Welcoming Baby Mia Angeline

Hey everyone! So I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday with your loved ones. I gave birth the Monday that passed 12/20/10 to a beautiful baby girl, Mia Angeline. She weighed 8 lbs 6 oz. I had a c-section scheduled because we found on last Thursday that she was in frank breech position and I was already 39 weeks at the time. My midwife suggested doing an aversion, a procedure in which the doctor will turn the baby from the outside. There are many risks involving this technique, like the baby's placenta detaching or hemorrhaging so I obviously opted not to do the procedure. Plus, I also imagined the baby being turned with not much fluid or room. I also did research online and they said that aversion is best to be done before week 38, so it was definitely too late.

I've never been in a hospital nor have I ever had to go under the knife, so you can imagine how nervous I was when I found out I had to get a c-section. However, my nerves were the least of my concern when I found out that if I wait till I go into labor, my baby's head could get stuck which could be fatal for her. After finding this out, I was even more stressed and panicked. Being a first time parent/mom, all I could think about was my baby's safety.

Anyways, what matters is that my baby is here now. She is healthy, happy, and eats plenty! Here are some baby pics...

I will try to post again as soon as I can, although I cannot promise that it will be makeup related. Happy Holidays!
