Sydnee Eden Leifermann Is Here! Here Is Her Birth Story...
I was scheduled to be induced on December 2nd at 5:00 in the morning. The day and night before was hard to get through as I was very anxious, nervous, scared, excited, etc to go through the delivery process and meet my daughter. I have to say I did not sleep one hour, making that morning very hard to go through. We arrived at the Women Center at 6 in the morning, due to them being short on staff. We got checked in and comfortable in our birthing suite. We were both impressed on the suite we got, it was very large and nice...perfect place to have a baby! They began the induction process right away, taking my vitals, giving me an IV and doing the epidural. Up until the epidural I was very cold, shivering and it seemed I was not able to get warm. Lucas left the room for a couple minutes to go to the bathroom and within that matter of time, things went down hill.
I began sweating, very hot, and lost all the color in my lips and face. I felt as though I was about to vomit. Before I know it, 3 more nurses were in my room flipping me to my side, putting an oxygen mask on me and rushing me to the OR. Sydnee's heart rate went from 160 to 40 within those matter of seconds and they were worried about her, so they rushed me for a C-Section.
While laying in the operating room, it was hard to concentrate on everything happening around me. I was so hyped up on drugs and it seemed to happen so quick. Sydnee Eden finally made her appearance at 7 59 a.m. and very healthy! She was 7 lbs 11 oz and 20 inches long. I wasn't able to see her right away, but everyone was saying how much hair she had and they weren't lying! LOL, she has tons of it, must of got it from her daddy!
We have been in the hospital for the past 3 days and it has been a process for me, just being able to recover. Sydnee couldn't be better, she sleeps constantly and is very active when she isn't...looking around and being observant. She loves to cuddle and has a very stubborn attitude! LOL, but we are so blessed to have her in our lives and it is hard to imagine life without her...hard to believe how much you can love someone! She is my angel and I can't wait to spend every second, minute, hour, day, etc with her! Thanks for all the love and support of our family and friends, we couldn't have done it without you! And we can't wait for you all to meet her! Love you all!
