Birthing Story....Part 2

We left off with Nate in scrubs and tears in my eyes heading to c-section. Once in the room I was swamped with nurses, doctors, etc. The drugs were really sitting in and my Dr. walked in the room. She reassured me and then begin the procedure. It was he weirdest feeling ever. I could feel tugging and pulling and stress on my body but felt no pain. Nate was by my side the whole time....although he was amazed by the surgery so he watched. Yes, he was in awww of the whole thing and kept his eyes on the surgery. He watched Tucker be pulled out and tried to describe it to me. I am so glad I was awake for the whole procedure...it made it feel more real. Tucker was out and screaming with in 5 mins. The nurses swept him away right after momma got a look. He had dark hair and was beautiful.That was for sure a momment we will never forget. It took 15 or 20 more mins to get me all prepared and then we were off to recovery.
Nate had Tucker in his arms for the whole recovery process but right then I knew everything I had indured was well worth it. The recovery was not easy...I was in a lot of pain for the first 24 hours. The only advice I have is get up...get up and walk and fight back at the pain. I am on day 4 and feel like a whole new person from day 2. I just get up and try not to lay more than an hour or so without walking out the pain.
We are home safe and sound now and everyone is doing great.Tucker had a couple nights where he wasn't sure if he wanted to sleep or not but I think we might have gotten the bug out.
I will be uploading pics tomorrow of my beauitful baby...
