Pregnancy #1 edd
6-7cm both sides
We are expecting we are due April 28th, 2008! Thank you Dr.
Levi we are so excited and cant wait to see this little one!
After about 25 minutes we arrived in Rio Bravo at the hospital De Las Americas Dr Levi was waiting he said that he could have me in for surgery by 2:00pm that very afternoon if I had not eaten. After reading many couples have decided not to eat just incase they could get moved up. I had not eaten, we waited about 20 mins in the waiting area and then were taken back to our room #10 at the end of the hall. A few minutes later the nurse came in and started my IV, and then the doctor came in and went over my health history and told Gary my DH that he should go in with me. He was not going to but after Dr. Levi talked to him he came with. I m not sure what time we actually went back but a nurse came and got me, put a blue hat on my head and on my feet she put on my feet the wheeled me off to surgery.
In the surgery room they had me get on the table and roll into a
fetal position told me not to move, the Dr younger brother was on
the other side he was telling me not to be nervous it will be ok.
Thatís easy for them to say they are on the other side. They
gave me some kind of sleepy juice then I was not real clear on
anything I donít even remember the epidural. My DH came in with us I
was awake during the almost all the surgery and my husband showed me
the small plastic piece that was put into block the tube, I could
not believe how small it was. Then all the tugging on my tubes and
the surgery started to get to me and they put me out I donít
remember anything after that really. When I came through I was in my
room and very uncomfortable from all the gas and epidural in my back
was driving me crazy. Doctor came in to tell me how everything went
and that the surgery was successful. That I had 6-7cm on each side
and that everything looked good. I was so hungry and when they
brought us dinner it was Jell-O and broth for me I was disappointed.
I asked for more Jell-O and tea that seemed to help. I was very
uncomfortable through out the night. Not being able to move is very
frustrating to me, I had to find things to throw at my DH so he
could go get the nurse to give me pain meds. Thank god my DH was
good about it. What a strange feeling to not be able to feel your
legs that really freaked me out, I was so glad when it started to
ware off and I could feel my feet. In the morning I got some real
breakfast boy was I happy about that, I gobbled it right up in no
We chose to stay at the La Mansion nice place great food, and
wonderful service. I stayed down and rested for the rest of the day
and watched TV. The next day the doctor called to see if I was up to
a trip and I was feeling great that morning. We went for a walk
through the town of Rio Bravo and at about 1:00pm the shuttled
showed up to take us to Progresso to shop wow what an awesome place
full of all kinds of wonderful things you could bring home. We
shopped for about 11/2 then we headed back to Rio Bravo. We ate the
best food from the restaurant in the hotel. The food here will never
taste the same.
