Stitches are out...

Well, we are back home and the waiting game begins:)! I wish I could say it was a piece of cake but the removal was horrendous. I was so proud of myself for enduring what I did and in somewhat of a calm fashion. Dr. K was amazing and while the first stitch was fairly easy, he lost the second stitch and had a time getting to it and getting it out. After the first stitch he talked about doing an epidural and I was thinking no way, I have made it this far let's just get this done. So I squeezed Jeff with all my might and we finally got it out. He couldn't go back to check any dilation, he said it didn't matter at this point where I was, there is some scarring that needs to break away so that will help her not to come as fast. I had to lay there and recover for a little while and then got on the monitor and all looked good. I came home to a hot bath and some tylenol and I am going to lay low today. I am so relieved it is over with and now we can just play the waiting game like any other normal pregnant person! I wonder when she will make her debut...I am SO excited now that that horrific procedure is over with!
Thanks for all the love and prayers this morning, it meant so much to me!! I will keep everyone updated as we go

You are a rock star!!! I would have never been able to do something like that without an epidural. So happy that it went smoothly and now you can relax and enjoy the ride!!

I pray that Emily comes when she is ready and that you get to enjoy every minute of your precious girl entering the world. Can't wait to hear the great news!!
