View Full Version : Newest Addition!

Some of you may remember that I was due 12/15. We were doing a planned repeat c-section and last week, it was scheduled for Tuesday the 4th. Well, apparently my child wanted to pick their own birthday! I went into hard labor early Monday morning. By the time we got there I was dilated to a 6 and was being prepped for an emergency c-section! We got in the OR at 11:15 and the baby was born at 11:37! Luckily my Dr's office is across the street so she was able to deliver! We thought it might be a girl, but we weren't positive... it is indeed a GIRL!
Arianna Noel weighed 7lbs 4oz and 21 inches long. She is perfect with no health problems. Her big brother is in :heart: with her right now and can't get enough! Well, we're all in love with her! We're both doing well- we left the hospital today and are now at home recovering. Oh and the going home outfit was of course a Minnie Mouse sleeper from DisneyShopping lol!

Here are a few pictures of our new daughter! Thanks for letting me share!

Oh she is a cutie already! What is the pronunciation on the first name. I'm thinking something like Air-e-awna. It looks like a lovely name.

Seeing as how Carla was one of our very first members, I have added some new baby smilies in honor of Arianna.

Awwww!!!!!!!! Congratulations Carla!!!!! :stork-girl:

She is absolutely darling - look at all that hair!! Just beautiful!!! Thank you for sharing and I hope your recovery goes well. I had two c-sections as well and I will say the second time around was a wee bit easier...I sort had a better idea of what I could and couldn't do, so it seemed easier. Take care!!

12-05-2007, 08:32 PM
Congrats! She is absolutely beautiful! Glad to hear you both are home and doing well.

Congrats Carla! Your children are beautiful! Thank so much for sharing w/us!! I'm sure you have PLENTY to do & yet you made time for us!!

Thank you Tricia for the adorable smilies!!!

Thank you all so much for the well wishes!! We feel very blessed to have our two children!! We really included Daniel and made him feel part of her birth and it has really paid off! He is doing so well with her! He loves watching her sleep and holding her hands. He thinks she is cool and "so cute". He told me today that he is "glad she came out of Mama's belly and that Mama is home and doing well". :heart: It has been great for DH to have some real quality time with Daniel as well. He is a programmer for Pier 1 and able to work from home a little so he did that today and will tomorrow which has been a great help. The only thing I'll complain about is that he didn't get my pain meds filled until this morning so I wasn't feeling too hot :( . But everything is good now! Recovery time seems to be going better the second time around and I'm sure I'll be feeling much better by the weeend.

Thank you all again for the well wishes and for allowing me to share with you! :heart:

How beautiful!!!! I love her name!! Daniel looks so proud. :love:

Congratulations to all of you!! :hugs:

Congrats on the birth of your beautiful baby girl. I have to also say that the second c-section was much easier for me than the first. Maybe the fact I didn't have 43 hours of labor first was part of that but I have heard many others say the same. I hope you are recovered soon. Rest and don't over do it.

12-07-2007, 07:03 AM
Congrats on your new little girl. She's adorable. Daniel looks so happy. He's a cutie. Hope you feel well soon.
