Baby Boy is Here! Meet Anthony!
Anthony was born at 39 weeks 1 day a week ago Friday morning via c-section. It wasn’t my plan after having two mom surgical births but we had to make a last minute decision for the safety of him.
After my routine weekly visit to the doctor on Wednesday, following my final ultrasound, the doctor determined that his position was breech and the umbilical cord was wrapped around his neck. Having just a day and a half to wrap my head around the situation was pretty intense and even after his birth it was strange to me that he was already born in such a short time. More on this later, but if you’ve had a c-section, you may know what I am referring to.
I have been resting at home since Monday and the recovery is much different. I am definitely struggling with not being able to pick up my girls or do much of anything. I am not a stay in bed kind of gal.
He is a week old as of today and we are all doing well. His big sisters just love him SO much and so far we are settling in to our groove as a family of 5 with a lot of help from family and friends. It really does take a village and we are thankful to have the support.
