After all that trouble, Dominic was delivered via C-section yesterday afternoon, a little after 1 pm. He’s 8 lbs and 51 cm long and perfectly healthy, thank goodness!
As for me, let’s just say the Cesarean was about as bad as I’d suspected and recovery is . . . well, I have no idea how a woman decides to have another child after this. I don’t see Dominic having a younger sibling at this point unless they can guarantee me a vaginal birth next time and that’s not likely! But I’m glad he is here safe and sound and healthy. He’s absolutely adorable and I’m enjoying snuggling with him as much as is possible when dealing with this much pain.
