now. And she looks awesome!
