Thanks everyone for all your comments below!
I’m making my way back onto the computer slowly, so here is one of the first photos, taken my Mr.Q the morning after, as I was still stoned from post-op drugs.
Yep, she was a c-section. I was in labour for over 12 hours and, despite a couple of good kicks of pitocin, not co-operating. Add into that, the fact that she was born at 10lb and 1oz, and it seems only reasonable that things really weren’t progressing!
So, at 1923 on Jun 6, babyQ was born with a little help from a surgical team and we both got to spend the following three days in hospital.
I’ll be around, off and on, as sleep and pain meds dictate!
Also see: Mr.Q’s videos for more (nothing graphic, I’ve been assured, though I’ve yet to see them myself…)
