Default Baby Arabella is here!!!

I am so excited to share pics of my new little one with you! Arabella was born November 2nd at 4:23pm. She was being difficult and did NOT want to come out!!! Of the 3 pushes I actually did, 2 of them resulted in her heart rate going down into the 50s...not good. Each time we had a flood of nurses rush into the room to offer additional assitance. I am amazed by the care we received during labor and delivery...I could not have asked for a better team of people to be there during this trying time. After the 3rd push and heart decelleration, we were taken into the O.R. incase things continued to go downhill...I knew then that I was going to have a C-section. During the section they found out that little Arabella had the cord wrapped around her neck in addition to being sunny-side up. After about 10 minutes in the operating room, Arabella was out and healthy!

She is a beauty and we absolutely love her!!!

She is a cutie...and looks like she will be full of vinegar by the last picture. I have a picture similar to my last DD and she is full of vinegar. She is a joy also.

Congrats and enjoy...time flies by. My second and last DD is already 4, my oldest is 8.

I would agree with the vinegar! She knows what she wants and when she wants it, she wants it right away!

I'm feeling much better than a couple weeks ago when we first got home. My incision is terrific, you can barely see it! We're getting a nice amount of sleep at night, which I'm so thankful for. And I have an awesome husband who is terrific with both her and myself. He's taking 2 months off work to be here at home with us.

Yep, just like my lil one. They are both sweeties though!! Does she have a lil' red in her hair? I was showing my DH and he thought it looked like it. Our lil' one has red hair also.

You know, rereading your original post, I had the same thing. Tenny did not want to come out. Dr. said no more pushing because it would brake her neck. Emergency C-Section. She did not want to come out. She was so stuck, they called a male Dr. in to pull her out...after 20 minutes trying to get her out, so was out.

She is a red-head! I only pushed 3 times and 2 of the 3 resulted in her heart rate dropping. She was sunny-side up and they found the cord around her neck during the C-section. Even during that she didn't want to come out...they had to really pull her out!

She's been fussy today and not wanting to fall asleep. She seems to be in this cycle of eat, doze and eat again for the last couple days. She's not really napping for a good couple hours at a time like she needs.

She is adorable....sorry for you but thankful for her that you guys ended up having a C section, much better outcome in the long run. Hope you are feeling good and up and about soon.

I noticed this thread because my nephew and his wife just named one of their twin girls Arabella...except not really since they spelled it Airabella for reasons known only to them! lol! Anyway, congrats on the safe arrival of your beautiful new future stamper! Jan

Congratulations, Alana!!! She is a cutie!

Do you remember meeting my SIL, Tisha, at the shoe box swap last spring? She had a girl too! Zoe Nicole was born Oct 13th.

Enjoy your new little one!

I have to admit when I first saw the title of this thread that I thought Emily created a new Bella stamp!

How glad I am that I was mistaken... not that Emily's Bella's aren't cute, but your little girl is SO MUCH CUTER! What a blessing! So glad everything turned out ok for you!

I remember Tisha! We actually saw each other at an Infant Feeding class at the hospital. How is she doing with her new little one? I should send her an email...

You should! Being a new mom can be a little overwhelming so it's always nice to be in contact with some others in the same situation. I'm sure you two have tons to talk about!
