Huge change of plans
« on: January 02, 2011, 12:03:02 PM »
So my plans were to come into the hospital Sunday at 5am so they can hook me up to the AZT for at least 6 hours before the surgery.  Well 9:21pm I started with contractions which were about 15 min apart but I knew it didn't matter I was having a c-section so just get to the hospital.  By the time i got her the contractions were 1-2 min apart.  They rushed me into the c-section I did not get to have the AZT for the time I should have.  They did everything once in the OR.  Scary thought since they do it for the baby sake. 
She did get her 1st dose of meds shortly after shse was born but they will get her a 6-12 schedule so it is easy to remember.
Anyway she was 7lbs 3oz and adorable. 
Thank you all for listening

Hello

Congratulations!

Since your viral load is undetectable and you had a C-section the AZT is probably neither here nor there in terms of reducing transmission risk :-)

i have been talking to you all along, and I have to tell you that she is so beautiful!  love to you....  Just to take care of my girl, the babies name is indeed Gabrielle, she is the most beautiful sight.  Fran is having some lower back pain, but I think she goes home today or tomorrow.

Thank you all.  Yes as Florida said her name is Gabriele and she was born 7lbs 3oz.  She is the most perfect little angel.  She has been wonderful, not a crier, she fusses a little when hungry cries a bit when she needs to be changed.  I go home tomorrow.
I know the AZT was not so much of an issue being that I was undetectable and with the c-section, I guess I was just hoping to have every angle covered. 
I am having alot of lower back pain which I think is just because I was in labor and it was in my back quite a bit and i also have a bad back to begin with. 
Bare with me for the picture I am not sure if I am sure I know how so let me see.

Always great to see a happy ending here :) - I can not stress enough that childbirth is a freaking miracle, and that no man can really understand it. You made a person! A PERSON!

As you can tell by my non-avatar, I am useless at the moment. I bet Leatherman can help though! He goes the Photobucket route, due to changes in the AidsMeds software.

I wanna learn all that, and as soon as i shake the residue of a singularly bad Xmas offa me, I will. But between leatherman and MattietheDamned, well.

since as "uncle mIkIe", who has never (thank god! and never will) changed a diaper, I am much more interested in children after they're 3 and can speak, so I wasn't paying much attention to this thread. I'm so glad to see you got the picture stuff figured out, because damn is Gabriele a cutie! Congrats and all that stuff! What a great way to start out the year!

don't forget to call me in a few years, long after that diapering-period is over of course :D and one day when you're tired of playing 1000 Questions, and I'll be happy to baby-sit. I'll dig out the box of toys, games, and projects that my nieces and nephews have outgrown and your daughter and I will have a great time while you get a break.   ;)
